"There is no story that is not true." Chinua Achebe We all have a true story about ourselves, but sometimes we feel that we cannot tell it. If you have experienced or seen loss, death or violence; if you have been judged, unaccepted or belittled; if you feel different from those around you, it can become more and more difficult to reach out past negative or confusing feelings. I am an interpersonal and experiencial therapist and will use mindfulness, imagery, and mind/body techniques based on your human experience to find relief and solutions with you.

Specialty areas are anxiety, depression, loss, grief, abuse of all forms, exposure/experience of violence, recovery from substance abuse/eating disorders, communication problems, loss of joy, work-related stress, family of origin exploration, identity, stages of development through aging, infidelity, divorce, social isolation, chronic pain or fatigue, stress due to medical problems.

Practice focus: reduce shame/guilt; build acceptance and tolerance for frustration/anxiety in your mind and body; identify what you have been doing that works, and find more ways to improve your experience each day.
