Our highest potential as human beings is to embrace the interdependence of all beings and to value full development of potentialities and consciousness. This involves an ongoing process of healing the wounds in our psyches, fully inhabiting our bodies, and increasing our consciousness while developing a healthy relationship with those parts of us that are unconscious, and deepening our relationships with other humans as well as with all the other inhabitants of the planet we share. Each of us has our own individual potential to grow towards, and our work together can support you in this process.

My passion is to support couples into a more loving and fulfilled relationship. I believe that many couples fall in love and sacrificially give, but unbeknownst to them, lose their way, and take the common path of exhausting themselves by tying to change their partners behaviors; which will never, ever, work! Working with me however, will shift the focus from their partner and place it on themselves. Then, with my guidance, the couples make a strategic plan(s) to do the next right thing(s) in the relationship. Only then will healing begin, and the experience of living in a more loving, trusting, and safe romantic relationship.

Relationship stress, conflict, and anxiety can rob the joy of dating and being in love. The pain of not fully connecting, cheating, and addiction issues with a loved one can feel unstabilizing.

I believe therapy is the development of a safe and trusting relationship between the facilitator and the participant. Therapy can be hard work and getting started can be scary, however making art, using play or being in nature can ease this process. As your therapist I will encourage you to use your creative imagination as a vehicle to understanding your inner turmoil, psychic pain or stagnancy. Along the way we will be implementing these effective tools in cultivating a more fulfilling life experience.

We learn how to regard ourselves from the earliest relationships we have. From the nurturing of our nature or lack thereof, a template of how to treat ourselves and relate to others is set. The good news... this template is not set in permanence and is subject to change with focused intent! I am dedicated to helping you achieve these changes. Therapy is an art form which involves attending to a Client's specific emotional pains. The art of my practice is in knowing when to provide silence or words, when to challenge or encourage, when to include techniques, when to just be.
