Thank you for taking the time to view my profile. Life can be overwhelming at times and it can feel as if you are not properly equipped to handle the difficulties you have to face. I believe that we all try to do the right thing, but sometimes old habits persist, unwanted feelings intrude, and we can feel like we are doing it all alone. If you choose to explore working with me, I hope to encourage your natural curiosity about your life, your relationships, and your current circumstances. I hope to encourage connections that lead you towards lasting change.

Life is hard. It is also beautiful and rich with complexity. At times, we can find ourselves stuck and overwhelmed, confused, fearful, angry and grieving. It is human to struggle. We all need support in navigating challenges and healing wounds. As a body inclusive therapist, my intention is to help you expand your awareness with embodied compassion. From this awareness comes the power to transform. Together, we will explore the thoughts and feelings that create your reality, and with care and humor uncover possibilities. Many struggles are symptoms of a stressful, fast-paced world. I offer a soft place to land in a crazy world.

It can be hard to change our habits and ways of relating with ourselves and with others even when old patterns are causing significant emotional pain. For real change to take place, something beyond motivation and a commitment to change is often needed. What can make a real difference involves finding a receptive person and an accepting environment that fosters a deeper understanding of one's self. I strive to provide such a receptive and safe environment to my clients with the hope that they feel listened to, understood, and recognized in their desires to get to know themselves, to connect with others and to feel alive in the world

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in 20912, also known as insight-oriented therapy, evolved from Freudian psychoanalysis. Like adherents of psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapists believe that bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness promotes insight and resolves conflict. But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in 20912 are able to work with a wide range of issues. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in 20912

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in 20912 you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in 20912 and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in 20912 or family therapy in 20912.
