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!
