My respect for the people I serve and commitment to their empowerment draws me to the Collaborative Therapy of Harlene Anderson, in which client and therapist become joint partners in furthering the change process. I believe that all individuals possess the capacity to change and we work together to build hope and possibilities in the therapeutic process.

The Narrative Therapy of Michael White has also influenced me greatly. Clients are encouraged to re-write their own life stories which may start out as pessimistic and hopeless to ones that contain positive and optimistic outcomes.

My expertise involves couples and family therapy as well as individual psychotherapy.

I incorporate the practice of Mindfulness in my work and find it useful in combatting anxiety and depression as well as promoting an appreciation of the world around us through our five senses. I have developed the acronym POAL—pause, observe, accept, let go—as a guide to mindful practice

Couples counseling, also known as marriage counseling, is a type of counseling for intimate partners.

Here's the thing; children live in families.  This means that if one family member is struggling, it's likely everyone is being impacted in some way.  We offer family therapy to help address the impact that everyone's struggles may have on one another

Individual Therapy (Psychotherapy) Individual therapy is a joint process between a therapist and a person in therapy. Common goals of therapy can be to inspire change or improve quality of life. People may seek therapy for help with issues that are hard to face alone. Individual therapy is also called therapy, psychotherapy, psychosocial therapy, talk therapy, and counseling. Therapy can help people overcome obstacles to their well-being. It can increase positive feelings, such as compassion and self-esteem.
