About

Reality can bite, hard. I believe people can learn to bite back - and learn to be nourished. The trouble is, we can develop patterns of relating and being in the world where we remain stuck, no matter how hard we try. With a lifetime of accumulated armour and coping strategies, some having become sources of stress rather than relief, we can come to feel alienated, alone with difficulties, without a sense of hope for something better. Coming out of conditioned isolation and into fruitful contact with others and the world can be tremendously uncomfortable and profoundly liberating. Therapy is one tool to help with that process.
In therapy with me, we create a space together to be with what’s on your mind and heart. We engage in an exploration of what has been too painful, too elusive, and too uncertain to share, with our bodies as important sources of information. This will improve your ability to make value-aligned choices, make sense of the challenges you face, and feel better.
I am touched by the nuance and complexity of my clients' diverse experiences. I listen for how experience is shaped by our ideas of ourselves and our relations with dominant society. I offer a free 40-minute consultation, and my fee is set at 2% of gross monthly income. Please feel free to reach out. I look forward to meeting you and offering my service.
