I provide a warm and nurturing environment where clients feel safe to explore their deepest inner selves. Whether addressing adult or parent-child issues, I emphasize the importance of working on one's own emotional and nervous systems as a first step to creating change. My intention is to help people "heal", not just "deal". I use talk therapy and experiential techniques such as Gestalt, Somatic Experiencing, and mindfulness practices. I have found that working with deep emotions embedded in the "felt sense" of one's experience is a powerful tool leading to transformation.

Clients who benefit from therapy with me are often individuals who have felt misunderstood, marginalized, or even harmed by the mental health system. Whether because of sexuality, gender identity, spiritual beliefs, neurodivergence, or non-mainstream relationships, they have found therapy to be unwelcoming, unhelpful, or unsafe. No one can heal in the absence of emotional safety, so my first priority is helping you establish safety with me. This means engaging as fully as possible with your preferences, values, and needs, and trusting you to be the expert on you. You're always steering the ship in your therapy--I am only a guide.

Folks that come to me for support struggle to manage the thoughts and feelings that lead to relapse and mental health crises. My experience tells me that these folks feel disconnected from themselves and their community. Establishing connectivity to their friends, family, and their broader social setting is crucial for wellness and for healing. Everyone has the goal of contentment and peace of mind, and substance abuse more than most challenges undermines the fulfillment of these basic needs. To heal and prosper, substance abusers and trauma survivors need to practice self care in the bio psychosocial-spiritual way of life.
