We all have a basic need to be connected, to talk about the things that matter most to us, and to feel seen and known. The experiential therapy I offer is an opportunity to explore familiar ways of relating to others and then to experience and practice new ways of connecting. Over time, this therapeutic relationship generalizes out to your other relationships leaving you more connected, more confident, and more open hearted toward yourself & others. I have trained online and in person in both Internal Family Systems and Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy. If you are yearning for change, contact me via email.

**NOT ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS** Many times we find ourselves disconnected - both from ourselves and the world around us. Life moves quickly and we lose our ability to make choices in alignment with our core values. I invite people to soulfully nurture and explore the stories emerging in their lives, offering space to restore what feels depleted and therefore making room to engage life more fully. If you are interested in experiencing greater resonance within yourself and living a life with meaning, I encourage you to reach out. All change begins with curiosity and taking a first step.

Taking steps toward greater wholeness, healing, and mental well-being is a courageous act. Perhaps you've gotten to a point in your life where you know something needs to change, but it just feels too hard to do it on your own. Major life transitions such as beginning college, experiencing loss, or becoming a parent can cause pain, anxiety, confusion, suffering, or may leave you feeling like you're just not "yourself."

Accompaniment matters. Relationships transform. We sit together to access the health that is at the center of every human being, even when one of us can’t feel it. We sit because healing happens in relationship, access to true self is made easier in the presence of another person’s settled nervous system, and because your healing matters for the health of all of us. Whether you are facing overwhelm, anger, a frozen feeling, compulsions, depression, trauma, anxiety, or facing other difficult experience, we can touch it with awareness and respect. Our experience includes joy, includes pain, and includes connection and compassion.
