Perhaps you’re unhappy with your job, unsure about your career choices, or just looking for a change. We can collaborate to find what isn’t working about your current situation and explore steps towards a more rewarding career. This can range from practical work like job searching, resume building, or specific tests, to navigating the internal and interpersonal patterns that hold you back.
Nonviolent communication is a skill I teach both individually and in a group. I utilize and teach its core skills of nonjudgmental observation and taking ownership of feelings without blame in my work with clients.
I couple humanistic counseling with Reality Therapy, using our desire for connection and meaning in our lives to drive client-centered behavior change.
I use ecotherapy in various forms - in its simplest form it involves weaving in awareness of the natural world into our counseling sessions. We can also take therapy outside, into one of our city's many beautiful parks. If you'd like we can address specific issues such as climate change, environmentalism, grief over habitat destruction, and more, using a variety of ecotherapy methods.
Who am I? Where is my life headed? What does it all mean? These are questions we're sometimes able to keep out, but there are times they bubble to the surface. When that happens, let's work on figuring out what your values are, what you want from the future, and how to get there.
I use an emotion-focused, systems, and nonviolent communication approach to helping individuals and couples improve their relationships. We'll work on building compassion for ourselves and our partners, and practice reflecting what our partners might be feeling.
I use an approach that builds insight into the causes of anxiety, provides coping mechanisms for managing that anxiety, and support for the challenges involved.
Depression can take many forms - quite often we may appear happy to others but be filled with self-doubt and worthlessness. We'll work together to build connection with the world around you, find your joy, and understand how to avoid the thought-traps that led us into depression to begin with.
