About

So many of us have trouble making decisions or deepening relationships, because we learned to connect with others needs above our own. While this was highly adaptive, and even necessary in the past, it can lead to a sense of disconnection and restlessness. Relationally this may manifest as disappointment or unexpressed conflict, due to an engrained pattern of avoidance. In this state, it is difficult to know what actions to take towards change. Reaching out for help, though imperative, can be just as challenging as continuing in the pain. This is what causes most of my clients to reach out.
I work with individuals and couples exploring both the past and present. Particular themes include fear and shame, with the underlying belief that I am not good enough. Techniques that are used include slowing things down (mindfulness) and exploring our relational patterns that express themselves in our thoughts and feelings (cognitive behavioral therapy).
I work through an interactive model where curiosity is the compass.  My work is grounded in the gift of transparency to allow you a place to inquire in order to ultimately be seen and heard.  My clients describe me as relatable, genuine, smart, and caring.  I look forward to connecting with you and assisting you in your journey.
