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.

Finding the right therapist can be challenging. In addition to speaking with you initially on the phone, I am happy to offer a free 50 minute consultation in my office so you can remove the guesswork and get a clear sense of what therapy with me will feel like. I bring a wealth of experience in treating everything from depression, anxiety and relationship challenges to ADHD, addictive behaviors and trauma. I have an excellent resource of referrals to physicians (both Western and naturopaths), psychiatrists, and nutritionists. Most importantly, I listen deeply to my clients and work collaboratively to facilitate change.

For many people it is hard to ask for help when it comes to sorting out the challenges of life. Making the decision to seek assistance from a therapist is courageous and can be rewarded with a safe, warm and supportive therapy environment. I work with people who often feel they are in crisis, experience anxiety or depression, have a low sense of self and struggle with the relationships in their lives but are motivated to gain insight and skills that are necessary to make lasting positive changes.

Many of my clients are those who tend to give too much, disconnect from their own needs and desires, feel depressed and anxious, and/or experience chronic pain. They are often highly sensitive and imaginative, helpers and healers, with literary, artistic, or philosophical leanings. They are all seeking to heal inner conflicts and relationship problems rooted in early attachment wounds or traumatic experiences. Most importantly, my clients have come to recognize it's time to do their inner work in order to create the outer life they want, and they continue to grow and deepen into their innate wisdom long after therapy has ended.

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.

We are living in very stressful times that challenge us to find meaning. Often the very painful issues that bring people to therapy -- anxiety and/or depression, difficulty with relationships, life-cycle transitions, trauma, illness, aging, lack of purpose and belonging -- present a wonderful opportunity for exploration, growth, and development. I especially enjoy working with individuals in transition, whether in early adulthood, mid-life, or the "third chapter" of older age and have a special place in my heart for those who struggle with feelings of not fitting in, living non-traditional lives or in non-traditional relationships.
