Snapshot_20171009_1Welcome!  If you’re here, you probably are looking for a counselor because you’re hoping to solve problems.  Stuff happens.  People get overwhelmed. You may not be sure why.  Counseling and therapy provide tools and opportunities you can use to address your concerns and accomplish your goals.  I do  specialize, but you don’t need a particular diagnosis to see me. 

My approach.   There are many ways of using therapy–I’ll always be asking how you’re doing and if our work together is helpful to you.  You’re a full partner in the work.  Connecting with people is my passion.  I look forward to getting to know you, learning about your journey, your courage and strength (we all have those), and having the privilege of being able to help you along your way.

Also, on my blog here I’ve included information about a variety of important mental health issues.  Whether you decide to see me or not, I hope some of it may be helpful.

About my practice:

I work with adolescents 15 and older, adults and elders.

We work on whatever is relevant to you.  I have experience working with many concerns, including:
Trauma and PTSD
History of childhood abuse/neglect (or other childhood trauma)
Addiction (including behavioral addictions, such as video game addiction)
Depression or other mood disorders (bipolar, etc)
Adjustment challenges and overwhelming stress
Relationship and family issues
Therapy support for those on medication for mental health
