MY APPROACH

When we work together, you’ll find my focus isn’t on getting you to a predetermined milestone or goal or state of recovery, but learning about you, hearing you, and seeing you, so that together we can identify ways to create meaningful change … change that leads to hope and contentment. ​Believing in the capacity for change and for people to find hope, joy, and meaning in their lives, I have witnessed people’s inherent ability to heal and grow in order to interact with the world in ways that are meaningful to them.

I am comfortable speaking about the tough and disturbing things that have happened while also teaching  you skills to function and experience a life worth living. I coach and encourage you to draw upon your knowledge of self as you utilize skills, strategies, and access resources. ​​I use a skills-based approach to assists individuals in gaining capacity and mastery. My purpose in working with clients is to ensure that they leave each session with something meaningful. It is hoped, that in time, the cumulative effect of gaining understanding, along with the mastery of skills, will lead to meaningful participation in your life.
