It's another day feeling inundated by work and family demands. Working, parenting, and home schooling are three jobs you never thought you would be doing at the same time. Your sweet kid went to bed late last night again and woke up tired and complaining about everything. You worry she might fall behind in school or that she's developing bad habits. Your protectiveness and patience turns to irritation and you tell her to “Just stop!” She stays in her room for most of the day doesn’t say another word to you until dinner. You want what’s best for your kid. It’s confusing not knowing what just happened and why.

No matter how dark your struggle, there is a part of you that knows how to heal. The map to wholeness is inside you, like the map to a flower is already within its seed. I trust the timing and direction of this process and strive to create a safe, trustworthy environment for it to unfold. My style is warm and real. I will not diagnose or try and "fix" you. I will not analyze you. I will pay deep attention to what's happening in for you in the moment - mind, body and spirit.

I enjoy working with adolescents(16 and older), adults and couples. I have fourteen years experience as a clinician and have been licensed for the past 10 years. I use many different tools to facilitate change, including CBT and ACT for symptom relief and the techniques and processes of Hakomi, a body-centered depth psychotherapy, which integrates western psychology, advances in neurobiology, and the mindfulness practices of Buddhist Meditation. I believe that decreasing unhealthy stress, restoring trust in relationships, and changing self-limiting belief systems can lead to transformation. I use a warm, friendly, and engaged style of therapy.

Adults and teenagers address how the use of substances, alcohol, drugs, food, impacts their lives in negative and unproductive ways. We seek solutions together to more satisfying lifestyles and relationships. I work with couples and individuals having difficulties in relationships, wanting to resolve problems rather than separating or divorcing as the only solution.

Quite the opposite of being shy or shyness, yet still on the same spectrum.
