I am fascinated by the resilience of the human spirit and believe that we all
share an inclination to move toward wholeness. At times, we suffer the
painful effects of living a life that is fragmented, or lacks a sense of
meaning and purpose. Perhaps you’ve been carrying around memories of
painful experiences, deep fears about the future, or even shame that
leaves you paralyzed in your journey toward establishing wholeness and
meaning in your life?
I commend you for taking the time to consider options for healing. The
decision to initiate therapy is one of the bravest choices you can make. In
effect, you are deciding to take responsibility for your reactions and choices
that impact the course of your life and this often feels like a great effort.
While the work is challenging, I think you’ll come to discover that having the
guidance of an intuitive, warm, and non-judgmental partner on the journey
will be liberating and empowering.
Clients frequently share gratitude with me for helping them finally learn how
to do the work of changing their lives. They complete therapy with a better
understanding of how their brains, nervous systems, and relational
attachment systems work. They utilize more effective communication
practices, which helps their relationships flourish. They often share that
they have a better understanding of their emotions and needs and feel well-equipped in caring for those unique needs going forward.
Above all, I aspire to hold a safe space for you to gain an understanding of
the root causes of your suffering, and to learn (often through experiential
exercises) how to identify and harness your inner strengths, clarify your
values, and develop skills that will support your living with more freedom
and intention. Often this means working through the underlying causes of
anxiety, depression, trauma, and grief. Sometimes it means navigating
difficult relationship or life transitions, parenting difficulties, identity
disturbances, and existential concerns.
I am known for being honest, curious, patient, humorous, warm, down-to-earth, and completely human. I truly love this work and often drive home at the end of a therapy day with tears in my eyes, in awe of the human spirit and its arc toward resilience.
