My approach is rooted in over 20 years of therapeutic work in community mental health and psychotherapy. I bring an authentic presence to our sessions that incorporates my extensive training and experience working with a variety of situations that have caused suffering, trauma, and pain, and that I have witnessed also ultimately lead to resilience, healing, and positive change. These include depression; anxiety; long-term chronic stress; caregiver or activist burn-out; relationship distress; motherhood identity, including being childless by choice or circumstance; and loss and grief, both recent and unresolved. To unravel the self-destructive threads that bind us to oppressive ways of living, I will help you unearth your voice and self-identity by hosting a space where we can crack open your story and explore it to get to the true grit of who you are and what you desire. Dreams, images, metaphors, emotions, and the body are invited into the dialogue to serve as tools.
