We need people in our lives with whom we can be as open as possible. To have real conversations with people may seem like such a simple, obvious suggestion, but it involves courage and risk.” ― Thomas Moore


_MG_1215e5I believe everyone should be able to have access to counseling. As a licensed therapist in private practice, I want to offer quality counseling at a reasonable rate.

I will collaborate with you to help bring healing, meaning, and greater satisfaction in life.  We will set goals and find solutions together as a team. The first step to that process is to treat you with respect and compassion. 

The key to helpful psychotherapy is to recognize you in all of your individuality. With empathy as my main tool, I learn what matters to you and what your world is like. Doing so helps me to understand your strengths and values. Then, you and I together can figure out ways of bringing about the changes you want to see in life. For many people though, being truly recognized in therapy is a powerful and validating experience. In short, there is no cookie-cutter way to do psychotherapy but I can tailor treatment to you as a person.

My undergraduate studies were in Education and Social Sciences. That led to experience as an instructor working with adults (ESL), teenagers (SAT), and children (English). I also received an AAMFT (American Association of Marriage and Family Therapists) certification in the treatment of addiction.  

At one point or another we all could use help. Psychotherapy can be a valuable resource as part of your effort toward healing, meaning, and happiness.
