Therapy is your journey. If you invite me to walk along beside you, I will offer to you my best critical thinking, understanding, compassion and theoretical knowledge based on 20 years of working in this field. I am adept at pointing out signposts, synchronicities, other paths and directions that you may not have noticed along the way. Sometimes we need another set of eyes to tell us when we are just about to step in something gooey and stinky. And other times we need help getting it off the bottoms of our shoes so that we can continue onward.

Mindfulness, gratitude, compassion, and acceptance are the foundation of my therapeutic practice. Mindfulness strengthens the part of you that observes yourself. As the muscle of this observing, compassionate aspect begins to strengthen, we become more adept at being at the helm versus being at the whim of our impulses, old habits, and unconscious motivations.

The art of therapy is knowing when to listen quietly and compassionately, when to offer up practical advise and tools, and when to bring up an unconscious dynamic that is influencing your direction. After 20 years of studying and practicing this art, I feel I can offer you this subtle yet profoundly important expertise.
