Accompaniment matters. Relationships transform. We sit together to access the health that is at the center of every human being, even when one of us can’t feel it. We sit because healing happens in relationship, access to true self is made easier in the presence of another person’s settled nervous system, and because your healing matters for the health of all of us. Whether you are facing overwhelm, anger, a frozen feeling, compulsions, depression, trauma, anxiety, or facing other difficult experience, we can touch it with awareness and respect. Our experience includes joy, includes pain, and includes connection and compassion.

Folks that come to me for support struggle to manage the thoughts and feelings that lead to relapse and mental health crises. My experience tells me that these folks feel disconnected from themselves and their community. Establishing connectivity to their friends, family, and their broader social setting is crucial for wellness and for healing. Everyone has the goal of contentment and peace of mind, and substance abuse more than most challenges undermines the fulfillment of these basic needs. To heal and prosper, substance abusers and trauma survivors need to practice self care in the bio psychosocial-spiritual way of life.

I provide a warm and nurturing environment where clients feel safe to explore their deepest inner selves. Whether addressing adult or parent-child issues, I emphasize the importance of working on one's own emotional and nervous systems as a first step to creating change. My intention is to help people "heal", not just "deal". I use talk therapy and experiential techniques such as Gestalt, Somatic Experiencing, and mindfulness practices. I have found that working with deep emotions embedded in the "felt sense" of one's experience is a powerful tool leading to transformation.

Good therapy helps people to develop a stronger sense of identity and self worth, a safe setting to explore self defeating behaviors and newer coping tools, a place to deepen relationships and achieve greater satisfaction in one's personal and professional lifen. I am more interested in the unique person in the room than a particular theoretical orientation. I draw from insight oriented, psychodynamic, relational frames, and incorporate CBT, DBT, mindfulness and yoga therapy techniques.

There are times in life when talk therapy can be helpful and transformative. I provide a confidential and non-judgmental space for clients seeking support and growth. My experience is that therapy works best when it is open-minded and collaborative. Anxiety, depression, grief, stress, and overwhelm are very human, but can be challenging and destructive when one feels alone or unprepared. I help clients bring curiosity, compassion, and a fresh set of eyes to their habits and patterns. Psychotherapy helps develop insight, self awareness, and new ways of responding to relationships, stuckness, and the pain points in our lives.
