My Approach

My approach to individual and family counseling is to listen to what is being communicated through exploring your thoughts, longings, behaviors, symptoms, dreams and stories. I often strive to help clients find their own inner strengths and wisdom. I intermix practical tools with time to process to gain insight. Therefore sessions are often active and include skills to practice between sessions. My ultimate goal is to create a respectful, honoring, safe and confidential environment.

My Background

I have training and experience in working with individuals, groups, and families within a wide age range. I led groups that support children and parents through the separation/divorce process. I also have a Masters in Counseling and a certificate in Interpersonal Neurobiology. I am LGBTQ affirming and have done trainings in this area. Along with all this, I have my own personal experience with the counseling process. This provides me with the skills and compassion to sit with clients during the change and healing process.
