Many have asked, "How can I sit around all day and
listen to people's problems?" I don't think of the human experience as
"a problem." I think of working with people as an honor. I had a sense
when I was little that I was meant to focus on working with people. I
have always been interested in gaining an understanding of why we all
do what we do. I have always studied human interactions as I have
worked on my own maturation. I believe that I am never too old to learn
and hope my clients can embrace this philosophy. I hope to share my
clinical knowledge and wisdom as I continue to work on refining the art
of being a therapist.
Life is both interesting and joyful, but occasionally
can be a painful and bewildering process. During more stressful times,
I think that a therapist can be a part of your life process by giving
you, (1.) an objective point of view, (2.) teaching you new ways to
cope with, and view yourself, or your situation, and (3.) helping you
to connect better with others.
I have created this website to provide for individuals
that either don't have access to or are not ready for therapy. The
articles and tools here are meant for informational purposes only and
are not a substitute for professional therapy.
