My Approach

I believe counseling is a process where we gain insight into ourselves, our thoughts, feelings, beliefs and behaviors.  It is a place to identify problems, short term changes or life goals that you want to address. It is my responsibility to provide a safe environment to explore them. I use a combination of therapy  strategies: cognitive-behavioral, person centered and family systems to assist you.  I incorporate the inner creative spirit that can inform us in unexpected ways.  Every person and situation is different.  I respect and honor your integrated body, mind and spirit.  My job is to use the best strategies that apply to your situation. I will provide emotional support for you to explore your thoughts, actions, moods, relationships, spiritual issues, or life events that need attention.  Together we will create a personal road map to work toward solutions.
 Children often communicate symbolically through play.  Symbols can be extremely informative, displaying the problems and issues the child may be grappling with.  I interpret ideas expressed during play to help provide the child with the skills and ideas needed to address those problems.
