***Unfortunately at this time my practice is full and I am not accepting new clients.*** We all have inner narratives about ourselves, our worthiness, other people, and life in general. These narratives are created by our experiences, families, communities, our biological makeup, and mainstream societal messages. Many of us carry around harmful beliefs about ourselves and the world around us that hold us back and keep us locked in cycles of suffering. We can challenge and change these destructive narratives to improve our lives and relationships.

It’s time to make a change. Every day, you serve other people, whether in your work life or home life. Helping people heal and grow is hugely important for you, but now it’s time to refocus on your own healing and growth too. You’ve been feeling unfulfilled, stressed out, and run down. You're losing sight of the deeper purpose for your life; a spiritual or creative drive that's going unfulfilled. Compassion fatigue is leaving you too drained to thrive. When you're joyful and healthy, you can serve the world more effectively. Self-care and emotional resilience are essential to good health.

I am doing Tele sessions only during Covid. As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, I consider you a whole being not just a collection of symptoms. My work with clients is based on a Buddhist perspective to psychology, meaning we explore the roots and causes of our suffering and work toward having a deeper, more empathetic understanding of ourselves. This ability to turn inward helps us make more freeing choices.

In my professional work (testing and therapy), I believe in meeting individuals where they are at in their lives. I believe most individuals seek testing or therapy when they have reached a point where they feel something needs to change (for therapy patients) or they want an answer (for testing patients). I also believe some individuals are not as certain and seek professional assistance for guidance and direction. I am happy to work with patients wherever they are at in their "stage of change."

My philosophy of therapy is that individuals heal through the relationship they develop with an experienced therapist in a warm, accepting environment. Life can be difficult and we all develop ways to help us cope. Often the ways that we learn to cope can do more damage than good, over time. In these instances, it’s important to learn new ways of managing oneself in tough times. Therapy can help you learn alternative ways of coping and taking good care of yourself. It can also help to change any distorted perceptions you may have developed of yourself through past, difficult experiences.

I always try to approach people with a deep appreciation for their complexity. Identified problems and symptoms are only part of the picture, and a more comprehensive view allows us to take full advantage of our strengths, as well as identify aspects of healthy living that are missing. When these tend to be in areas we're less comfortable with, gently exploring and working to improve our comfort level can be powerful tools toward lasting change. A strong therapeutic alliance can be an essential part of this effort.
