I work with a range of issues including depression, anxiety, trauma, PTSD, abuse, codependency and relationship issues. I have a special interest in "complex" trauma, when traumatic events occur with other marginalizations, e.g., being a member of a sexual or ethnic minority. I do not pathologize anyone's issues or problems. The soul is always seeking expression, not just with joy and happiness, but also through our challenges and sorrows. When we honor all aspects of our life stories, pathways to healing begin to open up.

I use different approaches that best suit each individual person and situation, including CBT, mindfulness, visualizations, mind-body and trauma-informed therapies. However, ultimately, the best technique is often a safe and trusting therapeutic relationship. So I take great care in cultivating a deep level of safety and trust.

It's not easy to make changes in one's life. I have great respect for therapy clients who choose to do this sometimes challenging yet, ultimately rewarding, work. No matter who you decide to work with, I wish all of you great success and happiness in your healing journeys! ( *** Please note that the sliding scale slots are currently full.)
