It is during challenging times such as these when one is often afforded the greatest opportunity for growth, transformation, and healing. If you’re feeling lost, broken, or like you've exhausted your resources to cope with life, it may be a good time to start therapy. Whether you’re depressed, overwhelmed, or struggling in relationship, my goal is to use my seventeen plus years of experience as a psychotherapist to help you relieve suffering and arrive at a deeper understanding and appreciation for yourself. Pain is sometimes inevitable in life, but suffering need not be.

Bravely stepping out of our comfort zone and navigating with curiosity and an open mind what we find challenging and painful allows us to grow and transform. My job is to help you feel safe, understood and connected while engaging in this exploration together. My approach is compassionate, non-judgmental and collaborative, ultimately trusting in your wisdom and inner knowing. I have found that by bringing awareness and compassion to our minds, emotions and bodies we are able to notice conditioned beliefs, thoughts and behaviors that may no longer serve us. Through this work we can move toward greater agency and acceptance.

My passion for this work is fueled by my view that every individual already has the answers they are seeking, whether they realize this or not. On our brief time on this planet, therapy provides an invaluable gateway toward healing, self-discovery, and more often than not, an expanded awareness. What else lies in this work is for you to discover.

We often come to therapy in crisis. Something has gone wrong in a relationship. Major, disorienting life transitions are underway. Emotional experiences are becoming increasingly overwhelming. Life seems stuck, static, depressing. Anxiety is on the rise. A series of events have altered our course. We are feeling lost. Therapy can offer a soothing lifeboat for these rough seas. Often crisis is a wake up call, a time for necessary change, new growth, a reconnoitering of the landscape, a vivid reorientation. My practice is designed to move you from crisis to care, from care to confidence, confidence to creative, enlivening capacity.

I help people lead an examined life. Our difficulties come and go, but there's wisdom in using them to learn about ourselves more deeply. This allows us to navigate life's challenges with more grace, and less pain and a lot more humor. Therapy is a funny thing. It's two people, in a room, agreeing to focus on improving one of their lives. Sounds astoundingly simple. When it works, it can offer profound, lasting, and substantial changes in one's life and, in the best case, allow you to develop depth, wisdom, and clarity. I work with people in tech, and leaders, artists and seekers who are looking to lead a vital and integrated life.

I'm a very experienced psychotherapist with over 30 years experience in many settings. I'm warm and compassionate, but also practical. I work from a growth model that helps you access your own wisdom and make a commitment to change. My background in the arts and Jungian psychology attunes me to the dreams and imagery that can inform you about your life course, but I also help you bring these dreams into action. My experience with mind/body can help you prepare for and recover from surgery, develop resilience, stress reduction, confront mortality and life changes, find meaningful work, and appreciate relationships.

Life can be better... we can feel, think, and live more in alignment with the ways that we really want to. Psychotherapy is an effective tool that can help get us there. While friends can help relieve loneliness and various medications can ease symptoms, the process of psychotherapy helps us to change the way we see, experience, and interact with our feelings and the world around us. For the past 19 years I have had a full-time psychotherapy practice and have helped many individuals and couples activate potential and live fuller more rewarding lives.

Each session, we begin with what's most present for you, following aliveness as it unfolds - moment-to-moment, wherever it leads. The process has its own intelligence and is highly trustworthy. You bring all of you - light and shadow, blessings and challenges, interests and needs - as well as whatever hurts, feels stuck, or is ready to be released or reclaimed. I bring all of me - presence and deep listening, non-judgment and curiosity, intuition, theory and tools. Together, we co-create ways of working that are unique to you.

Therapy provides an opportunity to slow down amidst the rapid paces of our lives and look around to explore the ways we cope with difficulty. Ultimately, this teaches us more about who we truly are. Pain is inevitable in our lives, but it can function as a window into our truer, deeper selves. Contacting and nurturing the parts of ourselves that have been hurt, shamed, or neglected helps us to more fully embody our unique selves and find freedom from the constraints of our suffering.

Welcome! Mindfulness is a practice of self awareness where one learns the significance of what I call the "emotional pause". This allows our minds and bodies to process and integrate information, creating space for self acceptance and making choices that support and align with our personal wellbeing. While I use a variety of theraputic modalities I find mindful psychotherapy to be one of the most effective therapies in facilitating personal growth and change. When we are willing to deepen the relationship to ourselves and allow ourselves to compassionately understand what is preventing us from living fully growth and change occur.
