We need to build the confidence to be with and understand our inner experiences no matter what! This is our pathway to truly heal and live a more peaceful and meaningful life in the world.

My specialties include relationships, depression, anxiety, grief, women's issues, work problems, men's development, physical and stress disorders, gay/lesbian issues, PTSD and spirituality.
Analytical psychology emphasizes completeness, not perfection. Because psychological insight and self-knowledge are essential for health and vitality, it's lucky our psyches respond favorably to attention and reflection! Positive, effective, long lasting change is created. Research shows nightly dreams provide a running commentary on everyday life. Dreams anticipate, sometimes warn, and often help in resolving problems. They help you relate to the "rest of you", the part that operates out of awareness, sometimes causing symptoms, or taking over and becoming destructive. These parts appear increasingly frightening when pushed away.

My intention as a therapist is to hold space for clients to remember that they are whole and perfect as they are. As we move through the continual challenges of life I believe that each individual has the capacity to heal themselves with a little guidance and permission. Together we will look closely at thought patterns, behaviors and beliefs about the self that are no longer serving the individual. Unlearning these old ways of being allows clients to deeply connect to their truth and purpose.

I believe that each person has a unique story and carries valuable potential that is waiting to be unlocked and refined. I guide clients toward developing the personal strength and balance needed to meet life’s challenges, and I empower clients to live authentic, purposeful, and connected lives. I help clients uncover patterns that they seek to change and work with them to find new, creative solutions for moving forward to achieve their goals. As a former educator, I have extensive experience working with children and adolescents. I understand the challenges that both children and parents face in today’s world and how these affect family dynamics. Since relational interactions are important to mental and emotional health, I work with clients on developing positive communication skills in order to experience more fulfilling and harmonious relationships in all areas of life.
