My Background

My father was in the Air Force and because of this, I moved quite frequently.  This experience taught me the world has many different perspectives and I quickly learned to adapt and meet people.  Our lives continue to get increasingly complicated and adapting and thriving are useful skills in the ever changing world.  A major goal as a therapist is to strive to help you understand how things like genetics, culture, religion, sexual orientation, gender expression, the era you were raised, physical health, and the environment impact how you feel and interact in the world.  I enjoy my work because it requires me to constantly learn as I work to connect, understand, and find solutions for  the people who come to me for care.

My Approach & Philosophy

Through my own therapy, life experience, training, education, common sense, and education, I learned how to live with and address my own mental illness. This background has helped me be more empathetic working with others with those issues. A central construct for me is none of us are perfect and as humans the best we can do it strive to improve ourselves. I embrace and learned to adapt to my imperfections as a human and I work with clients to help them improve when possible or accept when something can’t be changed. Some days we will do better with our emotions and choices. However, some days we might not do as well but it doesn’t mean we can’t strive to improve and do our best. 

My interests in understanding the human mind and the world of behavioral health continues to motivate me as I work to help others get healthier and stronger. I also truly understand that one size does not fit all, so I adapt what I know to develop individualized solutions when I work together with a client.

My early training focused on how to help empower people and I continue to work towards that end, helping clients move towards mastery of their situation and independence. As a therapist, I have one of the best jobs in the world as every day I get the honor and privilege of helping people grow and reach their life potential.
