About My Clients
My clients are just like you and me, real people in the midst of living. I have a lifetime of experiences that have brought me to this moment in time. Living is a shared journey. Sometimes we need a companion a professional ear, to focus our thoughts, ideas, reflections of an event. My task with clients is as a fellow traveler, a facilitator of self-understanding and self -acceptance. My office is that “field”, the cross-roads of reality and your perceptions of being in the now.
My Background and Approach
Like you, I have a lifetime of experiences that have brought me to this moment in time. The journey is shared, not done alone. Sometimes we need a companion to focus our thoughts, ideas, reflections of an event. I see my task with clients as a fellow traveler, a facilitator of self-understanding and acceptance. We meet in the midst of life happening. I approach counseling as a dialogue, a conversation between equals. I draw from a diverse background of life experience, being an adult with Asperger's, reading and practice. My approach to counseling is wholistic by design. It is inclusive of nutrition, physical, spiritual, financial, family history, and mental health. My approach is person-centered, psychologically eclectic and integrative including techniques from various schools of thought, grounded in CBT. I am a Certified Daring Way Facilitator and Certified Financial Social Worker. I got tools, tricks and skills!
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I believe in humans, in the sanctity of all beings water, trees, birds n bees, and our oneness, the communities we share. I believe in showing up, setting boundaries to live and "work from a place of integrity and extend the most generous interpretation of intentions, words and actions of others" (Brown) on a day by day basis. I believe in me ... I believe in you!
