I offer psychoanalysis and meditation guidance. These practices have in common a recognition and appreciation for how much of our happiness or suffering is conditioned by those thoughts, feelings and actions that take place outside our awareness and conscious intentions. These unknown aspects of ourselves continually impact our sense of who we are, including our moods, mental and physical health, job satisfaction and relationships with others. I work with clients to increase self-awareness, emotional understanding and self-acceptance - qualities I believe are needed to support the changes we want to make in ourselves and our lives.

From all appearances, you've got it so good. Lying in wait, just under the surface, are the life traumas that wounded you deeply but were never addressed. And those secrets have you turning to substances more and more. One weekly drink becomes a daily bottle, and you're making excuses to your boss, your friends, your family. Do you want to quit but you don't know how? I can help you find your way out of this despair and into the life you want. You can do this. Let's talk.

I provide an opportunity for individuals, couples, and/or families to tell and shape their stories using verbal and visual means. Creativity is not only an emotional outlet, it also provides a window into another part of our selves and has the power to create profound change.

Finding our place in the world is a life-long endeavor. We are all striving to optimize our lives and the various roles we play within relationships, work and life. Influenced by psychodynamic thinkers, I encourage clients to explore their early experiences as a means to understand their current life situations and relational dynamics. Transitions in life, relationships and self are jarring and difficult, yet it is through these destabilizing moments that we are given the opportunity to make a change.

As a therapist, and human in general, I am passionate about creating space for the stories and emotions that are so often pushed away, hidden from view, and disavowed. I believe that to be seen and heard in these tender places can be a profoundly healing experience, even (and especially) when there is "nothing to do about it," other than bear witness and grieve. An important piece of this process is moving towards a way of being that centers less around achieving, perfecting and “doing” and much more around “being.” Being present, being messy, being perfectly imperfect and ok with slow processes and uncertainties.

Hello! I work with adults struggling to manage stress, loneliness, or work-life balance. Many of the clients I see report concerns over managing work related stress, maintaining social or romantic relationships, or increased feelings of depression, worry, anger, or hurt. Often, my clients are doing very well in one or more areas of their lives. It's often within just one or two areas where they feel the most "stuck." It's from this strength-based perspective that I provide therapy.

If you are browsing through this website then you're most likely trying to find help with something in your life that you've been struggling with for for years. Maybe it's depression or anxiety and you need help trying to manage it, someone to hold it with you. Perhaps you have a hard time staying in a relationship for any length of time? Or maybe you're holding onto the secret of sexual abuse as a child or teen and have never told anyone. Sometimes things shatter and we don't know why, but it does. Life shatters us. I would love the privilege of walking with you. We can do it together. You don't have to do it alone anymore.

Welcome! Relationships anchor our lives as we experience life in relationship. Experiencing interpersonal and relational conflict is a shared human experience and it occurs at all stages of life. It is not an indicator that we are weak or unworthy, but a reminder that we are human. Freedom comes when we realize that we have the power to make choices that shape the life we want to live. If things in your life are no longer working for you, you can choose to start doing something different today. I welcome the opportunity to learn more about you and the experiences that have brought you to this unique point in your life.

This natural unfolding helps to create spaciousness so that we can begin to navigate through the less than comfortable places within ourselves, looking at them squarely and experiencing them as they are, without repression or indulgence.
