With all of the experiences and emotions life can throw our way, it can be trying at times to make sense of it all. Sometimes we need a hand finding our way. Counseling offers an opportunity to wade through what life has sent our way, to find ways to process to and cope with life’s lows as well as enjoy life’s highs to the fullest.
“What do you hope to get out your counseling experience?” I consider this one of the most important questions I ask new clients. As your therapist, I strive to holistically understand you, identify your core reasons for seeking counseling, and work alongside you in an empathic and empowering manner to help you make the changes you want to see in your life. I look forward to meeting you!
I am interested in using my therapeutic experience to help you, or you and your partner, or you and your family—just get unstuck. I will listen and work with you to make sense of things that, at first, may not appear to make any sense. My role is to provide more light for your path. By being here, you’re already taking that first step. And that is no small thing either.
As a counselor, my primary goal is to provide an environment of authenticity, in which one feels supported, understood, and free to explore what it means to be human.
Life is messy. It requires work that sometimes feels impossible. It is my goal to help clients identify the aspects of their life that they wish to celebrate, and those that they wish to change. Through compassion, understanding, and humor, we will work together in a judgment-free space to help you become your healthiest and happiest self.
Life happens: positive and negative, health and illness, serenity and chaos. None of us escape this fundamental truth of human existence. Counseling provides a safe, compassionate place to explore, share, gain insights and learn strategies to help cope with life. 30 years as an educator coupled with professional counseling training and education have led me to believe through acceptance we can all access our own personal wisdom to feel balanced and in control of our lives.
