Orientation & Approach

My job is to help people achieve their goals.  If we can do that in a brief, problem-focused or solution-focused manner to my clients' satisfaction, then we're done.  But if we need to peel away some layers to find out where the obstacles to success lay, then I will take a more developmental, psychodynamic, or family of origin approach.

I engage actively in a healing process with my clients.  I am always searching for the right questions that will help my clients think about themselves and their problems in a new way.

Personal Comments

I bring to my work the richness of my own life experience.  I graduated college with a BA in psychology in the early seventies, but then spend my 20's having great fun making and selling pottery.  In my 30's it became clear to me that I needed to be more engaged with people in my day-to-day work, so my long-term interest in psychology brought me back to graduate school.

I've experienced family life in several forms.  I'm now in a second marriage, a "blended family" where we've each gotten to know the joys and struggles of step-parenthood.  I also spent 8 years as a single parent to my daughter.

I can't imagine any other type of work that could being me the richness of interpersonal experience I've had in my counseling.  I feel privileged to be allowed to walk alongside my clients in their journeys toward emotional wellbeing.  I always try to honor the courage it takes for my clients to make changes and allow me to know their darkest sides as well as their strengths.
