PLEASE NOTE THAT MY PRACTICE IS FULL. One of the most important goals in my practice is to foster a warm and genuine empathic environment where my clients can develop a sense of trust and well-being. Overcoming anxiety, depression, PTSD and other forms of suffering can happen within a healing therapeutic relationship. As an artist, I find creative development to be most fulfilling and I am deeply attuned to the challenges of expressing one's artistic self. As an athlete, I am profoundly aware of the impact of cognitive obstacles in motivation and performance.

*NOT ACCEPTING NEW PATIENTS* I’ve found that a key to feeling vital, ironically, is learning to feel bad: learning how to feel and accept painful feelings with less judgement, fear, and struggle.  Sometimes we grip tightly to or push away a difficult emotion, person, or an idea of what should be.  When we grip tightly or push away, we feel controlled, demoralized, and rigid.  When we stop struggling with painful memories, emotions, thoughts, and people we cannot control, we find an unexpected kind of happiness; the kind of happiness that comes of feeling all the complexities of being human with compassion, freedom, and grace.

Societal and familial conditioning are common threads that run through the center of depression and anxiety. Our limiting beliefs are not often truly our own, but that of a past wounded caregiver, the voice of difficult experiences, or societal norms. As a result, we often feel out of alignment with our morals, values, needs, and desires. The more stressed we are the more those limiting beliefs get louder. When we begin to do the deeper work to deconstruct our conditioning, we can step into taking more ownership of our lives and making decisions based on how our soul thrives-- not what someone else thinks we need to do or be.

Many of the principles that guide my work as a therapist grow out of my longstanding meditation practice. I strive to bring open-mindedness, compassion, and insight to my relationship with each client, and I work to help the client develop an attitude of acceptance both of circumstances and of him/herself. While a lot of emotional pain arises out of the past events or current situations that are beyond our control, I’ve found that we frequently compound the pain by blaming ourselves for reacting the way we have, or for not being what we believe we should be.

The personality match, style of working, experience, availability and location are all aspects to consider when looking for a clinician for you or your family. When deciding to seek out psychotherapy support, people are propelled by intolerable feelings of anxiety, anger, loneliness and depression, or concerned about uncomfortable relationships with family, friends, or work, or are emerging from stressful situations, such as the loss of a job, a divorce, or life changes. Currently I am working primarily with couples who are seeking relationship help.

Other people think you’ve “got it all together” but inside it really doesn’t feel like that. You have done a good job of keeping certain parts of yourself well disguised from others, thinking “If they knew this about me they would….” You wonder what it might be like to stop living a double life. Therapy with me is a gradual process of getting to know what happened to you. It is not a quick fix because nothing about you is broken. Some areas I focus on include; relational trauma, imposter syndrome, perfectionism, and stigmatizing labels and life experiences.

It can be rather disheartening to expend considerable energy trying to change something and be left with a similar outcome. It is not easy to lead a fulfilling life while being caught in patterns outside of awareness. Psychotherapy gives the opportunity to look inward and ask how a fleeting thought, a dream, or a subtle change may be related to ongoing difficulties. Taking a closer look at something while also being curious during that exploration can open up a greater understanding and lead to meaningful changes.

Anxiety, stress and addictive patterns are simply a sign that you're human. We all have some form of them, and we need to learn to manage them, or else they can run our lives in very unhelpful ways. My interest is empowering my clients to learn practical, applicable skills to skillfully manage unwanted patterns and cultivate new ones. We often draw on mindfulness to create a more spacious, patient, and compassionate response to moods, emotions and thoughts. We also use cognitive therapy, which offers ways to actively re-program our thinking, and yoga skills to tune the body, mind and nervous system to work for you, not against you.
