Each one of us possesses problem-solving strengths. In times of transition and stress, these strengths can seem dormant. Therapy can uncover and further develop personal resiliency. I help people enhance their unique coping strategies, to move toward a life of integrity and strength. I believe therapy is a collaborative effort, with your skills, life experience and hopes an important factor in how our sessions proceed. It takes a lot of courage to start therapy. I am continually awed by the people I see in counseling. It's an honor to be involved in this work.

REACHING FOR RESILIENCE: I enjoy working with people to help them to meet the challenges they are facing by accessing their own coping resources. Obstacles such as depression, anxiety and low self esteem can make it difficult to deal with life challenges. Helping people overcome such obstacles is often part of ongoing therapy. Although making changes requires motivation and hard work, humor, creativity and connectedness can not only lighten, but also enlighten the journey. When people begin to make progress in meeting a present challenge, their confidence is enhanced. Reaching for resilience is indeed within reach.

I’ve made my work helping individuals navigate how to connect and reclaim parts of themselves they may have thought were lost to anxiety, stress, low motivation, depression, chronic pain, or anger and resentment. We are all human and none of us choose hardship, and yet we still experience it. Distress and pain are part of the human experience. It’s what we do with these experiences that is important. I work with my clients to help them find their way through life’s obstacles and make change that is consistent with their values – what really matters to them.

I view individuals from a psychodynamic perspective (insight oriented approach that looks at past patterns and experiences and how they affect current relationships and behavior). However, I work with you based on where you are functioning and use a variety of therapeutic techniques. An effective working relationship is the most important factor in therapy and that is what we work on at the beginning of treatment and continue to assess throughout our work together. I view the therapeutic process as a collaborative effort and appreciate feedback from you about your goals and progress in treatment.

I also have a background working with young people that struggle with chronic pain, chronic illness or significant injury. The mental health piece of physical healing is often overlooked. In reality it can be the most significant piece of the healing.
