The Renew counseling staff brings over 80 years of experience together helping the community. Strengthen. Change. Renew.
I have interest in a variety of psychological topics, including psychology/spirituality, addictions and co-occurring disorders, anxiety and depression, relational health/functioning and human sexuality. I have utilized my services at an addiction agency, working with a variety of men and women and families dealing with family dynamics, trauma, attachment injury, and group therapy. A favorite quote of mine, “No man can walk into the same river twice, for it is not the same river and he is not the same man.” Every interaction, circumstance and moment influence our interpretation of self and other. Allow the experience of therapy to help navigate life and relationship.
I believe it is my duty to offer a space for each individual, couple, or family to explore and learn more about their human experience, to feel both solidly themselves, and at peace connecting with others. Health and wellness must come from a holistic perspective; biological, psychological, sociological, and spiritual. I utilize systems theories, existential theories, attachment-based theory and CBT/DBT approaches to set the stage, allowing the individual to guide each session. I am excited to step into this journey with you.
