My Approach to Helping

25 years ago, laying in a hospital bed after being admitted through the ER, doctors declared I was ready to go home, but my body was telling me I was not. While the incident that brought me there was beyond my control, advocating for myself was not. I spoke up and got the care I needed. Since that day I have been passionate about understanding the ways we can direct our own lives, and the tools that help us heal.

Every day we encounter multiple external factors outside of our control that impact our lives. I work with you to identify, explore, and strengthen the aspects of your life that we DO control - the relationship between your body, your mind, and your everyday lifestyle choices. I help you shift your focus from fighting against things that are beyond your control, to identifying and cultivating the things you have power over in your life.

By exploring, understanding and cultivating the relationship between our bodies, our minds, and the simple lifestyle choices we make every day, we begin to shape a life that integrates those elements within our control. We shift from being reactive in our lives and struggling against our own life circumstances to harnessing those factors we control and allowing us to be proactive, decisive, and forward moving in life.

More Info About My Practice

Warmth, clarity, curiosity, kindness, gentleness, precision - these are the baseline values of my work. It is, in fact, kindness and gentleness towards our experience that allows us the fearlessness to look at things as they are, and the confidence to move towards where we want to be.

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

I really love working with the issue of "feeling stuck." Whether it's stuck at work or in a relationship, stuck getting healthy or stuck in anxiety, I help people identify where and how they are stuck, and then explore how to become unstuck - how to be that person that can move fluidly through life.

The Duration and Frequency of Therapy

I very much trust you when it comes to issues of duration and frequency. Therapy works best when there is a trusting relationship between the two of us, so I often will ask that you commit to four to six weeks of weekly sessions to build a trusting relationship that will provide the basis of the work that we do together.

I have an online scheduler that allows you to schedule your appointments at your convenience.
