Life is continually bringing us opportunities to expand who we are. Life experiences can be painful at times but we don't need to stay stuck in them. Unexpressed emotions keep us bound to the past, we end up repeating patterns, situations and scenarios through our beliefs, thoughts and emotions that are rooted in the past. I invite you to take the first step into a new way of being, one where you feel free. You are not alone in this. My role is to assist you in coming back into alignment with your authentic self.

I work primarily with individuals interested in exploring their relationship with the unknown. Issues of grief; whether related to loss around death, illness, divorce or a break-up; as well as job termination and retirement. Life transitions of many kinds usually entail a grieving process-even positive ones such as marriage, career change, graduation, or a geographic move or the birth of a child. With these changes, you may feel uneasy that you are not as happy as you 'should be'. We are always writing the story of our lives. And we are already becoming that to which we aspire. I offer supportive space for that creative process.

Being a psychotherapist for the past 20 years has and continues to be a journey with people that validates my belief healing and deep change is truly possible. The therapeutic relationship which is a special and sacred connection is by far the most essential ingredient to real shifts in our attachment systems and long held unconscious beliefs about ourselves and the world. My background is mainly centered in Body/Mind experiential psychotherapy. I help people to slow down and bring mindful awareness to their experience. This allows us to study together what’s happening in the here and now.

It takes courage to reckon with some of the most private, honest, scary, and hopeful places within you. Effective support during these times can be transformational. You may want to discover new ways of being in the world, your skin, and your life that feel authentic, and alive. Or, you may be wanting relief from painful relationship patterns, anger, grief, fear, self-criticism, “stuckness” or addiction. My clients often find my approach feels both comfortable and challenging, and facilitates greater self-love and empowerment. I hold licenses in Mental Health Counseling and Chemical Dependency.
