About

"Stuck." At some point in our lives, we all feel it. I help people link their desire for things to be different to the places they feel stuck, healthfully and effectively. You don't need to know how to change, we start with where you are. I like the Chinese proverb, "Acceptance and change are brothers, but acceptance is the older brother." By helping you learn to first accept where you are (even if now it seems impossible), suffering is naturally reduced and there is more energy and room for growth. You get to like yourself now AND change.
Though I work with a multitude of issues, I specialize in anxiety, relationship issues, substance abuse, and helping people find more skillful, kinder ways to relate to themselves. I utilize mindfulness as well as an approach to therapy called Internal Family Systems (IFS) to help people find more ease and choice in their internal world.
My approach to therapy is focused and spacious. Your time and money are valuable; I do my best to make the most of them. I regularly hone my skills through research and workshops. And, I like to laugh; it is helpful to have a sense of humor when navigating life's challenges.
