Why am I a therapist? There are many reasons I am in this field. The initial draw was curiosity about people. I find people fascinating, each person has their own story, their own journey, their own struggles, and their own triumphs. I find it to be a humbling experience that a person I am working with in therapy is willing to trust me with the intimate details of the things they are seeking help for. I remain cognizant of the courage it takes to seek therapy, to seek recovery, to work on making changes. The resiliency that people are capable of never ceases to amaze me.
I have been in the behavioral health field for 28 years and I'll do my best to utilize my training and experience to assist you in reaching your goals. Among the issues I have experience in addressing are depression, anxiety, recovery from trauma, marital and couples therapy, family therapy, coping skills, stress management, grief and loss, and behavior.
It is truly a moving experience to be a part of seeing the growth, the healing, the recovery, the discoveries, the insights, and the dreams that people bring to fruition in the journey we call therapy. I am a firm believer that therapy is something I do WITH a person not TO a person; it is very much a collaborative effort.
