Thanks for visiting my website to learn more about my counseling services. I pride myself on my ability to establish a warm, safe, friendly, comfortable and productive counseling relationship with my clients.

I believe positive change is always possible, regardless of how "big" or entrenched the problem may seem. I am upbeat, action-oriented, pragmatic, and solution-focused.

I have taken advanced training in IFS (Internal Family Systems) an approach I find incredibly useful for helping to understand and heal problematic (and often long-term) patterns of belief ("I'm not good enough/lovable" "I'm a fake"), and behavior (over-eating, over-spending, problematic drinking or drugs, anger outbursts) but honor and utilize other approaches such as ACT and Mindfulness and Self Compassion as well. 

I do not use a "cookie cutter" or "one size fits all" approach to counseling. You are, after all, unique.

I have helped people struggling with anxiety/depression be "happy for the first time in twenty years" and those caught in compulsion understand, control and resolve their underlying emotional triggers. 

Regardless of whether the problem is something specific (like a phobia or life transition) or general (like anxiety, depression, sense of worth or relationship conflicts) most people benefit from getting some guidance to find new solutions. Like the old joke says: "The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over, and expecting a different result."

Chances are you've been working really hard on solving your problem. My job is to help you find a different, more productive way to do it.

"What lies behind us and what lies before us

are tiny matters compared to what lies within us"

Ralph Waldo Emerson
