About

Ideally, I hope for clients who want change, or who are in a huge shift in their lives. The most secret, vulnerable parts of ourselves require a trusted, open sanctuary for healing to begin. Life can be difficult, cruel at times, but the luminous is real, and contains genuine relief. We always have options. We cannot always see them. A good fit for me is someone who wants a therapist who will really listen, but who brings a lot of lived experience. I have desire to see people thrive and grow, set a new course. My clients usually find their courage, as we work, slower or faster. Resilience is always there. You have gotten here.
Am skilled in relationship and attachment issues, persons of all ages experiencing anxiety and depression, or who are suffering under intense interpersonal or professional relationship challenges, health crises, and issues related to care of aging family members. I have trained in Somatic Psychotherapy and EMDR. I help people talk about difficult things.
Am a seasoned, veteran through ALL the life stages. I first worked in my life with special needs learners. No one has ever seemed "odd" to me. Even more of my life has been spent working with artists, in the business end of creativity. My interest and experience of family of origin issues and trauma, informs all my work, with all ages, in many challenges.
