About My Clients

I feel very strongly that we can let what happens in our lives make us angry, resentful and afraid, or we can embrace these events as a way to grow stronger, yet softer, and end up being more open to where we need to be in life.

My Background and Approach

Since receiving my Master’s Degree in Clinical Social Work in 1992 from Walla Walla University, I have discovered that insight can be found in almost every area of our lives, if we know where to look for it. My approach to therapy has been influenced greatly by Carl Rogers, Aaron Beck, John Gottman, and Pema Chödrön. My training includes CBT (Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy) for depression & anxiety from the Beck Institute as well as completing Level 3 Practicum Training in Gottman Method Couples Therapy.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I feel strongly that we can do this together by mastering a few important Life Goals: Face life openly (what you avoid imprisons you); don’t deceive yourself; accept yourself as you are; stop trying to prove yourself; and last but not least, don’t let your past control your future. I believe that we we need to be present and honest with ourselves in order to effectively deal with our problems.
