Great to meet you!

I am a compassionate and caring counselor who operates from a humanistic perspective; that is—the desire to see everyone reach their full potential. I do not see you as a diagnosis; but as a person. Trauma-informed and crisis-experienced, I have worked with people dealing with the challenges of poverty, deprivation, loneliness, physical illness, low self-esteem, psychological, physical and sexual assault, abandonment, neglect, child abuse, and substance abuse.

A bit about my approach to therapy

I use a collaborative and holistic approach. I recognize you as a partner in the process, and as an expert on what limits, troubles and besets you. I help you experience healing through the practice of mindfulness and unconditional positive regard.

What you can expect from our first session

I serve as a guide to help you gain insight into obstacles to your happiness. I help you define what you feel; to assess and access your strengths. I encourage you on that path. I am your co-worker in the process. Client and therapist, we plan together to create strategies for more productive and serene living; in the immediate and the future.
