About

Seeking therapy can feel daunting. Even when we know something has to change, it can feel more comfortable to stick with old habits. Clients are often surprised to hear me say - we keep "bad" habits for good reasons. We develop predictable patterns to feel safe when we lack outside supports to help us feel grounded, connected, accomplished, or hopeful. I support clients to increase their awareness of their own patterns, perceptions, reactions, learned behaviors, and true desires, so they have more choice in how they respond to people and situations and can take steps to build better relationships and more fulfilling lives.
Talk therapy doesn't always work. Even if we can identify our most problematic patterns, it's not easy to change them. We work in sessions to understand and unlock persistent and challenging behaviors that may be deeply lodged in the nervous system. I may use EMDR, Brainspotting, and other process-focused methods to help clients unravel entrenched patterns.
My approach is informed by Relational Gestalt therapy and other social and developmental theories to help identify the complex factors that influence your thoughts, emotions and behaviors. We consider your past, yet focus on how old patterns influence you in the present. My practice is LGBTQIA affirmative. Clients from all backgrounds are welcome.
