My approach is best described as interactive, personable, nonjudgmental, and aimed at bringing about change that's both meaningful and real. I tend not to view people's issues or concerns as a form of pathology or neurosis, but rather as particular problems in living. I see each person as genuinely unique, and so avoid cookie-cutter approaches. My role is to help individuals and couples work through problems as effectively and efficiently as possible, in a way that builds confidence, self-respect, hope, and, ultimately, a fresh way of living life.

I see therapy as an opportunity for self discovery, healing and a safe space to move towards our growing edges. My approach is mindfulness based and collaborative. Together we can explore the narratives and relational patterns that may be getting in the way of our personal growth or intimacy with other. Through a somatic approach (integration of mind-heart-body), we arrive into a more empowered and embodied sense of being.

I want to assist you in examining why you feel like your life is not where you think or sense it should be. Why you have a nagging feeling that perhaps you're wasting time and not living your life in a more deep and fulfilling manner. You may think you're “not good enough,” or “if only this would have/not have happened," life would be different. The activities you do feel banal, going to work/school is dreadful, relationships and family are difficult, and the values and beliefs that once held you have lost their ground. You feel lonely, depressed, anxious, and perhaps substance use is worsening. You’re wondering about doing therapy.

Whether you have experienced a painful loss, are suffering from anxiety or depression, are feeling stifled in your relationships, or cannot seem to reach your goals, the help of an experienced professional can assist you in initiating the changes that will allow you to lead a more satisfying life. Understanding your emotional life is essential to your personal and professional well being. We use to have this top-down notion that reason was superior to emotion. However, recent research clearly shows that we think better when we know and can process our emotions.

Perhaps you want to transform your low self-esteem and FINALLY believe in yourself...You know that something has to change, but what and how?
