Holistic Approach to Personal Growth

I am a humanistic psychologist who works collaboratively with adult individuals and couples to promote personal growth on various levels. Barriers to personal growth can exist at personal, relational, and cultural levels. At the personal level I consider and work with clients on mind/body/spirit integration. Likewise, I help people to better understand their relational strengths and challenges in the context of the therapuetic relationship. These therapuetic relational gains can then be applied to other relationships in their lives. At the cultural level, I realize that being who one really is can be more difficult if it does not fit in with mainstream culture, which is why I specialize in couples counseling, multicultural counseling, lesbian/gay/bi issues, and life transitions.

My client-centered approach includes working closely with holistic health care practitioners to holistically treat depression, anxiety, stress, and other somatic difficulties. My background in working in clinics with naturopathic physicians, osteopathic physicians, acupuncturists, and massage therapists has taught me the usefulness of working integratively with holistic health care professionals. I believe that incorporating the wisdom of other trained professionals from various healing modalities honors the natural healing process.

I provide a supportive, non-judgmental environment where people can come to explore and move beyond what may be getting in the way of their having dynamic health.
