I often think of my role as one who guides clients through their experience of being 'lost in the woods' of their psychological space. Symptoms of being lost in this way are various sorts of anxiety, depression, a sense of meaninglessness, and a feeling of paralysis or just simply being stuck. I help clients minimize their needless suffering, interpret the valuable information the symptoms are presenting, with the ultimate goal of helping them reorient themselves to a more valued, purposeful experience in the world.

I believe that childhood interactions play a huge part in the development of psychological pain, wounds, and hurts. I am sensitive to the process of therapy and work hard to make it a safe and trusting space for you and myself to work together. The here and now interactions in the room are important and I intentionally use them to foster the healing process. Your strengths and goals are important to the way I work because my aim is to free up the energy that has been suppressed by pain so that you can focus on the things that are important to you.

Most of us are fortunate to have "enough" in our lives, but often feel that there should be "more". More joy, more connection, more purpose, more fulfillment, more peace. Therapy is a process that helps us find that "more" and transition from a life where we survive, to one where we thrive. Therapy provides an opportunity to explore and utilize various paths to personal growth and healing. As a result, clients often report positive outcomes including: better understanding of self, improved communication, healthier connections to others, improved emotional regulation, and stress/symptom reduction.
