My Ideal Client

There are times when life feels overwhelming and stressful . This can lead to increased relationship conflict, feelings of isolation and loneliness. The answers are often held within ourselves and with support and guidance we can overcome these feelings. I work collaboratively using approaches that give people the tools to use throughout their lives.

My Approach to Helping

I believe in creating an emotionally safe environment where individuals and couples can process feelings, develop new insights, overcome negative thinking, improve communications and set healthier boundaries. I believe counseling is a collaborative process and work with individuals and couple in developing goals that will best fit their needs. Not one mode of therapy works for all and I often use an eclectic approach designed to address the issues and achieve the desired goals.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and have been working in the human services field for the last 25 years. During my career I have had the opportunity to work with individuals and families who have experienced a variety of life crisis’ such as; depression, anxiety , divorce, abuse, relationship and marriage issues, parenting issues and grief and loss.

Techniques I Use

Specialties

  • Couples Counseling External link

    It is important for couple to have a place where they can identify patterns that may be disruptive to the relationship. A place where positive communication can strengthen positive communication and both parties can be heard.

  • Eclectic External link

    Using an eclectic approach allows me to utilize aspects of other approaches or techniques that will better fit the needs of the individual or couple.

  • Cognitive Behavioral (CBT) External link

    CBT focuses on awareness and reframing thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. It can help identify obstacles that prevent positive feelings about ourselves and those around us. Awareness is often the key to change. It is also a collaborative approach that give individual the power to create the change they seek.

Issues I Treat

Specialties

  • Abuse External link

    Any form of abuse can have long-term implications on how individuals feel about themselves and those around leaving a feeling of isolation and depression. Sometimes all it takes is a safe place to begin to process and heal.

  • Women's Issues External link

    I have spent much of my career supporting women through many of life's challenges. Often times these challenges come in the form of abuse, trauma, divorce, grief and life transitions. This can interfere with how we perceive ourselves. It has been my experience that women often possess an inner strength that with help they can identify and grow.

  • Relationship / Marriage Issues External link

    It is important for couple to have a place where they can identify patterns that may be disruptive to the relationship. A place where positive both parties can be heard and communication can be strengthened.

  • Loss or Grief External link

    Grief and loss does not look or feel the same for everyone who experiences it. And grief and loss can be associated with not only losing a loved one but also a relationships ending, difficult life transitions, loss of employment, and many other challenges life presents. With support in developing the tools necessary, individuals can better cope with loss and still lead happier lives.
