"As I see it, the primary role of a counselor is to serve as a mirror to help reveal what the client hasn't yet been able to see-especially those patterns of relating to self, others, and the environment that might be causing suffering. At the same time, the counselor is there to reflect, affirm, and strengthen the client's unique gifts and talents.One of the biggest impediments to healing, growth, and creativity is shame. To help clients move through this debilitating emotion, I use a combination of mindfulness, body awareness, and other healing modalities."

"Some people pursue therapy because they love personal growth and self-exploration, but many of us come to therapy as a last resort or because our current experience is no longer tolerable. Even when we're suffering however, change can feel intimidating or unattainable. It can feel safer to remain in the discomfort of habitual patterns and experiences than to take a leap of faith into the unknown. It takes courage to pursue change, but if you are reading this, even if you are scared or doubtful, you have the courage required to heal and I am here to help."

Looking around, do you wonder how others seem to cope with every day stress and demands while you sometimes struggle to get out of bed?

Or perhaps you are in a life transition--relationship, identity, new circumstance, or loss--and need some support. If you can relate, perhaps it is time to reach out to a seasoned professional to help you sort things out."

I incorporate an individual's physical and emotional experience through having clients be aware of sensations in the body. It is through exploring the sensations in the body that we learn about the experiences that shaped our current feelings. In addition, it is through studying sensations in the body that we can merge with our core self or authenticity. When we are in connection with our authenticity, a deep calm can be accessed."
