"My Mission in Life is not merely to survive, but to thrive and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor and some style" ~Maya Angelou
In my work with individual adults and children I seek to understand with acceptance both the safely guarded parts and the more readily accessible parts that make you who you are in this moment.
From infancy into adulthood, relationships have a powerful impact on our sense of wellbeing in mind, body, and spirit. Maybe you were hurt in your family relationships as a child, or maybe you are struggling in current relationship to a loved one, or to people in your workplace. Either way, it is my job as your therapist to provide a safe enough space for you to explore these struggles in hopes to recover from them.
In my work, I strive to cultivate this opportunity for healing in relationship by being curious with you, and by attuning with an engaged presence and a mindful attention that can be rare outside of the protected space of psychotherapy.
While I am interested in helping clients uncover and heal the parts of themselves that have been squashed or carefully guarded as a result of fear, hurt or trauma, I also have a profound respect for the defenses that came to be. I trust the pace at which your heart and soul choose to reveal themselves to you and your process with me.
With compassionate curiosity, mindful inquiry, and a special attention towards the importance of authentic dialogue, I encourage individuals to reclaim their voice, empowerment, and a deeper sense of self worth with the goal of experiencing a fuller, richer, and happier life.
I draw from a broad range of modalities depending on clients' interests and needs.
