Orientation & Approach

I believe what I can offer clients is insight, encouragement, honest direct feedback, kindness, support, new skills, and customer service. My orientation is organic to the counseling session, shaped by individual client needs, the therapeutic relationship we establish, and existential, narrative, and cognitive behavioral approaches to counseling. To me, therapy is a collaborative process between my clients and myself. Periodically, I encourage a client to speak up about any changes they would like to make concerning therapy: how often we meet, whether the client would like to continue or not, and how I might serve them better.  In my experience with people, I have come to recognize the exquisite uniqueness of each individual and their life circumstances. I invite my clients’ wholeness into our sessions—their strengths, talents, humor, interests, and preferences as well as areas they see as problematic or in need of change.

Personal Comments

I have great respect for those who are willing to put the time, effort, and emotional work into making their lives more satisfying.  I believe that counseling can contribute to this endeavor because it offers a regular time for self examination, feedback, exploration of options, and skill building. I have dedicated my life to being of service and a positive change agent to others. What this means is that I do my own inner and outer work, both professionally and personally, hoping this work will be reflected in the sessions I provide to others as well as in my own life.

I welcome clients who choose to work in the context of spiritual beliefs and practices and have specific knowledge of Eastern Spiritual Traditions, Christianity, Meditation, and the Practice of Yoga. However, I support the right of individuals to choose beliefs (or not) in matters of spirituality.
