My Approach to Helping

Life can be hard. When life challenges and demands come up, it is easy to feel overwhelmed, worried, tired or sad. Therapy is a space where you can break away from that and heal. It's a space where you can be free of judgment and criticism and just be who you are. It's a space where you can have good days and bad days and both are not only accepted, but embraced. You can let go, be you and, in that space, eventually a transformation can happen.

As a therapist, I am non-pathologizing and accepting of where my clients are in the moment. I take a holistic approach in my work, which means that I consider the mind, body and spirit. Along with various forms of traditional talk therapy, I use guided imagery, mindfulness, sand-play, and body-based therapies.

My main intention is to be sure that you sense we're a good fit. If I'm not the right therapist for you, I will do my best to support you in finding someone else who is, so email, call or visit my website to feel it out.

As an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist, I provide my services through the Center of Psychotherapy, Spirituality and Creativity, a non-profit. I am supervised by Dana Eugenia Locke, LMFT (#33846).
