Bio

Today you are one step closer to a new place in your life,where you feel empowered and on a positive path toward growth and well-being. You may have the dream of personal growth or relationship enhancemement. Whatever that may be, I want to join you on this journey.

As an eclectic, holistic therapist,-meaning I have many models of therapy to choose from and what determines the model is you and what best fits your personality and current need. At the root of my work ,though, I draw on the practicality of a solution-focused,systemic orientation,that is time-effective and short term in duration(8-12 sessions in most cases), and my goal is to help you uncover your true potential and lead a life and a partnership that is worth celebrating. While we can’t change difficult situations of the past, and we don’t spend valuable time and energy attempting this, we do focus on the here and now and how we can all work together to better understand and resolve challenges in your life. By applying complementary therapy approaches and techniques, we will unearth long-standing behavior patterns or negative perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life. I want to help you become the cause and context of your life so you once again feel in control of the choices that bring you empowerment and satisfaction.

My particuliar desire is to come along side those whose coupling or individual processes are interrupted by circumstances and situations in life that may be the result of a DSM 5 diagnosis, infidelity, addictions,trauma, divorce, anger, military concerns, past or present abuse, and/or learned family of origin perspectives and behaviors resistant to change.
