About My Clients

My perfect client wants to do some self-exploration, but maybe at a gentle pace. They sometimes want homework but sometimes just need to vent in session. They may work on a specific topic but other times change the topic based on where things are with them that day. They may have a life that doesn't fit the societal norm. They may often feel like they don't "fit in" and feel more comfortable standing off to the side watching life, but they have this desire to change it. They want more.

My Background and Approach

In sessions I use a combination of a Family Systems & Cognitive Behavioral; meaning I believe that the coping tools our caregivers used, healthy or unhealthy, greatly influences us as adults. My therapy style sprinkles in some "ok, if your approach hasn't been working so well, have you thought about switching it up and trying another approach?" I've worked with individuals, couples, families, even co-workers. I've worked with many religions, ethnicities, and 'labels'. I'm not hung up on how society has labeled you or sees you; I care about whether what you're doing in your life is working for you. If you want to change up how you're approaching life or a specific issue, I'd like to help. Sometimes an outside, neutral perspective can help you see things in a way you haven't before.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I think it only fair that since I'm asking a client to share their soul with me in session, that I share some of my personal side, so... I'm best described as: Liberal, spiritual not religious, LGBTQ+ affirming, BIPOC affirming, and a staunch supporter of Active-Duty military, Veterans, and their families. (My PhD Dissertation was on spouses/partners of combat veterans, so it's a topic close to my heart!) I'm more a cat-person than dog, but have 2 Pitbull grandbabies, I love to ride motorcycles but haven't made time for it in a couple of years, along with reading for fun and watching crime shows. I struggle with my own issues and working through the scary overwhelm of conflict and family-of-origin crap. Oh, I also am not easily offended, and if you'd like to swear or drop an f-bomb in session to express yourself fully, go right ahead! And total disclaimer, if you prefer no politics or religion in session, I will respect that. This is YOUR session.
