I’m passionate about working with chronically ill adults and adults in their 20s-30s having difficulty navigating the many challenges of adulthood. If that’s you—hello there! You’ll want to know what therapy with me would be like. Put simply, my approach emphasizes noticing. It sounds easy, but many of us are ‘programmed’ not to notice what we're feeling or what beliefs we’re operating from. It actually takes quite a lot of courage & curiosity to notice. Together, we notice whatever is there. Often this means starting with the parts of us programmed not to: What's scary about noticing? How did they come to believe what they believe?
We often find the answers back in childhood. Over time, through lots of practice noticing, we get to know all the different parts of you. The result is more harmony within: feeling more whole. Once we’re free to notice ourselves without fear of finding thoughts or feelings we don’t want to find, we can experience ease. We can regulate emotions—even big ones.
We can enjoy a healthier relationship to ourselves & others, experiencing connection instead of disconnection. We get there by cultivating an attitude of acceptance & welcoming toward all parts: There are no bad parts of you. If you feel I may be a good fit for you, I invite you to explore my website & book a free phone consultation to get the ball rolling.

My approach aims to help you get to the root of the symptoms or challenges you're having so you can experience transformative, lasting benefits from therapy. Different from solutions-focused or brief therapy (which focuses on problem-solving, recommends new coping skills, and lasts 2-4 months), my clients describe the work as "going deep" and typically stay in therapy for a year or more.
