"Each client is the expert in the matter
of their own life."

Welcome, and congratulations on beginning to make changes you want
to see in your life! I truly believe you have already started the change
process, since you are most likely aware of something (or perhaps
several things!) you want to address and because you have taken the
initiative to explore options for help in your endeavor. I’ll now describe
my approach to therapy and my experience so you can get a sense of
whether I might be a good fit for you.

I believe that people make changes in their lives when they are ready and
when they have the needed support to do so. I view counseling as a
collaborative effort where I walk with clients on their journey and make
discoveries with them. Far from being the expert myself, I know that each
client is the expert in the matter of their own life. Still, I may be able to
help clients build their awareness of themselves and what is possible for
them. To this end, I use a number of methods including Mindfulness,
Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Narrative
Therapy, Seeking Safety, Solutions-Focused Therapy, and Motivational
Interviewing to help clients recognize and perhaps eventually replace
unhelpful patterns in thoughts and behaviors. I would describe my
theoretical orientation as a blend of Adlerian and Existential therapy
approaches, meaning I view change as a social process which fits into a
bigger puzzle that involves identifying and creating meaning in one’s life.

I have three decades of experience working with folks with developmental
disabilities and mental health diagnoses. For the last four and a half
years I worked in community mental health with individuals with mood
disorders and thought disorders. Like most of us, these clients also
struggled with depression, anger, anxiety, addiction, stress, grief and
loss, and trauma. It has been my privilege to work with many members of
the BIPOC and LGBTQIA+ communities in these recent years.
