I enable clients to access the wisdom of their emotions to enhance their relationships and lives. Happy relationships and solid self-esteem are the foundations of psychological and emotional well-being, while disharmony, worries, and unhappiness signal that we need to experience new ways to effectively express feelings and enact aspirations in our lives. I strive to provide an inviting and nonjudgmental therapeutic context to empower clients to find satisfying ways to address concerns. My integrative approach draws upon Western science and Eastern wisdom, including Buddhist approaches to well-being.

ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS! I believe that positive change can occur when we are given the space to explore the ways in which we cope with our life experiences. Seeking therapy is an honorable step towards living a more purposeful and balanced life. Creating a safe, caring, non-judgmental environment enables clients to explore themselves through their unique experiences. My goal in therapy is to facilitate healing for individuals by looking at each person through a holistic, culturally sensitive, and strength-based lens. That means that therapy will be tailored to your specific needs and goals.

All of us need help at some time. My clients tell me they feel understood but not judged when they meet with me - and that their own understanding of themselves and their challenges grows. But I know that effective therapy work must go beyond being cared about and understood. I bring a commitment to helping people change problems in their lives.
