I utilize an embodied and integrated approach to support clients to heal from past wounds and improve current functioning. As a body-oriented therapist, I believe attending to posture, gesture, breath, tensions, voice, and movement can yield powerful insights and changes in how we experience ourselves and the world and facilitate the integration of body, mind and spirit toward fuller authentic living. Often, we need to encounter what we find within us to be deeply unacceptable, painful, and terrifying to be set free and transform. As a compassionate, supportive guide, I am humbled and honored to accompany my clients on this journey.

I enjoy helping people to live in wellness and wholeness. I think the therapy relationship is critical to being able to work as a team to accomplish that. I always hope to collaborate with my clients to set therapy goals and design a plan to achieve them. My focus is on providing a therapy setting in which people can learn new skills to cope with difficulties, recover from trauma, adjust to life's challenges, and improve their functioning. I approach therapy from a cognitive-behavioral perspective but use other approaches as needed to assist clients to reach their goals.

My goal as a therapist is to create an environment in which my clients can safely work though the complexities of their thoughts, feelings, and personal experience. While our modern lives are increasingly complex and daunting, we often struggle with the basic self-acceptance and interpersonal relating needed to open ourselves up to the potential both within ourselves and for satisfaction in our lives. The aim of the therapeutic process is to allow for insight and understanding through open, honest communication.

I work from the perspective that pain is a natural, inevitable part of life but that the amount we allow ourselves to suffer is within our power to control. The year 2020 has been especially difficult, leaving a lot of us..more than ever..seeking healing and connection. I enjoy helping others make positive behavioral changes and use evidence-supported approaches, tailored to each person's unique needs. I hope to create an environment of trust, care, and respect and work as a team to set therapy goals, create a plan to achieve them, and help clients develop tools to manage symptoms, overcome trauma, and improve functioning.

Many of my clients are referred for treatment of Adult Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and related symptoms, marital issues, as well as depression and anxiety. I frequently find that ADHD is an underpinning of other emotional, work and interpersonal issues, but has never been diagnosed. Clients often seek relief from "stress" without realizing the impact of ADHD on their lifestyle, choices etc., which often leads to that stress.
