Most of us are trying to avoid our pain, in spite of the fact that it is an inevitable and crucial part of the human experience. In fact, we are never so fully human as when we surrender to the reality of our wounds. Only when we stay with our pain can we hope to learn what it has to teach us in the hopes of ultimately transforming it into something meaningful and life-giving that may just propel us into the life we've always wanted. But it is hard learning how to integrate our wounds. I will help you.

I strive to create a safe, respectful space in which we can work together to understand the current problems and conflicts impacting your life, and identify self-defeating patterns that keep you from reaching your full potential. We will watch to see how and when these patterns occur in the therapeutic process itself and work to trace problems back to their roots in earlier periods of your life. By gaining a deeper understanding of ourselves, we attain greater freedom to choose how we wish to live, to strengthen our relationships and find joy in life.

I offer support and intuitive guidance in a unique way. The focus is on helping you reconnect to the wise part of yourself, your Buddha/self, and to help you find the answers for your challenges within. We will explore this by looking at dreams and by learning to unlock the depths of your unconscious mind and the pure gold of wisdom that inhabits your psyche. I studied at the Pacifica Graduate Institute. This program is unique in that it provides a depth psychology approach to therapy. In other words the soul is included in therapy.

I think counseling is always useful, even when there's nothing "wrong." We get a lot of chances to go, go, go but not a lot to slow down and reflect. Usually it takes some crisis of feeling or relationship to tell us it's time. I see those crises as opportunities, doorways to deeper understanding. And because we're not fixed individuals, they come and go as we change and grow.

Is this you? Chronic feelings of insecurity. Difficulty trusting others. Excessive self-criticism for small mistakes. Debilitating anxiety and depression. Periods of losing attention and concentration. Getting stuck in a state of high alert. Sensitive to getting triggered into overwhelming thoughts and emotions. Pervasive self-hatred and a shame-based sense of identity. Resistance to giving and receiving love despite craving it. Beneath it all, there is a belief that you are broken. If you can relate to this there is a possibility that your suffering may be rooted in unresolved trauma. And, freedom is possible.
