Do you find yourself taking care of everyone but yourself? You don't have to suffer anymore. Therapy can be a transformative and empowering experience that brings peace-of-mind and lasting change. I strive to create an atmosphere of safety and connectedness where you can share all parts of yourself and feel truly accepted. You will learn skills and identify patterns that no longer serve you.

"When we find ourselves struggling with the kind of emotional pain that our usual strategies and supports can't relieve, good therapy is a lifeline. Like massage for physical injuries, psychotherapy effectively relieves chronic emotional pain, clears out unwanted emotional scar tissue, and creates flexibility, strength and new possibilities for positive motion in our lives. Whether you are worried about your own mental health, or the distress of someone you love, or are simply curious about how therapy might help, call/email me to schedule an initial conversation to talk about what kind of treatment is best for you."

"People seek therapy for different reasons. Some are hoping for relief from a specific problem such as depression, anxiety or relationship difficulties. Others may have a general sense of not feeling as alive as they imagine they could. They would like help understanding this feeling and are seeking a richer, deeper, more fulfilling life. In psychotherapy we engage in a process of self discovery in which people learn about themselves and about the ways they have been blocked from feeling fully in touch with themselves and others in their lives."

"We are all born whole, in lovingkind perfection. But life produces obstacles that sidetrack our becoming ourselves. Obstacles take any forms: trauma in the body, inauthentic identities, existential fears, beliefs indoctrinated but in conflict with one's essential values, or anxiety that something is wrong with oneself. The result can be alienation, grief, substance use issues, depression, anxiety, difficulty connecting, or incapacity to speak or create from the heart. Reconnecting with ones body, the natural world, and with an unconditional community are the foundations re-emerging into the Self you've always been. "
