How can I help?

I encourage you to think about how you are strong, have dealt with past challenges, and support you in developing new skills and strategies. I can help you learn new ways to manage difficult emotions, reactions, and behaviors. When we understand ourselves better, life becomes easier. I support my clients in developing healthy ways of managing life transitions and change. We all need support and encouragement. You can feel better.

With 15 years of counseling experience, I utilize techniques from Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, and Systems, Strengths-based, and Psychodynamic theories of counseling. In working with relationships, I utilize approaches from the Gottman Method Couples Therapy (Level 2 training completed), Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy, as well as attachment theories. I am in the process of becoming a certified sex therapist and use approaches from the sex therapy field when working with both individuals and relationships. I look forward to developing a plan with you that will bring you back to the life you want to live.
