You may be the person loved ones turn to for support, advice, and care. You may be especially good at anticipating what others need and want, but somehow your own feelings end up taking a back seat. Or maybe you're not even sure how you feel, or what you actually want. Whether you are hoping to resolve a painful problem or symptom, or feeling stuck or dissatisfied, my goal is to help you create lasting change. People tell me that therapy allows them to feel calmer, more creative, and able to enjoy more fulfilling relationships and careers. Others describe feeling awake and alive, with a more vibrant sense of self.

My clinical approach prioritizes starting where we are, moving step-by-step, and being present and open to whatever arises. Walking is an indigenous mode of travel that supports direct experience and harmony with the natural world. Walking is an antidote to the fast-paced, high-pressure, competitive culture of dominant Western societies. Talking the walk refers to integrity, which is what happens when what we believe, what we say, and what we do are aligned. Other core values of my practice include creativity, compassion, and liberation.

I believe the therapeutic relationship is the key to unlocking the door, no matter what issues lie behind that door. Without a strong foundation of trust, respect, and communication--the 3 pillars upon which any relationship is built--progress cannot be made. This is where we begin. My clients view me as empathic, empowering, and trustworthy--ideals I foster through open communication. I have a unique ability to meet people where they are so that I am able to guide them on their journey toward wellness. My goal is to help you move through your problems toward effective solutions.

Change, life transitions and loss can be difficult. Life can often become overwhelming or easy to feel “stuck.” Have you tried traditional “talk therapy” before and found that it did not work for you? I use my trainings to integrate evidence-based and holistic techniques that incorporate Mindfulness, somatic interventions and Cognitive Behavior Therapy to help you recognize your unique strengths, values and abilities to help you achieve your goals and create lasting, meaningful relationships.

Research consistently places the quality of the relationship between a therapist and client/patient as the biggest predictor of positive outcome in therapy. Carl Rogers defines a helping relationship as "]one in which at least one of the parties has the intent of promoting the growth, development, maturity, improved functioning, and improved coping with life of the other." What are the characteristics of those relationships that do help facilitate growth and those that don't?

Does any of this resonate with you? You feel anxious, depressed, or up and down with your emotions. You are going through a life transition trying to figure out the feelings that come along with it. You’ve been told you are “too sensitive.” Maybe you are struggling with your sexual identity or sexual orientation and would like a nonjudgmental space where you can explore LGBTQ-related issues. You have struggled with anxiety and/or depression for a while and have tried different things but it’s not helping.
