I can't imagine getting much out only hearing “uh-huh" or the overly used, “how does that make you feel?”. Therapy can be a conversation rather than a monologue. Occasional use of humor and swearing can help you lower stress and defenses when stuck in fear, uncertainty, or judgement. I don’t believe in a sterile language environment. I invite you to swear if it helps you express how difficult, unfair, scary, or delightful a situation is. I find this uncensored atmosphere leads to an honest therapeutic relationship. If you struggle with anxiety, depression, or life stressors, you may find these techniques useful and validating.

We each possess a great wellspring of aliveness, which yearns to come forth and express itself, no matter what long-held beliefs act to constrict its expression. I see the process of therapy as both loosening the knots of old beliefs and finding ways to tap into this aliveness, in order to live a more authentic and satisfying life. When working with clients, I use an approach that is relational and collaborative, helping clients make the best use of the strengths they bring to therapy. My work incorporates experiential, somatic, EMDR, and mindfulness-based techniques.

I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. I work with couples, individual adults, and adolescents and their families. I realize that it is a big decision to enter therapy. When I was much younger, I remember being afraid of the idea of therapy. Then one day I experienced a crisis and found myself in front of a therapist. I mark that day as a major turning point in my life. Instead of having to deal with frequent uncomfortable feelings (e.g. anxiety, depression, feelings of unworthiness and shame), the clouds lifted and I just felt--well healthier.

The thought of starting therapy can feel overwhelming. Sometimes we are ashamed to ask for help, or embarrassed by what we are seeking help for. The truth is, though, that in order to move forward, we have to face those things that are causing our pain and unhappiness. And sometimes we need help to do that. Asking for help takes courage. Allowing oneself to be vulnerable takes strength.
