"Therapy is a journey traveled with a guide, witness, and companion. Over 30+ years I have accompanied individuals, couples, adult children and their parents as they seek to solve problems, cope with transitions, create more satisfying relationships, improve self-esteem or heal from deep and traumatic hurts and losses. I am active, warm and collaborative, and work to create a safe and empowering relationship for exploring wishes and fears, strengths, goals and the obstacles that we encounter in meeting life's challenges. Clients tell me that I am a careful and accurate listener and have a calming, supportive presence."

""Once we recognize what it is we are feeling, once we recognize we can feel deeply, love deeply, can feel joy, then we will demand that all parts of our lives produce that kind of joy." - Audre Lorde. I believe that through establishing a deep and self-affirming connection with ourselves through radical self-acceptance, self-understanding and self-compassion, we can be more equipped to boldly meet the challenges we face on both an individual and societal/cultural level. I believe that through seeking to heal and love ourselves we effectively simultaneously work towards creating more healing and love in our world. "
