I work from the idea that all of our life experiences are opportunities to discover ourselves. The road to peace, health, healing, purpose, meaning, and happiness is learning how to allow and be more of YOU, and less of who you think you should/ need to be. You and I will process your story, get to know your patterns, see what is getting in the way, and ultimately help you feel empowered and inspired.

If you're overwhelmed, anxious, or feel you've lost your way, therapy can help. You can take your power back. I help people who have experienced trauma and/or stress regain control of their lives. Extreme stress (trauma) can make it hard to cope and move past the experience. Circumstances like personal crisis, injury/pain (physical and emotional), and helplessness make it feel difficult to move forward. You've survived the traumatic event; you can heal and improve your life! I can walk with you so you're not alone.

Finding the right therapist is an important and sometimes difficult process. I suggest an initial consultation for you to meet me, discuss your concerns and get a sense of who I am and our connection. My approach is nurturing, mindful and responsive to your unique situation. I emphasize self-reflection and understanding over pathology and believe that therapy works best as an active partnership. I will be doing my part well if you feel you can safely explore anything that comes up for you in our time together.

Are you leaving substance use treatment and looking for support? Maybe you're still using alcohol or drugs to help you cope with life. Have you tried to stop using and still find yourself unable to control your use? Do you feel like 12-step meetings aren't a good fit for you? If this sounds like you, then I may be able to help you. As a person in recovery, I am familiar with the never ending cycle of depression, anxiety, shame and regret that accompanies active addiction.

Life is a funny thing. And often terribly complicated. During our journey in this world, we often face challenges that can feel too big or ongoing. Whether it’s with chronic feelings of anxiousness, depression, emptiness, issues about sexual orientation, gender, or ethnicity, relationship conflict, sleep disturbances, substance misuse, school or work issues, or any combination of those, many of us struggle silently. But you don't have to. It can help to work with a therapist with a deep understanding of what it’s like with some of those struggles and who is passionate about helping others learn to thrive despite these adversities.

All of us have been wounded by life in different ways, personally and in and through our relationships. We need healing and find it painful to examine our wounds. The poet, Rumi, wrote: "Don't turn away. Keep your gaze on the bandaged place. That's where the light enters you." I went back to graduate school so that I could sit with others willing to do this courageous work. Maybe you are ready for such a journey. I work primarily with adults, but I have worked with children for over 30 years as well.

There is a lot of pressure in today’s world to feel good, to handle our troubles on our own. We are led to believe that the signs of health and success is the absence of struggle, that we are weak if we reach out for help. And yet we all struggle to some degree. If struggle is a part of life, then I believe we must also contain the potential to struggle well. To struggle takes strength and courage.

It is common to see therapy as a journey to discover the Self. We have familiar maps, or patterns, which can lead to unhappiness or self-sabotaging behavior. You may find yourself stranded in all-too-familiar territory with little idea of how to move on. Like many journeys, it can be an exciting adventure but can also be full of unknowns. I see my role as your guide, to blaze new “routes” together that have worked well for others. As Helen Keller once said: “What I am looking for is not out there, it is in me.” I truly believe the exquisite joy you find by falling in love with yourself is a journey you don’t want to miss!

**NOT CURRENTLY ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS** My approach to therapy is through the lens that people are usually just trying to feel “okay” and that this manifests in various ways. Our shared work is in owning the parts of our lives and our selves that we may habitually avoid or reject. I work with individuals to identify the creative ways they have used to block contact from their full experience, whether through substance abuse, codependency, or other subtle or more overt strategies. My style is direct and open, using a here-and-now perspective rooted in mindfulness-based and existential-humanistic theories.
