Healing looks different for all of us. As we navigate different seasons, relationships, and themes in life, it can be helpful to have a space that is yours. You are the expert of your experience, and I believe in healing practices that emphasize collaboration and connection. I show up with a relational approach, ready to meet you where you are and how you want to support growth and exploration. I value social justice, supporting a good fit between therapist and client, and flexibility. My practice integrates the honoring of your cultural values, intersecting identities and meaningful relationships that inform who we are.

My priority as a therapist is to create a safe space for you. When any of us seeks out therapy, we are likely suffering. To suffer is to be in a very tender place, and I want to honor that. Whether your suffering comes from early childhood trauma, more recent losses, relationship problems, social injustice, adjustment to big changes in your life...I want you to feel safe and companioned as you move toward tending those places of wounding and toward healing.

My therapeutic style is grounded in Humanistic and Cognitive-Behavioral therapy with a pragmatic, down-to-earth style. Each client's therapy is individualized, collaborative, and strengths based. I help clients learn to regulate and manage feelings that overwhelm them and negatively affect their thoughts, moods, and attitudes that, in turn, lead to destructive behavior. Whether it is anxiety, depression, diminished self-esteem, or relationship issues, individual clients come to understand their present circumstances in light of their past. I am committed to helping clients improve relationships and gain self knowledge.

"In every person there lies buried deep in the heart a desire for a certain sort of life: a life that is free and unencumbered, a life that is full of beauty, joy and fulfillment" (A H Almaas). Are you struggling with a relationship? Did you suffer a loss? Are you struggling to find meaning in your life, or are you still troubled by the effects of a difficult childhood? Psychotherapy can offer a path to healing where you can get back in touch with your true nature, and experience this as inherently healthy, whole, and a source of compassion and intuitive wisdom.

Do other therapists seem judgmental? Don't understand? Won't listen to you? If you need to talk about anything and everything, clients tell me I have a strong capacity for compassion, empathy, and care. At the same time, I’m forthright and candid. I see you and hear you—a whole person (body, mind, spirit) living in an interactive and interconnected world. I believe you're the expert in you--even if you're not yet aware of it. My role is to help you find that, and bring my own holistic vision, experience, training, expertise, and tools to the table, so you can work to be the best possible version of you.

Are you tired of feeling stuck and that nothing seems to change no matter what you do? Maybe you are feeling overwhelmed and anxious and it’s starting to affect your relationships and your work. Or maybe it’s because you’re in a relationship where you have the same fights over and over and nothing seems to get better. Unresolved hurt and resentment may be making you feel distant from your partner. You may long to be closer but feel unsure that things can change. Feeling disconnected or distant from others is painful and can leave us feeling alone, insecure and full of self-doubt.
