I have explored the mind-body connection since 1981. I use healing and recovery models of therapy that respect my clients' strength and potential. I believe that every individual finds meaning in their own unique way, so I practice a broad variety of creative short term solution focused methods as well as in depth long-term approaches.
My therapeutic approach is begins with the knowledge that a strong therapeutic relationship is the ground in which healing and growth occurs. Then I integrate decades of training in the ever evolving body of knowledge and experience about facilitating positive change. I am a proficient and non-judgmental therapist with respect and unconditional positive regard for anyone who seeks help. I have success in creating a safe and comfortable environment to resolve trauma, entertain new possibilities, and try out new behaviors.
Therapy is not one size fits all. I honor my clients as unique, with their own history, culture, values, traditions, and beliefs.
I know that psychotherapy is an important investment of a person or family's time, energy, and money. I believe it should produce positive results.
