Psychotherapy is a process of clarifying what is in a person's mind and allowing room for surprise, discovery, and revision of what is currently known. With deep respect for the therapeutic relationship and skillful listening, I bring compassion and understanding to our sessions, creating a safe, respectful and caring environment for exploring your most difficult issues. Effective therapy can be a gentle process, which is why we will go at your own pace and rhythm. When you are ready, we will go as deeply as you wish into the source of the negative self-beliefs that hold you back.

I specialize in depression, anxiety, grief and loss, chronic health conditions, complex trauma, dissociative disorders and EMDR.

I endeavor to be present with you, yet not get in the way of your healing process. I simply want to be a guide to help you connect with, and learn from, your inner wisdom. Together, we will lessen your psychological pain so you can deepen your enjoyment for life.
