" I consider clients as equal participants in therapy sessions. I prefer to think of “the client” as “the initiator” and more importantly, as “the expert” in their own process. My role is “the reflector” of your unfolding process. I believe that each of us inherently has the ability to transform, and that this transformation can happen rapidly. My role as your reflector is to help you access your own inner healer. I do so with loving kindness and an emphasis on present-moment awareness. Together, we create a container where you can feel safe to access and express whatever wants to come forth. The work you do to heal – we do together!"

"My approach to psychotherapy is grounded in a deep respect for the strength and resilience of the human spirit. Suffering is a uniquely individual experience. You may be feeling a profound sense of loneliness, unable to relate to others or finding difficulty fitting in. Perhaps depression and anxiety are preventing you from feeling fully engaged in important relationships or your relationships unravel. You may find it difficult to be kind or patient with yourself. I work with adult individuals and couples who are seeking help with relationship/intimacy issues, depression/anxiety, low self-esteem, trauma and loss."
