My Approach

My approach is rather straightforward. I meet people where they are at and allow the process to be collaborative in nature. I believe strongly that clients know themselves best and my role is to help a client understand who they are, reclaim a healthy sense of self and move forward in strength and insights. I believe in a holistic approach, meaning that both discovery and solutions can be found in any area of a person's life so addressing body, mind and soul is essential. My passion for supervising comes from a deep commitment to give back to the community that nourished and educated me. I have been both consumer and provider, arriving at a competent place of knowing when someone is right for the field and when they are not. My core tools are Narrative Therapy, Person-Centered, Cognitive Behavioral and Internal Family Systems. I am the sole owner of my business therefore, make my own appointments. Consultations are also done via phone or in 30 minute sessions.

My Background

Learning to love yourself can seem impossible, especially when we have carried the idea that we are not lovable for such a long time. Whether living single, in a relationship or within a family, having a solid foundation of knowing you are worthy, you matter and have purpose is essential to living an intentional and fulfilling life. When we lose our way, feel broken beyond repair, or feel it impossible to even breathe, we sometimes need someone to help us navigate through the rubble, someone to shine the light and help us reclaim our right to be free from the darkness. I have been in the rubble and in the dark, heavy wilderness and, I have been guided and broken out of the chains that once held me down. With over 25 years in the helping profession, and over 30 years as a consumer, I have developed a natural ability to engage people quickly and take them from confusion and broken to clarity, freedom and wholeness.
