You are much more more than a diagnosis or category! It is a challenge for us all to make meaning in a chaotic world. I work with creative people, perfectionists, harsh self-critics and existential struggles in singles, couples & groups. I have expertise in helping people recognize problematic substance use, with Harm Reduction as a philosophical approach. Cross-cultural sensitivity is a great value. I enjoy working with young and early-career adults. I enjoy learning from the people I see.

Deciding to seek out therapy may be one of the most difficult choices a person makes in a lifetime. Those individuals who ask for help with their lives when they feel most vulnerable deserve great respect and admiration. With the frightening advent of Covid-19, it may be more important now than ever to seek out help and support to, "talk about the things that really matter" in your life (Martin Luther King, 1963). My goal is to provide you with warmth, empathy, and years of my professional experience as we talk about the things that really matter to you. Together we work in a deeply genuine, person-to-person connection.

Life presents to us a consistent ebb and flow of challenges. As we navigate these, we are guided by our sense of identity, our past experiences, and the patterns we have learned. Often, however, these solutions do not serve us in the present and take the form of habits of mind and action which hold us back, shape our relationships, and create the illusion of false limitations; but there is hope. We are able to shape our lives through changing our patterns, the way we think and communicate, and the actions we learn to take. Through self understanding we may update our narrative and with it transform our realities.

Narrative Therapists
Narrative Therapy uses the client's storytelling to indicate the way they construct meaning in their lives, rather than focusing on how they communicate their problem behaviors. 02144 Narrative Therapy embraces the idea that stories actually shape our behaviors and our lives and that we become the stories we tell about ourselves. There are helpful narratives we can choose to embrace as well as unhelpful ones. Although it may sound obvious, the power of storytelling is to elevate the client--who is the authority of their narrative--rather than the therapist, as expert. Check these therapists for find Narrative Therapy in 02144.
