Profile
“Important progress occurs when a client realizes that hardship and suffering do not necessarily have to define their life in a purely negative sense.”
What was your path to becoming a Licensed Professional Counselor?
I was a jazz guitarist during my 20s. As an undergrad, I double-majored in English and psychology and initially wanted to be a film screenwriter before my interest shifted to psychology. I was fortunate to be mentored by Dr. George Atwood during the mid-to-late 80s, which was a life-changing experience. I was content for many years working in crisis but eventually decided that I wanted to pursue a license and start a private practice.
What should someone know about working with you?
Important progress occurs when a client realizes that hardship and suffering do not necessarily have to define their life in a purely negative sense.
How do your own core values shape your approach to care?
I think core values are extremely important to self-development; discovering what matters most in life — what one cares about and values — is what puts us in touch with the deeper, authentic self. When this takes place, clients often begin to feel more whole, more integrated, and better able to tolerate suffering.
