I have a contemplative and humanistic approach to therapy that stresses the inherent value and worth of every person. How we come to understand our sense of self worth can be elaborated with sociological, anthropological, and various academic lenses, but at the end of the day, your experience of your life is what I am interested in.

"Wellness is having a healthy balance of our mind, body, and spirit. When it’s disconnected, you may feel unmotivated, empty, or dissatisfied with life or relationships. It causes negative thoughts that contribute to feeling depressed or anxious. Exhaustion is another sign of imbalances due to giving too much of your energy to others or feeling like there is not enough time to care for yourself. This results in difficulty in saying “no” to others requests or self-judgement of not being enough. Life may feel or seem to get busier, creating challenges that get in the way of achieving your goals. "

""The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes." Marcel Proust I believe that finding new ways to look at and think about ourselves, our lives and the world is an integral part of the therapeutic process. Often the concerns which bring us into therapy reflect our attempts to adapt to and deal with the painful challenges and transitions of life. Building awareness of our characteristic ways of being in the world results in the freedom to choose a new way to be. I enjoy working with children, adolescents, adults and families."
