Description of Counselor/Practice
This 'being human' is a messy business. If you feel out-of-place or uneasy within your own body, your family, community, or even planet, I welcome you. If you are suffering as a result of choices made by others or circumstances beyond your control, if you experience intense emotions, find yourself avoiding important events or decisions, or repeating behaviors knowing full well they will not further your goals, you do not have to go it alone. The mess of the full human experience sometimes requires more than one mind to understand it, more than one heart to bear it, more than one imagination to reinvent it. * * *
I offer an emotional space that relies on structure and allows for spontaneity. My approach draws on evidence-based therapy modalities that allow us to explore and experience all the complexity of being human on Planet Earth. I work with teens, parents of teens, and adults, individuals, couples, and families. * * *
Change involves loss, even as it includes gain. Connection to practical support can mean the difference between continuing down familiar, well-worn paths and tolerating the discomfort necessary to reach greater ease, acceptance, functioning, and joy. Therapy is not magic, yet the results produced can feel magical.
