"As each of us walks the journey of our lives sometimes we find ourselves in a dark place, lost and alone. We may be overwhelmed by the many paths before us. We may be struggling with pain weighing us down from the past, stuck in worry and fears of the future or engulfed in the pressures, conflicts and demands of the present pulling us in different directions from without, and within. It's times like these we seek a guide, someone with knowledge and insight, someone we can open up to and trust to help us find our way again, connect with our strengths and resources and find our own inner guidance.

"Are you plagued by "What if..." thoughts? Feeling fear, worry, imagining the worse? Or consumed by negativity? Such internal self-talk can be debilitating, causing stress. It drives behavior, alters mood, interferes with sleep or appetite. Feeling stuck, unheard or frustrated? Unhappiness isn't permanent. Difficult situations at work, with your health or in your personal life can be navigated. Acceptance of your reality, or health issues, makes a significant difference. Let me help you feel more at peace, learn skillful ways to respond to those thoughts, and let go of the stress. I'll happily get you on a wellness track!"

"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.

"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.
