"My focus is on assisting those clients with issues they need greater support on; chronic illness, chronic pain and high sensitivity. The misunderstood nature of health issues such as fibromyalgia, endometriosis and headaches, can lead to disruption in client's lives and relationships. Therapeutic goals may be to improve coping and acceptance. Highly Sensitive Persons (HSP) are also clients who need support. HSPs experience the world with a heightened perspective, often finding interactions and sensory stimulation difficult. Navigating such a world often requires more support and validation, which psychotherapy can provide. "

Over the last decade, I've helped clients who feel worried or down, or who have difficulty advocating for themselves, to shift the underlying patterns that contribute to their distress and mobilize the often unacknowledged strengths that lie within them. In my practice, I work with people coping with anxiety, depression, codependency, relationship challenges (such as divorce), low self-esteem, career change, and spiritual emergence. I approach every client with appreciation and respect for the whole person - mind, heart, body and spirit - and tailor my approach to the unique needs of each client."

Living with stigma - related to a mind that works differently, a body that's unruly or "too much," or a sexuality that doesn't fit behind a white picket fence - asks us to be creative and fierce. The wisdom that can grow here is astounding. But the burden of stigma is heavy, and sometimes it twists and catches us in painful positions.
