Even the best relationships have their challenges. No matter how much we love our partners and family members, we can’t always expect them to know what we need. I can help you improve communication and increase positive interactions in these relationships using a range of culturally-sensitive and evidence-based techniques. I can also work with you on an individual level to teach you coping skills for mental illness, improve your self-esteem, and help you find better ways to work through life’s challenges.

With 36 years as a therapist I can say that my passion and joy is sitting with couples and individuals who are wanting more meaning and depth in their relationships. Spirit leads the way in my work. Watching couples light up when they really understand how to "be present with curiosity in listening to their partner" adds spark to my day. Knowing that they are beginning to get the tools for change that "grows inner confidence" is what brings richness to my work and hope for them.

I know you. You can put on a happy face and convince the world that everything is just fine, but behind your smile is a belief that you are not good enough. You know how to stay hidden in plain sight without exposing your authentic self. The downside? It’s exhausting. You are constantly fighting with yourself, wondering if what you said was “weird” or "too much", believing that other people are judging you as harshly as you judge yourself. You’ve come to believe that you are somehow deficient or unworthy, which pushes you to either over achieve or hide away.

In my therapeutic practice I seek to motivate clients to build the brain they want rather than feeling stuck with the one they have. By harnessing the power of cognitive restructuring, we can excel at tackling complex issues like dealing with stress, managing emotions, changing habits, controlling impulses and navigating complicated relationships in the same way that we would get better at any other skill; through dedication and practice! I use Dialectical Behavior Therapy techniques and skills to help clients set and achieve their own therapeutic goals and try to instil a sense of hopefulness and resolve in every session.
