Perhaps you are searching here because something feels broken in your life: relationships are disconnected, a story haunts you from the past, or emotions are overwhelming. Perhaps you are running from some hidden grief or rejection, and you feel restless or wounded as a result. I can help. You are not alone, and you don't have to stay stuck. Through sessions together you will learn compassion for yourself, which empowers healthier relationships."

I work best with clients interested in understanding why certain patterns have emerged in their lives. Sometimes our thoughts and feelings pile on top of each other.

"Often the very ways we learn to cope with fear, sadness, or wounding in our relationships may inadvertently move us further from the closeness and connection we seek. Sometimes, this manifests in our lives as depression or anxiety. Other times, it shows up in our relationships themselves, through patterns of attraction to individuals who are more likely to cause pain, or through cycles of conflict, loneliness, misunderstanding, and a fear of closeness or abandonment. Psychotherapy provides a safe context in which we can begin to understand these issues and, over time, experience a deep sense of healing. "
