I believe an authentic appreciation of the “whole” person is vital to the therapeutic healing process. Therapy can be a way to explore the unique aspects of our entire selves including our thoughts, feelings, behaviors, the mind/brain-body connection, and the unique values and core beliefs that guide each of our lives. In my practice, I help those who are looking for a means of developing new ways to cope, and grow. I seek to provide a safe space to help you learn how to talk about and explore current patterns in your life that are no longer serving you, and find ways to unearth meaning, and build a life worth living.

For a long time I thought about what it would be like to feel differently, to understand why I am the way I am, to be able to change. Regular personal psychotherapy transformed my life. I became aware of how my family influenced how I felt and what I believed about myself. I understood the role I played within my family and how I unconsciously acted to get my needs met. As I processed through hard, traumatic events in my life, I saw how I had previously coped with the pain in the best way I knew how. The journey to healing is not easy, but I have also experienced transformational self-acceptance.
