Each of us has a story to tell, and each of us has a journey to walk. As a therapist, I utilize my role to hold these stories, and to facilitate exploration and personal growth along each individual path. I am passionate about helping others navigate the mystery of life in ways that feel authentic--to help those I sit with identify and address old patterns; develop greater understanding and self-awareness; and create futures that feel fulfilling. I view counseling as an avenue that can help people discover their personal strengths, and reconnect them with deeper insight and meaning.

In terms of my philosophy, I utilize an integrated approach as a depth psychotherapist, operating from a systems theory background, with a lens that is relational and attachment-theory informed. I assess presenting problems holistically--treating symptoms as helpful indicators of what is needed/lacking in the individual or relationship.

When working with adults, I use a positive approach to creatively encounter issues in ways that promote integration of the self, and greater understanding of what compels, inspires, and motivates. With children/adolescents, I use play therapy, art, sandtray, and narrative, in addition to teaching mindfulness techniques and coping skills.
