My Approach

I collaborate with you while ensuring that your desire to move forward is balanced with a gentleness and self-compassion. A teacher once stated that "real is better than perfect." Self-reflection, awareness, and willingness to explore new pathways happen best within a compassionate space. I provide a safe space in which individuals, couples, and families can choose to express their sentiments and needs. As you reflect on actions and consequences with kindness toward yourself, you are better able to access your inner wisdom and discover possibilities. You will find me to be authentic and an attentive listener with thoughtful questions meant to invite reflection and curiosity. Questions and answers are primarily pathways to self-discovery. I offer a process/support group for counselors/therapists. While the group serves as space for peer consultation, it is primarily a place where therapists can attend to their own well-being. See my website for flyer and additional information.

My Background

Many people I have helped to navigate through rough patches have helped shape me. Adolescents reinforced the importance of authenticity. Families confronting addiction showed how compassion toward self as well as others is essential to moving forward. People with chronic mental illness showed how they flourish when feeling safe and respected. Work and participation with groups forms the basis of my interactive, conversational style. Groups also revealed how magic takes place when people who care about each other converse about what matters. Perhaps you have unfinished business with someone who is unavailable for various reasons. The process of moving on can begin without the participation of the person(s) in question. Our first meeting is extended 30 minutes without additional cost. You will experience me interacting with you at a relaxed pace. If you find me to be a good fit, let’s work together and try to open up some space for you to move forward in a way that feels right for you.
