"My work is guided by the tenet, Life is Relationship. If we can trust our stories to a therapist, that therapeutic relationship can transform us. Self-acceptance, and calm return. I listen compassionately to others to understand what is inhibiting their motivation and self-confidence. I consider lifestyle practices, relationships, use of substances; healthy and unhealthy habits, and one's sense of belonging. My clients and I together identify what helps them change. Some practices and tools I use to guide my work are: talk therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR), mindfulness and stress management practices derived from Yogic philosophy and practices."

"Despite all that you have achieved, you get the feeling that something is missing in your life. A recent transition, relationship or career challenge may be making it clear that some things are not working. You may also notice that you end up playing a familiar role in your relationships and this creates a "stuck" feeling. At times you feel overwhelmed with worry, pressure or dread and may be resorting to addictive patterns or substances in order to cope. You don't want to feel "lacking," anxious or stressed out. You want to feel better and be better with yourself and others."

"Conflict, sadness, confusion, anger, grief, worry, shame, fear, phobias, nightmares: They can arise in our lives like scary monsters. Children, adolescents, and adults all experience these feelings as unwanted and unwelcome. What if, instead of pushing these feelings away, we listened to what they have to say to us? This might sound just too, too scary, but that's why I'm here! When an unknown part of ourselves looms like a monster in the closet, we must coax it out with patience and kindness. This is very difficult to do alone (especially for young people!) "

"Psychotherapy provides a unique space for you to explore your experience in life in a profoundly important way. In a culture that does not make space for "negative emotions", and idealizes independence, there is little room to get to know the parts of ourselves that we imagine others will not approve of. When we aren't in touch with all aspects of our humanity, effectively shutting out parts of our experience, we can find ourselves feeling confused, depressed and/or anxious, having trouble in relationships with others, not enjoying our work, having difficulty processing grief and loss, or struggling with issues related to our identity."

"My approach to therapy is relational and integrative. I believe that we all have a deep capacity for healing, but it can be difficult to fully access our inner strengths and resources without support. Together, we can uncover ways you are feeling stuck, and chip away at blockages that may have developed due to intergenerational trauma, early wounds, losses, and other challenging circumstances. Patterns that are no longer serving you can be illuminated and disrupted, creating space for more comfort, joy, and ease. Greater levels of self-awareness and self-acceptance can emerge as we explore your inner world."
