My ideal client is a person who doesn't want to give up on him/her/themself and the dream of a fulfilling life. I support clients to know the truth: they deserve love and success no matter what wounds they've experienced. I help people uncover the deep wisdom and restorative potential living within them. I do this gently and safely, in the present moment, by reconnecting clients with healing, embodied emotional experience. This gets vitality and intuition moving again I support people to take responsibility (but not blame) in any life/work/relationship upset because this is what works!

Everyone is destined to experience stress, loneliness, loss, illness, pain, self-defeating choices, uncertainty, relationship or work problems. Sometimes it's hard to know when to ask for help. Seeking therapy does not mean there is something wrong with us. Many individuals are concerned about getting labeled with a mental illness because they are struggling with life issues, traumatic events or troubled families. I am less interested in finding labels, and more interested in working with you to better understand your struggles and help you develop more successful coping techniques.

Stepfamily life is challenging. You may very well be wondering how you're going to do this. It looks like it "should" be easier than it is and that you "should" be able to figure this out. Your loved one cannot understand why you struggle. But I do. I've been there and it is why I help couples dealing with stepfamily life. You are going through challenges that simply do not occur in a first family. Learning about these dynamics and working with them creates more remarriage success. I can help you find success in your stepfamily.

The foundation of my work with you rests in the belief that human connection based on insight and empathy is transformational. Often times suffering is a result of habitual patterns and behaviors based on fear, and difficult experiences. This drains our natural ability to enjoy life, and unfortunately cultivates a culture of isolation and aloneness. Our honest and trusting therapeutic relationship will transmute your aloneness so that you once again have access to your innate resiliency and wonder of life. It takes courage and vulnerability to reach out for support. Know I will be your ally.

My approach to counseling is compassion centered, trauma-informed and non-pathologizing. Working together to create a sense of safety and trust is my highest priority. Thus, when we sit together I don’t consider it my job to ‘fix you’ but rather, to be with you. It is in being with you and bringing awareness and kindness to you exactly as you are, that we can begin to create safety in our relationship together and grieve and heal past and present challenges. I aim to help you rediscover an authentic way of being in the world that strengthens your relationship with yourself and others and moves you toward what you most want in life.

You do not know what to do in life. You just know life is not what you thought it would be. Then you decide you cannot keep living like this and so it is time for a change.

My philosophy of therapy is holistic, meaning that I believe people are made up of many parts: body, soul (mind, emotions, will), and spirit. These parts must function in a balanced relationship in order for us to thrive. How we feel about ourselves and how we view the world affects the quality of our relationships. When we can balance a positive identity with our role in the world while also remaining connected to others, we feel whole. Brokenness can occur if any of these relationships are out of balance. In therapy, I help my clients assess the lack of balance so they can figure out how to get whole again.

“You either walk inside your story and own it or you stand outside your story and hustle for your worthiness," Brene Brown. Negative beliefs and narratives, often stemming from early conditioning, trap us in a habitual pattern of self-defeating thoughts, feelings and behaviors. We see ourselves and others through these lenses. We develop protective armoring to get on with living and can be highly successful in all the external measures. Yet privately we can get down on ourselves. We all need a safe, compassionate space where we can touch into core beliefs and feelings and let go of what doesn't serve to make room for what does.

Making the decision to seek assistance from a therapist is courageous and can be rewarded with a safe, warm and supportive therapy environment.

Therapy provides an opportunity to slow down amidst the rapid paces of our lives and look around to explore the ways we cope with difficulty. Ultimately, this teaches us more about who we truly are. Pain is inevitable in our lives, but it can function as a window into our truer, deeper selves. Contacting and nurturing the parts of ourselves that have been hurt, shamed, or neglected helps us to more fully embody our unique selves and find freedom from the constraints of our suffering.
