I am a therapist who believes strongly that talk therapy sometimes just isn't enough. Sometimes when a person experiences difficulties in life, their defenses can often get in the way. This is especially true when you are a child, have experienced trauma, or struggle with Eating Disorders. Sandplay therapy and other approaches can help break-down those barriers and promote healing.

“Life is full of ups and downs. The trick is to enjoy the ups and have courage during the downs.” Throughout our life, each of us will experience stress, trauma, or a crisis that can trigger overwhelming emotions, making us feel out of control. Even exciting occasions such as marriage, a new career, or the birth of a child, come with change and can make us feel anxious and unsure in a way we have never felt before. My goal as a therapist is to help my clients cope with and navigate these changes.

Psychotherapy is a unique and special experience, in that it is encouraged that you share all of your thoughts & feelings, to include those that you might typically withhold. I hope to provide you with an experience of feeling validated and genuinely listened to. It may take a while to feel comfortable enough to share yourself so fully, and I will respect that, moving at your pace. Overall goals may include: feeling more connected to yourself & others, operating more flexibly and less rigidly, feeling more able to access a range of emotions, more self-compassion, more sense of purpose, and more comfort with ambiguity, among others.
