“I believe that life is a journey filled with unexpected times of change, challenge, and uncertainties. These times can be difficult, and quite often individuals can feel isolated and distressed as they walk these paths of their life’s journey. It is in these troubled times that individuals can surely benefit from the unbiased listening, reflection, and professional support of an attuned therapist. Counseling can help individuals navigate through these unplanned twists and turns of life by offering new understanding of the issues or situations affecting their lives and relationships, and new ways to live more creatively. Counseling can assist the individual with identifying potential solutions or alternatives to their concerns that can enhance their sense of fulfillment in life and enable a clearer purpose and direction in their life.”
“I enjoy working with a variety of adults from diverse backgrounds, with a broad range of concerns. To my thinking, it is the nature of the individual’s concerns and goals that determines the character of the work that is needed to help my clients achieve their counseling goals. My general approach to therapy is to use a holistic model that views what are often thought of as separate issues as being potentially interrelated and interactive. Put more precisely, a careful consideration of a person’s unique physiological aspects (major physical issues), psychological dimensions (history, motivations, thoughts, emotions, behaviors), and social factors (relationships with family, work life, community) can offer insights that provide the keys to a greater sense of direction and a deeper sense of self-confidence.”
“My clients have described my counseling style as committed, collaborative and compassionate, while being direct, pragmatic and not without a keen sense of humor. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, running, water and winter sports, and gardening.”
