Using a depth-psychodynamic approach, I work primarily with individuals who seek a deeper understanding of their inner and outer worlds, and I am particularly fond of working with those in/around their Saturn Return—the quarterlifers (early 20s to mid 30s). Sessions may consist of: exploring your childhood patterns, relationships and attachment styles; analyzing dreams; inner child and shadow work; strengthening trust in your inner knowing; coaching around manifesting your life goals; somatic and mindfulness exercises; and compassionate confrontation around where you are stuck in your growth or blocking the progress of your healing.

I believe that all human beings have a remarkable ability to grow and change. Some clients come to me with a great deal of depression or hopelessness about their lives without the insight as to how they can be helped. I use a strengths-based approach as I listen to their stories to find the hope, possibilities, and resiliencies that coexist alongside suffering and insecurities. All therapies are evidenced-based and trauma informed.
