My Approach

You can change your life. I view my role as guiding that process, to help you identify and process things that might be getting in the way of you becoming the best version of yourself. My work is based on hope, and a strong belief in every person's ability to change, grow, and heal themselves. I tailor the therapeutic experience to the client, but generally find success with cognitive behavioral interventions, mindfulness, narrative, experiential, and emotion-focused process work, influenced by Zen philosophy of acceptance, non-attachment, self-kindness, and non-judgment, and I feel strongly on therapeutic collaboration with clients. Social justice is an important part of my therapeutic orientation and philosophy, and I prioritize working with marginalized populations, including LGBTQ and people of color. Current rates: $150 for individual sessions (50 min) $200 for couples (50 min). Sliding scale available for those with demonstrated need.
