I enable clients to access the wisdom of their emotions to enhance their relationships and lives. Happy relationships and solid self-esteem are the foundations of psychological and emotional well-being, while disharmony, worries, and unhappiness signal that we need to experience new ways to effectively express feelings and enact aspirations in our lives. I strive to provide an inviting and nonjudgmental therapeutic context to empower clients to find satisfying ways to address concerns. My integrative approach draws upon Western science and Eastern wisdom, including Buddhist approaches to well-being.

Have you ever felt stuck while in a relationship or confused about who you are or where you want to be in your life? Do parts of you feel lost and insecure while other parts of you are so ready to change and give up old habits? These different parts of us may feel pressure from family, friends, work, school, and society to fit a mold of who we are supposed to be as a person. We may even put the most pressure on ourselves to be in control, strive for perfection, or please others. Yet, deep down we may feel empty, out of control, anxious, or inauthentic. You are not alone.

Sometimes it may feel like the day has been a struggle to survive. Overwhelming emotions and feelings of fear can prevent us from leading our lives fully. As a therapist, I believe that taking time to learn more about ourselves and intentionally increasing our feelings of safety allows us to activate our innate ability to heal and take us on a journey towards a life in which we are thriving. I work to provide an unoppressive space for you to explore your emotional health and identity in order to identify internal conflict and work to move forward creatively.
