In my experience, I have come to see that our psyches are made up of various parts that when not understood can leave us feeling confused, and with a vague sense of dissatisfaction. Through listening deeply, I can help you discern what the different parts of yourself are saying and wanting, and help you to address what may be blocking your fulfillment. Old wounds have a way of embedding themselves in the psyche and creating dysfunctional ways of thinking and seeing the world. I can guide you in untangling these patterns, and help you to mine the precious wise teachings inherent in any experience. Naturally, this process is not without discomfort, as facing limitations and mental barriers can bring into focus unacknowledged fears and biases. That said, I have great respect and passion for the therapeutic process and the healing potential in every person, and have witnessed profound transformations as a result of this work. With deep presence, bountiful compassion, wisdom, intuition, and personal experience, I create a safe, non-judgmental and caring space in which I can accompany you on this incredible journey of personal growth. If you want to have a different experience of yourself and your life, and you want to feel more peaceful and more content with yourself, I encourage you to begin the therapeutic process.

My approach is a blend of psychodynamic depth psychotherapy, attachment theory, and mindfulness approaches. Every person is unique, and I tailor my approach to fit the client. I believe it can be of value to directly discuss feelings about the therapeutic process. Also I know how it important it is to find the right match with a therapist. If I’m not the right fit, I’m happy to help find someone who is.
For some, it may be helpful to come to therapy more than once per week. This often allows the work to progress in a deeper way. This is something we can discuss together.
