I currently have a private practice in Soldotna, Alaska, located at 174 E. Redoubt Avenue. I work with adults, teens, couples, and families who are experiencing a wide range of problems including depression, anxiety, stress, relationship difficulties, medical illnesses, addiction, and life transitions. I welcome people of diverse cultural and religious identities, members of the LGBTQ community, people with disabilities, and teens and adults of all ages.
My approach to counseling emphasizes the importance of balance and meaning in life. I believe that even during our most difficult times, each of us has an internal strength that points us towards wellness. My goal as a therapist is to help you gain a deeper understanding of yourself and others, and to live a life that is full of joy and purpose.
I draw from the most widely practiced form of psychotherapy known as cognitive behavior therapy (CBT). CBT is a mind-body approach supported by a strong research base. It includes specific strategies for managing anxiety, depression, anger, and stress, along with mindfulness exercises, relaxation and visual imagery techniques, thought-change tools, and communication and conflict resolution skills. At the end of most sessions, I will help you decide on a small step that you can take in the next week to apply what you've learned in our session. I emphasize the importance of small steps because small, gradual steps are easier to integrate into one's life, and over time can result in significant change.
