My Approach to Helping

I offer a compassionate, non-judgmental, therapeutic environment where my clients can feel welcome and safe. This setting allows clients the opportunity to express themselves deeply, and relate to their authentic self. I utilize an eclectic approach, based on the different needs of my clients. As a trained Depth therapist, I believe that healing can happen through accessing the realm of the unconscious. This process of exploring thoughts and images can be daunting, but also immensely satisfying and life changing. Creativity is an important part of my practice as it is a unique way access material that lies bound up in the psyche. I practice a blend of theories that best serve my clients and help them find their inner voice.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I attended Pacifica Graduate Institute and received a MA in Counseling Psychology with an emphasis in Jungian Psychology. My Master's thesis focused on the process of creativity, inspiration, and overcoming writer' (or artist's) block. I have worked professionally in the arts as an illustrator, woodworker, and currently perform as a singer/songwriter. I also have had past experience owning a small business, and understand the stresses and challenges of running an organization. As a survivor of chronic back and hip pain, one of my specialties is male pelvic floor dysfunction.
