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).

If the relationship you are in is struggling, if you feel alone or as if you keep having the same fight, if you are struggling with some type of betrayal or anger  I can help.  In your first sessions we will discover the things that are holding your relationship back from being what you thought it could be when you first met. As we work together I will help you identify where new skills are needed and get you headed toward the relationship you have been longing for.

It can be very challenging to see things clearly in life. I help individuals re-adjust their way of looking at themselves, their relationships, and the world. Through psycho-dynamic exploration, I come alongside in the discovery of what is possible, as it is my belief that the most crucial part of therapy is the relationship that builds between patient and therapist. It is often easier to shine a light into uncertain areas of one's heart and mind when someone else is holding the flashlight.

Therapy can be one of the bravest and most life-changing experiences you can engage in. It's a personal journey of self-awareness and healing. A key aspect of that process is finding the appropriate therapist to support you on that journey. The right fit is important. My belief is that each person has within them the wisdom to know how to heal. My job as therapist is to help people connect with that inner wisdom and utilize the person's strengths to address the challenges they are currently facing.

Are you HAPPY? In my 35 years in private practice I have found that what most people are looking for is HAPPINESS. Through my personal work in my own therapy and studying with Tibetan Masters and Native Elders I have been blessed with the secret of finding happiness. It is my life's work to share how to achieve happiness with individuals,couples and families. I have also come to believe that EMPATHY is the key to healthy,communicative relationships. I studied with Dr. Marshall Rosenbergs' and intergrate his techniques for Non-Violent Communication Skills in my work.

Whether you are coming to therapy because you are battling addiction, have relationship issues, unresolved trauma, or are striving for more balance in your life, I am here to help. Making an appointment with a therapist takes courage and is the first step toward personal growth and change. Some people come to therapy to improve their communication skills while others come to explore their unresolved pain that may show up in various symptoms such as, depression, anxiety, or substance abuse. If the underlying pain is not dealt with, life can seem difficult and maybe even unbearable. There is no need to suffer. There is hope.

I see therapy as a powerful process because of the collaborative relationship between the therapist and the client. When a person chooses to begin the therapeutic process, they enter into a safe space in which they can begin to free themselves from that which has become constricted or blocked in their life. In this process, I offer companionship, interest, support, and alliance. Your life narrative becomes our focus, with sustained curiosity, attention and empathy. As a client, you then can become more curious, attentive, and empathic towards yourself.
