Sometimes we need extra help when facing particularly painful, overwhelming, or puzzling situations. By setting aside a dedicated time and place in which to bring your full attention (and mine) to the task of sorting out what pains or blocks you, you give yourself the best opportunity to craft the life you wish to live. In the company of a skilled practitioner, the process of therapy can help you work through old patterns and address the challenges at hand. You can experience a greater sense of meaning, purpose, and peace in your life and in your relationships.

A fully expressed life emerges when we connect with our innate resilience and become who we are meant to be. We have more energy, feel inspired, connect more deeply, and experience the natural ebb and flow of life with greater ease. Whether you have done psychotherapy before, or are brand new, I am here to help. I offer a beautiful, unique approach to healing, one that brings together teachings from Western psychology and Eastern wisdom traditions. Complete healing comes from mindful awareness of the whole self, and working from a place of embodied connection with our true, genuine essence.

Are old relationship patterns, experiences of trauma and neglect, or stuck ways of thinking interfering with your ability to step more fully into your life? Therapy can and should go beyond achieving a reduction in distress. In my work I aspire to facilitate development of a deeper connection with inner strength, vision, passion and conviction while addressing your issues of concern.

My priorities as we begin our healing relationship together are to ensure a sense of safety for you in the therapy process, as well as a sense of collaborativity. I take an integrative approach to healing, drawing on the following disciplines and treatment modalities: mindfulness practices, archetypal psychology, art therapy, play therapy, multiple somatic modalities, and nutritional psychology.

As I see it, the primary role of a counselor is to serve as a mirror to help reveal what the client hasn't yet been able to see-especially those patterns of relating to self, others, and the environment that might be causing suffering. At the same time, the counselor is there to reflect, affirm, and strengthen the client's unique gifts and talents.One of the biggest impediments to healing, growth, and creativity is shame. To help clients move through this debilitating emotion, I use a combination of mindfulness, body awareness, and other healing modalities.

Why go to therapy or pursue inner work? It's a great question because the act of creating a weekly ritual to reflect on yourself is actually a subversive thing to do. Something you discover may reorient your life. Maybe what you originally thought was a problem is more precisely a sign relaying information that could help you love more deeply, live more freely, and be less (and amazingly more) like everyone else. I welcome individuals who have experienced trauma, a difficult relationship to their body, high sensitivity, intuitive abilities, and/or an unwieldy mind. I specialize in supporting new and seasoned spiritual practitioners.
