I strive to provide a safe nurturing space where your deepest fears and greatest dreams can be explored. Talking about your concerns through counseling can provide great relief, and professional feedback can stimulate new awareness, healing, and growth.

My counseling approach is strongly rooted in an interpersonal process focus, where I believe the relationship of counseling is the container that promotes change. In addition I integrate concepts from attachment theory, interpersonal neurobiology, mindfulness, internal family systems and focus on compassion in the healing process. EMDR is a powerful tool that may be incorporated where appropriate as well. You can read more about EMDR here.

Areas of Special Focus:

  • Adults
  • Self-Esteem/Worth
  • Trauma/PTSD
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Relationship Issues
  • Life Transitions (moving, job change, divorce, etc)
  • Codependency
  • Past Abuse (physical, emotional, verbal, sexual)
  • Creative Individuals
  • Grief and Loss
  • Personal Growth

Currently, I am not seeing any couples, children or adolescents. Please ask me for referrals if you are in need of these services.

New Client Paperwork
Before we start our first counseling session, I will need a little information about you. I have included my new client packet here for you to print out and bring with you already completed. I recommend you at least review the client agreement and privacy practices before your arrival so that you may have time to read these important documents carefully. You may also arrive about 15 minutes early and I will have the new client paperwork ready to be filled out in the waiting room.
