About me

ABOUT ME

As a seasoned therapist with over 20 years of experience,  I am proactive and straightforward.  The last thing you need is a therapist who fails to challenge or guide you.  I begin by creating a therapeutic connection, which can only be achieved if you feel heard and valued, free of judgment.

I have nothing invested in being right, so I will offer feedback based on patterns I observe.  If it falls flat, we move on.  We work as a team to identify the source of the problem and we work together for meaningful change.

I also find humor to be healing.  Certainly there is a time and place, but humor is therapeutic.  While I don’t use it as a clinical strategy, humor can reduce stress, improve the therapy bond, offer perspective, and increase self-acceptance.
