"Have you ever wondered why you do the things you do? Or why your relationships aren't what you want them to be? Why does a part of you want to do one thing, yet another part wants to do something completely different? There are reasons behind everything we do, even when we're not aware of them. I can help you explore behaviors, and the feelings behind them, that affect your life and your relationships. Through a process called "Internal Family Systems," you can learn to understand and value yourself in ways you never thought possible."

"There are those of us who do not want simply to be rid of our pain. We sense wisdom within dark places, and seek support to learn and grow through them. Anxiety, depression, and addiction are not merely pathology, but are best understood as part of a larger system that can be brought into awareness. These symptoms may also be fundamentally connected to our greatest gifts - our sensitivity, awareness, and drive towards growth - often misplaced or misunderstood."

""Grief does not change you...it reveals you."- John Green. Loss comes in many forms; death of a loved one, family trauma, end of a relationship or job, a move/loss of home, and health issues. Experiencing grief because of loss can make us turn away just when we need the most support. We can also get triggered at certain times, especially around the holidays. Reaching out takes courage and I provide a safe, nonjudgmental and caring space to help clients express complicated emotions, manage anxiety/sleep issues, learn coping skills and practice self-care during these life changing transitions."

"Do you want more ease, joy, and meaning in your life? Therapy can help. Aside from having the obvious goal of relieving anxiety, confusion, or pain and suffering, therapy can profoundly enrich your life. The more we befriend, understand, and accept ourselves just as we are, the more we can respond to the challenges that come our way from choice rather than habitual reaction. To facilitate this I offer an openhearted, authentic presence along with mindfulness-based tools that promote self-awareness, self-compassion, and the process of healing."
