Life is a journey and no matter how dire and frustrating the journey may look at times, I believe miracles are possible. Not those great big miracles that happen out there (although those are great too!). I believe in the miracles that happen when we learn to relate with ourselves from a place of love, compassion, and kindness. Once we are able to tap into that love and compassion for ourselves, we are able to attract love and kindness from other people in our lives. It is a slow, gradual process, and I would be honored to journey alongside you.

More Info About My Practice

The work I do is deep, beyond surface level, and beyond how therapy tends to look these days. That means we dive in deep and get to the heart of the wound. Once we get to the heart of the wound we lovingly and tenderly nurture it back to health, allowing for a gentle healing and release, in turn helping you feel more free to live the life you truly deserve. Spirituality and energy psychology are big parts of my practice.

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

I absolutely LOVE working with women who are struggling in relationships. These relationships might be with romantic partners (or lack thereof), coworkers/bosses, friends, in-laws, siblings, family members. I believe that our relationships are all external reflections of our own inner beliefs about ourselves and that by working on ourselves, we will then heal our relationship patterns. I work with women who are successful, high achievers or over achievers, who are also sensitive and know that there is a Power greater than them who can help them heal.

My View on the Purpose of Psychotherapy

My goal as your therapist is not to keep you in therapy with me forever. Although as human beings we are always a work in progress, my job is to help you look at your current relational patterns and how your past wounds/traumas have impacted the way you relate with others. Once you have been able to identify that, my role is to help you develop and nurture your own relationship with yourself so that you can heal your wounding from the inside out. Once you feel you have mastered that, my job is done and you get to go out into the world with a solid relationship with yourself. You are always welcome to return as life throws new situations your way.
