Are you struggling to overcome your past? Do you find yourself feeling stuck and disconnected in your every day life? Do you find yourself engaging in repetitive patterns yet unsure how to change? Whether you struggle with managing your emotions or your behaviors, people have an incredible ability to rise above their challenges and achieve healing and connection with the life they want. I believe in the transformational ability of therapy to overcome past events and present obstacles both in ourselves and our life to find new strength, resolve and meaning. I believe the road to healing is illuminated through self-discovery.

When we're at our best we can take on new challenges with enthusiasm rather than fear. Bruce Lee said, "You must be shapeless, formless, like water. When you pour water in a cup, it becomes the cup. When you pour water in a bottle, it becomes the bottle. When you pour water in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Water can drip or it can crash. Be like water my friend." Counseling is one way you can improve you're ability to face challenges or "be like water..." Together we can enhance your strengths to allow you to experience the changes you want to see in your life. Now providing telehealth only HIPAA-compliant video appointments.

I understand that beginning therapy can be a challenging experience, but it can also be highly rewarding. It does require an openness to commit to change what currently is not working in your life. By entering into therapy, you are choosing to learn ways to change behaviors, thoughts, and relationship patterns that may be contributing to the distress you currently feel. Or you may be seeking ways to cope with a current stressful or negative situations. It is courageous to begin the process of counseling, and I will support and facilitate your treatment needs and goals for healthier, more fulfilling life.

Congratulations on taking the first step towards healing and inner peace. It's not easy to ask for help, but when you do it's a huge relief. Sometimes life brings intense trauma, tough relationships, and/or family who makes you feel bad about yourself. You don't need to handle this alone anymore and no human being deserves permanent suffering.

Holistic therapy goes beyond just talking about problems. We can dive deeper for greater understanding and solutions. We learn to witness and "be with" parts of us which are hurt, angry or afraid. Learning to hold self-compassion and curiousity is key. When we push pain away, it grows and wounds every part of us: physical, emotional and energetic/spiritual. I use a holistic approach which enlivens your true self to create healing and balance between these aspects. You will be pleased with the results. And, you will take with you new awareness, inner peace and effective practices which you can use for a lifetime!

Therapy is a tool to help a person become the best version of themselves. Trauma, stress, unhealthy relationships, poor coping skills, emotional dys-regulation are all factors that contribute to being unwell. Counseling allows a person to work through those barriers and improve the way that they manage stress, find healthy ways to express emotions, work through trauma that has caused you harm, build tools to have healthy, productive, relationships with others and ultimately find alternate ways to cope with distressing events within our lives. A counselor is not only a therapist, but a guide and facilitator of growth.

I am a master therapist and trainer. What interests me most is exploring how people have become distorted from their true nature and lost touch with what matters most to them. The work is to help us all clear the distortions so we can return to who we are: awake, kind, free. I am an EMDR therapist and trainer. I also use a lot of Buddhist Psychology in my work, working to understand the nature of satisfaction and dissatisfaction as well as the nature of self. I teach/coach meditation as well as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, which is about living life fully, from what we truly value rather than being caught up in our minds.
