I look forward to meeting each new client and getting to know him or her. I know with our busy lives we all have a number of stressors and conflicts. Sometime our usual ways of dealing with these no longer work. My goal is to help you find effective ways to deal with these stressors, so that you can complete therapy feeling happier, more in charge of your life, and can reach that place deep inside where each of us is our very best self.

Crises and painful emotions can be the beginning of a journey toward transformation and wisdom. If you are looking for a deeper and more connected sense of yourself, and fulfillment in life, then you may be ready for a commitment to the therapeutic process. I believe my empathic presence - the capacity to hear, see and feel a situation from the other person's vantage point- is central to the healing process. Within such a safe relationship the patient can develop an open attitude toward the unconscious; exploration of the meaning and purpose of one's life can unfold.

I believe the most important element for positive change is the relationship between the therapist and client. If the client can truly trust their therapist, he or she can allow themselves to explore, heal, and integrate all aspects of themselves. This leads to a feeling of wholeness and relief from anxiety, depression, low self esteem, and other issues. I use intuition and compassion, in addition to my training and education. I care about my clients, and feel honored to witness their efforts to grow and change. Buddhist philosophy informs my overall orientation towards the enduring resilience of the human spirit.

I believe that healing and growth are innate human capacities, yet these can become overwhelmed by powerful and/or chronic stressors. My priorities as we begin our healing relationship together are to ensure a sense of safety for you in the therapy process, as well as a sense of collaborativity. I take an integrative approach to healing, drawing on the following disciplines and treatment modalities: mindfulness practices, archetypal psychology, art therapy, play therapy, multiple somatic modalities, and nutritional psychology.

In a culture that is fast paced with heavy demands on our time, so many of us do not have safe spaces to reflect, feel, listen and learn about ourselves. This can lead to dis-ease. I believe that providing a warm, judgement free space to discover and untangle some of the thoughts, feelings and experiences that bind us can lead to greater freedom of choice, better health and overall wellness. We all hold the answers to the peace we are looking for.
