Life presents challenges to everyone, regardless of their circumstances. You often have no control of the challenges that come your way. Your only control is your response, which creates your experience.
As a solutions-focused therapist, I collaborate with you to understand the power of your thoughts, and remind you that you have it within yourself to take back control of your emotional health. You are your own expert, and you have an inner vision of what you want to see happen in your life. I will strive to help you develop coping skills, awaken your resiliency and help you to change the long-standing negative perceptions and behavior patterns that prevent you from achieving your inner vision and enjoying your life.
Prior to beginning my private practice, I worked with various populations in the non-profit world, including assessment and case management services with military families, prevention/intervention services with elementary aged children, and assessment and treatment of survivors of physical and sexual abuse.
