In individual therapy, I create a warm environment where my clients feel comfortable to discuss their issues. Together we develop goals & strategies for cultivating positive changes. In couples work, we address problematic communication to change those patterns from ineffective to effective habits & behaviors."

Too often our happiness is buried beneath traumas and unhealthy relationships.I believe that one of the most important aspects of the process of change is rooted in the working relationship between the psychotherapist and the client.

"I help people meet their full life's potential. I support children, adolescents, teens, and adults cope with and heal from the challenges bringing them to therapy, including grief, anxiety, depression, ADD/ADHD, and many others. My treatment approach, Compassion-Focused Therapy, is similar to Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, encouraging clients to explore outdated thoughts and beliefs. It utilizes mindfulness, focusing upon self-acceptance as a means to change and gain better understanding of what one can and can't control. I borrow metaphors from Eastern Philosophy, including Aikido, a martial art with which I have over a decade of experience."

I hope to collaborate with you to build resilience, transform old patterns and find new pathways to growth and change. Our bodies are foundational to our moment-to-moment experience, holding wisdom that can help us grow and make meaning. Because trauma is often held in the body, we can use somatic mindfulness and more to learn what our body and mind need to set better boundaries, enhance relational connection, and integrate trauma-related feelings and memories.

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.
