Effective therapy looks different for each person, whether it is having a safe space to express things you have long held inside, building insight into destructive patterns in your life, or learning specific skills to improve your mood or navigate daily stressors. My goal is to meet my clients where they are now and work together toward improving their quality of life, addressing past traumas and adverse experiences that continue to affect their life in the present, and helping them identify and take steps toward their goals. I have found therapy to be hugely healing in my own life, and I hope always to do the same for my clients.

All people are unique and special with strengths and resilience that they sometimes don't even realize they have. When struggling, no matter the challenge, building on those strengths, developing interpersonal skills and stress tolerance helps people to recognize the control they have over their thoughts, emotions and actions....ultimately their lives.

The magic of therapy is about crafting a stronger sense of who you are on the inside, while building sturdier bridges to satisfying work and relationships on the outside. Some clients work with me because of a short-term problem they want to improve. Others want time to slow down and sort out their hurts, dreams, and needs, and to make bigger decisions about how they want to live. In both cases, therapy is an opportunity to reclaim your life and grow forward. My goal is to support your courage in being continually more your own self while living effectively in the world.

The purpose of spiritual counseling is to support you in living from your deepest, most authentic self. As we continually develop, it can be difficult to remain authentic, difficult to balance our own highest values with cultural, vocational, and familial challenges. Especially in times of transition, it takes support, reflection and encouragement to remain true to who we are. While I bring my experience as an ordained Zen Buddhist to my spiritual counseling practice, ultimately my goal is to meet clients where they are, using the particularities of their strengths to help them settle more deeply into their true selves.

I believe that "a difference to be a difference, must make a difference". I have spent most of my adult life working with people to make things different. I got my PhD in Psychology from Yale University and received a diverse training - from children and adolescents to adults and veterans. Many people at times need a listener, someone to help them figure things out, someone to help them change. I try my best to be that person. Prior to my psychology training, I was a physical therapist - and I hope that my awareness of illness and handicaps adds a dimension to my work as needed

Therapy offers a chance to find peace, acceptance of self, and connection to our spiritual heart. In addition to being a LCSW, I am a reiki practitioner as well as a yoga therapist. Depending on individual needs, some therapeutic work can be accessed by focusing on the breath and simple yoga movement.
