I have worked in the counseling field for over 20 years and have witnessed the many ways that pain can manifest in a person’s life. My work is informed by my clients as teachers, by my own journey through various kinds of pain and by the belief that we are constantly evolving both individually and collectively. I believe that the distress experienced by people is deeply connected to what has happened to them, the context of their lives and the conditions under which we all live. My intention is to bear witness to whatever pain has caused you to seek counseling and to guide a process of moving through pain and suffering into resilience and transformation. What this actually looks like is co-created and looks quite different depending on you. At the center of my practice is the self determination of each client to define what wellness and well-being looks like to them.
