About

Therapy can have profound benefits and can lead to lasting change, but it only works when you are ready, and feel trusting of your therapist. For my part, I seek to provide a warm, non-judgemental space for you to explore and experience whatever is most needed at the time—a supportive and curious approach that allows for rich and meaningful relational and inner-world development. If you have been feeling stuck in a cycle, overwhelmed, are experiencing grief or loss, want to make a change or cultivate your strengths, I will work collaboratively with you to enable your growth.
I am influenced by existential philosophy, mind-body unity, developmental and psychodynamic theories and transpersonal developmental theories. I see experimentation, expression, and playfulness as important catalysts. My ultimate aim is to facilitate your increasing self-awareness and regulatory capacity so that you can come into the fullness of your being.
In these times of immense stress and uncertainty, we should each be supported to find our own voice and our own way, in meaningful contact with others. If you are dealing with issues of diversity, identity, boundaries, self-esteem, self-expression, or anxiety about the future, please reach out. I would like to support you.
