I believe that counseling is at its best when the process is collaborative and creative. It's my role to understand your concerns and the impact they have upon your life. From there, we work together to use your strengths in a way that feels right to you and is effective in creating the change you wish to see. My work is highly relational and influenced by cognitive behavioral, family of origin and developmental theories.
Working with Adults
My education and experience has provided me with a great number of skills and resources that can be helpful to individuals. Ultimately, you are the expert on you and my job is to provide guidance and assistance so you can achieve the results you desire. I am deeply interested in understanding your situation and will work with you on developing plans of action.
Working with Children and Families
I am a Child Mental Health Specialist (CMHS) which was achieved through extensive study and work with children and families. I can assist you in understanding and addressing issues surrounding your child's behavioral changes, mood issues, grief and loss, and recovery from trauma.
I am fully qualified and experienced in providing supervision to therapists who are working towards licensure or beginning the process of developing their own practice. If you are someone who is interested in this, please contact me so we can discuss it further.
