A Little About Me

Life is complex. It is natural to feel overwhelmed, stuck, and confused. In therapy we can meet our human complexity with kindness and curiosity. Through a creative process we open up a pathway to loosen stuck places and move toward deeper flourishing. This can lead to a greater sense of meaning, belonging, creativity, and self-acceptance.

In this process I bring a warm and compassionate presence to engage deeply with you in your struggles. I utilize wisdom from Eastern and Western psychology as well as the body, often incorporating mindfulness, parts work, dreams, and play. I trust in our innate capacity to heal. Therapy is a means of discovering our own unique resilience. I will be deeply committed to walking beside you and offering support where this work leads.

If you think we may be a good fit I am happy to offer some time to chat about any questions you may have.
