My Ideal Client

I’ve been lucky to work with adults of every age group, struggling with various challenges. Many live with constant feelings of shame and regret. Some find themselves unable to honor and advocate for their own wants and needs. Others feel timid and fearful engaging with the world, and find themselves lonely and isolated. And many clients battle with painful, traumatic memories from their past.

My Approach to Helping

An old mentor once told me the purpose of therapy is to increase awareness and increase choice. I’ve often found that as a person becomes more aware of their hidden and neglected inner world, new choices and opportunities, new ways of being a human being in this world open up to them. I’m always excited and honored to play a role in that process for another person. Much of my work involves increasing awareness, and then walking through the doors that new awareness opens. In our work, we may examine questions such as... Are you living by rules that no longer serve you? What emotions are being avoided, and what is the cost of this avoidance? What choices are you making, without realizing that you are choosing? I can help you to face these and other questions, make peace with uncomfortable emotions, revise old beliefs and rules, set healthy boundaries, learn new ways of relating to yourself and others, and move towards a life that feels engaging and meaningful.
