"I enjoy working with individuals who experience fear, anxiety, obsessions and compulsions, trauma, and depression. With individuals, I primarily use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy with a strength-based, social justice perspective. This method helps us look at and work with the thoughts and emotions you hold about yourself, others and the world that get in the way of moving towards happiness and living the life you want. I am trained in EMDR and have used this approach with great success with clients experiencing PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), anxiety and many other issues."

"Crises and painful emotions can be the beginning of a journey toward transformation and wisdom. If you are looking for a deeper and more connected sense of yourself, and fulfillment in life, then you may be ready for a commitment to the therapeutic process. I believe my empathic presence - the capacity to hear, see and feel a situation from the other person's vantage point- is central to the healing process. Within such a safe relationship the patient can develop an open attitude toward the unconscious; exploration of the meaning and purpose of one's life can unfold."

"If you are considering therapy, I am glad you are here. I am a licensed psychotherapist in private practice. I believe that individuals possess the key to their own well being; however, sometimes life can present obstacles that are difficult to overcome. Most people come up against some sort of obstacle at least once in their lives. When this happens, it is helpful to have a professional ally to collaboratively look at these areas of concern. Teamwork is an important component in making therapy successful."

"Do you want more ease, joy, and meaning in your life? Therapy can help. Aside from having the obvious goal of relieving anxiety, confusion, or pain and suffering, therapy can profoundly enrich your life. The more we befriend, understand, and accept ourselves just as we are, the more we can respond to the challenges that come our way from choice rather than habitual reaction. To facilitate this I offer an openhearted, authentic presence along with mindfulness-based tools that promote self-awareness, self-compassion, and the process of healing."

Even when we're suffering however, change can feel intimidating or unattainable.

"I believe the most important element for positive change is the relationship between the therapist and client. If the client can truly trust their therapist, he or she can allow themselves to explore, heal, and integrate all aspects of themselves. This leads to a feeling of wholeness and relief from anxiety, depression, low self esteem, and other issues. I use intuition and compassion, in addition to my training and education. I care about my clients, and feel honored to witness their efforts to grow and change. Buddhist philosophy informs my overall orientation towards the enduring resilience of the human spirit."
