""Whoever you are, no matter how lonely, the world offers itself to your imagination...." In Wild Geese, Mary Oliver does not promise salvation, but points to the okay-ness of your being, to the importance of your inner world. How do you, in your imagination, relate to the world? You can find peace inside yourself. I believe therapy is about wholeness-it's not about rejecting who you already are, but about including all aspects of yourself. With compassion and honesty, let's explore the full you so that you may find your inner peace."

"I want to assist you in examining why you feel like your life is not where you think or sense it should be. Why you have a nagging feeling that perhaps you're wasting time and not living your life in a more deep and fulfilling manner. You may think you're “not good enough,” or “if only this would have/not have happened," life would be different. The activities you do feel banal, going to work/school is dreadful, relationships and family are difficult, and the values and beliefs that once held you have lost their ground. You feel lonely, depressed, anxious, and perhaps substance use is worsening. You’re wondering about doing therapy."

"Welcome to my page. I offer a free 30 minute initial consultation to help determine comfort level and fit. I am not a psychologist who specializes in everything, but do have extensive experience working in some areas. These include adult ADHD, trauma (PTSD), transitional aged youth (18-24), bipolar spectrum disorders, marital/relational therapy and the more common disorders (major depression, anxiety). My approach aims to provide at least some immediate symptom relief and is practical. However, many situations cannot be so quickly resolved, therefore I am also attentive to unconscious processes, relational patterns and family-of-origin issues."

"I enjoy working with clients who want more than traditional "talk" therapy. I understand you might feel like just talking about your life cannot change your experience of it. You may be asking how can therapy make a difference? My approach is informed by the practice of mindfulness - the non-judgmental observation of the present moment. Research has shown mindfulness to be a highly effective treatment for depression, anxiety, and addiction. How is working in mindfulness different? In mindfulness we learn how to shift our emotional state from one of suffering to more empowered states of aliveness."

"We live in a culture that tells us the type of person we need to be. Sometimes these messages start at home as children, but often continue as we grow up. It can be hard to clear away what we've been told and internalized from our own true nature and who we are destined to become. Parts of us have been left behind; authentic selves concealed but not forgotten. I help people to find their voice and claim it as their own.
