Background

Welcome
Navigating through our human journey can be daunting, and everyone can benefit from support along the way. My role as a therapist is to help you gain more insight into the nature of your inner world and a greater perspective of your outer circumstances so that you can become empowered to create the intentional and meaningful life that you truly desire. With compassion and deep presence, we will identify unconscious patterns that are limiting you so that you can gain the awareness and tools needed to create effective changes for yourself.

I work with individuals who are motivated to heal and grow. In addition to addressing a range of issues, I specialize in working with unresolved trauma, spirituality, and the LGBTQI community. My approach is holistic, integrating the mind/body/spirit, with expertise in Transpersonal Psychotherapy. Please see my website for details.

Finding the best therapist who is the “right fit" for you is essential. I offer a free initial 15 minute phone consultation, and invite you to call me so we can discuss your needs and determine if we are a good match.
