Utilizing a trauma informed approach, I work to build a safe therapeutic relationship with you, in order to address the underlying question of "What happened to you?," rather than "What's wrong with you?" Understanding that depression, anxiety and other mental health challenges stem from complex and myriad issues, including our family of origin, and the impact of adverse life experiences, I encourage you to guide the therapeutic process. My goal is to assist you to utilize life's adversities to discover and cultivate your inner strength and resilience, in service of your lifelong journey of growth and healing.

Stress and trauma can take many forms. Sometimes we survive an event such as a car accident, wildfire, assault, or military-related event. Or we may notice chronic struggles with trusting others and ourselves, and feeling stressed and unsatisfied in our relationships. The experience of trauma can significantly impact how we change or grow in each present moment, how we connect and separate from others, and how we experiment, take risks, and resource our creativity. Let's co-create a therapy relationship that works to support the development of loving relationships with self and others.

A satisfactory relationship to one's self is the most significant element in finding a way through life's challenges. Sometimes this pathway feels chaotic, confused, conflicted, or just not strong enough. Sometimes life experiences overwhelm our capacities to contain and reflect on their meaning for us in a way that keeps us from our potential as persons, as partners, or as an employee/job holder. Therapy offers an opportunity to listen to yourself in an uniquely individual, finely-tuned, non-judgmental way. Fears, sadnesses, and blocked places may all find they have something important to reveal to us when explored in a therapeutic relationship.

Why do therapy? Why embark on a relationship with someone you don't know, to talk about difficulties or challenges in your life? Sometimes, when we tell family or friends how we are feeling, they react personally or try to explain away our experiences rather than make room for them. I believe that a relationship with a therapist is one in which significant change can take place. The neutral environment of therapy provides space to explore our experiences without worrying about angering, hurting, or upsetting someone else.
