Are you feeling sad or anxious but put up a good front? Are you on the outside of your own life looking in? Are you struggling to achieve the results you want? Do you have trouble projecting into the future? Together you and I will figure out what is really going on. There is a reason for those feelings and we can uncover it. I see & hear you.
I enjoy working with clients who want change and may just need a little encouragement to get there. I will help you push through those self limiting beliefs to get you where you want to be! I mix humor together with a directed approach to create a trusting and supportive relationship. If you've felt like your therapist didn't "get you" in past then you'll my non-judgmental all affirming approach.
I am most interested in embodying wise love in relationship. The sentiment is simple enough, but the reality requires ongoing reflection, learning, healing, attunement, humility, and ever-deepening wisdom. I help individuals, couples, and groups move through stuck patterns and develop capacities to embody wise love and freedom.
I am honored and privileged to join my clients on their journeys. A successful therapy experience is two-sided: a high level of motivation and commitment on your part, along with my experience, expertise and support. My clients tend to be ready and willing to take deep dives inward to explore themselves. Examining perspectives can lead to deeper understanding and thus allow you to make the shifts you desire. My relationship work often does not need to be long-term. Offering virtual in VT, PA
Being a human is not easy. We search for meaning, purpose, all while the world spins a web of uncertainty-making it difficult to feel safe- leaving us feeling anxious, hopeless, and confused. My goal as a therapist has always been to support my clients, both teenagers and adults, in looking at their lives, and their experiences, and encouraging them to find their meaning and purpose in all of the noise.
Perhaps you are going through a rough patch and could use support and guidance, or perhaps you’ve struggled for many years and would like to see things differently, live things differently and are ready explore counseling. Perhaps you are struggling with loneliness or isolation. Many of my clients identify as queer and/or neurodivergent. I have a particular interest in and understanding of older adults, nearly half of my clientele are 70+ (ask about my weekly Care Group via Zoom).
