As a minister, I have developed a way of being with others in healing relationship that I call Sacred Listening. The person sharing in the session brings whatever they want to work on, including positive things like life direction, gifts and meaning, or difficulties like anxiety, depression, ambivalence or relationship issues. The person listening provides a safe container for the work, and may suggest exercises to expand and deepen an ability to hear thoughts, emotions, body sensations, stories, intuition, and images that show up in our dreams or during the day. All that we need to know about ourselves is waiting to be discovered.

You might be considering therapy to address a specific problem that is affecting you or your family in a negative or confusing way; maybe you want to understand more about the way you react to things, or talk about difficult or painful experiences. I understand it can be hard to reach out and I welcome any questions you have. I believe you are the expert of your own life, and I truly appreciate hearing the rich knowledge people have about themselves. I also enjoy exploring the effects of social and cultural influences, power, resources, and relationships on our shared human experience.

OCD is exhausting, depressing, hinders productivity and prevents you from enjoying life to the full. You've probably felt shame, or maybe you've hidden the special tricks that have helped with decreasing your OCD anxiety. You feel stuck and it's hard to be confident in your decisions. It would be nice to have one moment of relief, where your thoughts don't feel like they're spinning out of control. You're desperate to have clarity around everything you've been feeling for so long, especially your concerns about contamination, sexual orientation, religion, violence, pedophilia, health or harm.

Has it been a while since you’ve felt like yourself? Lost touch with that spark inside? Honestly, it happens to all of us. Life is tough. When feeling overwhelmed, hopeless, anxious, depressed, or lost, one of the most powerful things we can do is giving therapy and counseling a try. I frequently support clients through life transitions, when things just seem out of sorts, as well as painful moments, when things are just unbearable—helping them find the security and courage needed to make lasting changes. With an open ear and accepting heart, I’ll walk alongside you as we invite those changes to happen.

I am not what you probably think of when you imagine a therapist. I will be in jeans and probably a casual shirt. I'm not going to jot a bunch of notes while we talk, or ask you to lay on the couch. I'm probably going to try to make you laugh at least once. We're going to get some work done in session, but it's not going to be as formal or awkward as you might expect from how working with a shrink is usually portrayed in movies and TV. (In addition to in-person sessions I offer remote counseling via video chat.)

As we evolve and confront challenges, it is crucial to recognize our past, adapt to our present surroundings, and modify our perceptions and behavior so we may reach our full potential. My aim is to assist clients in exploring emotions, promoting self-reflection, developing positive methods of communication, and enhancing the foundations that will support life-long relationships and improve the overall quality of life.

My practice focuses on psychotherapy, neuropsychological assessment, and educational advocacy. Due to COVID, I am offering tele-assessment for those in high risk groups or w/ family members who are. Issues include: learning problems, employment challenges, relationship struggles, life transitions, developmental disorders, medical illnesses, and stress of being a member of a diverse group (LGBT, ethnic minorities, etc.). I see children/adults who may be unconventional, anxious, depressed or do not fit comfortably within their environment. The label “disability” may be applied to them, but “differently abled” is more accurate.

Life can be difficult, even overwhelming at times, but do you often have trouble coping? We all face challenges but maybe there's something making life tougher for you. Do you regularly have feelings of sadness, guilt, hopelessness, fear, or panic, yet don't know why? Do you suffer from sleep problems, low energy or appetite, stomach pain, or upper body tension that you can't explain? Do you have intrusive or racing thoughts that are impossible to control? These are some of the ways that anxiety and depression can affect a person. Daily stress and unresolved trauma can worsen the condition to the point that life becomes unbearable.

In this big world that we live in, we often find ourselves surrounded by people, but walking entirely alone. They don’t understand us and when we stop to think about it, we realize that we don’t really understand ourselves. The pain, fear, and other struggles become who you think you are, losing the true sense of the person you were meant to be. You’ve tried changing your personality or appearance to find the love and acceptance you crave, but it’s only left you feeling empty. Life keeps passing by, time keeps ticking and the pain becomes too much to handle and the feeling of being “stuck” has settled in.
