My Approach & Philosophy

I am direct, patient, accepting, able to follow most any communication style. I can help you set up and meet attainable goals, and provide a safe, controlled environment with minimal disruption to your daily life. I believe in helping you engage your mind, body and spirit to help you reach your greatest potential.

My approach depends on what you hope to accomplish, and what therapeutic models fit best to reach those goals. I work with clients to deconstruct negative thought patterns and behaviors and increase healthy thoughts, behaviors and attachments. I believe being authentic with each other and keeping a sense of humor about life and ourselves contribute greatly to therapeutic success.

My goal is to provide you with a safe space to be seen and heard, to help you recognize and navigate through past and current obstacles, and to offer insight and education that will help you live a fuller and more peaceful life.
