As a Certified Hakomi Therapist my offering is a Somatic Experiential Psychotherapy modality that is gentle, non-judgmental, and compassionate; a form of assisted self-study where the client studies his or her responses to explorations in a mindful state of consciousness. We become aware and touch upon the very organizing experiences that have been a part of our habitual life - the patterns that no long serve us. We increase clarity, creativity, confidence and awareness and break through obstacles towards ease, connection and vitality. I am available for phone or online sessions.

We all go through hard times, and having someone in our corner can help us navigate them. Youth and adolescents especially need a space to connect and process through their relationships and struggles. It is in this safe space that children and youth can begin to build skills and correct behavior that may seem concerning or perplexing.

Do you want a fresh outlook? Are you looking for a new perspective? Do you want change that offers realistic hope? I have been privileged over the past 20 plus years of helping people address change. We all want to avoid addressing personal change. In many ways it is like musical chairs: We cling as long as possible to the perceived "safe" place that we already know, refusing to loosen our grip until we feel sure another safe place awaits. Together we will work to establish attainable goals that are best suited for your life.

My practice is based on the premise that any issue presented in therapy has deep emotional and psychological roots. At times these roots are recognized; mostly, not. The clients who achieve the highest degree of success in terms of resolution of presenting issues, personal growth, life satisfaction, and relationship enhancement are those who are willing to overcome resistance and emotional discomfort in order to root out the painful, dysfunctional origins of their presented issues, The courage, persistence, and resilience displayed during their therapeutic journey serve them well.

My therapeutic approach is best described as eclectic--a unique and constantly shifting balance among the various humanistic schools. Therapy involves multiple levels of interrelated change: emotional, intellectual, physical and spiritual. In order to be effective it must revolve around client needs and desires; decisions about counseling goals and practices are therefore developed jointly. I greatly enjoy helping others as they grow, change and heal-both internally and in relation to the people and institutions which fill their lives. I welcome challenge, value collaborative relationships with clients, peers, and community alike, and I maintain a firm belief in the resiliency of all.
