My job as a therapist is to help you take a step back from your life through mindfulness and really get to the heart of what's going on. We'll look at the ways your inner critic has sabotaged your life so far, all the ways you try to appease your inner critic by shutting yourself down, and discover what your life could look like if you didn't have to worry about the voice of shame popping up. We'll do a deep dive into your history to discover where the inner critic came from and the core beliefs that keep it alive.

“Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.” -Rumi- We all have times in life where we feel that something isn’t working, that something needs to change. Whether that something is a relationship, a job , a place or the way we experience our day to day lives, I am passionate about helping you walk that path to more authentic relationships and a more authentic life. Sometimes that journey is best explored individually, sometimes as a couple, and I love working with both.

I work with adults of many ages, and at different stages of life, such as launching or transitioning a career (including retirement), the struggle to find a new identity after divorce, & the challenges of health issues or disability.
"Listen to your life. See it for the fathomless mystery it is." - There is great benefit to be found from tuning into your heart and mind. What are these voices saying to you? Do you sense a disconnect between your desires in life and the person you present to others? Are you a spiritual person but you don't find this impacts your daily life? It is my aim to create a safe and welcoming space where one feels known and accepted just as they are. When one feels accepted, one is able to share more and more of their journey, including the painful parts. Feeling deeply heard & understood is a starting point toward transformation.

I care deeply about supporting people when they feel lonely, stuck and hopeless, and the usual things just aren't working. My clients tend to be high functioning adults who have reached a critical point where something has to give. Often this becomes evident while undergoing a major life transition such as a break up, divorce, the death of a loved one, or a career change. These low points can be scary and painful, but they can also be incredible opportunities for growth and healing. But growing is hard work and sometimes we can't do it on our own.

It may feel like we're stuck, like the past keeps repeating itself - whether it's the same kind of relationship, the critical voice in our head, a job we hate or the way we're treated by others. Trauma isn't just the 'big' events that happen to us. It's also the ways we've learned to interact with and expect our relationships to be - in other words, what we learned was "normal" from the first people who taught us how to relate. We carry these powerful messages with us and then recreate our reality with what we've been taught from the past. This specific kind of trauma is called complex trauma, and we can absolutely heal from it.

They need to address family of origin issues, primary relationship and parenting concerns, grief and mourning issues, job related issues, body image issues, etc.
Authentic change happens from the inside out. It can't be veneered onto one's surface. Painful life experiences create a complex web inside that shapes a person's world. This web can limit one's ability to find joy and meaning in life. Psychotherapy offers a way to access deep emotional experience. As therapy proceeds connections will start to appear between past & current life experience. Problematic internal patterns will become visible and open to reevaluation and change. As internal stress decreases, clarity, joy and meaning will have the chance to emerge.

in 1981, but throughout my career I've sought continued training in order to develop my skills.
It’s human to want things to be different but to feel wary of change; that’s how we get stuck. For more than 35 years I’ve helped people – adults, teens, pre-teens and couples - get unstuck. My down-to-earth and non-judgmental style will help you talk freely about your concerns and hopes. Together we’ll help you create a new direction in life that fits your unique circumstances - no "one size fits all" approach here. Whether your problem is with your child, your partner, your boss or yourself, I can help you sort it all out so you feel your life is back on track again.

Stress in these challenging times can trigger new trauma, while activating old ones. If you are navigating these times and feel lost while seeking a renewed sense of self, creativity or direction. If you feel trapped in patterns that no longer reflect who you are becoming, a Jungian depth approach may benefit you. Since 1997, I have aided individuals in resolving crises, deepening awareness, discovering meaning through Dreamwork, Astrology, Alchemy and BodySoul integration. have taught graduate courses in psychology and mentored therapists. I trained through Marion Woodman's BodySoul Leadership Program, Hypnotherapy and TRE.

Life can be hard but I'm guessing you already knew that.  All the hard stuff can leave us feeling overwhelmed, frustrated, or sad. Sometimes life's challenges become too difficult to overcome alone. Finding a safe and collaborative place to explore and address what is troubling you is the first step toward healing.  Perhaps you are struggling with anxiety, depression, grief, or challenges within a relationship. While there are no guarantees of what you will experience in therapy, research shows that therapy helps people. It works. Psychotherapy can elevate feelings of self worth, purpose, and improve your overall quality of life.
