I believe that each of us has an innate capacity for healing, growth, and self-understanding. However, it is common for this inner wisdom to become blocked - whether that is due to difficult experiences, relationship issues, or life transitions. This may leave you caught up in negative thoughts and feelings, disengaged from the present moment, or living out of sync with your values. If you are looking for a therapist, that means you are already on the path of reconnecting with this inner wisdom and shifting towards a more meaningful life. I offer my complete presence and acceptance as we become collaborators on your path.

This powerful therapeutic technique is effective in treating a wide variety of issues from pain, anxiety, trauma and stress to self-esteem, addiction, skills enhancement and relationship/life transitions. I work with issues as they affect clients currently and where possible, eliminate the need to relive old and painful traumas. My aim is to have clients leave a session feeling positive and open to resolving their issue quickly. I also use the highly effective TIPI method to help resolve emotional difficulties and trauma.

My experience is that the psychological symptoms we experience in the present are the ways we have tried to protect ourselves from the experience of the early trauma that we went through in childhood, and that by clearing the early trauma, we can release the symptoms in the present. My approach is to help clients identify and resolve the early trauma so they can have a joyous life in the present.

Suffering draws us to consider therapy, much as it sends us to any doctor. The suffering therapy focuses on is emotional and existential (a LIFE that is out of whack). If you are considering therapy it means that you take your suffering seriously and wish to seek a more fulfilling life. You know instinctively that more is possible. I have many years of experience in helping people to develop greater strength and more fulfilling relationships.

**UNFORTUNATELY, MY PRACTICE IS CURRENTLY FULL AND I AM UNABLE TO ACCEPT NEW CLIENTS AT THIS TIME** My approach to therapy is to build a safe environment for clients where we work to develop coping strategies, interpersonal skills, and insight to move toward emotional and behavioral health. I treat a variety of common issues (e.g., depression, anxiety, school problems, ADHD, and adjustment difficulties) as well as more complex ones, such as those resulting from trauma. I find that therapy is most effective when clients have the support of significant individuals (e.g., parents) and I welcome their inclusion in the treatment process.

It can be both rewarding and vulnerable to begin or continue therapy: I create a warm, non-judgmental space for reworking old patterns that may not serve you anymore. Life experiences, environment, circumstances, and cultural systems of power all shape our understanding of ourselves, of others, and of the world around us. Together we can explore what matters to you most, where you may feel stuck and how you can find more ease. To inform our work, I primarily draw on your history and relational experiences, your own body’s feedback, information from contemporary neuroscience, and our in-session interactions.
