Licensed Marriage Family Therapist

hello. Growing and expanding our selves can be exciting and daunting. Especially when we don't know where the next step will take us. Feeling safe is often a good first step, and trusting the therapist may take some time. So I applaud you in taking that first step and exploring your options.

My Approach

Meeting you where you are at, whether you are fearful of change, stuck , sad or angry is what I aim to do. We all experience these emotions at some point and its my job to support you feeling heard and safe. Its a humbling experience for us humans to share our vulnerability and fears and I do my best to be real and understanding of one's pain. Its my commitment as a therapist to share a genuine understanding and interest in clients who are also teachers in the therapeutic relationship. Research has shown us that the relationship between the client and therapist is a lot more significant than the techniques used in therapy.All that said I do have a very wide spread of training and techniques which are explained in more detail on my website Mindfulness and hypnotherapy tend to be approaches from which clients report a quicker and deeper access to intuition and wisdom. However, again every client is different with a unique lesson to share and lesson to learn.
