Working Together to Achieve Change

When you're ready for change, I'm here to help you. Whether you're interested in solution-focused short-term therapy to solve a current problem, have suffered a trauma, or you want to change long-held thoughts and behaviors, we will uncover the method that works best for you. Not everyone fits neatly into one category or approach, and our ultimate objective is for you to feel better. 

A strong therapeutic relationship based on trust is one of the most powerful facilitators of change. Each therapy session is tailored to your specific needs. Together, we will uncover the approach that will be most effective for you.  Finally, a little humor can go a long way. Laughter can be an unexpected healing tool and it has the power to help us move forward.

I understand the courage it takes to seek counseling and I have the utmost respect for those who walk in my door and share their stories with me.
