Are you struggling to overcome your past? Do you find yourself feeling stuck and disconnected in your every day life? Do you find yourself engaging in repetitive patterns yet unsure how to change? Whether you struggle with managing your emotions or your behaviors, people have an incredible ability to rise above their challenges and achieve healing and connection with the life they want. I believe in the transformational ability of therapy to overcome past events and present obstacles both in ourselves and our life to find new strength, resolve and meaning. I believe the road to healing is illuminated through self-discovery.

**Is currently accepting new clients** Congratulations on taking that first step in seeking counseling. I fully recognize your strength and also appreciate everything that has led you to pursuing counseling in the first place. Sometimes we may become so frozen by all of the “what if” scenarios, planning for our future, and a general fear of things we can’t control. Other times we may get caught dwelling on the past and all of the things we wished we had done or “should” have done. You are an individual with a unique set of identities, experiences, and a story to tell.

I am a master therapist and trainer. What interests me most is exploring how people have become distorted from their true nature and lost touch with what matters most to them. The work is to help us all clear the distortions so we can return to who we are: awake, kind, free. I am an EMDR therapist and trainer. I also use a lot of Buddhist Psychology in my work, working to understand the nature of satisfaction and dissatisfaction as well as the nature of self. I teach/coach meditation as well as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, which is about living life fully, from what we truly value rather than being caught up in our minds.

Do you long to experience change in your life? Maybe you're feeling defeated in life, seeking freedom from a shaming voice inside, longing for greater connection in relationships, or facing a significant transition or loss. Whatever you're experiencing, I believe there is no cookie cutter approach to addressing the complex problems of life. I view psychotherapy as a coming alongside journey that creates an open, safe space where you as a whole person and the particulars of your story (including those places where you feel most stuck) can be explored, understood, and worked through to cultivate hope and transformation.
