How Small Steps Can Lead To Big Change
In regards to taking action in 2021, I like to highlight that small steps are usually easier and have more success than leaping into big change quickly. Even though COVID has made things more challenging, we can all find something small or even tiny to move toward change.
Simple little steps could be; notice and look for 1 nice/beautiful/pleasing thing in a day, add 8 oz of water to your daily liquid intake, make your bed, smile once a day even if it feels fake, say Hello to one person, think of one positive thing that happened in the day, think about something that makes you happy once a day, etc.
There is no rush. Patience allows you to slow down and make thoughtful decisions, helps to manage our feelings, and research has found it radically increases your capacity for success. Doing something no matter how small is always better than forcing your way forward to find a quick fix.

I have an eclectic style that includes many different orientations of therapy. I particularly enjoy utilizing; Solution Focused, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Psychodynamic, Gestalt, Somatic Experiencing, Family Systems, and Attachment Therapy techniques in my practice.
The way I work is highly determined by my client’s needs and what works for them. I help clients be the best person possible and empower them to recognize their choices in life and take advantage of them. I enjoy working with adults, families, and couples, but especially love working with teens/adolescents and parents. I have had success with anxiety, stress, overwhelm, depression, family problems, relationship problems, addiction, life transitions, work and school issues, and self esteem.
I treat my clients with the utmost respect and together we foster a safe and comfortable environment. We work collaboratively to foster awareness and empower change in a gentle and respectful manner. Clients find my style to be casual and yet impactful.
