Since 1998, I have been working with individuals, couples, and families and treating issues related to: depression, anxiety, communication problems, interpersonal conflict, trauma recovery, military deployment, abortion recovery, adult children of divorced parents, pre-marital counseling, multi-cultural marriage and many other identity/spiritual crises. I see clients on the brink of divorce rediscover their passion for each other, clients merely surviving with depression/anxiety start truly living again, and clients going through the motions find purpose, meaning and fulfillment in their relationships, in their careers and in their lives. Often 10-14 sessions can lead to significant and lasting change.
The therapeutic process begins with assessment of your needs and setting practical goals and timelines for therapy. I often use the enneagram not only as a tool for self-discovery and growth but also as a way to develop insight into the make-up and world-view of those we love.
I work holistically with clients to understand and address mind, body and spirt. I help process and grieve past hurts and losses. And I help couples and families improve their connection and communication to develop strong, secure, safe, soul-satisfying attachments with one another that will withstand the test of time.
