"Most of us lug around a suitcase full of our thoughts, feelings, family history and past experiences and have no idea what's in there. Our current responses to and experience of life come from the contents of that suitcase. Together in therapy we gently unpack it. We will see what is working for you, what needs more support and what has served it's purpose but no longer works. I work collaboratively and am curious about all the things that make you who you are. I am particularly interested in working with people who feel misunderstood or unimportant."

"You are finding yourself unsatisfied with your life. There are emotions, behaviors, and patterns in your life that you are looking to move past and change, and maybe your entire life feels very off from where you would like it to be. Perhaps you know what specifically needs to change, or you need help looking for where to start on the journey of self inquiry and growth. You need a space where you can speak your mind to a neutral third party, a compassionate ear to hear your story, and a plan to move towards your goals in life. The healing process begins right now once you have decided to start looking for help. "

"No matter what age or developmental phase of life we are in, it can be so easy to become trapped in ideas of who we should be or how we should be by looking to external comparisons. In therapy, I offer myself as an ally and guide to help you discover the version of yourself that brings you the most internal joy and satisfaction.

"My approach as a psychotherapist is to meet my clients where they are, honoring their unique life experience, offering strategies and responses that address their specific needs. Effective therapy works on the impacts of trauma, privilege, and oppression, addressing suffering at the psycho-emotional as well as socio-political-ecological levels. Together we explore your individual mind-heart-body experience in the context of our collective interdependent cultural situation. I understand psychotherapy as a collaborative endeavor. I practice listening deeply, with curiosity and respect, to support my clients’ innate capacity for self-awareness, growth, and well-being. Effective therapy requires authentic contact between therapist and client.  As the therapeutic relationship unfolds it can become a catalyst for healing and transformation. I am a fellow traveler, working on my own growth and transformation, while in service to my clients. "

"Many of us enter adulthood with beliefs about love influenced by Hollywood depictions of romance. If we're fortunate, we've had more nuanced and realistic models, examples from adults who've shown us what it means to commit to another person and what love through a real lens looks like up close. The luckiest of us we saw the deepening and mellowing of love over time, love between people who have weathered conflicts, learned from the challenges they faced and and grown together. If so, we are likely to reach our adult years understanding what loves both asks of us and offers in reward. "

"I believe relationships are the foundation of our emotional experience--this includes both the relationship we have with ourselves and the relationships we have with others. Often, feeling disconnected from our self can cause us to feel disconnected in other areas of life, such as our career, family, friends, or hobbies. I believe healing occurs when we increase our understanding of ourselves and our relationships, and use that awareness to cultivate new experiences. In my practice, I can help you learn about yourself and support you in stepping outside your comfort zone to make the personal changes you want to see in your life."

"Welcome! I offer short-term and long-term models of psychotherapy for individual adults of all ages and walks of life. I work with a wide range of people who come to therapy for different reasons wether it be symptoms of mood dysregulation such as anxiety or depression, issues related childhood or adult trauma, relationship challenges, dealing with a chronic health condition, a major loss or life transition, or wether it is simply for personal growth and healing. Regardless of the reason that calls a person to seek therapeutic support, my over 15 years of clinical experience have taught me that the heart of the process that unfolds in psychotherapy can be boiled down to a few key principles that apply to most peoples journey of gaining a better degree of psychological wholeness and health. My integrative approach to psychotherapy draws from a number of different schools of thought in the field including classical psychoanalytic/psychodynamic theory, humanistic psychology, Jungian archetypal psychology, CBT/mindfulness based practices, and solution focused therapy.

"There are times in our life when we begin to feel sadness, anxiety, loss of meaning, or loss of joy. We feel this as an individual and in our relationships. Doctors are quick to hand out anti-depressants, but often this is not depression. Instead, I believe these feelings emerge as we struggle with the many challenges and changes we face in life, especially as we age. Life can be very difficult, the loss of friends and loved ones, transitions, illness, divorce, career changes, and more can lead to a loss of meaning or purpose. And this, in turn, can bring on sadness, anxiety, and a sense that we're disconnected from our lives."
