In a safe environment, using a 3 tiered depth approach, we uncover your soul's wisdom for healing and renewal."

"Are you tired of feeling the way you do? Are you willing to be where you are now? I believe this is what facilitates change-as strange as that may sound. Many of my clients are stuck in unhealthy patterns-internal conflict, relationship issues, trauma responses, or other challenges. These really are opportunities for growth. I strive to create a welcoming space and regard all of who you are and where you come from. My intention is that our work together will allow you more choice, freedom and focus."

"Sometimes we need extra help when facing particularly painful, overwhelming, or puzzling situations. By setting aside a dedicated time and place in which to bring your full attention (and mine) to the task of sorting out what pains or blocks you, you give yourself the best opportunity to craft the life you wish to live. In the company of a skilled practitioner, the process of therapy can help you work through old patterns and address the challenges at hand. You can experience a greater sense of meaning, purpose, and peace in your life and in your relationships."

"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."

"If I were to pick one theme that runs through my therapy work, it would have to be Empowerment. I believe completely in people's abilities to change their own lives. In whatever age, gender, sexuality, ethnicity, or culture we feel we belong to; we have the power to decide how to respond, perceive, define, believe, and present ourselves to others. I feel my role as a therapist is to ask questions, be curious and draw out the power of each person's own spiritual, emotional, and relational authority over their own lives."
