It is common to see therapy as a journey to discover the Self. We have familiar maps, or patterns, which can lead to unhappiness or self-sabotaging behavior. You may find yourself stranded in all-too-familiar territory with little idea of how to move on. Like many journeys, it can be an exciting adventure but can also be full of unknowns. I see my role as your guide, to blaze new “routes” together that have worked well for others. As Helen Keller once said: “What I am looking for is not out there, it is in me.” I truly believe the exquisite joy you find by falling in love with yourself is a journey you don’t want to miss! Known as a “warm fuzzy straight shooter,” I refuse to replicate a version of a critical, controlling parent of the past. I endeavor to create a safe, nurturing environment where you can be the YOU of your understanding. I love assisting women and men face self-defeating life choices so you can stop wondering, “Why does this keep happening over and over?” If desired, I offer personality assessments so you can quickly understand your patterns and we can work together to lessen limitations and capitalize on strengths. With close to 30 years in social work and counseling, I enjoy both of us having dynamic roles, playing off each other. I enthusiastically embrace the opportunity to join you in your journey!
