The pathway of life can be a difficult one. Sometimes it can become dark and frightening. At these times, it is often helpful to have a companion; someone to encourage, guide and provide an accepting presence. This is what I strive to provide.
My work focuses on individuals recovering from abuse and trauma. I also work with individuals dealing with sexual addiction and their partners. My clinical work is a blend of psychodynamic and cognitive-behavioral interventions which provide clients with insight into their difficulties, and ways to ease their symptoms.
During difficult circumstances, spirituality can provide a foundation for healing, and it can also be a source of confusion and pain. My training as a pastoral counselor has equipped me to address spiritual concerns and integrate them into the healing process at the client's request.
