I am a psychodynamic, relational, and experiential therapist. I treat a range of problems: mood disorders, psychosis, and other forms of distress; I specialize in treatment of trauma. My work with clients is integrative, humanistic and client centered. I help clients uncover, understand, and metabolize their deeper motivations and emotions. As they become aware of their subconscious, they discover clarity and choice, and their lives begin to change.

I use a compassion focused approach to therapy & aim to hold a warm, inviting and safe space for every client I see. From here, the natural healing that is part of the human psyche may be uncovered, unfold and work it's magic. I seek to help clients untangle the networks in their mind, differentiate them & notice how they are linked thus allowing integration to happen. When it does, people are able to be more adaptive, flexible, & creative; they have more energy, ease & resilience.
My aim is for clients to take away a sense of possibility. They become attuned to parts of themselves that they didn't know before, or that had gotten lost. Clients are able to understand themselves differently, to honor their experiences, find strength within & wisdom to determine what their course of action is right for them.
