About

I work with people who struggle with mood disorders. Often when people struggle with their relationships and experiences, or have been diagnosed with a mental health problem, a kind of fracture occurs between themselves and their real experience. Together we host the best expression of your authenticity--in spite of the labels that would diminish your unique experience. We discover meaning and make decisions about what you want.
From within the framework of our relationship, we explore the present, reconnecting with desires and intuitions, finding the tolerance for everyday life as well as new responses to it. There is a unique future waiting to be expressed and together we can discover it.
I believe that a life lived deeply and authentically involves struggle. The current model of mental health pathologizes these struggles and offers medication in lieu of meaning. I believe effective therapy makes a person less afraid of being in the world and being themselves.
