The faces that we wear bear the stories that we live. A friend once said, "I am going to therapy to make peace with my face". In building this profile to invite you to my practice, I noticed how constantly facial expression changes. We change second-by-second. We mask our feelings. We hurt. Sometimes what is visible to others is different than all that we hope to hold within. Other times, a fleeting expression can tell a whole story without us ever making a sound. In the search for authenticity, both concealing and revealing become part of our lived experience. Are you searching for your authentic self? Feeling fractured? Need help?
The human spirit is strong. Despite the immensity of our various kinds of suffering, I believe everyone has the ability to move in the direction of leading a happy and fulfilling life. My philosophy is rooted in the belief that mental and emotional well-being are integral to overall health, and that therapy can be a powerful tool for achieving this balance.
I am a humanistic-oriented therapist with a psychodynamic lens. Existential, narrative, cognitive behavioral approaches / big questions, storied lives, and quality of thought processes takes focus. My work is trauma-informed. You are invited to bring whatever you are "facing" to this confidential safe place of exploration & healing. Here to listen and help.
