"I treat adults as well as adolescents and children, most frequently through individual therapy. I also work with couples. I work with people with a wide range of problems and especially enjoy working with people experiencing anxiety in relationships or at work . I also enjoy working with people who are unhappy and don't know why, and people who are repeating self-defeating patterns they feel unable to change. Meeting with a well-trained and experienced therapist can be a powerful and effective way of strengthening one's confidence and developing a personal sense of control over one's life."

Psychotherapy can be very helpful in relieving the symptoms of depression, anxiety, defensiveness and stress by uncovering the underlying causes.

"I believe that mental health issues arise when we are faced with overwhelming emotions in isolation. Without the necessary support, emotions get so big and daunting that we defend ourselves against them, leading to numbness, anxiety, and depression. My goal is to invite intense emotions into the room so that we can learn to regulate them together and they can be reincorporated into the psyche, leading to a fuller and healthier life. "

"I warmly welcome you as you are, and hold a safe space to support your intention for growth and healing as your witness and companion. I offer experiential therapy, so you can go beyond cognitive understanding of an issue to actually having a transfomative experience in session. I hold a body-based, integral, and spiritual/transpersonal frame for the work of therapy. This means that relief and healing can come from integrating mind with body and emotions, and expanding awareness. This can not only alleviate what is causing our pain, but also awaken our dormant potentials."

Others begin psychotherapy because they find themselves cycling repeatedly through unhealthy relationship patterns and want to find a way out.
