Have you had a recent difficult or traumatic life experience that you can't recover from on your own? Did you grow up in a chaotic home where it felt hard to be seen or get your needs met? You may have felt an underlying anxiety and not enough soothing due to issues beyond your control. If you struggle in your current relationships and seem to experience too many painful feelings like fear, anger, sadness, shame, or guilt you probably have unresolved trauma, even if it doesn't seem to match your idea of what that is. I can help you overcome these damaging experiences and negative feelings so that you can feel more at peace inside.

I create a safe and warm container to help you explore the blocks and obstacles that are keeping you from knowing your joy and the truth of who you are. I believe that we all come into this life with a soul purpose, lessons to learn and gifts to offer. Yogis call this our Dharma. Dharma can be seen as our sacred duty, our purpose in the world. Our primary purpose is to find inner peace and joy. Each individual has their unique path and ways to find this state. Fear and doubt causes suffering and takes us away from our dharma. Trust and listening to inner wisdom brings us closer to it.

No one, no matter how much difficulty they are facing in their life, is broken. At some point in our lives, we may feel stalled, even hopeless. I work with anyone who finds themselves in emotional pain, who wants to live a life with a sense of satisfaction, vitality, and purpose. Anyone who has the slightest desire to move towards something fuller. One of my aims is to help clients discover what it is they feel is missing in their lives, what they'd like to change about their behavior, and to hone in on what matters most to them.

The foundation of my work with you rests in the belief that human connection based on insight and empathy is transformational. Often times suffering is a result of habitual patterns and behaviors based on fear, and difficult experiences. This drains our natural ability to enjoy life, and unfortunately cultivates a culture of isolation and aloneness. Our honest and trusting therapeutic relationship will transmute your aloneness so that you once again have access to your innate resiliency and wonder of life. It takes courage and vulnerability to reach out for support. Know I will be your ally.

To others, it seems like you have it all. But underneath lives a different story. Despite your outward success, you feel haunted sometimes by feelings of failure, conflict, self-doubt. At certain moments, a gnawing sense overcomes you, telling you: Something is not right. You've made changes but somehow still end up in the same unsatisfying patterns, repeating the same unhelpful behaviors -- feeling more and more alone. You want to understand your patterns and your past so you can create a different future. You want to learn to feel differently about yourself and how you relate with others. You want to find a different way.

I see therapy as an opportunity for self discovery, healing and a safe space to move towards our growing edges. My approach is mindfulness based and collaborative. Together we can explore the narratives and relational patterns that may be getting in the way of our personal growth or intimacy with other. Through a somatic approach (integration of mind-heart-body), we arrive into a more empowered and embodied sense of being.

The roadblocks and challenges we all long to avoid often contain hidden gold. We can find this valuable treasure when we learn to relate to our pain differently. In my work I help my clients learn to release unnecessary suffering and meet the difficulties they cannot change. This brings an increased capacity for happiness. I help my clients release the need for perfection and move instead towards wholeness and completeness - holding both the joy and sorrow of life. When we learn to hold our 'broken' places with compassion, we feel more whole.
