"As a person originally trained in psychodynamics, I care greatly about the experiences and relationships that have shaped you. I am currently perusing more training in Jungian/depth psychology, which means I am greatly interested in the unconscious and how it reveals itself through dreams, spontaneous visions and creative endeavors. Of primary focus, in my work with clients, is the therapeutic relationship. It is here that our patterns of relating often reveal themselves. Through the safe container of therapy, I invite my clients into new ways of being that invite more creativity, flexibility and deeper relationships."

We will work together to create a relationship that feels safe enough to address your concerns. In addition to my private psychotherapy practice I have provided trauma informed therapy to individuals and families in various community based, non-profit agencies, in addition to Clinical Supervision."

"It's a big decision to make some changes in your life. Therapy can be a support. An effective therapy is a space where your experiences can be discussed with authenticity and candor, and you feel support and understanding in this process. My approach is thoughtful, kind, collaborative and curious. I work relationally and psychodynamically, meaning that we will give some careful consideration to how past experiences may be in present-day obstacles. Through this process, connections are made that may facilitate a deeper understanding of you, your relationships, and importantly, offer some relief from punishing patterns."

Often this becomes evident while undergoing a major life transition such as a break up, divorce, the death of a loved one, or a career change. These low points can be scary and painful, but they can also be incredible opportunities for growth and healing. But growing is hard work and sometimes we can't do it on our own."

Unprocessed traumatic memories can get “stuck” in the body’s nervous system, and can influence how we live our lives in the present.
