Carl Jung said: “It is what you are that heals, not what you know.” I believe that the journey of self-discovery in the safety of a therapeutic container is exactly that – getting to know and deeply appreciating our true and authentic self, even when that essence may be covered by trauma, hardship and suffering. It is this uncovering that many who experience psychotherapy to be transformative and healing refer to as a “re-birth,” a coming home to and and unfolding of who we truly are.

           

Whatever brings clients to therapy – be that a painful breakup, a recent loss of a parent, a birth of a baby, a decision to marry or leave a partner, a difficulty connecting with their teen, worry and anxiety about their health, or difficulty in their intimate relationships – I would be honored to help them make sense of it, deliberately, with much self-love and compassion.

 

My hope is that as you are reading my words, you can already sense that my approach to psychotherapy is that of a curious, kind and compassionate inquiry into the unique experiences of my clients. I believe that we are all traveling on a path and that we have infinite capacity to heal old wounds, to live our best lives and to thrive.

           

My clinical approach to psychotherapy is eclectic. I  fuse many different theories and modalities to understanding the human psyche. Among them are Humanistic/Existential, Solutions-Focused, Psychodynamic/Relational, Emotionally Focused, Family Systems, Cognitive-Behavioral, Transpersonal and many more. My presence is rooted in life experience and empathy that, frankly, cannot be taught in any graduate program or textbook but is acquired while navigating through life.

 

I have a particular interest in working with adults, children, couples and families.
