I offer comfort and guidance to people struggling to find their way through a hard transition or uncertain situation. Sessions with me are easy, but engaged and lively, and I strive to create a safe, inclusive environment. I am highly influenced by Humanistic Psychology, Carl Jung, and both Eastern and Western philosophies and spiritual traditions. As such, I regard suffering as a natural and expected part of the human condition, not as evidence of a personal defect.

I believe therapy is an investment in your own life; a courageous risk to find healing, peace, hope and joy. Because we cannot change the past or predict the future, nor can we remove uncertainty, change or pain from the human experience, my goal is to help you discover ways to respond to whatever life places in front of you. I do so in a non-judgmental, collaborative way that focuses on building skills and self-compassion.

Imagine...feeling more connected and better able to communicate with your child. Perhaps the daily stresses have been piling up and your family needs support to re-balance. Maybe you are worried about your child and you need an experienced therapist to help problem solve. I have worked for over 20 years with children under stress due to school issues, divorce, family crisis, separation or deployment. I utilize a combination of play therapy, mindfulness and CBT to promote changes in thinking and behavior. Play therapy can especially benefit traumatized children, as it allows them to process the trauma at their own pace.
