Where does self esteem begin? It starts with being truly yourself in the presence of an accepting, attuned, caring other. This is at the heart of therapy, which simply means "healing". If you struggle with relationships, finding work you love, or you are feeling depressed, hopeless, or life feels empty, you are probably dealing with wounds to the self. I believe that being heard, seen and understood is the first step towards healing and finding meaning in life.

My unique gift is the ability to be present and compassionate with painful feelings in order to metabolize them into a meaningful understanding of self and identity. I also can keep up with and contribute to individuals with a very quick mind and process, which is why I love to work with gifted, creative sensitive individuals.

My own experiences as a writer/actor/poet help me to understand the mixed blessings of the need to create. My specialties include the emotional needs of gifted and creative adults, healing from codependency and from traumatic breaks in relationships.
