Sometimes we wait longer than we should- but when the mind is ready the help you need is available despite daunting beginnings. Is it the relationship with yourself or others, your career, some loss, a transition, or some still less clear discomfort? I will offer a safe place, free of external judgement so that you can feel your internal confusion lift and in the clearing of the rubble imagine a course in which to harness your inner essential strengths, express them fearlessly, and have them heard by those around you wherever you are.

People seek therapy when they are unhappy with how they are feeling or functioning. Sometimes you can identify the experiences connected to your suffering. Other times, the reasons for suffering are more elusive, but the associated symptoms (depression, anxiety, unfulfilling relationships, for example) are nevertheless extremely distressing. In both cases, talking to understand the deeper reasons for suffering can help. The self-awareness you discover this way is the most powerful tool to create a more fulfilling life. It can take time to build the trust required to talk and think in a freer way.

MY PRACTICE IS FULL AT THE MOMENT - NOT ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS. I believe that in order to make changes in our lives we need to start by looking at our relationship to ourselves, to the world and to people in it. Some of our patterns of relating were set in motion long before we had any awareness of or language for our emotions. In my practice I have found that a compassionate, respectful and mutually trusting approach can lead to meaningful change and ultimately a more authentic and fulfilling life.

I work with clients who are distressed or confused by why they engage in the behaviors they do, whether it's addiction, anger, illegal or anti-social behavior, or relationship difficulties and challenges. I believe this is because my stance is non-judgmental and I genuinely believe that all behavior is rational given past experience, even if it is not helpful or healthy in the present. I work to help clients navigate how these behaviors may have arisen, to develop self-compassion, and then to provide support and strategies to do the hard work of adopting new, more helpful behaviors.

Therapy is a space where you can better understand yourself so that you can heal and find a different and more meaningful way of being in the world. In the context of a safe and empathic therapeutic relationship, you are able to listen better to yourself, understand your emotional pain, and see the ways that it has impacted your life.
