Since 1991 I have provided collaborative counseling to help overcome obstacles to a satisfying, fulfilled life. My approach draws from Narrative Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, EMDR, and many years of training in Ki and Aikido.
As your counselor, I help you mobilize and utilize your personal strengths, courage, core values and creativity to challenge obstacles to your growth, while accepting yourself as you are.
I will welcome you and will establish an atmosphere of acceptance, safety, and honesty. I combine respect, humor, and “courageous inquisitiveness” to support you and help you gain and sustain positive changes.
I will help you cultivate being more fully present in each daily moment, to reflect clearly and respond effectively and compassionately to whatever challenges occur in your life.
