Being and becoming who we are meant to be can feel daunting. The journey may feel impossible, filled with obstacles that make living inauthentically feel like the only option. As a psychotherapy, I support the process of living true to one’s nature. I help my clients escape the unhealthy behaviors they use to avoid pain.

I view the journey as sacred, and treat it accordingly. Relational Gestalt therapy is a form of deep engagement between client and therapist. It focuses on healing the whole person—body, mind, emotions, and spirit. Through non-verbal interactions such as play, verbal dialogue, working together in a safe space, and conscious interactions with others, we develop a healing relationship. I teach my clients to observe, not judge, themselves. My clients build relationships with the hidden and unique aspects of who they are. This allows them to build nourishing, healthy ways of relating to themselves, to their environments, and to others. In so doing, they lead healthier, more vibrant lives of greater fulfillment.
