About

Is something in your life not working? Are you struggling with depression, anxiety, chronic pain? Are you stuck in a relationship that does not work or a job you don't like? I believe that therapy is a journey. I am here as your guide first in identifying what is keeping you stuck and then providing you the tools to move on. In so many ways we define who we are by our stories. And why not? They do contribute to who we are but often we can get so attached to them we can't move foward.
Acknowledging our stories can be powerfully healing but getting stuck in them can be crippling. We can become powerful victims often to a story we ourselves never wrote. I have never worked with anyone who did not have their own natural wisdom. I will focus on helping you connect with it!
As your therapist I will offer you skills to help experience your mind and body in the present moment without projecting into the future or sinking back into the past. I will join you in finding a new relationship to your pain in order to become more self accepting and compassionate.
