About My Clients

Something has shaken you emotionally, and you're struggling to find solid footing. It may have happened a very long time ago or just yesterday. Feelings of confusion, anger, sadness, or anxiety have been holding you back. This can be a very lonely and scary place. Psychotherapy helps couples and individuals repair and improve relationships while finding freedom, wholeness, connectedness, and purpose and meaning in life. I look forward to helping you get unstuck and start living again.

My Background and Approach

My specialized training in couples work, grief, and Jungian depth psychology helps you open the door to self-awareness and inner peace. Our collaborative work supports you in find meaning and purpose through curiosity, inquiry, and discovery. My goal is to help individuals and couples improve their interpersonal relationships while finding meaning in life and loss. We identify how your past impacts your today by addressing early attachments, fulfillments, and possible traumas. Individuals and couples thrive in this space of existential reflection, acceptance, forgiveness, and rebirth. I walk alongside you as a guide, while you explore your dreams, relationships, inhibitions, fears, desires, choices, and meaning in life. A safe space awaits you to discover your own answers and, thereby, reconstruct meaning in life, heal from old wounds, enhance personal cultivation, and improve your relationship to self and others.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe our earliest childhood attachments serve as the basis for our relationships and engagements with others. I also believe each individual has inherent strengths that enable one to grow and adapt through personal choices and responsibilities. Since childhood, I have experienced loss and existential crises and have found working with a psychotherapist to be very rewarding: We head into a storm and come out better humans. I’ve studied human nature, societal shifts, and cultural identities in order to facilitate positive community change. For two decades, I worked on women’s rights and environmental social justice issues facing rural and urban communities. In 2017, after much self-reflection and discovery, I realized that I wanted to return to my original studies of psychology, so I could engage fully with individuals and couples seeking to make meaning out of life’s many challenges, to grow as individuals, and to improve and enhance their relationships.
