It takes courage to seek out professional help. This may be your first time starting therapy or you are ready to continue the process after a new life challenge has come up. I strongly believe that you already have the inner resources you need to feel better, but may need assistance accessing these resources in a healthy way. Our work together will be about finding out what blocks you from feeling more empowered and alive. By learning new ways to be with difficult thoughts and experiences, it will be easier to meet the challenges and change that life inevitable brings.

I help people with a critical inner voice develop acceptance and compassion for themselves. My specialities include trauma, anxiety, depression, codependency, finding life/work balance, and providing LGBTQ+ affirming services. I've worked with many folks who grew up with alcoholism or substance abuse in the home, parents who fought often, and those who felt like they had to walk on egg shells. I've also worked with folks who have family members with addiction, those who identify as people pleasers, and those struggling to have fulfilling relationships. I'm especially passionate about helping other helpers, activists, and educators.

My clients are hard-working and desire a better quality of life. They are willing to be challenged, trying new techniques to move forward. I use information about normal developmental transitions to move people when they are stuck. The focus is on identity and spirituality as themes I weave into my work. This does not mean organized religion, rather concepts such as connections, acceptance, peace, and letting go. If you choose to combine religion and spiritualuity, for your own growth, that is your choice.

The word psychotherapy comes from the ancient Greek word “psyche” meaning, soul, breath and spirit, + therapy, therapeia: healing. Soul healing. I look at psychotherapy as such: that the soul is a healer and seeks healing. Some of us hear the soul’s cry. We experience it deeply and it is disorienting, and confusing, being taken down a dark path which seems endless. We can either run away, or stay helpless in such situations. Or we can start to listen to the deeper calling of soul and work towards healing.
