Counseling and Psychotherapy

People seek counseling and psychotherapy for many reasons, including:
  • Personal Growth
  • Low self-esteem
  • Relationship issues
  • Loss and grieving
  • Creative blocks
  • Anxiety
  • Life transitions (divorce, loss of job, menopause, etc.)
  • Depression or sadness
  • Health issues
  • Dissatisfaction with life or career
  • Resolving childhood issues or trauma

TreeIf you are struggling with any of these issues, then you are up against a necessary element of growth…CHANGE!

Did you know that…

Anxiety is essential to personal growth? It motivates us to explore, to discover, to understand more about ourselves and the world around us. This awakens...

Hope, a necessary factor in bringing our dreams to life. Hope nourishes us as we learn skills that will empower us in our growth, allowing us to know...

Joy, a by-product of integration and creativity. With joy, we are able to express ourselves more effectively and completely in our world.

By learning to listen to and use anxiety as a force for change, we can come to know the joy that life has to offer!

I believe that therapy must be focused on the strengths, rather than the weaknesses of the individual. By building upon inner resources, change becomes a process we can use to our advantage, rather than something to fear or avoid. I blend a unique, caring perspective with a solid foundation of technical skill to best serve my clients as a compassionate, effective therapist.

By accessing one’s inner wisdom with imagery and other techniques, and then learning cognitive restructuring methods to break dysfunctional thinking and behavior patterns, the process of transformation can be accelerated.

As we learn to let go of old ways of thinking and behaving, we move towards a more fulfilling expression of ourselves in the world. Many clients work through difficult issues in months (rather than years), and become empowered to accept the challenge of guiding their own growth and transformation.

My role is to catalyze and facilitate your transformation!

I am committed to the process of growth and change, and to encouraging others in their struggles with this effort.
