Most of us are trying to avoid our pain, in spite of the fact that it is an inevitable and crucial part of the human experience. In fact, we are never so fully human as when we surrender to the reality of our wounds. Only when we stay with our pain can we hope to learn what it has to teach us in the hopes of ultimately transforming it into something meaningful and life-giving that may just propel us into the life we've always wanted. But it is hard learning how to integrate our wounds. I will help you.

Discovering who we are, where we came from and what has transpired in our lives is vitally important in understanding how we relate to others and the world around us. My approach to counseling utilizes the Family Systems Model and Cognitive-Behavioral techniques.  I believe our past experiences and environments help us to develop how we think and respond to life’s stresses.  This is where CBT can be helpful in changing false thinking and negative responses. As a client understands themselves and their current situation they can change their thinking process and subsequently their behaviors.

I offer support and intuitive guidance in a unique way. The focus is on helping you reconnect to the wise part of yourself, your Buddha/self, and to help you find the answers for your challenges within. We will explore this by looking at dreams and by learning to unlock the depths of your unconscious mind and the pure gold of wisdom that inhabits your psyche. I studied at the Pacifica Graduate Institute. This program is unique in that it provides a depth psychology approach to therapy. In other words the soul is included in therapy.

In therapy, I work to develop a relationship where you can both specifically explore the issues that have brought you to therapy- depression, anxiety, relationship struggles, lack of purpose, trauma, drug and alcohol issues-- and your life, in general. This atmosphere allows you to gain more self-knowledge and self-acceptance as well as to see fresh perspectives on your troubles and desires. You can then begin to find a way through some necessary changes. An important aspect of my therapy approach is encouraging clients to take steps to live life in more alignment with who they are.

I think counseling is always useful, even when there's nothing "wrong." We get a lot of chances to go, go, go but not a lot to slow down and reflect. Usually it takes some crisis of feeling or relationship to tell us it's time. I see those crises as opportunities, doorways to deeper understanding. And because we're not fixed individuals, they come and go as we change and grow.
