There is a human tendency to desire, focus on, and strive for happiness.  We can forget that life holds a balance between the possibility for happiness, and the more shadow elements of life-- the challenges that cause pain and suffering. When we address the shadow and the more painful aspects in our lives, a deeper capacity for fulfillment can emerge. As a therapist, I collaborate with and walk alongside you in navigating through these challenges in order to facilitate personal growth, healing, and a deeper understanding of life's experiences.

The quality of the therapeutic alliance has been proven to be a stronger indicator of effective healing than specific modalities or interventions used.  With this in mind, my first priority is to build a strong, safe, non-judgemental, and trusting relationship with you.

I practice therapy with a psychodynamic perspective, exploring conscious and unconscious patterns, behaviors, and beliefs that impact one’s identity and relationships.  I integrate a trauma-informed perspective, attachment theory, cognitive-behavioral theory, and dream work, while paying special attention to and facilitating growth in emotional and body awareness and expression.

"The difference between a good life and a bad life is how well you walk through the fire"                                                                -Carl Jung
