I work with people to improve relationships with self and others, and to develop skills to manage life effectively. People are doing the best they can in life, and they can do better. In order to accomplish this, people need to learn skills to be more effective in handling what life brings. I work with parents to improve their skills in raising their children to be successful in life. I work with people to adjust to changes in life skillfully, and teach skills for acceptance and change. I teach mindfulness skills to be able to live in the moment effectively. My goal in therapy is to meet the client where they are, and to guide them to do what works to build a life worth living.
