About My Clients

My clients are often kids/teens/adults who are trying to find their way in the world, who might be experiencing depression, anxiety, loss, trauma, or family difficulties. My clients are often fearful of the process, but receive a refreshing and laid back approach to counseling. I work with individuals that want to improve their lives, or families that are struggling, and trying to find their way to grow together.

My Background and Approach

I have been in this field a little over 20 years, and am always called a "laid back" or "out of the box" therapist. I blend "talk therapy" with creative approaches, incorporating writing, play, and art into the process. I believe in meeting people where they are, and utilize an integrative approach to counseling. I often incorporate mindfulness practice, and teach individuals about how to stay present, and not fear difficult feelings. I believe this process is collaborative, and I both listen and offer insight. I use humor, metaphor, empathy, and a belief that we are capable of recovering. I believe our background and experience if fundamental to who we are, but that we also are ever changing.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that therapy is often about having a good fit, and that our family and culture shapes us. I have been both the client and the therapist, and I understand how important this relationship is. I have had my own struggles, and know that life is ever changing, at times stressful. It's ok to take on new roles, new relationships, and new goals. I know people can recover from some very dark places. Personally I work very hard in my life to stay present, and not run from difficult feelings. Often the difficult times teach us the most if we are open to the lessons. I hope you find a good match for you, and if I can help in this process please send me a message.
