"If the only tool you have in life is a hammer, everything looks like a nail!" Therapy is not for "weak" and "sick" people, but can be an excellent way to fill your "tool box," with skills to improve relationships, communicate more effectively, manage stress, emotions, and challenging life transitions. Therapy provides a safe, supportive, non-judgmental space in which you can develop skills, insights, and inspirations, leaving you to feel more empowered in many areas of your life. My training comes from 15+ years of experience in hospitals, treatment programs, correctional facilities, and private practice.

I see therapy as a powerful process because of the collaborative relationship between the therapist and the client. When a person chooses to begin the therapeutic process, they enter into a safe space in which they can begin to free themselves from that which has become constricted or blocked in their life. In this process, I offer companionship, interest, support, and alliance. Your life narrative becomes our focus, with sustained curiosity, attention and empathy. As a client, you then can become more curious, attentive, and empathic towards yourself.
