My approach as a psychotherapist is to meet my clients where they are, honoring their unique life experience, offering strategies and responses that address their specific needs. Effective therapy works on the impacts of trauma, privilege, and oppression, addressing suffering at the psycho-emotional as well as socio-political-ecological levels. Together we explore your individual mind-heart-body experience in the context of our collective interdependent cultural situation. I understand psychotherapy as a collaborative endeavor. I practice listening deeply, with curiosity and respect, to support my clients’ innate capacity for self-awareness, growth, and well-being. Effective therapy requires authentic contact between therapist and client.  As the therapeutic relationship unfolds it can become a catalyst for healing and transformation. I am a fellow traveler, working on my own growth and transformation, while in service to my clients.
I have worked with adults, couples, families, and children with developmental differences and behavioral issues. I have personal and professional experience integrating mindfulness-based approaches as well as eco-psychological principles and practices. In addition to office-based support, I offer "walking therapy" session outdoors. Typically, we would start inside and develop a treatment plan prior to leaving the office. I believe that movement particularly in a natural setting is highly beneficial for many clients facilitating greater self-awareness, regulation, and healing.
I would invite you to reach out by calling or by contacting me through my website. We can set up a free 30 minute consultation by phone or in person. I look forward to hearing from you.
