About My Clients
You might be realizing you need to talk with someone - maybe you’re not handling things as well as you’d hoped. Maybe the “What Ifs” & the doubts have taken over, or you’re not feeling motivated anymore. You’re not sure how it started, but you’re tired of feeling this way. It scares you to think nothing will change. Maybe you’ve had a loss in your life, or you’re not comfortable with how often you use TV, weed, or alcohol to cope with things. You're not sure what to do to change things.
My Background and Approach
I believe you have the answers to how you want to step out of that and grow into the life you want. However, because you are in the middle of it all, it’s hard to see which way to turn and how to unearth yourself. That’s where I come in. I have tools and experience to help you navigate your thoughts and behaviors, and without judgment, help you decide what you believe is important for you. I believe that you are the expert in your own life, with experience about what will work best for you, and I am here to help you tap into that experience and expertise. My practice focuses on helping you find your next steps, and how to reconnect with those values and hopes you once had. I have a direct, straightforward approach, and my clients tell me they appreciate my warm humor.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I believe that each of us have our own strengths, and that our uniqueness and diversity is what makes our contribution to the world important. I think that most of the behaviors and patterns that get in our way were learned, and can be unlearned. I believe that you are the main character in your story, and that you get to decide how your story gets written (and sometimes re-written). I respect all spiritualities, orientations, and ways of coping with a systemically oppressive world, and I feel strongly about standing up against stigma, oppression, discrimination, and stereotypes.
