My Therapy Style

Sometimes, I ask questions to help you reach your answers, and, other times, I challenge you and frequently give assignments to help you further work through what’s bothering you. Things I have heard repeatedly from clients is that they appreciate my down-to-earth, empathetic yet sometimes humorous approach. Clients consistently verbalize that they appreciate the way I listen and genuinely care about them. I’m kinda like a wise teacher, nurturer, wisecracking, and sarcastic all rolled into one. I have also been described as a motivational coach and encouraging cheerleader. Most importantly, I like to think of myself as a fellow traveler.

With over seventeen years of experience working with clients of all ages, including couples and families, I have worked with a wide variety of issues such as depression, anxiety, marital conflict, co-parenting, and divorce recovery – just to name a few.
