In private practice 11 years. Residential counselor at a halfway house for young adults with chronic mental health issues 10 years. Counselor at six 40-day residential psychotherapy intensives for adults. Completed Trauma, Attachment & The Bodymind training. Numerous seminars and workshops to enhance and inform my work.
I believe that therapy needs to be aligned with the needs, readiness and learning process of the individual. I set goals with clients and review them periodically so that we have a map for our work together. In an atmosphere of respect and support, I collaborate with clients to make the changes necessary for them to move on with their lives.
