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.

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.
