“Agency means the strength that comes from the inner awareness that one can achieve self-chosen, worthwhile goals and make some difference in life that matters to oneself and others.” ~Howard John Clinebell
Topics I Address
I work with a number of counseling topics, however specialize in coping with everyday life, career and relationship issues in a healthier way. My experience and training in several psychotherapeutic modalities, including the Mindfulness Based Cognitive and Psychodynamic approaches, allows me to work with a wide variety of counseling topics, with a particular focus on issues of depression, anxiety, grief and loss, stress management, post traumatic stress disorder, addictions, parenting, family and couples counseling.
My Thoughts about the Therapeutic Process
I believe that each human person has an innate wholeness and the resilience to heal. This is why my approach is client-centered, relational and holistic, encompassing body, mind and spirit. By meeting you where you are in your life, with compassionate psychotherapeutic care and deep listening, we work together on your goals and assist you in experiencing improved feelings of well-being and deeper meaning in life.
My Professional Experience
My background includes inpatient and outpatient psychotherapy with individuals, couples, families and groups. I also have experience as a primary addictions counselor, family therapist, and as a hospital and hospice chaplain. I have worked with persons from many different ethnic, cultural and religious traditions in a variety of clinical settings, deepening my specialty in the integration of counseling psychology and spirituality.
