About My Clients

I work with you as a real person, who has a positive sensitivity, intelligence, insight, skill, and caring that can help you do the work you need do to benefit in your life. I will not be trying to fit you and your life and experiences into particular theories of who you should be or how you came to be. . If relevant to the reality of your life, then I will help you find your connection to a theory. However, I accept who and what you are as a basic foundation in counseling and therapy.

My Background and Approach

We will work together to help you make sense of all of it: to learn how you came to be; to help you become more aware of yourself and your feelings, thoughts, and behavior; to consciously experience the processes of your daily living; and to help you through the sometimes painful and frightening process of growth; to move towards a more complete and fulfilling life as an individual, as a partner, as a parent, as a family member, as a friend, as a colleague, and in the community.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Personal growth, relationship health, communities of support, and social justice are compatible and cross-validating for everyone. An healthy person is better in relationships not just with intimate partners and family members, but also with friends and colleagues AND among citizens of their smaller and greater communities. Personal mastery, control, and growth are intricately related to the power and political dynamics from small to greater communities: the couple, the family, the business/school, neighbor, country/nation, and the greater global community. How to manage personal and relationship health and relationships should not come at the cost to others. Mutual benefits come from understanding, compassion, and acceptance. These often come from working through the developmental shame and abuse one may have encountered as a traditionally marginalized or oppressed community... AND from a dysfunctional family and/or community.,, and the intersectionality of multiple oppressions.
