About

The foundation of therapy is the relationship or bond we form between us. As your therapist, I aim to help you feel safe and secure. I aspire to help you feel warmly held within a therapeutic, flexible and trustworthy container of positivity, joy and hope. I offer compassionate, non-judgmental and caring listening to assist you to gain clarity as you express your needs and concerns, hopes and fears, losses and successes, dreams and ideas. I want you to feel and know my utmost respect and honor as we discuss your life’s most meaningful details and challenges. I will gently guide you and walk with you as you learn new skills for life.
You'll make valuable changes and improvements. You may learn valuable new coping skills, although I am also able to help you come to terms with the sources of the pain to be able to release it. I will aid you to heal at the root, so that the tree of your life may grow deeper and stronger. I can help you discover a reservoir of strength inside of you.
One of my strengths is to provide encouragement as you come to experience and know your own delightfulness as a unique human being with unique, creative gifts and qualities you would like to be able to express in the world. As you and I become more closely connected through our therapeutic healing work, we will transform your pain into joy.
