About My Clients

My clients are exploring who they are and who they want to be. Maybe they're stuck in patterns that are no longer serving them, or realizing that the voice they hear in their head sounds a lot like their mom's and could be a whole lot nicer. From babe to elder, in all the transitions and rhythms of selfhood, my clients are discovering their place in the world and how to make it a gentler, kinder and safer space by learning to ask for what they need, get rid of what they don't, and be here now.

My Background and Approach

I know that not all who wander are lost, but are paving their own path. Without judgement and with empathy, humor and genuineness, I'll meet you where you are and create a safe space in which you can figure out where you want to go and who you want to be when you get there. I've worked with clients of all ages, individuals, couples and families. I've worked with clients who are dealing with their own cancer or that of a loved one, in the moment or years after the fact, when it felt safer to process from a distance. I have intimate experience of parental loss, divorce and blended families, and anxiety and panic attacks. I'm an Existential Humanist looking through an Attachment lens at how our relationships with self and others affect what we feel and believe about us and them, and how we experience insecurity, safety, and life. . I believe that my job is to sit with you with patience and curiosity to explore and look for answers to the questions you keep asking yourself.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe our expectations of love and ourselves are formed by our early relationships. We can react or respond to past hurts by letting them change us for the worse or strengthen us. Let's figure out how your past has influenced your present, for good and for bad, learn the lessons you were meant to learn, and find the tools to be your best and strongest self in the future. I believe in the importance of our relationship as we work together to explore your specific needs and expectations and to develop the language with which you can ask for what you need and want, both from yourself and from those with whom you are in relationship. That includes me. Therapy can be hard. No question. So let me create a safe space for you to explore your inner narrative to make it a kinder, more constructive conversation. Let's bring our genuine selves to session and do the work together. With patience, undivided attention, empathy and humor, I will be with you in the work.
