¶..You'll tap your strengths and enjoy them. We'll marvel at how the brain creates one adaptive "I" after another (side by side now, taking turns in one healthy person). We'll respect how they once protected you, and relax the outdated ones that tie you up. ¶..We can use the ways you're ready for change, so it feels natural. I see adults & elders delighted by fresh thinking, with new relief from false alarm.

The decision to work on oneself is not something I take lightly. Healing is a sacred path, but not easy. I welcome clients as they are and hope to become while offering a warm and peaceful presence that is active yet non-invasive. My clients are as diverse as the issues and different parts of themselves that emerge. Symptomatic states of being tell a story of a unique legacy of neurobiolgical and attachment wiring. Developing safety, mindful awareness, and self-compassion, I help my clients find meaning, hope, and the freedom to become who they were meant to be.

The basis of my practice is a commitment to meet each client in their own unique embodiment, style, and rhythm. The elements of each therapy will vary on the basis of my client's history and my ability to join them in their wish for understanding and change. I attempt to establish a productive therapeutic relationship within the first 5-10 sessions and make myself useful as quickly as possible. I am committed to my clients wellbeing and development, supportive to them as people, and challenging in the directions where the client seeks a transition.

Every person has many sides to their personality. Often these different sides are in conflict with one another and cause pain, anxiety and/or depression. When we find ourselves caught in repeated conflict in relationships, or we behave in ways that feel uncharacteristic, we often are in conflict with an aspect of ourself that is unknown or unconscious to us.The goal of psychoanalysis and psychotherapy is to help the unconscious self become conscious. When we begin to know ourselves better we can often make better choices and develop better tools to deal with the conflicts and stress that life brings us.

With great courage and a sense of curiosity, you’ve already taken the hardest step towards feeling better—reaching out for help. Maybe you’ve been feeling "stuck" or overwhelmed? Perhaps you and your significant other find it difficult to communicate each other's feelings and needs. Or maybe you're trying to make sense of a life experience and don’t know where to start. I would like to reassure you, you don’t have to endure the pain or confusion alone. We, as humans, have all experienced moment(s) in life where we feel disconnected from our true selves and even our loved ones. Sometimes we just need some support along the way.

If your life had a resumé, “chameleon” would be at the top. You’re so good at figuring out others’ needs, they’d never suspect that you have them too. If you were honest with yourself, though, you’d admit how stressful it is to live for other people. You’re terrified you’ll lose relationships if you speak up or say no. Your energy is drained or you feel resentful. You’re exhausted from wondering if others like you or approve of you. If you make choices that disappoint others, you feel guilty and selfish. Your whole identity is about pleasing others, & you want to feel comfortable being your authentic self, but you have no idea how.

Entering therapy is one way to work toward deeper engagement in life. It's nature to lose our way from time to time. Doubt, inequity, and betrayal is an unavoidable part of the human experience. To cope with adversity, we often develop survival patterns that serve as a buffer from experiencing life and loss. We may become distant, mistrustful, or overly please others. Through our work together, my role is to help you to come into greater contact with your core self and to gain a deeper understanding of your needs as you work toward living a more meaningful life.

Are you feeling depressed, anxious, struggling with relationship conflict or substances? Sometimes, the very strategies we use to feel safe, to belong, to get approval, and to feel loved – to survive – no longer serve us. When we try to carry these strategies into adulthood, it can lead to high conflict, challenging behaviors, anxiety, depression, and substance use. For couples and families, I work from an Emotion Focused Therapy approach exploring clients' reactivity, triggers, and hurts that underlie conflict and helping them find other ways to respond that lead to more trust, intimacy and connectedness.
