"I offer a Humanistic approach and introduce the concept of person in relation to their environment as a means of forming a hope-filled foundation for therapy. By acknowledging how internal experiences are highly sensitive to external conditions we support a frame of healing that envisions each person as whole and fully capable of personal development. I incorporate elements of both Psychodynamic and Systems Theory to facilitate self-exploration while also addressing how culture, society and all host of environmental and systemic factors may impact our overall health and wellness.

You're aware of your potential and people reflect it back to you, but you're having trouble finding traction. You're not connecting with your work the way you want to, and your co-working relationships are "fine," but not satisfying in the way you'd like them to be.

"I work with individuals toward connecting to themselves, and couples and family members connecting to one another. When there's space, time, curiosity and full acceptance from a safe other, what needs to be seen and heard from the depths arises and then guides towards healing, wholeness and connection. The injuries of current and past show up to speak truth and release - interpersonal, familial, intergenerational, and from impacts of oppression, discrimination, alienation, abuse, and neglect. When injuries heal, freedom and connection arise, depression and anxiety fall away. This process happens with deep listening and care."

My clients tend to be high functioning adults who have reached a critical point where something has to give. Often this becomes evident while undergoing a major life transition such as a break up, divorce, the death of a loved one, or a career change. These low points can be scary and painful, but they can also be incredible opportunities for growth and healing. But growing is hard work and sometimes we can't do it on our own."
