I believe that human beings have an inherent longing and need for wholeness and balance, which is our natural state of being. However, we sometimes encounter damaging or traumatic events or long term stress that interrupt this natural state. When we are imbalanced, we develop psychological and/or physical symptoms, and we begin to use ineffective coping mechanisms. The good news is that with the right tools, these struggles can be used as a path back to the wholeness we seek. Having worked with clients for over twenty years, I know firsthand the power of using our difficulties to point the way towards healing.

Sometimes life confronts us with experiences that are disruptive personally or in our relationships resulting in feelings of depression, anxiety, or loss. While these feelings are normal, they can present challenges in terms of maintaining our sense of well-being and our ability to function well in our daily lives. In my view, the purpose of therapy is to help clients understand the source of disruptions, help them learn strategies for coping with and working-through difficult emotions, and become aware of triggering experiences. In this way, clients can learn how to repair disruptions and thereby restore their sense of well-being.

Through empathetic and attuned presence, my goal is to provide a safe and comfortable space for people to process their experiences, name their feelings, uncover the roots and accept what arises. I support folks creating change in their lives and (re)shaping habits, patterns, and relationships to aid their healing.

Many people struggle with sleep - they can't fall asleep, or stay asleep, don't get tired or their mind is racing at night, keeping them awake. After trying everything, even medications, sleep remains elusive, leaving them exhausted, irritable, and unfocused during the day. Some people with sleep apnea can't stand their CPAP mask. Many people who wake with nightmares don't know there are treatments available. Most people with narcolepsy and idiopathic hypersomnia can't find a mental health professional who understands their sleep disorder. My clients want to improve their sleep problems and get back to living their lives.
