"I take a holistic approach to therapy with children, teens and individual adults, looking deeply into the interplay between mind, body and spirit. I work collaboratively with clients to explore socio-cultural considerations, how we fit or don't fit in that context and our opportunities for growth. We'll sort through to find and examine unconscious patterns and get creative to generate alternatives that put you more in line with your goals and life purpose. If you don't know what those are, we'll figure that out too."

"Choosing a therapist can be intimidating, especially for people of color. We might find ourselves wondering if our therapist will "get" what it's like to be us. I believe each person, couple, and family brings with them a set of unique experiences, values, and goals, often influenced by various cultural factors. Perhaps you are an individual looking for a safe space to explore your identity, including race, ethnicity, and gender. Maybe you are in a cross-cultural relationship and want help navigating tricky topics productively. It could be your family is in conflict around generational differences and opposing values."

"My goal is to help people make ho-hum sex good, and good sex great! I love working with couples looking to rekindle their fire or make it burn brighter, and also with individuals looking to deepen their understanding of their own sexuality and in turn become an even better lover and partner. Dating, foreplay, and exploration of fantasies are just a few exciting areas of my work. I often work with low arousal, painful intercourse or erectile dysfunction, mismatched erotic styles or desires, as well as interpersonal challenges like difficulty communicating needs and wants."

In my experience worry, resentment, fatigue, addiction, chronic sadness or conflict are not signs of weakness, but signs of having tried to handle too much for too long, alone."

"I will interrupt you a lot, that is what meditation does. It interrupts our stories about ourselves and the world around us. I will also listen to you, deeply. That is another way meditation helps, we learn to listen to ourselves deeply. The word akrasia means 'out of control' and is used to describe the way we continue to do things that we know is not in our best interest, or don't do things that we know are in our best interest. Most people feel relief just to know there is word for it. The cause of akrasia is said to be a lack of information and meditation gives us access to the information we need to change. "
