How I Work
I respect the natural buoyancy of your psychological immune system and I will help you identify and amplify your core strengths. Like Carl Rogers, I believe that the seed of who we are already knows and yearns for the conditions that will allow us to flourish.
I walked many thousands of miles to sit across from you, attaining a Master's degree in counseling (St. Edward's University) after 30 years as a small business owner. From this and my own healing journey, I know it is never too late to reclaim the potential with which you came into this world.
I see your growing pains as calls for renewal. They are golden opportunities waiting to be redeemed for the transformation that occurs when you can speak your truth within the safety and support that I can provide.
I look to "create a new therapy" (paraphrasing Dr. Irvin Yalom) for each unique human being who walks through my door, through the offering of a deep human relationship and present awareness. In this effort, I draw from treatment approaches such as:
