My own lived experience of embracing my queer identity and navigating relationships with transitioning gender and sexual identities informs my work of supporting others through this process.
Reaching out can feel overwhelming, but feeling better is possible. And you are not alone. Through body-based talk therapy, we explore your present moment experience via your thoughts, emotions, sensations, memories, and body movement. We honor where you are moment-by-moment and give your body and mind space to feel and heal. Most importantly, you won’t have to go it alone - I’ll be with you each step of the way, helping you learn to trust your experience and feel a greater sense of your own self. I believe therapy should be accessible to all minds and bodies and welcome your access needs.

We've all seen the stereotypical therapists on TV, but that's not what you'll find with me. I am a down-to-earth person, which is reflected in my approach as a therapist. Compassion, warmth, and believe it or not, humor is what you will experience in our work together. You first must feel comfortable with your therapist for the experience to be successful.

At times like these enlisting the aid of a professional can be key, not only for short-term solutions but also for long-term wellbeing. I am dedicated to working with you to provide a safe and collaborative space to address the challenges and issues you face and work with you to find practical solutions.

As a dance/movement therapist, our sessions can be purely talk therapy, movement and talk therapy, or a mixture of movement, talk, and other creative approaches. In our sessions together, I will create a space where all aspects of you are welcome and you can speak freely about whatever is on your mind. I can help you understand how your past impacts your present. I am here to listen, understand, and help you discover new choices and new ways of being, so that you can flourish in life.

Helping clients facing grief or chronic illness is my passion. For nearly a decade, I was a hospice grief counselor providing support to individuals and families. I work with clients experiencing many kinds of losses, including death of a parent, partner, or child. The focus of my work with clients is finding meaning while coping with a life changing illness, including cancer and autoimmune disorders, or loss. I am certified in Thanatology, the study of death, dying and bereavement, through the Association of Death Education and Counseling (ADEC).

At the heart of our struggles and pains are relationships. At the heart of our hopes and dreams are relationships. Whether it is your relationship with anxiety and depression, with your career, with your partner, sister, son, daughter, boss, or parent-everything is about relationships. Therapy helps you tackle some of the most challenging questions we all face. How do we repair what needs to be fixed in our relationships, including the relationship with ourselves? What needs attention, a new perspective, a better skill, or emotional resolve to enable you to become more authentic and improve your connection to self and others?

Life is increasingly busy and complex. Compassionate Brain Life Coaching (CPLC), helps you to press the pause button, slow down and remember and or newly discover who you are. Science tells us that our brains at rest are actually programmed to be happy. But it sure doesn't always feel that way. CBLC equips you with the cognitive and mindfulness tools to counter the self-critic and manage difficult times. I will help you identify, name and validate the places you go under stress, with a view to exploring what works and creating newly, including moving from surviving to thriving.

You may be feeling lonely, frustrated, angry or depressed; or riddled with anxiety, fret, or fear. Wherever you are along your unique journey of suffering, you are welcome here. You may be grieving, weeping, or mourning. Or you may be experiencing one of the many and innumerable ways in which we human beings are vulnerable to adversity; trying to function in a complex and deeply bereft world. Alternatively, you may be experiencing great joy and pleasure and find yourself unable to transcend to your next level of potentiality. You may see the life you want, yet you find yourself idling and dreaming. You feel it's time for support.

I have been offering psychotherapy to individuals, couples and families for the past 27 years. I would particularly like to work with couples, whether it is in the very beginning of the relationship to check for compatibility, during the relationship to deal with problems that arise, or working on amicable separation. I offer conflict resolution to individual, couples and families. I am also trained in divorce mediation to work on uncontested divorce where we can create a win/win situation for both parties. All the work can be done in a few sessions and this could save you legal fees that can run into tens of thousands of dollars.

There are times when all feel we know who we would like to be, but cannot quite find a way to get there alone. I believe that we are all doing the best we can at any given moment, and that any challenges a person, family, or couple may be experiencing, can be resolved with the right support. My hope is to offer a space to explore and develop a treatment plan that will match your specific needs.

I absolutely love sitting with folks who are exhausted from the “grass is always greener” mentality. In a world where productivity is often valued above connection, creativity and authentic self-expression, you may find yourself feeling depleted and lonely with a deep yearning for something more. You may have had glimpses of something more – in nature or deep belly laughs with friends.

Creating a sense of safety and connection is the most important part of my work with anyone. When a person feels safe within the context of a healthy relationship, healing happens. Many people are walking around the world feeling very lonely and don't know why. I believe that we all have our own answers inside, but we might need help finding those answers. I empower people to "know what they know." Please visit my website to learn more about me, and find out whether we might be a good "fit."

Psychotherapy offers emotional and psychological space for change. It is an opportunity to decode what is not working and with therapeutic guidance provide clients with a scaffolding to try out new thinking and ways of feeling. I see psychotherapy as a kind of lab, where clients safely get to try new approaches out, notice what works and what is most effective. My work is about helping clients; whether a problem to be solved, a desired behavioral change, or finding meaning during a life challenging experience. I encourage individuals to contact me and explore that change. I am here to help.
