Some clients need only a few sessions to make changes, and others need longer. As your therapist, I will work with you to establish goals that are specific to your needs, not a "cookie cutter" approach. I will provide an atmosphere of support and nurture as we address your needs. I have a deep appreciation and respect for my clients’ stories. My style as a therapist is characterized as respectfully curious, collaborating with clients to help transform problem-dominated stories into hopeful ones. I value my clients’ experience and encourage them to pursue creative approaches to working through their situations.
I have a collaborative approach to therapy, and value feminist perspectives. This approach helps clients find their voice, giving them a sense of their own power. Both men and women benefit from this perspective because it helps clients see life from a new perspective that voices creative, life-affirming stories.
The most important aspect to my work is that my clients feel they have my respect and my sincere interest in their lives. I believe these two components create an environment for healing and wholeness. Feel free to email me directly at or call 281-960-3991.
