Individual Therapy

I believe that therapy should provide a space to solve problems and heal wounds. It can be a place of hope and new beginnings. Within a trusting, collaborative relationship with the therapist it can provide structure for you to build strengths, support, and resources and to discover solutions. It can also be a place to continue your growth and to learn more about yourself.

I am skilled at helping my clients to determine clear goals, but I am flexible in providing space for more open exploration when that is desired. My style is compassionate, client-centered, and interactive. I ask questions and point out patterns that I observe. My practice is informed by narrative, systemic, cognitive-behavioral, and psychodynamic thinking. What this means is that I consider you the expert about your life and I think of myself as a consultant whose job it is to explore meanings and find answers. I will help you consider how your relationships and community may support both problems and solutions. I will work with you to examine behaviors and beliefs that are more or less useful to your life.
