"I offer therapy, guidance, and inspiration for individuals seeking to live more authentic and empowered lives. My clients may look good on paper, but still wonder: "Am I enough?" For all of you grappling with ambient anxiety, finding yourselves sleepwalking on the internet, unable to fully occupy your bodies or lives, I promise: There is more. Through deep mindfulness, attention to the unconscious, work with the body (that reveals the unsaid), hypnosis, and psychoanalysis, you will land inside of yourself, at the root of your questions. From here, there is a lighted pathway, which we can walk together. "

"Do you want more ease, joy, and meaning in your life? Therapy can help. Aside from having the obvious goal of relieving anxiety, confusion, or pain and suffering, therapy can profoundly enrich your life. The more we befriend, understand, and accept ourselves just as we are, the more we can respond to the challenges that come our way from choice rather than habitual reaction. To facilitate this I offer an openhearted, authentic presence along with mindfulness-based tools that promote self-awareness, self-compassion, and the process of healing."

Even though your life looks great on the surface, you feel chronically anxious, as if it could all fall apart at any moment. You'd like to be more authentic, but you worry about what would happen if other people knew the "real" you. Sometimes, you wonder if you've spent so much time faking it that you've lost sight of your true self altogether."
