About My Clients

It can be hard deciding you want help and are worthy of it. Whether your challenges arise from trauma, relationships, life transitions, loss, parenting, or work, ultimately what you may be seeking is a change in your relationship to yourself. By inviting insight into the past and respect for the present, I cultivate compassion for self, and help clients, including couples, try out new ways of being in the world while acting consistently with their most cherished values.

My Background and Approach

I will help you discover a new way to be with your emotions, in both the trials and the triumphs. I offer curiosity and warmth in a therapy relationship that can be your catalyst for change. For over fifteen years I have provided direct clinical services, supervision, and program management in a number of diverse treatment settings, including VA hospitals, private hospitals, community mental health clinics, inpatient and outpatient clinics, and private practice. My career has afforded me the opportunity to work with, learn from, and be inspired by a wide variety of individuals reflecting an incredible range of human experience, cultural diversity, and wisdom. I am grateful to each person who has placed their trust in me.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Honoring strengths: Let’s acknowledge and build on your strengths and the steps you have already taken to create lasting change. Values-based: We will work to identify and clarify what values matter most to you, which we will use to motivate and guide therapy and healing. Healthy risk-taking: We will examine and deepen your understanding of your own history, approaching the “difficult stuff” with care and compassion, and being open to experimenting with new ways of being in the world. Science-informed: Effective therapy adapts evidence-based approaches to your unique style of relating. Authentic: Fostering an atmosphere in which people of all identities feel accepted and comfortable sharing their lived experience, I welcome the opportunity to connect to your story from a real place within myself. Creative: Embracing spontaneity, we will consider experiential creative-based processes, including metaphor, meditation, humor, reading, writing, drawing, and music.
