"My approach to therapy is based on mindfulness and self-compassion. Mindfulness teaches us how to be present and self-compassion teaches how to be a friend and ally to ourselves no matter what. I offer a warm and safe relationship, good old fashioned listening, and skills to improve effective communication, managing and learning from emotions, self-acceptance, compassion, and connecting with and living your values. Mindfulness-based therapy is practical, evidence-based, and it works. You don't have to be stuck, overwhelmed, or feel disconnected from your life. You can make positive changes, heal, grow, and thrive."

"Many of us internalize messages from society about how our lives are supposed to look and when our circumstances don't measure up, we experience a lot of guilt and shame. Often times we fail to recognize the inherent wisdom and problem-solving skills we hold inside ourselves; I can help to revive them. I understand the courage and vulnerability it takes to enter a therapy room with strong feelings of anxiety, uncertainty, or isolation. My style is warm, empowering, and collaborative; I offer a safe, non-judgmental space welcoming clients to explore and be their authentic selves."

"You will know you are living an authentic and empowered life when you are mostly happy. This does not mean life won't have challenges, but your ability to navigate them will be easier. Finding a therapist with whom you can share all of yourself - grief, disappointment, shame, anger, anxiety, etc is essential to healing. Trust takes time to build and confidentiality and a non-judgmental environment focused on your goals for therapy will help you get there. Art therapy can be a way to express what is inside, as well as be a tool for healing. I work with teens, adults, and families."

"For most people, strong relationships are an important indicator of health and well-being. When we feel stuck in old patterns that no longer serve us, our connection to others suffers too, which can turn up as depression, anxiety, or simply feeling alone and disconnected. By reconnecting with our essential gifts and strengths through the therapy process, we in turn can offer more to family, friends, and community. I enjoy working collaboratively with clients and view them as the experts on their own experiences, and I understand therapy as a journey to the revelation of the authentic self at the heart of every person."

"Often we seek out counseling when we're not feeling like ourselves, we feel out of control, we struggle to manage life's changes, or we feel dissatisfied with our life's direction. Sometimes we just feel stuck. Regardless of the reason, we naturally question change but can be unsure of the process. I provide a collaborative space to define that process and connect the person you see yourself as to the person you aspire to be. As a therapist and musician, my eclectic style and strategies are focused on building self-respect, healthy boundaries, insight, confidence, and self-compassion."

Therapy can be a helpful place to explore the places in our lives where we do have agency, where we are able to make tangible changes-often times this is in our interpersonal relationships.

I seek to empower my clients, through deepened self-awareness, to explore what may be missing in their lives, identify impediments to obtaining those needs, and experiment with how those needs could be realized. Ultimately, I seek to create an environment where clients can foster a greater sense of purpose and meaning in their lives, and open up new channels of energy and creativity to meet the demands of their lives."

I also do long-term insight-oriented work; identifying patterns of feelings, thoughts, and behaviors which reflect unconscious conflict and create barriers in relationships with oneself and others. Symptoms of anxiety and depression are often what prompt people to enter therapy.
