...whoever you are, no matter how lonely, the world offers itself to your imagination, calls to you like the wild geese, harsh & exciting - over & over announcing your place in the family of things.
— Mary Oliver, Wild Geese

Sometimes clients seek counseling with a specific goal in mind and more often they are struggling to name an underlying worry.  They are grappling with many challenges of developmental life tasks... 

  • graduation
  • career development
  • changes in relationship
  • adapting after a move
  • settling into a new job
  • contemplating change in substance use
  • grieving over a deep loss

These life challenges can be exciting or terrifying or more often a little bit of both.  My approach in any of these cases depends on a foundation of trust and mutual respect.  In the context of trust, sometimes I look to help clients make connections between early experiences and what's going on in their present life. I also tend to be strengths-based and believe humans possess the ability to cultivate resilience.  My style is relational in that I provide therapy as an opportunity for support, guidance and reflection as you work on goals of your choosing.  Please peruse my site and give me a call if you think we'd work well together.
