Life is challenging for many of us. It often seems like we are swimming in a sea of ambiguity, uncertainty, and doubt and are not sure in what direction to go for relief. We may live in fear that we will not live up to our or other people's expectations. We may beat ourselves up to motivate ourselves. We struggle with transitions and do not live in the present moment instead getting caught up in ruminating about the past or worrying about the future. This situation is due to being human and the way our minds think and feel.

Rumi wrote, “Don’t turn away. Keep your gaze on the bandaged place. That’s where the light enters you.” We spend a lot of time running from our pain, trying to drown it out or stuff it down with distractions--work, relationships, media, alcohol. When we stop running, stop hiding, we are able to face our pain head on. Only then, are we able to be fully present and aware, which is the first step to acceptance and later, transformation. Partnering with a therapist can make this feel less daunting. I can teach you skills to manage your emotions so that they won’t overwhelm you. Together, we can help you find where the light enters you.

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.

I want to support you in healing in the deepest possible way. This has led me to explore the very roots of suffering, from the perspective of the ancient sages and from the perspective of modern trauma therapy. I support my people in experiencing the reality that exists beyond the bounds of the conditioned mind. I wield the wisdom of the body to facilitate deep transformation. I weave a nuanced understanding of the particular challenges modern minds face into what I offer to support my people in safely opening more and more fully to the freedom, love, and deep internal well-being available to us when we connect to who we truly are.

I have been providing individual, couples, and family therapy for over 35 years. Areas of specialty in my clinical practice include couple/family relational issues, anxiety, depression, stress and health, life transitions, and work systems issues. Anxiety may interfere with a person's ability to think clearly at times of stress or crisis and may impede their finding a course of action. Through the initial assessment phase and as therapy progresses, the ability to think more calmly and objectively about a problem can return. A person may then more effectively address the inevitable challenges in relationships and in life.

When we ignore or deny the things that upset us most, the more power and control we attribute to them. How often do you suppress or push away painful feelings, intrusive thoughts, shame, or chronic suicidality? Rather than avoid what’s causing our pain, fear, and discomfort, it's crucial that we stop and ask ourselves why we’re avoiding the things that make us human. When we ignore the physical and cognitive messages our bodies communicate to us, we risk neglecting what our bodies need to heal and thrive, thus denying ourselves the chance to succeed and live a value-driven and purposeful life.
