My Approach to Helping
I believe that connecting on a heart to heart level is what brings us to life as human beings. Often we have not learned to communicate what we need and feel in a way that can be heard and understood. Whatever theory we use as therapists only works if we can make contact with each other. I listen for what your heart is trying to say; I listen for the pain, the frustration, the passion, and the need to feel embraced by the other. From there together we find your language and your voice.

How Psychotherapy Can Help
The process of psychotherapy involves discovering your deeper self in the presence of a caring, non-judgmental witness who is involved in embracing your internal world and reflecting it back to you. The witness can illuminate patterns with you that get in the way of your communicating with the most important people in your life. Having this partner in self-care provides the safety to speak your deepest truth and to meet your most authentic self.
