Dr. Karl Meninger once said, "Love cures people - both the ones who give it and the ones who receive it." This reflects my reasons for becoming a psychotherapist.

Doing my part to develop a "good fit" with everyone I meet is my first priority. This opens the way for building mutual trust and partnering. Within this relational context the work of therapy can begin. Finding a psychotherapist who feels like the "right fit" is an important first step to entering psychotherapy.

My therapy practice is a holistic and integrated model; that is, I integrate traditional psychotherapy with positive psychology, somatic experiencing therapy, energy psychology, and spirituality. The people who become clients come with a variety of problems in living. However, anxiety, depression and relationship problems are the most prevalent.

At the foundation of my practice philosophy arr my personal values. Some that I hold dear include, closely evaluating any modality offered to clients. "I first experience a process personally before integrating it into my practice." Also, I believe continuously working on myself through weekly clinical supervision and advanced clinical training helps to keep my approach fresh and expansive."

Also, for times when attending therapy is difficult, i.e. inclement weather, traveling, moving to a new location, sessions using Face Time or Google Chat are an alternative. For more information about this. please call me.

More Info About My Practice

Once the process of psychotherapy begins, the love and compassion Dr. Meninger speaks of provides a solid foundation for encountering the players in our internal world, even those we have tried to keep hidden. As the capacity to understand and accept expands, disowned parts feel safe enough to be known. In the process, a deep reservoir of inner beauty and strength becomes apparent, perhaps for the very first time.

I am aware of how blessed I am to be witness to a mysterious process - the unfolding of another human being.

How Psychotherapy Can Help

Two great reasons for seeking psychotherapy are to clear blocks that keep you from moving ahead in your life, and/or for adding new dimensions to the quality of your life. When we experience difficulties, restoring our sense of inner balance can happen easier and faster when we open to receiving help in a time of need.

"Be patient toward all that is unresolved in your heart.
And try to love the questions themselves."
...Rainer Maria Rilke

How My Own Struggles Made Me a Better Therapist

Everyone has a story that seems to be at the root of who they are. For me, it is "just knowing" as a child that there was something wrong about me, but what? I didn't know. While I couldn't know it then, a felt sense of wrongness was the root that ultimately blossomed into the fullness of my adult being. My journey has had many twists and taken many turns, and it's still unfolding. At its heart is my personal outcome - being a Clinical Social Worker and psychotherapist.
