I provide a safe container for founders to explore the psychological ups and downs of entrepreneurship. I believe we all have an innate capacity for healing and I help my clients become more present and connected with their bodies, truth, wisdom, hope and resilience. With an integrative approach, centered in body-based psychotherapy, I use a combination of Somatic Experiencing, Mindfulness, Internal Family Systems and Interpersonal Neurobiology. I also approach healing from a systems perspective, seeking to help my clients increase supportive structures that deepen their sense of community and belonging.

People are naturally resilient with the right support. Therapy facilitates the healing process by helping you deeply understand yourself, with compassion, so your presenting concerns can be effectively addressed. My approach varies to fit the style and presenting issues of each client. Typically, I take a holistic approach combining in-depth traditional talk therapy with more recent, empirically-validated and present-focused approaches. I sometimes act as a life coach, helping clients change behaviors and discern choices that lead toward the lives they envision. My predominant focus is guiding deeper exploration that results in real inner transformation, personal fulfillment, and learning to love yourself.

Change is inevitable. So what happens when the consequences of the change are so negative they severely impact our lives? We sometimes feel stuck, unsure of what direction to proceed. In my practice, WalkinTalkinTherapy, I provide an avenue to address these changes by combining the simplicity of walking outdoors with talk therapy. Advocates of the combined approach say that being active during the session helps patients relax and open up - scientists have long known that a workout can temporarily boost serotonin levels and improve mood, the latest research shows that exercise can have a deeper and more lasting effect.

Being a human is hard. Fulfillment and meaning can seem just out of reach – promised, but not delivered. I’m not here to tell you what the point of life is. I’m here to support you as you decide the point for yourself, and make meaning out of your relationships, experiences, and emotions. I practice from a humanistic, existential perspective, emphasizing and helping you learn from your emotional experiences, holding vast, secure space for the BIG human experiences, and helping you become the author of your own narrative.

You catch yourself repeating “it’ll get better, it’ll pass,” but it hasn’t. You’re hoping the tension in your chest, your sweaty palms, and your clenched jaw will finally stop but nothing has changed. You think, “I can just handle it on my own”. Googling “stress”, “overwhelmed”, and “anxiety”, brings more questions than answers. What would actually work to help me find relief? After a few tries, you realize deep breathing isn’t enough. You realize it’s more challenging than you thought. You don’t have to figure it out on your own. You don’t have to feel this way forever.

I enjoy working with children and adolescents of any age. Listening to children and teenagers is so important as they often can tell us what we need to know to support them. I use both talking and play to facilitate connection and communication. Interpersonal experiences affect our relationships and the way in which we interact with others. I have a strong background in family systems, school collaboration and developmental and attachment theory which is instrumental in my work with clients. I also work with families to facilitate communication when there is a disruption in the family system due to divorce or adoption.

My primary focus is to help individuals identify any areas in their lives that may be causing hindrances to their happiness, personal growth, and overall well-being.

Many years ago, I heard a professor make this foundational statement of truth about counseling–human beings are wounded in relationship, so it is in relationship that we heal. Through the intervening years, in practice as well as in life, I have seen this maxim play out again and again–it is relationship, fundamentally within ourselves, that serves as the agent of healing, growth, and positive change. As a clinician, it has become a primary focus of my practice to establish and maintain a relationship of compassionate curiosity, caring, and trust within which my clients can explore and heal the pain that brings them to therapy.
