I work with individuals, couples and families. My approach to the therapeutic process draws from philosophies and models that value relationship, honesty, self-responsibility, direct communication and the connection of the mind, body, spirit and emotions.
I value direct, interactive relationships with my clients. Therefore, I take a dynamic approach with clients, believing that energetic interactions and feedback are essential to support learning, growth and transformation. I work in partnership with clients, paying careful attention to the clients’ concerns and specific needs.
I work with a variety of problems and concerns including, but not limited to: depression, anxiety, addictions, eating disorders, alcoholism, trauma, couple and relationship issues, family concerns, life transitions, weight loss and work stress.
I use a variety of therapeutic models committed to transformation by way of addressing the “whole person” – mind, body, spirit and emotions. I nurture self-discovery through relationship, imaginative solutions and personal growth.
