My primary goal as a therapist is to provide a safe place for my clients to explore the factors and forces at work in their lives and exert some control over those forces. Only when we participate consciously in the changes within ourselves and the world around us, can we give direction to and exert influence on them. Everyone has a different starting point and desired outcome in therapy, so we will always begin by identifying your individual needs and goals while forming our therapeutic alliance. It is my sincere desire to help people advance past whatever may be hindering their development and peace.
I have worked with adolescents and their families within a school setting for over 20 years. During this time, I have collaborated with many people with a variety of mental health disorders, situational challenges, and histories of trauma which affect their ability to function and thrive. Let's work together to help you move forward.
Because I am also a full-time teacher, I take appointments Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 4:00 to 6:30. During the summer, I see people on Mondays only. "I am a person through other people. My humanity is tied to yours." - Zulu Proverb
