I have been privileged to help adults and couples with life transitions and stress-related problems; depression and anxiety; grief and bereavement; traumatic events of childhood and adulthood; sexual identity issues; and other life problems. I work to bring you in close touch with the parts of yourself that you have been avoiding, neglecting or rejecting, in order to develop a different relationship with yourself, a relationship of understanding, kindness and forgiveness. When we are no longer frightened by those parts of ourselves that were unacceptable, we slow down, lose our reactivity, and remain present, even in difficult circumstances.

Taking steps to create a more fulfilling life may be one of the most profound actions one can undertake. I believe that walking this path requires developing a curious and accepting relationship with oneself as well as being witnessed and supported by another - be they a therapist, partner, friend or family member. Once on this path, one can heal limiting beliefs, hurtful behaviors, and unhealthy relationships, and move toward a life of fulfillment, purpose and ease.

Do you feel life is restricting you from who you really want to be for yourself, your partner and/or your family? My primary goal in therapy is to help enhance your ability to make choices. I use personalized approaches to help empower your bravery to look inside yourself. The authenticity of these choices will lead to serving you and your relationships in the best ways possible. Assessing our sometimes, self-imposed, "roadblocks" in life can help us build accountability for our choices. This, in turn, allows these choices to become "building blocks" toward lasting joy for each relationship creation of your choice.

I've found that having a dedicated space to unpack your heart with someone who unconditionally supports your growth & has a skill set/capacity to do so is priceless. Therapy isn't just for healing trauma, working with a disorder but is a preventative gift (to you and your loved ones).

Change happens all the time, big and small. Sometimes it's unexpected , and sometimes you make it happen. It can be challenging, exciting, and worth living for; at the same time, it can be scary and upsetting. Losing everyday predictability can lead to uncomfortable feelings. And yet, we're always growing and moving from one set of challenges to another; from child to adult to parent; from family life to an empty nest or being alone; from one job to another, or from active career to retirement; from being single to being committed to another, or from commitment to independence.

Finding the right therapist can be challenging. In addition to speaking with you initially on the phone, I am happy to offer a free 50 minute consultation in my office so you can remove the guesswork and get a clear sense of what therapy with me will feel like. I bring a wealth of experience in treating everything from depression, anxiety and relationship challenges to ADHD, addictive behaviors and trauma. I have an excellent resource of referrals to physicians (both Western and naturopaths), psychiatrists, and nutritionists. Most importantly, I listen deeply to my clients and work collaboratively to facilitate change.

It takes a village...Navigating through the transitions and challenges in our lives is meant to be a collaboration with family, friends, elders, wise women and men. However, in the times of instant change and mobility, some may find themselves lost and alone, far from those they confide in and look up to. Sometimes they isolate for fear of vulnerability and the pressure to appear "to have it together". When this self-judgement and drive to be “perfect” eventally takes its toll, one can be left feeling bereft of deep connection to self and others. Finding a therapist you can trust and confide in, can help you find your way.
