My Approach to Helping

A core foundation of my approach is the belief that you are the expert on yourself. I will approach you with compassion, curiosity, and some expertise of my own, but healing and growth will ultimately come from within you and the relationships in your life. Counseling in my view is about coming to understand ourselves more wholly and with less judgment in order to live our lives with greater authenticity and love. I believe that every challenge is made more manageable when faced alongside someone else. It would be my honor to stand with you as you transform whatever is weighing you down into the steps leading to a better life.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

It is my belief that human beings are both wonderfully unique and mercifully similar to one another. We are connected to each other in our individuality through the common strands of what it means to be a person trying to live our best lives in a world full of uncertainty, pain, beauty, and love. My approach to counseling reflects the uniqueness of each person’s individual life story, sociocultural context, trauma, and inner resources, while also tapping into the wisdom of our shared human condition and the immense power of relationships and community. I strive to strike a balance between the uniqueness of self and the commonality of humankind through an organic, authentic approach that draws on evidence-based practices and tools while bearing in mind that any tool or idea only really works if it works for you.

Issues I Treat


  • Relationship / Marriage Issues External link

    I have tailored my education specifically for working with couples and have a passion for helping people in love better express their feelings for one another. Chosen relationships are at the very heart of what makes life meaningful and can be a source of boundless joy. There is also tremendous stress and difficulty inherent in anything that holds such a valuable place. Conflict is normal, and can be done in a way that maintains (an even promotes!) authenticity, respect, and love.
