Imagine confusion and emotional pain transforming into wisdom and clarity. As a seasoned therapist I offer compassionate support in a safe, comfortable environment. Incorporating body, mind and spirit in a practical approach to growth and change, I have successfully helped many individuals and couples find relief from anxiety and depression and improve their relationships. As we learn to see things more clearly, anger can be transformed into compassion, and fear can dissolve into acceptance, allowing us to be fully present and alive to celebrate our lives with joy and happiness.
Relationships are opportunities for growth, self-knowledge and fulfillment. I've helped many couples improve communication, resonance, intimacy, and resolve differences. I bring to my work years of meditation and utilize Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy, blending CBT, Psychodynamic, Humanistic and Family Systems theories, with mindfulness.
The therapeutic relationship is a process in which we learn that obstacles show us what we need to work on. I offer a supportive environment in which you can take the risks necessary for your growth. I will work compassionately and insightfully with your wisdom in a supportive, integrative approach. Together we can discover the path to wholeness.
