Were your concerns present before, but exacerbated due to recent events? I support people in navigating these types of challenges and coming into greater clarity, connection, self assuredness, ease and peace about the past, where you are now, and where you want to go. Reach out for full list of topics that I work with.

My Background and Approach

I am very personable, and take a client centered, compassionate, and integrative approach to therapy; incorporating mind, body, spirit as well as considering community and cultural contexts to help clients engage in authentic and deep work. I love using creativity, somatic and mindfulness practices to support clients in their self discovery and healing. I work with children (8 – 12), teenagers, adults and older adults, including individuals, couples, families and groups. I find that each stage of life comes with a unique set of challenges and gifts. Topics I often work with are: Depression, stress, anxiety, life transitions, grief/loss, trauma, relationship issues, parenting, teen issues, self-care, coping skills, illnesses, injuries/chronic pain, caregiver support, issues related to aging, Alzheimer's disease.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I draw upon my passion for art, psychology, spirituality and nature to support individuals, couples and families to engage in authentic and deep work. I believe that in bringing consciousness and intentionality to the important moments in our lives we can create a life that is utterly profound, beautiful, deep, connected and meaningful. Helping people to recognize, reflect on, integrate, heal and celebrate these moments is what I do. I am committed to the destigmatization of mental health, the dissemination of tools available within the evolving field of psychology and contributing to a society in which quality wisdom and services can be made accessible to all people. This is truly a profound moment to be a human. I believe that we are all in this together. When I’m not seeing clients, I love spending time in nature, hiking, sharing delicious meals with friends and family, writing and dancing.
