“At the end of life, our questions are very simple: Did I live fully? Did I love well?” -- Jack Kornfield

Transformative psychotherapy for individuals and couples.

Welcome

 

Do you sense a "real" you inside that yearns to be fully known and expressed in your life, but feels constricted?

Are you often in emotional pain, anxious or overwhelmed by life's demands, but confused as to why, or how to make it better?

If so, please know that you are not alone. Many of us have times when we feel stuck in the mire, disconnected from life and our own vitality, unable to find our way out. At these times it's wise to get help, to find someone who can help you contact your innate urge toward health and wholeness, and who can offer you guidance and support to help restore you to yourself.

How I Work

I bring years of experience, the best of my professional training, and a warm, engaged, insightful, presence to our work together. When you come into my office you can expect to feel safe, supported, understood, and respected. I work with the whole person--thoughts, emotions, body, spirit-- right in the moment, so together we can be curious about and get to know the old patterns that emerge in these ways, and understand how they conceal a more vital, authentic response to life and relationships.

This powerful process will allow you to release these patterns and live a more loving, satisfying life. Your confidence in your ability to change will grow as you experience deep regard. You have everything you need within you to heal, and you can.

We are wired for growth and healing, and we are wired for the resumption of growth when it's been interrupted. We have a need for the expansion and liberation of the self, the letting down of protective barriers, and the discovery of our genuine, true self. I believe that the key to the success of this journey is the establishment of the therapeutic relationship as secure base. You will experience me as a real person, a genuine presence in the room with you. Together we will create an environment of warmth, safety and curiosity from which to explore and transform old patterns. Let's begin!

I help those who suffer from childhood trauma, or who struggle with anxiety/ depression to move out of hopelessness and experience increased resilience and expanded well being. I work with couples to help decrease reactvity and create more loving, vital, satisfying relationships. I also work with spiritual practitioners who want to address the emotional stumbling blocks that can hinder progress on their chosen path.

If you're looking for support and guidance through a challenging situation or you're ready to move in a new direction in your life,  I look forward to working with you.
