"When individuals, couples, families or children make the difficult decision to come to therapy they are usually feeling stuck and often scared. Each of us has our own strength and wisdom which we don't see when we are troubled. My goal is for us to work together to rediscover those qualities. I use a cattail plant as a symbol of how I see therapy. Why? Cattails are found stuck in a marsh and often regarded as weeds. But when looked at carefully they are graceful and strong. Let me help you find your strength and grace."

"All emotional wounding happens in a larger context. We are all embedded in relationships, families, cultural identities community and institutional values. Therefore our pain, trauma and grief are all firmly connected in a matrix. I mainly work with those of us who are outside the margins of dominant culture and are especially vulnerable. I work from a non pathologizing stance. I believe healing occurs on many levels, in many ways. Psychotherapy is one path to emotional wellness. Do you desire a deeper relationship with yourself and others, and are willing to engage in personal inquiry in an environment of connection? "

"You feel frustrated with your anxiety and the more you try to understand it and make it go away, the larger your anxiety gets. You have regular visits from your inner critic that replays every detail of your conversation, all the ways you failed, and all the ways people will judge you for it. Your thoughts spiral out of control when someone makes a comment about you. From the outside, you’ve got it together. You’re tidy, well kept, and apologetic to a fault; it’s rare if someone doesn’t like you. But underneath, you’re depleted, exhausted, and anxious. Life feels out of balance and you’re worn out with worry and stress."

"I believe that we all have the intrinsic ability to reach our full potential; that "self-actualization is growth-motivated rather than deficiency-motivated". It is our life experiences and toxic interactions with others that often prevent us from realizing this potential on our own. Although I was trained psychodynamically, my approach is integrative and driven by the needs of the individual client. I practice in a warm, relational, and collaborative manner. I have extensive experience working with children, adolescents, individual adults and couples. I help clients identify what is holding them back from effecting positive change. I help clients be more mindful and less fearful, thereby allowing them to attain more meaningful healthy relationships."

You think of yourself as a caring person, but that's not matching up with some of the ways you find yourself behaving when you're struggling to get your needs met. You feel anxious about whether you're doing it "right".

"Are you too stressed to even be in touch with yourself? Too worried and tense, having a hard time to relax? Are you avoiding people and their expectations (and judgments) because you're tired and feel you don't have much to give at the moment? Stress feels like having a super sensitive burglar alarm ringing loudly throughout the mind and body. It confuses our thoughts. We are unable to see facts or future clearly. Our creativity is blocked or showing up as destructive energy. The body is in fight (frustration and anger) or flight (anxiety and overload) or worse - feeling frozen (numb and depressed). "
