Many people feel disconnected and alone and more importantly feel disconnected from one's own self. They may experience anxiety, depression or the after-effects of childhood trauma. I provide professional counseling for individuals and couples. My approach to counseling is as a collaboration between therapist and client with a goal of assisting people to not only to re-discover their innate ability to heal themselves and become whole but to discover a new, in-depth sense of inner peace, calm and joy as well as greater ability to connect with their own inner wisdom.
I have been in the behavioral health field in many different capacities for over 30 years. I respect and honor diversity and am willing and able to work to work with most presenting concerns: trauma, depression, anxiety, relationships, childhood sexual abuse, grief/loss, life direction and addictions.
As a Gestalt-trained therapist I help the individual I am working with become more conscious of what they are doing, how they are doing it and how to make space for change. This collaborative, wholistic approach emphasizes present-moment awareness, a body-mind connection, self-acceptance, greater self-compassion and promotes awareness of the ways that unexamined thoughts and emotions, can impede growth.
