"I am not currently accepting new clients. I work with people who may feel sad, disconnected, lonely, anxious, or have problems with their relationships. I believe we all posses the wisdom and resilience needed to respond to this complex world with humor and balance. In our sessions together we will address the issues and experiences that tax that resilience. These may be things that are showing up as depression, anxiety, overwhelm, or just being stuck in patterns and relationships that are making you unhappy."

"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."
