I see people as having rich, complex human emotions that are not well described with overly simple and often stigmatizing diagnostic labels like depression or generalized anxiety. Each person is entirely unique, with their own history, strengths, and challenges. In therapy, I will work with you to better understand yourself. When we can understand why you might be feeling or thinking or acting in a way that is not best for you, we can work together to change it in a way that is tailored to your needs and your circumstances.

For a long time now you have been looking for relief from the traumas, stressors and intensities that can arise as a part of everyday life. You may be feeling the weight of depression, or indecision; you may have learned to cope with life by starting to believe that your anxieties, self-defeating thoughts, insecurities and discomforts are simply who you are. Perhaps the idea and experience of internal and interpersonal freedom seem pleasant but have been unobtainable so far. You could be interested in exploring the fullness of your identity, learning to discover yourself and wondering how to show up as that person in your daily life

My work is grounded in a relational and body-oriented approach to therapy. I draw on the immense resources of the body-- its rich wisdom to support the cultivation of mindful presence, internal resource, gentle self inquiry/guidance and embodiment. Creating space for you to listen to your voice and inner experience allows for both depth and breath of understanding, as well as authentic expression and acceptance.

Psychotherapy provides a unique space for you to explore your experience in life in a profoundly important way. In a culture that does not make space for "negative emotions", and idealizes independence, there is little room to get to know the parts of ourselves that we imagine others will not approve of. When we aren't in touch with all aspects of our humanity, effectively shutting out parts of our experience, we can find ourselves feeling confused, depressed and/or anxious, having trouble in relationships with others, not enjoying our work, having difficulty processing grief and loss, or struggling with issues related to our identity.

When you are overcome by anxiety, it feels like you can’t get comfortable in your own skin. You feel unsettled, sped up and tense. Life feels like too much. You might constantly worry. If you are a new mom or parent, you worry that your doubts are affecting your child. Are you are doing the right thing? Why are things so hard? You might be hard on yourself or your own worst enemy at times. You feel limited. You feel you are not living your best life. You fear it could be like this forever. You long to feel settled in yourself. On-track. You want to let go of the past. You’re not sure what to do.

In 40 years of clinical practice I have come to think of what I do as a unique form of education. Psychotherapists "teach" not so much by telling people what to do (although good advice is often useful), but by helping clients to find the strength within themselves, and the needed support from those around them, to address the difficulties in their current lives in new and more effective ways. A therapeutic environment enables clients to develop a new way of understanding their life experiences that promotes higher self-esteem, increased capacity for intimacy, and greater effectiveness in work.

Safety is the essence of therapy. My interactive approach focuses on the unique requirements each person needs to feel safe to recover their authentic sense of self which had to be set aside in order to not feel alone. It offers relief from unreasonable beliefs about hurting others. This also allows me to calibrate when treatment is progressing and how to keep it on track. Those who feel stuck in unsatisfying relationships or careers, have difficult family relationships, procrastinate, are indecisive, doubt their talents, think they are an imposter and who protect others at their own expense will find this therapy helpful.
