All of us create patterns of behavior in our formative years to help us survive real and perceived dangers. What are those patterns? How have those patterns inhibited our lives today? How can we break free from those patterns and develop a more alive and integrated sense of self?

My roots as a therapist and healer have seeded over the past thirty-five years, bringing substance and depth to my one-on-one sessions with couples and individuals. During this time, I have maintained a private practice, which has always consisted of process-oriented consciousness work -- a means by which to enter safely and deeply into the inner landscape of the psyche for positive and real world change. My results-oriented approach to psychology is derived from the commitment to a conscious process and the intrapsychic relationship one can access when choosing to turn toward--and look at--oneself.

The motivations for and the process of psychotherapy are unique to each individual. You may be seeking therapy because you feel "stuck", or find that behaviors and methods of coping that have been effective for you in the past no longer work. You may be seeking therapy because you lack relationships in your life that are truly supportive and witnessing to your feelings and needs and desire a place to speak honestly and confidentially in an environment of deep listening and no judgment.

Self-acceptance, body positivity; the messages are great in theory. But try as you may, you can't seem to live them yourself. It's painful to feel uncomfortable in your own body; the shame, guilt, and hiding's wearing on you. It's painful to feel not enough, thinking, "If only I could look a certain way, then I'll be seen and loved." Starving, binging, or purging to feel a sense of safety- because you're unable to express your real feelings and needs. You're hurt; looking for acceptance in the wrong places from the wrong people. Secretly thinking “I can’t get out from this vicious cycle of negative relationships, food, & body image.

My psychotherapy approach is right for you if you want to see and understand the tendencies and beliefs (often unconscious) that hold you back or lead you into situations that don't serve you. Every problem and painful experience is an opportunity to connect with your own heart's wisdom, even as we deal directly with the issue or difficulty you are facing. Healing your relationship with yourself positively affects all your relationships. For instance, feelings of not being good enough turn into compassionate acceptance - of others as well. "Baggage" from the past that weighs you down is released.

Are you a child, adolescent or adult having difficulty functioning at work, school, or in relationships? Sometimes a history of trauma, self defeating and limiting belief systems interfere with our ability to love, work and play. I can help when old ways of adapting to stressors no longer work. Change is necessary at the mind, body and spiritual level for adaptation to occur. We will work together through your transformation. You can learn new ways to tolerate what has been overwhelming and you can develop new, healthier coping skills to help you manage what was formerly intolerable about daily living.
