Philosophy

 You don't have to be in crisis to seek counseling. Sometimes the goal is more about going deeper, a self discovery process.  Maybe  you're looking to resolve feelings or develop better coping skills.  You may be looking to explore a new direction or life choice. My goal is to provide a safe place for self discovery and healing.  There is no judgement, no preordained directives. Everybody has their own idea of what healthy feels and looks like, what works and doesn't work in their life. I'd like to be a part of your exploration.  I use a variety of evidenced based techniques and  best be described as eclectic. A cornerstone of my work is mindfulness.  Click Here  for more information.  Recovery is a process, it does not happen all at once, but in bits and pieces. Putting those pieces together to form the life we want is the work.

Counseling is about connection.  If you don't feel comfortable with your therapist, how will you allow yourself to be vulnerable? Counseling is similar to embarking on a journey.  There's anxiety about starting out, it can feel overwhelming and it takes courage to leave behind the familiar.  The process evokes both positive and negative emotions and often reminds us that we can't control everything.   It can  be both  tiring and exhilarating and you can be surprised by things you learn along the way.  If we persevere, we are usually changed by the experience itself.   But nothing changes and no discoveries are made without beginning...Find out more about the work I do HERE.
