PASSIONATE, DEDICATED & DRIVEN
You work hard and play when you can. You aim to make the most of life and have a sustainable impact.
You get feedback that you're extraordinary, but you continue to strive for more, and better...:
Clarity about Your Identity/Purpose
Ability to Speak Up/Be heard
Intimacy, Health/Sense of Well-Being
Recognition/Appreciation at Work
My clients get all that.
COMPASSIONATE, STEADY & STRONG
Many of the people I work with start therapy with the intention of healing and improving their relationships to others, beginning with themselves.
I help my clients make peace with the past, and step boldly into the future they've been longing for.
I do this by asking direct and creative questions, and genuinely listening to the response.
You can say just about anything to me without feeling judged. Counter-shaming is my expertise!
I'll also watch for patterns and themes, and share what I see so you can choose what to keep, or change. Sometimes knowing what you don't want is the best step towards discovering what you do.
I’ll highlight and reflect your excitement and joy, too so you won't miss it. And I'll let you set the pace, while I guide the way.
