“I respect the courage it takes to seek help with personal challenges. I collaborate with clients of all ages to develop treatment plans that build on their existing coping skills while discovering new strengths and healing abilities. The individuals and families that I work with are seeking help with mood problems, stress, loss, trauma, personal identity and relationship issues, frustrations with work and education, family and social pressures, chronic illness, and significant life changes. I consider it a moving and rewarding experience to help people in my practice to meet those life challenges, in a peaceful and private setting. I believe that creating a trusting therapeutic relationship with compassion and healthy boundaries is key to the healing process. My clients may choose talk therapy as well as creative expression (art, music, writing) and body-centered methods for tension release and relaxation.”
