First of all, welcome!
You have chosen to explore who you are, why you are, and what you may wish to become in the future. I welcome the opportunity to take part of that journey with you.
I work from a humanistic-existential tradition. Humanistic means that the relationship between us is a touchstone for healing, and that each individual has the capacity for growth no matter what their age.
Existential therapy deals with finitude--that to grow means we may have to give up some of our current ways of being. Existentialism also explores the paradox of freedom and responsibility and the importance of being present in the moment.
In addition, I strongly believe in the holistic nature of the individual and the interconnectedness of mind, heart, body and spirit.
I have worked with diverse adult clients from all walks of life and have learned to appreciate both our universal nature and the uniqueness of each human spirit.
What does this mean for you?
People sometimes enter counseling because they've tried all the usual solutions and find they just don't work anymore. They don't want to burden friends and family with their problems and they can't seem to find a way out themselves.
My role as a therapist is to provide a safe and quiet place, free of distractions, so that knotty issues can become untangled and clear again. I hold a sense of wonder at the resiliency and ability to change that we can all access in times of stress.
