Simply put, being human is hard. When we experience loneliness, depression, fear, or disconnection, our relationships to others and to our true selves can become closed off, leaving us feeling isolated and in pain. In those moments of hardship there is immense power and courage in reaching out. Therapy can be a safe haven to process past experiences that have caused harm, address relationships that are in crisis, and find a way to reconcile loss. We can also use counseling to explore your values and how your life is lining up with those values, or missing the mark.

I have been teaching seminars, workshops, and private sessions for my whole career. My unique healing modality, "The Clearing Process", is the basis for all 24 of my workshops.

I enjoy my work as a psychotherapist even more today then I did when I started over 20 years ago. There is so much power and insight that comes from a truly authentic relationship between therapist and client. You, the client, can then take what is learned in the safety of the therapeutic relationship out into the world full of Other relationships and feel equipped to navigate them in a way that is aligned with who you are. Whether it's your self as a mother, daughter, brother, or son, there is meaning to unfold in everything you do.

We all have complex stories, and often traumatic experiences in our past become so tangled up in our present day identity and rhythms that it's hard to move forward towards the people and things we care about most. The complexity of these difficult experiences can often have a negative impact on how we feel, live, and imagine our future. But therapy can offer a landing place to pause and reflect on our stories through a new and curious lens. Untangling the threads of your past and present life, and offering yourself empathy and kindness towards your future can provide a new way forward of empowerment, courage, and creativity.
