I look forward to meeting each new client and getting to know him or her. I know with our busy lives we all have a number of stressors and conflicts. Sometime our usual ways of dealing with these no longer work. My goal is to help you find effective ways to deal with these stressors, so that you can complete therapy feeling happier, more in charge of your life, and can reach that place deep inside where each of us is our very best self.

SEX is fun! Sex is a blessings! Sex is a gift to a couple committed to each other! However, when the desire for sex drives a person to self-destructive behaviors, the fun is long gone. However, there is HOPE! I offer help to both the addict and the partner: for the addict....sobriety and then recovery, for the partner.....healing and recovery. Knowing that sobriety is but the FIRST step to lifetime recovery, I offer the tools and support needed for success. Addiction, that of your own or your spouse or your child or your parent, damages all areas of your life. I am equipped to help you survive the destruction. Recovery is POSSIBLE!

I like to work with people of all ages. Often with adults I am interested in getting beyond everyday conversation into deeper layers of self, incorporating an inward focus of the body, mind and spirit. I am eclectic and offer a strength-based approach to help with depression, anxiety, transitions, relationship challenges, overall stuckness and other challenges. My approach is humanistic and compassionate, providing the support needed to get through hardships into a more empowered, creative and celebratory self.

In my therapy practice, I’m interested in helping you discover how what you’ve learned in the past is keeping you from getting what you want and what’s available to you in the present. Such work involves a willingness to explore the patterns you’ve relied upon as a result of the systems in which you formed. By shining the light of awareness on relational habits, we can find more choices for how you want to show up in your life, you can become more self-directed and have greater trust in what might happen as a result. Through our process together, I hope to support you in implementing insights about your past to help you relate more

I believe the most important element for positive change is the relationship between the therapist and client. If the client can truly trust their therapist, he or she can allow themselves to explore, heal, and integrate all aspects of themselves. This leads to a feeling of wholeness and relief from anxiety, depression, low self esteem, and other issues. I use intuition and compassion, in addition to my training and education. I care about my clients, and feel honored to witness their efforts to grow and change. Buddhist philosophy informs my overall orientation towards the enduring resilience of the human spirit.

My priorities as we begin our healing relationship together are to ensure a sense of safety for you in the therapy process, as well as a sense of collaborativity. I take an integrative approach to healing, drawing on the following disciplines and treatment modalities: mindfulness practices, archetypal psychology, art therapy, play therapy, multiple somatic modalities, and nutritional psychology.

You may be seeking out therapy now if you struggle with depression, anxiety, addiction, or feeling disconnected from yourself or others. Things may just feel off. Perhaps past trauma is making life hard today. You've come here hoping things can get better. Healing happens when we befriend ourselves and developing deeper understanding of our experiences in the world and relationship to that experience. I will support you in exploring your hopes, struggles, fears, and longings that dwell within so you can live the life you want. Whatever the current challenge, I work alongside you to reconnect to yourself and foster healing.

My practice centers on promoting change through love, compassion and acceptance. You may have a sense that something isn't right in your life but aren't sure what it is. Or you may know what it is but have no idea how to change it. You hope that if you just try harder or stay busy your situation will change and, when that doesn't work, you beat yourself up. Neither forcing change nor avoiding problems work because we must first feel accepted. Whether you have anxiety, troubles setting boundaries, difficulties cultivating healthy relationships or are struggling with the aftermath of a traumatic experience, I am here to help.
