I look forward to meeting each new client and getting to know him or her. I know with our busy lives we all have a number of stressors and conflicts. Sometime our usual ways of dealing with these no longer work. My goal is to help you find effective ways to deal with these stressors, so that you can complete therapy feeling happier, more in charge of your life, and can reach that place deep inside where each of us is our very best self.

Throughout our lives, we encounter a variety of natural transitions, some of which challenge our ability to cope. Death, divorce, life threatening illness, career change, marriage, becoming a parent, spiritual or existential crisis...to name a few. In an attempt to adjust, many of us experience emotional distress. I would be honored to work with you to provide support. I enjoy working with people of all ages including young children and teens. Through talk therapy, expressive arts, sand tray, and engaged play, my goal is to make each client feel prioritized, heard, cared about, valued, and nurtured throughout their process.

I believe the most important element for positive change is the relationship between the therapist and client. If the client can truly trust their therapist, he or she can allow themselves to explore, heal, and integrate all aspects of themselves. This leads to a feeling of wholeness and relief from anxiety, depression, low self esteem, and other issues. I use intuition and compassion, in addition to my training and education. I care about my clients, and feel honored to witness their efforts to grow and change. Buddhist philosophy informs my overall orientation towards the enduring resilience of the human spirit.

I believe that healing and growth are innate human capacities, yet these can become overwhelmed by powerful and/or chronic stressors. My priorities as we begin our healing relationship together are to ensure a sense of safety for you in the therapy process, as well as a sense of collaborativity. I take an integrative approach to healing, drawing on the following disciplines and treatment modalities: mindfulness practices, archetypal psychology, art therapy, play therapy, multiple somatic modalities, and nutritional psychology.

In a culture that is fast paced with heavy demands on our time, so many of us do not have safe spaces to reflect, feel, listen and learn about ourselves. This can lead to dis-ease. I believe that providing a warm, judgement free space to discover and untangle some of the thoughts, feelings and experiences that bind us can lead to greater freedom of choice, better health and overall wellness. We all hold the answers to the peace we are looking for.

For many of us life brings about unexpected changes and loss. In the midst of change we often find ourselves struggling to sleep, eat or make the healthy choices we wish we would. We may find ourselves shutting down, numbing out or we keep busy, never slowing down. We try everything within our strength to ignore, run from or avoid our pain. What would happen if we stopped, found a safe person, in a safe space to turn and face our pain and begin to heal?
