My Approach to Helping

I believe that people have an inherent capacity to heal and learn new ways to navigate their lives, even when life feels stuck. I work with people who are experiencing a broad range of issues, including generalized anxiety, social anxiety, depression, stress, addiction, life transitions, and unresolved trauma. I strive to offer a safe container where you can explore at a pace that works for you. Through increased awareness, we can uncover our capacity to bravely open to the fullness of our experience and create change from a place of our own inherent wisdom and compassion.

My approach as a therapist is influenced by advanced training in body oriented (somatic) psychotherapy, mindfulness, cognitive behavioral therapy, transpersonal psychology and contemplative psychology. I have worked with people from diverse backgrounds in a variety of clinical settings for the past 7 years including work with Veterans & those living with complex trauma.

Therapy with me is collaborative & non-judgemental. Whatever you bring with you is welcome. It is important to find the right psychotherapist for you. Please reach out for an initial phone or in person consultation.
