During these trying times, emotional, spiritual and psychological health matter. Because each person is unique, there is no set formula for helping someone find solutions and achieve goals. I focus on you and your particular circumstance without judgement in a process which is direct, supportive, and interactive. When choosing a therapist you want to consider experience and a sense that this is someone you can trust. I am a seasoned psychotherapist and have been training practitioners for over two decades. If what you've already tried is not working, I am here to help you explore, identify, and realize alternatives.

Human lives are dynamic, unpredictable and full of challenges that can be exciting and life-affirming as they expose us to both the vulnerability and the beauty of our humanness. But sometimes life pushes us beyond the limits of our resilience – to the point of being overwhelmed or emotionally bereft. We may feel completely stuck, questioning everything about our lives, our values, and our purpose. These moments threaten our identity and selfhood as well as our relationships with others. We may feel alone, unlovable and unworthy, sometimes holding the weight of regret, secrets, and shame.

Are you feeling anxious or stressed and find it hard to get out of your head? Do you feel consumed with worry? Perhaps you feel stuck in a sad place from a past loss or a present difficulty or feel little hope for the future. These feelings can cause us to isolate and feel misunderstood by others. Many times, people feel beaten down by the world and end up turning their experiences inward, feeding a harsh self-critic who makes us doubt or judge ourselves, taking us away from the power of our inner resources. When we feel disconnected to ourselves, it is harder to build trust to connect to others and the larger world.

You possess all you need for psychological wholeness, yet this is often too challenging to bring forth alone. Together, we establish a safe space where wounds, old stories, limiting beliefs, pain or pleasure, traumas, any way that life has tamed you, and anything that is present can be worked with. The process of reconnecting and rewilding your soul and spirit can be lengthy and present with some pain and discomfort, but I meet you lovingly, with a heart-centered approach to honoring your sacred timing. I've specialized with adolescents and adults and also work with wolves in an integrative animal therapy program.

Many challenges we experience in daily life relate to conflict between parts of ourself. Each part reflects our body’s own loving attempts to care for us in the best ways it knows. When we shift one part of this feedback loop, the whole system rearranges. This is what makes transformation possible. My approach to therapy is client-centered and eclectic. I start with creating a non-judgmental, inclusive space for you to come as you are. As we form and reach for your goals, our work may include body awareness, mindfulness practices, trauma modalities, behavior/communication coaching, and treating all parts of a system holistically.
