I believe that each person has a unique purpose. Life presents with situations where depression, addiction, anxiety, eating too much, eating too little, low self-esteem, and no self-identity can distract a person from finding this unique purpose. I like to explore a variety of issues that keep you from experiencing your purpose in life and help you find your meaning and make sense of that meaning.

I welcome anyone who is looking to enhance and make meaning of their life. Unhealed wounds of abandonment, abuse, betrayal, loss and neglect lead to feelings of shame and fear, which keep you from having the relationships, resources and overall life experience that you want. I have expertise in identifying these core sources of pain, healing those wounds, understanding how they currently impact your life and, of course, changing those life patterns so you can experience something new!

Do you ever ask yourself, "Why do I keep doing the same things but expect different outcomes?" Or "Do I look at the world differently than all my family and friends?" Life can feel stressful, overwhelming, and out of control at times. I try to help life feel a little bit more manageable and work through issues at your own pace. Psychotherapy is about an exploration of self and the world around you. As a psychotherapist, I am here to provide guidance through this exploration in a safe place and to improve interaction with those you love.

Marriage and relationships are challenging and it is even harder to ask for what you want. Often people believe they are broken or their desires are shameful and I work to create change and facilitate communication. As a licensed psychotherapist, specializing in sex therapy, I work to help individuals, partners, and couples to connect. It is my passion to heal shame, have the hard talks, and facilitate communication. Personally, I know the challenges of maintaining the passion in a long term relationship and I don't believe it is normal to give up on intimacy.

If I were to pick one theme that runs through my therapy work, it would have to be Empowerment. I believe completely in people's abilities to change their own lives. In whatever age, gender, sexuality, ethnicity, or culture we feel we belong to; we have the power to decide how to respond, perceive, define, believe, and present ourselves to others. I feel my role as a therapist is to ask questions, be curious and draw out the power of each person's own spiritual, emotional, and relational authority over their own lives.

I warmly welcome you as you are, and hold a safe space to support your intention for growth as your guide, witness, and companion. I enjoy working with clients who want more than traditional “talk” therapy. I offer experiential therapy, so you can go beyond cognitive understanding to having a transformative experience. I have an active style that is more than simply listening. I would describe the way I work as collaborative, curious, and challenging when it needs to be. I identify as a highly sensitive person (HSP) of gifted intelligence, both of which inform my work. My approach is mindfulness-based and somatic.
