Beginning therapy is not easy. Exploring one's difficulties requires resolve and courage. Feelings of apprehension and reluctance are understandable and common. But, therapy is a long-term investment in yourself and in your desire to live a fuller, more rewarding life. I work with clients dealing with grief, sadness, anger, depression, loss and anger.

Some clients are experiencing feelings of isolation, and are unable to find fulfillment and connect in relationships. Various clients are dealing with the residual impact of past wounds. Not all my clients are in crisis; several are merely seeking to better their day-to-day emotional well-being.

I listen and endeavor to have the strongest understanding of each client. As a therapist, I practice from my heart and work from a place of deep genuineness. At its core, therapy is about developing meaningful contact. I believe the bond that builds between therapist and client has special healing powers.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

In addition to my traditional psychotherapy training, I am also a certified Somatic Experiencing (SE) Practitioner. SE is a modality of healing trauma through bodily awareness, and is being used all over the world. SE is the result of 40 years of research by Dr. Peter Levine; this approach to therapy builds upon the belief that we all have an innate ability to overcome trauma.

I also have extensive training as a sex counselor and educator. I know that talking about sex can be challenging, but sexuality is an important form of human expression. I strive to create a safe and comfortable environment to help you explore this important topic. I also work with people experiencing challenges with gender expression.
