You often feel like you're shouting into the wind, and no one is listening. What does it take to have your inner voice be heard and respected? It helps to get out of the echo chamber of our own heads and find someone to bounce ideas off of. This first step is truly the hardest, but it pays off quickly! Reaching out for help can be scary, and procrastination so easy to justify - but taking that first step, and resolving to change your life, starts paying off right away. When you're clear about what you're thinking and feeling - and why - it's much easier to know what to do next. Therapy can help you do that, and you won't feel alone.

Navigating life’s difficulties can be challenging, especially during this time of physical and emotional isolation. I honor all as unique individuals and value your life experiences. Prior to counseling, my background was in music where I maintained a professional position in the arts for over 20 years. I can relate to the many challenges artists face on a deeper level and I understand the pain and frustration that comes with being creative and sensitive. I value the importance of cultivating a strong therapeutic relationship so we can collaborate in finding the tools within yourself to move towards positive growth and change.

Soemetimes clients don't really know what they want or why. They know they are not happy with the route their lives are taking. They may be aware they are anxious or depressed. It may be related to school, work, relationships, family. Other times it may be quite specific. Grief over the death of a person central to their life. This can also be true when people divorce.

The demands of modern life increasingly necessitate managing multiple roles and stressors, while also offering numerous ways to distract and numb ourselves through technology and other outlets. It is easy to become disconnected from our relationships and ourselves, and lose sight of our values and goals. I believe that psychotherapy provides a unique opportunity to slow down, examine emotional and behavioral patterns that may be ineffective, and make more conscious choices about how to live. My role as a therapist is to help you define your goals and facilitate a supportive and collaborative partnership that empowers you to achieve them.

I am unique because I integrate traditional approaches to therapy with the spiritual, non-conventional healing methods I feel so drawn to personally. My approach is spiritual and energy based, using metaphors and visualizations/mindfulness in my work. I pay attention to intentions, emotions, and intuition as guides for treatment. My clients are anxious and unfulfilled in life to some degree, and they yearn to feel joy, connection, and peace. They learn through working with me that they are strong, capable, and lovable, and can choose the life path that is right for them without approval from others. Let's change things together!
