People seek therapy at vulnerable moments in their lives. Developing a space of safety is primary and it is important to me to hold this in mind as we begin. My primary role is to listen, and listen closely, though I work in an interactive fashion. I seek to help my patients develop self- compassion as they begin to consider aspects of their lives and experiences that have been kept "out of bounds". I am comfortable working with problems of mood, anxiety, relationships, work life and parenting issues.

Most people solve most problems on their own or with help from friends, but that doesn’t always work. Troubles mount up. Upheavals catch you unawares. “Go to” solutions can leave you empty-handed. Even planned changes can be disorienting - job changes, retirement, new relationships, going off to school, children leaving home. Sometimes people just need help coping, changing bad habits, or thinking through options. Other times people feel hemmed in by circumstances, or find they don’t recognize themselves in the life they lead and want to deepen their sense that the life they are living reflects their own values and choices.

I approach therapy with the understanding that our mind and body are not separated but aspects of a unified whole. Our emotions and life history are held and manifest in the body and change begins when we acknowledge and work with our full being. Through a process that goes beyond talk, I help my clients bring attention to how their concerns effect how they breathe, feel, move, think and express themselves, as I support them in gradually exploring the underlying emotional terrain.

I help individuals and couples work through all issues that come up in the human experience. I believe that the predominant cause of the problems that arise both internally and externally in our lives are tied to the human struggle to cultivate self-acceptance and self-love. I can help you identify and deconstruct the places you judge yourself, learn that these beliefs are untrue and cultivate compassion for your experiences and the places within you that difficult feelings stem from. Through developing increased self-awareness and acceptance, you can take empowered responsibility for your fulfillment, enhance productivity and foster healing, happiness, understanding and love.

Why do people seek help? I think people in great pain have somehow lost their ability to navigate in the world. Depression, anxiety, and fear renders a person helpless and one cannot summon their old ways of being. Recent trauma or unresolved issues can suddenly alienate a person from themselves. Often people are wrestling with unexamined fears or emotions that have long been dissociated. In the safety of the therapeutic space, the client can confront that which is most difficult with the aim of once again feeling whole, thus able to pursue, with energy and pleasure, their work and relationships.

As a licensed creative arts therapist (drama, art, music, movement, play. creative writing) my skills are especially suitable for clients who have been through levels of trauma (domestic violence, divorce, dating abuse, PTSD, grief and loss, depression, self-harm, anxiety. etc.). In addition, I work with high-functioning kids/teens on the autism spectrum. I have found that the visual and physical work of role-playing, scene-work, improvisation, simple drawings, and video work increases their skills to recognize facial cues and feelings. Through play, these clients build self-esteem, social skills, deepen their emotional range and gain empathy.
