Hello! I'm John (they/them), and I look forward to meeting you. I believe that every human being is able to live a life of joy and connection. We all encounter obstacles to this along the way— in our families and relationships, in our physical health, and in our lived experiences with the larger social and ecological systems around us. The heart of my work is in supporting each person to explore these experiences and use them to develop their own authentic, courageous relationships with self, others, and the wider world.

Waitlist for new clients
(NOTE: As of 12-01-2021, I am unable to schedule new clients except for couples therapy. Please contact me if you would like to be placed on my wait list) We live in catastrophic times. Many of us feel unsafe or melancholy even with partners and friends. Intimate partnerships are difficult to find, and harder to maintain. Even before COVID, some of us were outsiders in our own families or communities, and now we are even more isolated, cut off from normal forms of intimacy. The world has infinite color and possibility, but it often seems totally out of reach. Most of us are just surviving, and can hardly imagine thriving.

Due to my own lived experiences, I strive to create an affirming space for those who are fat, queer, polyamorous/non-monogamous, in/visibly disabled, gender-expansive, and/or expectant parents. Together, we will 1) gain a deeper understanding of your relationships to Self and others, 2) deconstruct systems & expand your knowledge of your own privileged & marginalized positions, and 3) learn about your attachment style while healing attachment wounds. Additionally, creatives who wish to expand our process beyond discussion and into music, poetry, and other expressive arts will find that those mediums can be interwoven into our work.

Not Currently accepting new clients. It's okay to not be okay. We are living in a very strange time and we are all just doing the best we can. You might feel paralyzed because it seems like everyone else has it more together than you do. You are having to balance more, take on roles you don't want. You feel overwhelmed and uncertain and it feels like you cannot get a break. In this new world of staying at home and physical distancing, finding creative ways to maintain meaningful connection is critical.

As a transpersonal, body and gestalt psychotherapist, EMDR and Comprehensive Energy Psychology practitioner, meditation teacher and hypnotherapist, I offer an embodied and integrated approach to therapy, coaching, consultation, and teaching. Our problems and difficulties are opportunities for growth and wisdom, our innate intelligence always knows exactly what we need to transform or heal. Often, we need to undergo a process of compassionately encountering what it is that we find unacceptable, terrifying, or seemingly impossible for us to bear or let go. Paradoxically, these are the things that can lead us into deeper relationship with our true self.

I specialize in working with women who eat their feelings. I have developed the STOP Eating Your Feelings approach, which differentiates four different patterns of emotional overeating. Distinguishing these four types helps compulsive eaters to identify the reasons why they binge and to target the particular patterns they need to change in order to move beyond compulsive overeating. I also work with clients with anxiety, depression, workplace stress, those healing from grief or trauma or trying to sort out the effects of growing up in a dysfunctional family.

Even in the midst of personal, financial and professional success, you might still find you are struggling emotionally, interiorly questioning, wondering whether all the energy and time you have put into your life is really paying off. Often, you may not know what exactly is troubling you and yet feel quite certain that something is not quite right inside. When it feels this way, therapy can help.
