​​Perhaps everything that frightens us is, in its deepest essence, something helpless that wants our love”  ~Rainer Maria Rilke


Therapy can be a very effective approach to getting back in touch with your fundamentally thriving self.  

The way I see it, we are born fundamentally whole and self-accepting. But as we interact and bump against the world around us we develop strategies that help us keep the tender parts of ourselves safe from harm. Many of these strategies are essential to basic survival, while others unfold into patterns that cloud our capacity to relate to ourselves and to others in an authentic and productive way. 

On our journey together, whether it be in child therapy, adult therapy, or couples counseling, our goal will be to engage as authentically as possible. Through the use of tools such as dialogue, mindful inquiry, somatic awareness, or play (as is often the case with children) we will work to help you integrate unresolved experiences, traumas or inner conflicts.​​
