What we know for sure is that life is beautifully complex. No one is exempt from new challenges, life transitions, pain or conflict. While past experiences influence the present, what happens to you does not have to dictate your overall quality of life.
Emotional wellness requires dedicated attention and a commitment to being and doing better. When we begin to see challenges as purposeful moments urging us to learn, heal, grow and evolve, we can begin to accept, and even honor, our circumstances.
It's really all about YOU and your experience. Through individual, couple, family and group counseling, I work with clients on all aspects of mental/emotional health and soul-care.
My preferred therapeutic process and techniques are person-centered and rooted in both psychodynamic and cognitive/behavioral models.
My goal is to empower you by providing guidance, tools and insights to lead an emotionally healthy life.
I will work with you to help bring meaning and understanding to how your thoughts, beliefs and life experiences impact your sense of self, present challenges and future world.
