I see individuals as capable of living a full and joyful life. I am here to facilitate the removal of those blocks, caused by past traumas, and / or difficult life transitions, that might be getting in your way. As we work together from a compassionate, strength-based perspective to remove the negative blocks (emotional and mental pain) from your path, life becomes easier and more joyful. As you heal mentally, emotionally and physically you will begin to attract those experiences and relationships into your life that are healthy, more fulfilling & enriching. My master's degree in Counselor Education has prepared me for this work.

You have been putting off therapy for months, but the stress and worry is getting to be too much. You've spent years holding it together, with so many people counting on you at work and home. It’s exhausting feeling like you can never relax, be real, and let yourself be cared for. You’re an accomplished leader and professional, and as far as anyone can tell, handling high responsibility and high visibility roles well. You thought when you accomplished your goals, all would be well, but you still never feel good enough. You're tired of giving so much and appearing to succeed while privately struggling. It's time for a change.

What change would you like to see in your life? I would like to see you make that change. Individual therapy takes an expert and a consultant. The client is the expert on their own person and life experiences, and the counselor is the consultant who is hired to help identify and problem solve that expert's barriers to success. I specialize in helping people gain emotional stability, a strong sense of identity, and the self-confidence they need to make changes in their lives that they want to make.

Accompaniment matters. Relationships transform. We sit together to access the health that is at the center of every human being, even when one of us can’t feel it. We sit because healing happens in relationship, access to true self is made easier in the presence of another person’s settled nervous system, and because your healing matters for the health of all of us. Whether you are facing overwhelm, anger, a frozen feeling, compulsions, depression, trauma, anxiety, or facing other difficult experience, we can touch it with awareness and respect. Our experience includes joy, includes pain, and includes connection and compassion.

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 not currently accepting new clients.***I believe that therapy is a collaboration. As a therapist my first step is to help clarify why therapy is sought. From there we work together to develop strategies for relief, in the short and long term. My role is to provide information about the treatments that could be pursued; with information and context, one can then make informed choices about the best path forward. Common treatment options include: Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Mindfulness interventions. A brief treatment is usually all that is needed, but I offer longer-term depth work when required.
