""In the middle of the road of my life, I awoke in a dark wood, where the true way was wholly lost?" -Dante. Many of us arrive at this place, where we don't know who we are or how we got here -- feeling stuck in patterns we do not understand and do not know how to overcome-- sometimes struggling silently for years with insecurity, fear, depression, or anxiety. With guidance and support, the traumatic painful aspects of our lives do not have to be the places we break apart but can become the very places where we heal and become strong."

I can help address the feeling that something is just not quite right in one's life, that one is not living to ones fullest potential, and identity issues. Invariably, these problems arise as a result of loss and disillusionment, whether it be through traumas including heartbreak, the loss of a loved one, or feelings of abandonment, isolation, or not being understood.

"I am continuously modifying my approach to meet each person's needs, and although I utilize several different modalities in my work, empathy and unconditional positive regard remain the framework of my practice. In other words, there seems to be a strong healing benefit in the establishment of rapport and a strong connection within the therapeutic relationship. Utilizing the secure client/therapist relationship as a focal point for continued growth seems to be a vital component of the healing experience. Whether it be an individual setting or a group setting, my goal is to create both a healing and empowered space. "

"Welcome! Therapy should be practical. Approachable. As a relationship specialist, my collaborative focus is on the "why" of where you are. Once we understand YOU, we navigate the hurdles getting in the way, especially how they impact your interactions in life. You will not be alone in this; I will be working alongside you, and the awareness we gain will allow us to manage stress and overwhelming feelings better. This opens up space for new options; healthier, more satisfying relationships that you enjoy (including the one with yourself and your mind)! At the core of my practice is an authentic, warm and compassionate presence. "

"Nurturing, nonjudgmental understanding, respect and honesty are at the heart of the therapeutic relationship I hope to develop with you. I believe that these deepest principles are the root of healing and recovery. The therapeutic relationship is where and how this takes place.

I specifically help individuals that have been victims of narcissistic abuse in their early childhood relationships or current adult relationships heal this very real trauma to their minds and bodies. Focus is toward strengthening adaptive, rational and positive thoughts and behaviors instead of living from fear and trauma. Narcissism undermines growth, strength, health and productive ways of living. Meditation, creative visualization/affirmation skills, breathing exercises, role-playing, voice-dialogue and gestalt methods are employed for moving stagnant energy in our bodies. ."
