My practice is rooted in deep listening. I believe in the infinite wisdom of each person who comes to me for support and guidance. My role is to listen carefully and provide a sounding board to connect people with what they know is true. Therapy involves resource and skill building, identifying longstanding patterns of thought and relationships, and determining what is useful now. It is being present with self, situations, and circumstances and making right decisions.
I utilize trauma informed, narrative, and cultural relational approaches to support and assist people managing relationships and life transitions as well as serious mental health issues and addictions. I focus on the integration of body-mind-spirit for whole-person recovery. Our goal is to align mental, physical, and spiritual values so that life is manageable, productive, and optimistic. I am approaching 40 years of solid clinical practice, clinical supervision and clinical education. I am and Adjunct Professor in Creative Arts Therapy and Counseling at Drexel University. In my years of practice and continuing education, what I value most is the uniqueness of each person and the trust they instill in me to join them in their journey.
