Intimacy, creativity, and feelings are essential aspects of nourishment when we are experiencing troubling times in our lives. The symptoms we experience such as depression, anxiety, or relationship challenges are often directing our attention to deeper meaning and understanding of ourselves. In my work with individuals and couples, we are often engaged in relationship and intimacy concerns and exploring ways to heal and experience self-love and self-trust. We all have survival, coping, and healing abilities that can help us grow and thrive under many circumstances. Sometimes assistance is needed to help these abilities develop.

As a depth-oriented therapist, my approach is a collaborative, related style. I use this style with individuals, couples, and groups. I also utilize current cutting edge research such as Gottman method and Brene Brown's Daring Way, and I take a Jungian approach to dreams, unconscious content, and creativity.

Sessions include bridging the outer part of yourself (that which we normally associate ourselves with) with the inner part of yourself (the more intuitive and spiritual part of our being). To set up a 30-minute consultation free of charge please contact me by phone, email, or on my website.
