When life feels overwhelming or we are "stalled out" we need more than just a friendly ear. We need to know we are gaining a new perspective and self-awareness that will lead to meaningful change. I find that I am most called to work with the "black sheep" of the world. I am inspired by the resiliency of those who feel deeply misunderstood, wrongly diagnosed, broken or "damaged". I also work with parents struggling with their role, couples hoping to get on the same page, individuals grieving a loss, people struggling with a life change, and those who have been convinced by themselves or others that there is something wrong with who they are in the world. Each person or couple who works with me has truly unique needs, and so my approach will change with your needs.
I bring over 17 years of experience in a variety of settings to my work with you. My approach balances several different beliefs. I believe that emotions are not good or bad, instead they are messages that we are meant to honor. I believe that being curious about ourselves will lead to a more sustainable joy. I believe that change in perspective changes lives. There will be times when you need to simply be heard and seen in a way that we rarely are in our busy lives. There will be other times when you need to be challenged to notice and be curious about your patterns and beliefs. There will be times when I question your sense that you are not enough as you are. And there will be times when you will need direction on how to begin changing your perspective about yourself and the world around you. Together we will find the balance that is right for you.
