I am dedicated to helping you live fully, love freely and express yourself authentically. Together we will work to build the skills and understanding to develop lasting change in your life. Any number of situations can cause you to feel lost, stressed, anxious, unable to relate to your friends, lovers, coworkers or even yourself. I understand how overwhelming these feelings can be, and how lonely you might feel. I can help. Therapy is a time for you to share your deepest feelings, thoughts, fears, hopes, and desires with someone who is whole-heartedly there for you, hearing and understanding you with compassion.

I will help you develop embodied, compassionate mindfulness-based skills to help you with regulation and resilience. My tool kit includes somatic, mindful and expressive practices to help re-wire younger adaptive patterns that no longer serve. We will listen deeply to your experience including thoughts, body sensations and creative expression.

Helping people experience their full potential at home and work has been my life long pursuit and passion. Just as our body will naturally heal itself from a wound, so is our natural movement toward healing and health, I trust this movement in my clients and in myself.
