"The most significant predictor of a successful therapy experience is the quality of the relationship between therapist and client. Building a safe, nurturing relationship is where I excel. My style is warm and highly interactive, best suited for clients who prefer a therapist who feels very human, less like the old "medical model." I assist clients to explore their thought patterns and corresponding emotional reactions, and to identify unconscious assumptions they hold about themselves, which inform their behavioral patterns. I also provide practical tools for regulating anxiety, managing depression, and processing grief & loss."

"Grief Counseling is a healing space for individuals, couples, and communities to receive support to grieve. It's a sacred time to practice gently welcoming your grief and bringing a compassionate curiosity to what you are feeling in the present moment. This type of support guides you to turn towards your experience with love and provides an opportunity to come out on the other side stronger and more resilient. You will also receive new tools and resources to continue your healing moving forward."

"You feel like you’re walking through life in a fog. You’ve gone through all the motions, and done all the “right things,” to get to this point in life, and yet it still isn't enough. There’s so much that you’re hiding on the inside, so much that you want to get out, but it’s scary to do that. The thoughts and inner critic are so loud, that it’s hard to imagine them not being there. We’ve learned so many survival skills to get us to this point in life, and they’ve worked. They’ve gotten you here and that’s amazing! But are they still serving you? What place do they have in your life now? "
