**Note: I am not currently accepting new patients.** We are all in trouble. Some of us are anxious, trying to avoid trouble at all costs. Some of us start trouble with loved ones for reasons we can't understand. Some of us get into trouble at school or at work. And many of us are troubled by past traumas that we can't seem to shake. My aim in therapy is to partner with you around your goals and your values, to figure out what's worth your time and trouble. Therapy is a time, just for you, to heal and grow at your own pace.

What change would you like to see in your life? I would like to see you make that change. Individual therapy takes an expert and a consultant. The client is the expert on their own person and life experiences, and the counselor is the consultant who is hired to help identify and problem solve that expert's barriers to success. I specialize in helping people gain emotional stability, a strong sense of identity, and the self-confidence they need to make changes in their lives that they want to make.

There is never a wrong time to start therapy, nor is there a right one. We won’t worry about right or wrong, but instead we’ll accept where you are - as we work together to discover where you want to go and how to get there. I spend a lot of my free time hiking, seeking out new and interesting terrain. The growth you will hopefully experience during our work together may be much like a challenging hike, with some gentle slopes and triumphant summits, but also with trips, stumbles, and strenuous climbs. I cannot climb your mountains for you, but I will climb them with you and help to show you the way forward.

Accompaniment matters. Relationships transform. We sit together to access the health that is at the center of every human being, even when one of us can’t feel it. We sit because healing happens in relationship, access to true self is made easier in the presence of another person’s settled nervous system, and because your healing matters for the health of all of us. Whether you are facing overwhelm, anger, a frozen feeling, compulsions, depression, trauma, anxiety, or facing other difficult experience, we can touch it with awareness and respect. Our experience includes joy, includes pain, and includes connection and compassion.

***I am not currently accepting new clients.***I believe that therapy is a collaboration. As a therapist my first step is to help clarify why therapy is sought. From there we work together to develop strategies for relief, in the short and long term. My role is to provide information about the treatments that could be pursued; with information and context, one can then make informed choices about the best path forward. Common treatment options include: Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Mindfulness interventions. A brief treatment is usually all that is needed, but I offer longer-term depth work when required.

There is a sacredness in being present to another as a guide on this journey we call life. Whether it is exploring inner resources for healing and growth or the possibilities for deep and lasting change, it is an honor to work with people that are desiring a better way to be themselves in the world.
