About

Whether or not they say it, most of the people that I see want to live a life that is worth living. They want to feel empowered-- to be active participants in their lives. You may feel a void, emptiness, and that something is missing. Often people feel stuck in their lives because they have lost connection with a vital part of themselves and with their hopes and desires. This vitality is the source of our imagination and creativity. This internal source and "knowing" of what we need and want becomes disconnected, covered over by past disappointments, losses and fears.
You may find yourself engaging in old, unwanted patterns that undermine your efforts in life and hinder your relationships. When we lose touch with the important, vital parts of ourselves; we lose sight of who we are, our grounding, and access to our "true north"-- or our internal compass, GPS.
My approach is psychodynamic, psychoanalytic, relational, respectful and compassionate. I value the importance of deeply listening-- moment by moment and helping you to bring to light and give voice to your essential truth. These moments are the stepping stones toward living a life that feels of your making and creation.
