Counseling

It's All About Relationships

We all go through times when life presents us with changes that cause anxiety, including stress related to grief and loss. Life’s transitions are more manageable with gentle, compassionate, and skilled support. Whether you are dealing with a recent loss or grappling with issues due to trauma, increasing your resources will help see you through the rough times. I have been working in human services for over thirty years, including some time of service in hospice.

I offer counseling for individuals, couples, or families with a trauma informed, strengths based, attachment theory  orientation. In plain English, this means I am committed to treat you in a non-judgmental manner and that I believe in you to make the changes that are right for you. Research shows that it is the relationship between the therapist and client that is the greatest predictor of success. As a Social Worker, it is part of my Code of Ethics to respect the inherent dignity and worth of each person, and to recognize the central importance of human relationships. I am trained in a variety of modalities that we can mutually explore to support you toward optimal growth and healing. Skilled in mindfulness training, Motivational Interviewing, and Internal Family Systems (IFS), I use eclectic skills to assist you in finding your way to greater integration. Please explore my website, then email or call me for a free phone consultation. If we both agree we are a good match, we will work together to help you move your life toward comprehensive integration and coherency.

I am currently taking private pay clients for $100 a session. I have a limited number of spots available at reduced rates, please contact me for details if you need to explore this option for my services.
