It can feel intimidating to seek therapy — like embarking on a path into the deepest woods. Psychotherapy can be likened to traveling through these woods alongside someone trained and experienced in navigating the wilderness. Undertaking the path together, it becomes more possible to move bravely into the dark, scale the hills, descend the slopes, become curious about the landscape, and explore uncharted terrain.

With any change comes growing pains, which is why I specialize in working with professionals navigating important life transitions including career decisions, romantic relationships, friendships, and adjustment to parenthood. Often individuals present questions on how they can feel more fulfilled or satisfied in life. Or how to grow in confidence, or become more grounded in oneself. Many look to find better ways to find meaning and fulfillment in our Modern, Technology-Focused culture.

We humans are relational. We all need support, and this is a meaningful step -- choosing to enter therapy and accept that support. As an LMFT, my emphasis is on relationship. That could be relationships to anyone and ultimately it is relationship to oneself. I work with empathy, partnering with you in your growth, with the aim of expanding your love of self and life. I ask that you join me in being curious about you and to treat our work as a lab for learning which you can take outside of our sessions and apply to your life. We are all naturally striving toward greater health and aliveness -- it is the thrust of life.

In this time of uncertainty and upheaval, you are not alone if you are are facing grief, anxiety, loss of motivation, strained relationships, and an increase in hard-to-break habitual responses to stress. You may want to engage in meaningful ways with the world's needs, but find yourself lost, blocked by negative beliefs and painful feelings, or burdened by reverberations of earlier losses and traumas. If you are seeking a skilled and compassionate collaborator who engages with the particulars of who you are (your identities, spirituality, sexuality, sense of humor, creative vision, and values), It would be my honor to support you.
