My Approach to Helping

I work with people of all different backgrounds, but their futures all have something in common: they're more aligned with their hopes, dreams and values than when we began.

What are you after? What's missing? Where are you trying to go - and what's stopping you from getting there?

If you're here, you can rest assured you are already on the right track.

There only is and every will be ONE YOU. Only one you who can feel what you feel, see life the way you see it, and share the gifts you have to give. But that doesn't mean you have to go it alone.

You can count on me to listen deeply, and help clarify your perspective with questions that are sometimes hard. I'll share insights and ideas that may surprise you, and I'll genuinely want to hear your response! Our work will be deep, safe, evocative, inspiring, and supportive to create lasting change in your life.

More Info About My Practice

I practice therapy from a holistic, whole-self perspective. While this may look like talk therapy, I will incorporate as many other methods and modalities as you're open to and I'm adept at.

I rarely "diagnose" and much prefer to utilize systems like the Enneagram and Meyer's Briggs to better understand and support you. These approaches offer the opportunity for reflection and insight, without applying judgement or pathology. Most of us don't need any extra help seeing what's "wrong" with us; it's what's right that too often gets buried or lost.

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

I love working with people who are the brink of living lives better than they ever imagined - and often don't even realize it.

Whatever you're dealing with, it's an inroad to you best and brightest self. Although no one's saying it will be easy, it's worth it. And I'm here to help.
