I am an experienced Internal Family Systems therapist with training and practice in meditation.

If you have been looking for a dependable sense of well-being in your life, knowing that how you feel and function in the world isn’t what it could be or what you’d like it to be, I offer professional and compassionate help. Your feelings and behaviors make sense and healing is possible. I use Internal Family Systems (IFS) (Level II trained) that is directed towards helping you become your own source of healing and growth. Each of us has parts that can be healed and a Self that is wise and compassionate. Trauma, attachment wounds, self-hate and feeling insecure about ourselves can frequently be at the root of our struggles.

I help you learn the tools for your ongoing well-being. My approach is collaborative and respectful. Whatever your symptoms or concerns, or if you simply yearn for a better life, call me to discuss whether our working together might be a good fit.

I bring warmth, humor, engagement, caring, honesty and authenticity to our work and take time to build a safe place where you gain understanding and develop skills to improve your life. I like to have an initial phone consultation to see if we are a good fit. I look forward to talking with you.
