My approach aims to help people who feel stuck. I believe that even when we feel stuck, we are constantly changing. We may not be changing the way we want (like becoming more stuck), but we are changing nevertheless. As a result, every moment is a new opportunity to continue old patterns or try out something new. I will work with you to better understand how it is you feel stuck, how that has impacted your life, and where you want to go from here. Together, we will use those understandings to explore the possibilities you see in front of you and keep an eye out for others that might be hiding in plain sight.

We often get so accustomed to our patterns that we assume they are teaching us the same lesson as when they first started. I will invite you to revisit your patterns - by talking, playing, or feeling through them - with a more open perspective to consider whether there might be a new lesson to learn about what you need to feel more comfortable within your own skin and your surroundings. I will then invite you to practice however you want to be living in a safe and supportive environment.

More Info About My Practice

My typical session length is 45-60 minutes.

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

I enjoy working with people who feel stuck in patterns of anxiety, anger, depression, chronic pain, or ineffective relationships. For each of these patterns, the expertise I contribute is listening to your story, understanding what is important to you, and empowering you to pursue whatever change is most meaningful to you. More than any skill building (which I do offer), what my clients find most satisfying about our work is a sense of how their "symptoms" have made sense in, and even been an important part of, their lives. When this happens, there is no more need to fight against frustrating patterns, which frees up tremendous amounts of emotional and physical energy to put toward more rewarding endeavors.
