Individuals who worry that they are "too much" for a therapist often find me to be a good fit. I see adults, teens, couples and poly groups. I have led grief groups for those who have lost a loved one to suicide. I have specialized in young adults and late teens for nearly two decades. Often therapists are not aware of the specific developmental needs of young adults and so there is a high drop out rate for YA in therapy settings. Many of my clients are creative, questioning, and active in multiple diverse communities. They tend to want a therapist who is active, engaging, and collaborative with the therapy process.

Whether or not they say it, most of the people that I see want to live a life that is worth living. They want to feel empowered-- to be active participants in their lives. You may feel a void, emptiness, and that something is missing. Often people feel stuck in their lives because they have lost connection with a vital part of themselves and with their hopes and desires. This vitality is the source of our imagination and creativity. This internal source and "knowing" of what we need and want becomes disconnected, covered over by past disappointments, losses and fears.
