About My Clients
Change and personal growth can be painful especially in times of crisis. In your relationships, it may mean worry and confusion wondering what happened to relationships you once enjoyed. This can develop into serious problems like depression, chronic anxiety, anger, and distancing from significant others - or even feeling confused and out-of-touch with ourselves. This affects not only our relationships but also our ability to perform at work or school, and can even cause medical problems.
My Background and Approach
I work with clients in a way that fosters respect, acceptance, and genuineness. I will work with you to help you build trust, confidence, and satisfaction with yourself so that you may have trust and confidence in your relationships. For over 20 years I have helped adolescents and adults with personal, career, academic, and relational problems that resulted in feeling “stuck” with anxiety, depression, anger, isolation, or confusion about the direction of their lives. In my experience in community mental health agencies, as a supervisor and instructor at Phillips Graduate University (Chatsworth), and as a therapist for adolescents, I have seen how counseling that is focused on goals, strengths, and capabilities can move clients through periods of “stuckness” or life changes.
