Welcome, and congratulations on taking the first step in working towards your goals and resolving your problems. Taking the first step is usually the hardest so you have already overcome one obstacle. I work from a strength-based reality approach. In other words, I believe that everyone has strengths and if we can identify those strengths together, we can perhaps help you to work through or manage your current concern. In addition, you are not defined by any problems that you have. Working from the reality base is just like it sounds. That is, we have to...

One of the things that makes me good at my profession lies in my early personal experience with therapy. In my mid twenties, I entered counseling with major personal and family issues to deal with. As an adult child of an alcoholic father coupled with my history of moving frequently, I had no idea how isolated I was in the way I thought the world worked. After a few years of getting my own house in order, I decided to change professions from broadcast journalism to psychotherapist. I successfully completed a masters program in clinical social work and entered ...

Hello and welcome. Thank you for reading my profile. I begin counseling by listening. Every person is unique and your experiences are different from others. I do not tell people what to do. Instead I will help you explore the possibilities that your problems reveal and guide you to choose the best path for yourself. Experience teaches me that people get stuck when the story of themselves doesn't match their current reality. The stuckness usually comes from believing that change is too hard or not possible based on past choices. The truth is we choose our...
