Human lives are dynamic, unpredictable and full of challenges that can be exciting and life-affirming as they expose us to both the vulnerability and the beauty of our humanness. But sometimes life pushes us beyond the limits of our resilience – to the point of being overwhelmed or emotionally bereft. We may feel completely stuck, questioning everything about our lives, our values, and our purpose. These moments threaten our identity and selfhood as well as our relationships with others. We may feel alone, unlovable and unworthy, sometimes holding the weight of regret, secrets, and shame.

Your inner growth is completely dependent on the realization that you are not the voice in your head. If you observe the voice objectively you will notice that much of what it says is meaningless. The truth is, most of life unfolds in accordance with forces outside your control regardless of what your mind says about it. The voice in your head actually has no effect on anything or anybody, except you. It simply makes you feel better or worse about what is going on now, what has gone on in the past, or what might go on in the future. It’s the commotion the mind makes about life that causes our problems.

My roots as a therapist and healer have seeded over the past thirty-five years, bringing substance and depth to my one-on-one sessions with couples and individuals. During this time, I have maintained a private practice, which has always consisted of process-oriented consciousness work -- a means by which to enter safely and deeply into the inner landscape of the psyche for positive and real world change. My results-oriented approach to psychology is derived from the commitment to a conscious process and the intrapsychic relationship one can access when choosing to turn toward--and look at--oneself.

Many challenges we experience in daily life relate to conflict between parts of ourself. Each part reflects our body’s own loving attempts to care for us in the best ways it knows. When we shift one part of this feedback loop, the whole system rearranges. This is what makes transformation possible. My approach to therapy is client-centered and eclectic. I start with creating a non-judgmental, inclusive space for you to come as you are. As we form and reach for your goals, our work may include body awareness, mindfulness practices, trauma modalities, behavior/communication coaching, and treating all parts of a system holistically.

How you feel about yourself doesn’t align with how you’d like to feel, and your relationships aren’t turning out the way you hoped they would. You worry so much that you worry about worrying, and you get lost in made-up scenarios of "what if..." Maybe you aren’t sure how to ask for what you want, and declare what you need.

Life is truly uncertain, yet the current pandemic has highlighted and intensified this experience for many of us. COVID-19 is changing how we look at and experience life, work and relationships, thus creating new thoughts and feelings about our lives. Whether you are encountering anxiety, depression, addiction, relationship issues and/or other possibly debilitating physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual obstacles they can be worked with during this time of uncertainty. Additionally, with over 15 years of experience in various healthcare settings I work with burnout, compassion fatigue, moral distress and other stressors.

If you were honest with yourself, though, you’d admit how stressful it is to live for other people. You’re terrified you’ll lose relationships if you speak up or say no. Your energy is drained or you feel resentful. You’re exhausted from wondering if others like you or approve of you. If you make choices that disappoint others, you feel guilty and selfish. Your whole identity is about pleasing others, & you want to feel comfortable being your authentic self, but you have no idea how.

I work with patients from a variety of backgrounds who have diverse concerns that bring them to therapy. In general, patients come to me because they want something to go better in their lives. The solution for some may be to optimize the way they think: about themselves, their circumstances, and about the people in their lives. For other's, there may be something that needs to be better understood about their inner lives: their emotional world, their fantasy life, their wishes, dreams, etc. Most enter therapy because some combination of their circumstances, symptoms, and awareness has pushed them to a point where they want more.
