"We live in Paradise but I realize at times even Paradise feels difficult. Looking for a therapist can be as challenging as the reasons we are seeking one. I approach therapy as a team, working together to find solutions, work through challenges, look at your strengths in an effort to bring some solace back into your life and get you living again, not just surviving. My style is primarily interactive, I work through the eyes of curiosity and I like to use humor and try to interject some fun into our therapy sessions, realizing how heavy it could be to work through your stuff."

"I offer radical psychotherapy for those who are deeply questioning their lives; psychotherapy for those who rock in so many ways and may even look great on paper, but still wonder, "Is it enough? Am I enough?" For all of you swimming in ambient anxiety, sleepwalking on the internet, unable to fully occupy your lives or your bodies, I promise you: There is so much more. Through deep mindfulness, attention to the unconscious, work with the body (that holds so much), hypnosis, and analysis, you will land inside of yourself, at the root of your questions. From here, there is a lighted pathway. You don't have to walk it alone. "

"Do you want more ease, joy, and meaning in your life? Therapy can help. Aside from having the obvious goal of relieving anxiety, confusion, or pain and suffering, therapy can profoundly enrich your life. The more we befriend, understand, and accept ourselves just as we are, the more we can respond to the challenges that come our way from choice rather than habitual reaction. To facilitate this I offer an openhearted, authentic presence along with mindfulness-based tools that promote self-awareness, self-compassion, and the process of healing."
