Sometimes we need extra help when facing particularly painful, overwhelming, or puzzling situations. By setting aside a dedicated time and place in which to bring your full attention (and mine) to the task of sorting out what pains or blocks you, you give yourself the best opportunity to craft the life you wish to live. In the company of a skilled practitioner, the process of therapy can help you work through old patterns and address the challenges at hand. You can experience a greater sense of meaning, purpose, and peace in your life and in your relationships.

Are old relationship patterns, experiences of trauma and neglect, or stuck ways of thinking interfering with your ability to step more fully into your life? Therapy can and should go beyond achieving a reduction in distress. In my work I aspire to facilitate development of a deeper connection with inner strength, vision, passion and conviction while addressing your issues of concern.

I feel honored to work with people who are deeply examining the relationship they have to themselves and to the world. The therapy I offer is an exploration of what blocks aliveness and an awake, open, compassionate heart. If you are at a point in your life where you need some help navigating through a particular quality of being or a habit adversely affecting you or people in your life, I can help. Working together we can restore your functioning and bring it to a higher level allowing you to creatively respond to your life rather than react.

As I see it, the primary role of a counselor is to serve as a mirror to help reveal what the client hasn't yet been able to see-especially those patterns of relating to self, others, and the environment that might be causing suffering. At the same time, the counselor is there to reflect, affirm, and strengthen the client's unique gifts and talents.One of the biggest impediments to healing, growth, and creativity is shame. To help clients move through this debilitating emotion, I use a combination of mindfulness, body awareness, and other healing modalities.

Reaching out is not always easy and it's the first step to creating change. I have always believed we work to achieve success and happiness in the best ways we know how. There are times in our lives where we find ourselves unable to find solutions, move forward or times when you simply want to understand. This is where I can be of help. I encourage everyone to talk with several therapists to get a feel if this is the right person for you.

This work is empowering to my clients as they connect with a flow of healing and transformation from within themselves and learn new tools for living more fully-tools that they can carry into their lives long after our time together has passed.

Everyone has an innate ability to enjoy a life balanced with love, work and play. When personal issues and uncomfortable feelings block this ability, we need to grow and heal. My calm, gentle nature and use of humor helps people explore and resolve these blocks. Humor is important for relaxing with light-hearted laughter and making shifts in one’s life are intertwined. I’ve helped numerous couples repair broken relationships, heal hurts and resentments, while reestablishing meaningful communication. A sense of safety, relief, and a softening of the heart occurs as each partner feels heard and understood. Blaming stops and problem solving begins.

These are strange times. I have 15 years of experience working with people of all ages. My training includes various methods, including somatic (body-centered), mindfulness, and "parts work" therapies. Sometimes therapy involves simply listening so that you can gain clarity from a safe place. Other times, I offer exercises to help you access and work through the unconscious. Therapy should feel like it's helping clear through the clutter of daily living.

Psychotherapy is an art and science providing individuals with an opportunity to heal and grow. In a confidential and caring environment I support individuals to face painful aspects of their lives, access their inner resources, and begin taking new and healthy steps into their futures. It is natural and necessary to grow and change throughout life. Individuals are called by life circumstances, relationships with others, or by an internal restlessness to relinquish old ways and to develop new abilities. In our work together, clients and I identify steps toward creating the future they want to live.
