My Ideal Client

People come to therapy for all sorts of reasons. Perhaps you struggle with unwanted behavior patterns or difficulties in your relationships. Maybe you’re challenged by overwhelming emotions or struggle to know what you’re feeling at all. Or maybe you’re having trouble adjusting to new circumstances or making a big decision. These problems in living and many others may respond well to psychotherapy.

My Approach to Helping

Studies confirm what I know to be true: the best predictor of therapeutic success is a secure, attuned therapeutic relationship. This means I meet you with compassion and listen without judgment, assumptions, or expectations. I respect your pace and honor the need to feel safe when sharing your story.

My Values as a Therapist

At the foundation of my work is the belief that every human being has an innate ability to thrive. I offer acceptance, empathy, and my own authenticity to enable you towards growth and fulfillment. I believe the capacity to build the life you want is already within you. My role as therapist is to help you clear the way.

Techniques I Use


  • Depth Therapy External link

    Ever feel like you don't understand or can't explain your own choices or behavior? Depth therapy looks beneath the surface to explore underlying beliefs, feelings, and unmet needs that drive your daily life. We look at how early experiences & relationships shape the ways you show up today. I help you explore how habituated behaviors and thinking patterns that once served you might be holding you back. Depth therapy is a supported process of self-exploration that can lead to real, lasting growth.

Issues I Treat


  • Personal Growth External link

    My goal is to help you deepen your relationship with yourself. Therapy offers the opportunity to slow down & explore what’s going on beneath surface-level content. I might ask you to pause and notice what’s happening in your body or mind as we talk, or to describe the feelings that comes to you. Bringing awareness to your here-and-now experience in this way is known to promote stress relief, emotional stability, and increase capacity for connection with others.

  • Loss or Grief External link

    Grief is a process, not a pathology. Grievers need a space where they're welcome to feel all their feelings without expectations or judgments. I specialize in helping the bereaved to make sense of the often difficult, sometimes overwhelming feelings and thoughts that arise in the wake of loss. I also work with those who support grievers-- partners, extended family members, friends-- to navigate grief stewardship.
