I believe that most people, at some point in their lives, face challenging issues such as job or family stress, relationship issues, death, or illness. My philosophy as a practitioner is to help those dealing with such issues to find support and help in facilitating change where it is needed in order to relieve some of the strain and enhance life experiences. My style is compassionate and individualized. While therapy should always be a forward progress, the pace of each person's therapy should be suited to the individual.

I provide a supportive, empathic, and hopeful environment. I encourage my clients to be open-minded and honest while approaching their sensitive personal challenges, guiding them in understanding why past efforts at addressing these challenges may have been ineffective. We (me and the client) then develop alternative goal-directed and client-centered solutions. I recognize that successful therapy requires collaborative goal setting. Your participation in setting goals allows for a more willing exploration of the thoughts, feelings, and experiences that guide both current and past choices. This engenders the type of change that is both true and sustainable. Lasting change rarely happens quickly, but is a process that often begins through gaining perspective on past choices. Such understanding often provides insight and wisdom for future choices, resulting in positive transformations

Everyone experiences change in life, and sometimes those transitions are hard to manage alone. Uncomfortable feelings are a signal that it's time for something to change. I can assist you in exploring your options and making choices to put you back on track. My goal is to help you gain confidence and feel more in control. Feelings are normal, but can seem overwhelming without an outlet. Together we can discover ways to improve your comfort with yourself and those you care about, whether you are dealing with a loss or one of the other bumps along life's road.

Hello! And welcome to my practice. I have a couple of specialities. First, I help sufferers of trauma become safely emobodied after years of disconnection and fear of feeling. Second, I help clients build nervous system regulation and secure attachment so they may feel safer and more free in the world. Third, I coach clients make room for their true 'selves' in their lives, without sacrificing family or connection, blending individuation/exploration with secure attachment. And finally, I help clients remove barriers between them and their goals so they may lead more purpose driven lives for themselves and those around them.

I believe that psychotherapy can help people create more psychological space in which to live by developing a new perspective on the difficulties they face in their lives. My goal is to help people embrace their potential to live a full and satisfying life, despite the challenges they face. I have over 25 years of experience in helping individuals with a wide variety of issues, including anxiety, depression, trauma/PTSD, substance use disorders and health-related conditions. I am sensitive to individual differences related to factors such as culture, race, gender, age, sexual orientation, religious tradition, environment, and military experience.

You want to do things "the right way," but feel unsure of yourself. Others see you as capable, but you worry they don't see the real you.
