I'm glad you're here! My work is firmly rooted in existential humanism, meaning that the search for meaning and self-realization is central to our work together. I believe that you are the expert on you and your experience and it is my great honor to walk with you on your path. The relationship that we will collaboratively build in session will aid you on your healing journey. I am skilled at creating a non-judgmental environment and accepting you where you are, no matter where that is, as we work to shine light on what once seemed too dark to face.

We are born with seeds of promise and life potential. However, life also comes with experiences and emotional trauma that can damage, block or inhibit that potential. The results of which can take forms such as depression, anxiety, low self esteem, vulnerability to abuse and relationship issues etc.. These struggles can be debilitating, soul destroying and often isolating. I am British born and have been in private practice as an analytically trained Jungian Psychotherapist for over thirty years. The Jungian depth perspective seeks to get to the root cause of your suffering and help create a connection to inner resources.

Life can often feel painful and challenging, and relationships can be complicated. If you or your teen are in this place where additional support or guidance could be helpful, I am here to offer help and hope. I am passionate about providing a safe and non-judgmental space where understanding and discovery can thrive. My desire is to come alongside of people, collaboratively working towards growth and lasting change. One passion of mine is the journey of motherhood and the various seasons and transitions of maternal mental health - from fertility to pregnancy to postpartum.

My theoretical orientation is psychodynamic. Using the most appropriate and beneficial modality that fits with the client and their needs. I work collaboratively with a client to arrive at their personal goals in therapy. I have found life is a journey of learning how to live to the fullest with all the gifts that we possess and discovering others along the way. With all the experiences that we have in this life, a persons perspective makes a huge difference in how they experience it. My hope is to help find the perspective that helps alleviate suffering and creates a space for healing and thriving.

I would love to work with individuals who are driven by an innate need to self-actualize, and who are motivated to find meaning and happiness in life. Folks who have been through a lot, and therefore look at the world from a spiritual lens. Individuals who are interested in exploring relationships, career, spirituality, the purpose of life, and want to cultivate a practice (like meditation). They might be experiencing anxiety, depression, trauma, or personality related concerns in some or most of these aspects, and are hoping to receive clarity, care, and understanding in a safe therapeutic space.

I practice a type of somatic therapy that helps people increase contact with their physical experience. Too often, we lose contact with our bodies through social conditioning or relational trauma. By working to develop somatic awareness, we can refine our emotional intelligence and thus our sense of self-agency: If you know what you feel at a gut level, you can be clearer in your discernment, and empowered to ask for and claim what you need in your life.

Therapy can be one of the bravest and most life-changing experiences you can engage in. It's a personal journey of self-awareness and healing. A key aspect of that process is finding the appropriate therapist to support you on that journey. The right fit is important. My belief is that each person has within them the wisdom to know how to heal. My job as therapist is to help people connect with that inner wisdom and utilize the person's strengths to address the challenges they are currently facing.

I work with patients from a variety of backgrounds who have diverse concerns that bring them to therapy. In general, patients come to me because they want something to go better in their lives. The solution for some may be to optimize the way they think: about themselves, their circumstances, and about the people in their lives. For other's, there may be something that needs to be better understood about their inner lives: their emotional world, their fantasy life, their wishes, dreams, etc. Most enter therapy because some combination of their circumstances, symptoms, and awareness has pushed them to a point where they want more.

Music therapy is an excellent complementary therapy for a wide range of needs. It is important that music therapy clients are open to new experiences and exploring ways to accomplish their therapeutic goals through different active and passive music exercises designed to encourage emotional expression, communication, and regulation. You do not need to be able to play instruments, sing, or write music to participate in music therapy sessions.
