About My Clients

I see individuals, couples and children. I believe what we become aware of, we have the ability to transform, if we choose. I also believe in the power of the stories we tell ourselves, as having deep meaning guiding our lives. If we can become aware of what is driving us, the stories, we will have a lot of influence on the rest of our lives. I enjoy working with anxiety, depression, ADHD and neuro-divergent challenges, relationship challenges, mens work, and those unnamable burdens we all have.

My Background and Approach

Therapy is a balance, with one side being uncovering , sometimes deconstructing and "breaking down" certain things, and on the other side is discovery, building up or "breaking through". I draw from kaleidoscope of therapeutic modalities and well-informed lineages. Jungian, Eco-therapy, Somatic-informed, trauma-informed, mindfulness, narrative, EFT, CBT, IFS. Using these modalities as needed, and in a way that is particular to unlocking insight personal to you for transformation, we then work on what you want your life to be .

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe the heart knows how to heal, and so does the inherent wisdom of the body. If given the right tools, we find the path thats right for us. It takes deep listening, deep compassion and radical acceptance, as prerequisites for our hearts to truly meet life, with courage and excellence, unafraid to make mistakes. It is all here already, we are whole, it’s just that we must find it, first. I also will add its not easy to be seen, for all of ourselves. It may not be something we’re use to. But it is in being witnessed that waters the soil in which we grow. And then in turn it is ourselves we get to be there for, where our world starts to make sense and filled with love.
