About

I help people turn toward more emotionally satisfying lives by providing a safe, non-judgmental, and compassionate atmosphere that facilitates growth. Do you feel as though you are merely surviving rather than fully living? We often live and act out scripts that are no longer satisfying or, even worse, inhibiting and destructive. I can guide you through a process of self discovery that deepens your capacity to face current challenges and enrich relationships. Whether you are struggling with anxiety, depression, life transitions, identity shifts, addiction, or family crisis, I believe the therapeutic process provides a rich landscape in which to heal.
I am convinced that awakening the imagination in the context of therapy helps people create a more authentic and multifaceted self image. The re-imagining of the self opens people to the possibilities inherent in the present moment rather than their clinging to defensive coping patterns that no longer serve them.
Our fast paced lifestyles and cultural values of high achievement are often not conducive to self understanding. I draw on my background as a former high school teacher and guidance counselor, to provide a springboard for clients to identify and access their hidden talents, untapped potential, and true desires.
