I provide mindful and compassionate psychotherapy to adults, adolescents and couples who are suffering or are seeking to make changes in their lives.
With whole-hearted presence and care, I seek to provide a warm space for you to be as you are without fear of judgment.
Working from a holistic perspective, I integrate mindfulness, self-compassion, body-oriented techniques, and cognitive and behavioral therapy approaches. I also incorporate the latest in trauma theory into my work.
Using these tools, I’ll help you slow down and notice the dynamics, beliefs, and behaviors that cause you suffering. By helping you cultivate deeper self-awareness, I support you to release the harmful patterns that no longer serve you.
My approach is active, engaged and supportive. I am not interested in labeling you or in looking for “what’s wrong with you.” I am interested in holding a caring space for your experience, and I am here to support you in finding a way to live with more ease and satisfaction.
Working together, I can help you gain more access to your innate wisdom, resilience, and capacity for growth, and support you in (re)connecting with your underlying wholeness.
