What is it that brings vitality? What gets you stuck? Often times we don't realize, we are not taught, that the key to well being is our relationship with self and with what is actually happening, not what we think should happen. As we learn to trust what is arising rather than believe it is bad, and we learn to value and process emotions and experiences, we start to relate to our self and to life differently. Setting limits, bold choices, passion and clarity become more possible and natural. And so we find: our suffering, our symptoms turn out not to be a problem to be fixed, but a gateway to our freedom.

The struggle in life can get real, sometimes more often than we like. Maybe you are struggling with feeling stressed, isolated, hopeless, anxious, lost or unmotivated. It could be that life has become misaligned and you are ready to address your substance use whether it be alcohol and/or other drugs. Maybe you are the primary caregiver for your aging parent or grandparent, and the physical and emotional challenges have become too overwhelming. You are the expert in your life. I will encourage you to be creatively brave as we navigate and discover ways to strengthen your self-esteem, relationships and coping skills.

Do you struggle to get your needs met in your relationships? Perhaps you try repeatedly and fail to achieve harmony? I have a special interest in working with individuals experiencing unhappiness in their important relationships. When my clients first come in, they may feel they are doing the heavy lifting and hope that things will change. Their relationship dissatisfaction gets in the way of the life they want in so many ways. They aren’t the person they strive to be according to their values. They feel like they are failing as a partner and in life. Greater self-confidence and fulfillment are attainable.

My love is helping people learn to navigate the terrain of the body and to find the wisdom and freedom of feeling and ‘sensing’ as ways of knowing and healing. This domain is difficult to navigate alone - We live in a time when our nervous systems are deeply taxed and carry significant trauma, and in which the cultural resources for healing have been repressed or lost under the weight of systems of oppression. I want to help you find your way back to a sense of wholeness by listening to your innate wisdom. Please note- I only accept clients who have some form of contemplative practice because it creates a foundation for our work!

Dealing with life changes can be challenging and overwhelming for anyone. As a therapist, my role is to provide a supportive and accepting setting in which people may gain a better understanding of themselves and find more effective ways to cope. I believe the basis for the therapeutic process is the human connection that gets created. This relationship develops in the shared space and time through an open conversation that allows a deep observation into the challenging issues of everyday life. Together we could identify what serves you, what barriers may get in the way, and find ways to better cope with change and hardship.

I believe that we have all of the tools in us already to make the change we desire. Therapy can serve to identify and access those qualities, offering a place to create a safe relationship and to explore and strengthen ones' sense of self, and to work through challenges. Do you have trouble liking yourself? Do you struggle with low confidence, anxiety or other intense emotions, such as shame or guilt? In my relational approach to treatment, I strive to find a balance, reduce suffering, and work toward the change the individual desires.

Sometimes we struggle and need help finding our way back to the life we want to live. We may experience feelings of anxiety, depression, hopelessness, and guilt. As a therapist, I aim to create a safe space for my clients to explore their feelings and experiences, and ultimately move towards the things they value. My practice is rooted in compassion, acceptance, and non-judgement. As a LGBTQI affirming therapist, I also recognize the role that oppression plays in creating and maintaining psychological pain. As such, the queer community is a priority in my work.

Are you experiencing anxiety, depression, and/or a general feeling of loss? Do you find yourself reacting or having repetitive thoughts like "I'm not good enough" or "something is wrong with me?" Have you found talk therapy to not quite meet your needs? Sometimes, traumatic or stressful life events can cause us to feel disconnected from our environments and misinterpret what is safe/unsafe. In my therapeutic practice, I go beyond talk therapy to hold space for all human emotional experiences and responses. I seek to help you heal and increase moments of creativity, connection, and play in your day-to-day life.
