I provide an environment that is empathetic, warm, compassionate & enthusiastic - an environment that facilitates personal change and growth. Since relationships & communication are central to so many of the issues we face, I specialize in Imago Therapy, the revolutionary relationship counseling techniques of Dr. Harville Hendrix. With Imago our issues and conflicts aren't the problem, they're the solution: they're signposts pointing the way toward healing the true, underlying causes. Imago teaches you how to safely explore these deeper emotional undercurrents together, so that your disagreements can actually become opportunities for greater intimacy, as you learn about each other.

What is holding you back from living your most fulfilling life? Fears, depression, anxiety, panic, hopelessness, trauma, childhood wounds still lingering? I am here to lead you on a journey of self discovery and healing. I view therapy as a collaboration and as a therapist I am an active participant and guide. While I have worked with many different types of clients and mental struggles, I sub-specialize in mind body/ neural circuit disorders such as chronic pain, IBS, fibromyalgia, fatigue, and female chronic pain syndromes. I am fascinated in neuroplasticity, how our brains can change, and how we can heal from these syndromes!

Perhaps, the essence of all your mental and emotional pain lies in your inability to love yourself. Thus, it's important to uncover all barriers within yourself that prevent you from achieving this. I highly value creating a safe space for improving self-worth. There are no easy answers, only profound opportunities to explore the unresolved questions. I'm interested in understanding what continues to hold you back in life and invested in guiding you towards greater balance, meaning, creativity, and authenticity.

Do you feel like you have tried so many times to be sober but just can't understand why you keep relapsing? My approach to treating these disorders is holistic but also can work with the 12 step model. I look at what may be driving this behavior the "underlying core issues" rather than focusing on symptoms alone. I do not see clients who are actively using drugs or alcohol. I am able to counsel family members of addicts.

Being a human being is complicated. As humans, we require a witness to our life experience and emotions. It is my honor to be that witness for each of my clients. For an adolescence, it can provide a rare space where they can work through feeling, conflicts and develop more adaptive ways of being. Our lives are full of change, and it can be the source of stress. For adults too who are stuck or are struggling with feelings, life, and trauma a safe place offers comfort. Therapy can provide a space for curiosity, discovery, and creation. A place where meaning and authenticity can be found.
