"Our life experiences affect how we view the world and our confidence in navigating through it. Therapy provides an opportunity to examine how these life experiences strengthen and challenge us. Experiencing a traumatic event can cause the world to feel like a dangerous place and result in feeling incompetent in handling daily life tasks. Addressing trauma in therapy can decrease fear and increase confidence in regaining control of your life."

"Creative, practical treatment that promotes resilience and helps you build the life you imagine. I don't believe in lingering too much in the past to help you with the present or future. The past informs our work, but is not the general focus of it. I am intensively trained in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and use the skills-based model as the foundation of our work, combined with a warm, personal approach derived from a lifetime in the creative arts. When you feel you no longer need to see me, and you trust the coping skills and perspective you have developed, my work is complete, and that is my goal. "

"Therapy allows us to uncover the inner tools and wisdom that help us to get out of our own way. I am often amazed at therapy's ability help us get "unstuck" from the patterns that keep us from experiencing the fullness of life. Whether you struggle with depression, anxiety, grief, trauma, relationships, matters of sexual or gender identity, or some other life transition, together we will uncover the ways in which your unique inner life informs your experience of the world around you."

"Having the tools we need to navigate our way through life's challenges is often the key to greater happiness and fulfillment. I believe that human beings start from a place of health and resilience. When we have difficult or traumatic experiences, we can often be sidetracked by self-doubt, anxiety, depression and more. This can make life and relationships feel overwhelming, confusing and at times unmanageable. Therapy provides a safe space to explore and understand ourselves better while also developing the tools we need to move forward. Through this process, we can begin to heal from the past while creating a more intentional future."
