"I believe for change to occur, a client must feel accepted and respected above all else. My goal is to help my clients feel comfortable by using a down to earth communication style with very little psychological jargon. I use mostly Cognitive-Behavioral techniques, but am happy to tailor my approach to fit your personal needs. I realize starting therapy is often intimidating, therefore I am happy to discuss your concerns free of charge prior to setting up the initial appointment."

"Therapy can help us know ourselves in a different way than we have before. I will work with you to feel your way towards understanding yourself and how you might be struggling. I am curious and kind, engaged and receptive, striving towards greater recognition of what and how you experience yourself. I firmly believe in this work and provide an atmosphere where you can feel safe and supported. Over time we can discover together how your creativity, courage, and hope can be strengthened; this work can bring grace (and a lot less stress!) to how you relate to the world and others around you."

"If you are ready to find ways to be your truest self, move through your grief, anxiety, trauma or depressive symptoms either long held or recent, I may be a good fit for you. As a former Naprapath, now therapist, my understanding of the connection between the mind and body has proved powerful to clients trying to understand the inner relationship between these two parts of ourselves. I often hear words like, 'stuck,' 'numb,' 'confused,' 'alone,' 'outsider.' Trying to put words to what ones experience is can be daunting at best. Giving voice to experiences is transforming."

"Deciding to work with a therapist is a big step, often accompanied by feelings of uncertainty about what to expect. The process of therapy can take many directions, but always starts with a conversation. To begin, I'll ask questions and listen carefully as you tell me about yourself. Together, we can begin to understand how things are, how they got to be that way, how you've been managing, and in what ways you'd like things to be different. Once I have a sense of who you are and what you want, I will be a committed and caring collaborator on your journey."
