About

A good therapist helps us get to know ourselves fully. Better understanding our motivations, thoughts and feelings reveals more fulfilling, effective choices. Exploring what is getting in our way of having deeply satisfying relationships is essential to living a full life. I often address issues of: understanding a partner's motivations, life purpose & transition, transparent vulnerable & authentic communication, finding/creating fulfilling relationship, confidence & leadership, men in relationship, trauma, and integrating presence in daily living.
A truly holistic therapist uses a multi-faceted approach. Mine uses mindfulness (noticing moment-to-moment experience), somatic (body-based) awareness, existential philosophy, and an understanding of the physiological effects on neurological well-being.
My style is warm and direct. I am frank with my perspective but supportive. I value openness and transparency in my personal relationships and believe it's reasonable for you to expect this from a therapist. Confronting what is difficult or uncertain is easier when you can get to know your therapist.
