About My Clients

The people I seem to work best with are those who are interested in exploring and understanding their inner life. They are open to new ways of seeing the world and willing to experiment with new ways of being. Creative types (and those who are willing to explore their creativity) will probably find me helpful, as will those who are searching for meaning in this crazy, mixed-up world of ours. As a LCSW Supervisor, I also supervise LMSWs toward obtaining their clinical licensure.

My Background and Approach

I take a creative approach to therapy, which means we listen to the imagination. We explore your dreams and the images you carry inside, and find ways to give them a voice. Sessions are a place to experiment with bringing awareness and expression to parts of yourself that you might otherwise ignore, creating new possibilities for engaging with life. The therapeutic relationship should be trusting and compassionate, which means challenging in the right way. I will never push you to do anything you don't feel ready for, but rather invite you to step beyond your comfort zone. My goal is to create a space where you feel safe to explore the possibility of a life of authenticity and freedom.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I'm also a senior teacher in the Pacific Zen School. I don't consider Zen a religion or system of beliefs, but rather a spiritual practice and a way of experiencing my life. I'm fine with leaving Zen out of our sessions altogether, as well as exploring how meditation practice can deepen my clients' existing spiritual practice. I'm also a musician and amateur writer. I find that creative arts of all kinds can be a powerful vehicle for discovery and healing, and encourage all my clients to find some way of giving expression to what they find inside.
