About

Many of us are looking outside ourselves for love, fulfillment and joy only to find ourselves deeply dissatisfied, lonely and separated from connection and intimacy with others and ourselves. Life can be difficult and is filled with challenges and traumatic experiences that require our attention and care in order to heal. We are skilled at silencing the aching inside via escape hatches: excessive shopping, over/under eating, using drugs or alcohol, sex, gambling, gaming, etc. I believe the therapeutic relationship can offer support as we move into freedom by learning to live in the present moment with all life has to offer.
My background is in mental health, trauma and addiction. My goal is to provide care that is compassionate, supportive and rooted in mindfulness. I believe we are equipped with everything we need in order to heal. Therapy is not a way out of pain but an avenue we can use to bear pain skillfully as another component to a rich and rewarding life.
Beginning therapy for the first time or resuming after a break can be nerve-racking, exciting and overwhelming. It can bring up anxiety and can also bring a welcome sense of relief knowing a start has been made. Finding the right fit with a therapist can be challenging. I am hopeful I can provide answers to determine if I would be a helpful fit.
