"I provide depth-oriented psychotherapy for people from all walks of life who are struggling with a loss of meaning, confusion about one's place in the world and spiritual stagnation. This could manifest in hopelessness about one's career, a mid/quarter life crisis, or feeling stuck in a relationship, too frozen to make a change. My approach is warm, collaborative and compassionate. I also treat families and children with behavioral issues."

"If you are seeking therapy there may be some good reasons that I would be a good fit for you. You may have tried many different methods of healing but find that there are places that you have not been able to tend to alone. These may be places that are very overt or hidden from view due to cultural, social or economic issues. They may be longstanding or new, but they are causing confusion and suffering at this time. These issues may involve gender or sexuality, complex grief, or cumulative trauma. This is a perfect time to seek help."

"What I believe: Relationships are unique and come in countless shapes and sizes over time. Right now, relationships are already happening and changing in your life every day. Love is available in ourselves when we choose it, and choosing love in ourselves brings more love into our relationships. Yes, all relationships shift and change, and at the same time, love can regenerate again and again in the most mysterious moments and forms if we stay open and curious. The co-creative journey of intimate relationships is a fundamental part of our human well-being. You are lovable."

"My experience comes from 23 years of helping children, adults, couples and families in both Community Mental Health and Private Practice. My approach is eclectic and tailored to each individual's needs to facilitate healing and growth. Through my years of experience I have witnessed over and over again people coming into therapy with great pain, discomfort and despair but with time, (sometimes within a very short time) their symptoms diminish and a whole new person emerges. Crisis times can be extremely painful and distressful but they can also be opportunities for growth and healing through therapy."
