My Approach

My philosophy regarding counseling is based on accepting the client where they are when they enter counseling. Each individual is unique, with different needs and a different history, so each counseling experience will be unique as well. My foundation is in Humanistic-Existential Theory which includes considering the whole person, working from their strengths and helping them to achieve health and well-being by providing a supportive environment for them to express their thoughts and feelings without judgement. I believe that everyone needs to feel that they are valued, that they have some connection to others and that their lives are meaningful.

My Background

I have consulted with schools, physicians, community programs and government agencies and have provided individual, group, couples and family therapy. I have worked as a Clinical Supervisor as well as a Therapist and have helped my clients to address a variety of issues including depression, anxiety, overcoming current and past trauma, parenting, marital/relationship issues, women’s issues, family of origin issues and working with high risk youth. I have extensive experience and expertise working with youth from early childhood through adolescence as well as adults. In a position as a School-Based Counselor I not only provided therapeutic support to students but also provided consultation to school administrators and staff, served on IEP teams and ran a variety of groups including Circle of Security.
