About

Problems are problems, people are not problems. Thru 26+ years of clinical practice, I've been privileged to companion many individuals & families facing cancer, chronic illnesses & distress (depression/anxiety), providing empathy, compassion, insights & support. We stand up to problems together focusing on resilience, wellness, enhanced coping, reduced distress, and adjusting to loss & life transitions. We find your strengths and values when they have been obscured by problems. I skillfully weave eclectic therapies with mindfulness, compassion & meaning-making, offering companionship on one's quest for personal insights & renewal.
Life is lived in cultural & societal contexts worth examining. Healing occurs when real-life struggles are brought to therapy & mindful awareness is used to gain insights within the therapeutic relationship. This allows insights of therapy & practice into life. Understanding & living fully in the present moment is the best way to prepare for what is to come.
Live life more fully again despite suffering. Rooted in therapeutic connectedness, kindness, presence, embodied attention, empathy & compassion and through developing an authentic & welcoming relationship, we co-create opportunities for growth, change, healing, equanimity & renewal. Gains made in our time together are naturally disseminated into daily life.
