People say I have a calming presence and that they feel safe with me. I feel honored when someone trusts me enough to share a hurtful or even shameful experience. Just imagine if the part of you that is in discomfort could feel it is being listened to and feel safe enough to release its burden. Wouldn't that be a relief? This is how healing begins.

More Info About My Practice

Trauma of neglect or abuse, relationship troubles, job troubles, negative thinking and beliefs that make you dislike and sabotage yourself are all common themes I encounter in my practice. I like to say that I specialize in problems of love and work. We need both to live happy, fulfilled lives.

My Role as a Therapist

You are front and center, the focus of my attention. I listen, I ask questions, search for patterns and themes in what you tell me, and make observations to help you understand yourself and get out of your own way. I rely on my intuition and training to guide me.

How My Own Struggles Made Me a Better Therapist

I was afraid to take any risk in my life, afraid to trust my gut, my intuition, to make the changes that were necessary but felt too unfamiliar, too far outside my comfort zone. Step by step, I will help you build your confidence and courage so that one day, you too will be ready to take that leap of faith.
