I invite you to come as you are.
I approach growth and healing holistically and appreciate you as multi-faceted-- feeling, thinking, physical, social, and spiritual. As we work together, we'll consider how various aspects of yourself can become more balanced to facilitate your overall experience of well-being.
I consider our collaborative therapeutic relationship an authentic meeting of equals. I understand you as essentially good, worthy, unique, and capable. I'll recognize your existing strengths and skills, and build on them for future successes.
We'll explore the interplay between what's conscious to you now and underlying dynamics that may not yet be fully conscious. We'll aim to bring subconscious dynamics to your fuller awareness.
Our therapeutic relationship will serve as a tool for learning about your relationship style and patterns.
We'll pay closer attention to your habitual thought patterns and consider how unexamined thoughts can sometimes trigger feelings and reactions that aren't so helpful for you. We'll consider expanded perspective for more balanced, useful views of yourself and others.
With mindfulness practice, you'll shift gears from "autopilot" to a more intentional curiosity and acceptance of what's happening in the current moment.
In working with couples, I draw from Dr. Sue Johnson's Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy.
I've been in practice as a psychotherapist since 2000.

How Psychotherapy Can Help
As we work together throughout your healing process, we'll attune to and nurture your fundamental strengths--your enduring resilience, your essential wisdom, and your creative spirit--as the foundation for addressing the real challenges you face.
I offer you a safe space for exploring and more deeply understanding your experience of stuckness, vulnerability, or conflict.
I'll help you to anchor yourself in validation and self-compassion, empowering you to find your voice and to practice new communication and coping skills.
From a wider lens, I'll help you see new choices for change--both practical and meaningful--that more fully align with your core values, sense of purpose, needs, and goals.
