"Most of us lug around a suitcase full of our thoughts, feelings, family history and past experiences and have no idea what's in there. Our current responses to and experience of life come from the contents of that suitcase. Together in therapy we gently unpack it. We will see what is working for you, what needs more support and what has served it's purpose but no longer works. I work collaboratively and am curious about all the things that make you who you are. I am particularly interested in working with people who feel misunderstood or unimportant."

As a therapist, my goal is to foster a space for you to explore what you want for yourself and your life through introspection, healing, and acceptance of self. I offer an interactive style of therapy that emphasizes personal insight and self-compassion in order to identify harmful thought patterns and behaviors. Together, we will find an approach that helps you achieve your goals, whether you’re looking to heal from past experiences or cope with present challenges."

Since the unconscious ripples into all aspects of life, I have found that relational therapy addressing unconscious motives can help with most psychological difficulties.

"I believe relationships are the foundation of our emotional experience--this includes both the relationship we have with ourselves and the relationships we have with others. Often, feeling disconnected from our self can cause us to feel disconnected in other areas of life, such as our career, family, friends, or hobbies. I believe healing occurs when we increase our understanding of ourselves and our relationships, and use that awareness to cultivate new experiences. In my practice, I can help you learn about yourself and support you in stepping outside your comfort zone to make the personal changes you want to see in your life."
