I provide therapy for adults 18 years old and over in a safe and non-judgmental environment. I can help you heal from past or current Trauma, and help reduce Trauma's often disturbing, intrusive and long lasting effects. I also work with individuals to help manage anxiety, depression, stress, emotional eating, relationship problems, abandonment fears, or grief and loss. My approach is holistic and mind / body oriented. I combine traditional talk therapy with mindfulness and embodiment based techniques. I consider it a privilege to be entrusted with working with people in this vital, vulnerable and healing way.

I help empower sensitive, empathic adults to recognize and honor their own needs and voices. You might have noticed yourself saying yes to others when you wanted to say no, or a tendency to take care of others, sacrificing yourself. Perhaps you haven’t even recognized your own needs many times, being so attuned to others. I offer expertise, guidance and support for you to better recognize. understand, honor, and tend to your unique needs and your valued relationships, and navigate these challenges according to your own Inner Compass.

As a depth/soul oriented therapist, I see therapy as a way to understand ourselves and our lives more deeply. We get curious about what’s happening for you using intuition and creativity. Some of the modalities we might use include Mindfulness, breathwork, Somatic/body awareness, art therapy, and Gestalt therapy.

I know what it feels like to need, but not have, a strong and caring connection with an understanding other. I also know the level of healing and transformation that occurs when we have such a connection. This is the therapeutic relationship, and I deeply appreciate my role within it. Whether it be to move through suffering, heal from trauma or loss, face life challenges/transitions, increase insight, build resilience, or gain a richer sense of who you are --all of these things and many more are possible in a good therapeutic relationship. I am here for this.

It’s late. Today’s work is finally done. You’re the last one to bed, after snapping at everyone else. You pause...Instead of enjoying the moment of peace and quiet reflection that you long for, there’s a vague sense of dread. It seems that whenever you stop, you find yourself filled with anxiety. You feel off-center. Never at ease. Never enough. You don’t want to go to bed because you know it’ll be another restless night of tossing and turning, alone--again. No one gets it. You’re not just tired, you're weary. That weariness gnaws at you. That ache, that longing for something different, something better, something more...
