I like to think of therapy as a big exploration that allows all the feelings and emotions you are having to come in fully without judgement.  

I often say to clients, "Your feelings are your feelings and you never need to apologize for them.  But you do need to feel them."

That can often be the hardest part for some people, but it's truly the most important.

Without feeling, there is no healing. 

Having a safe, compassionate space with a really good listener to welcome and explore your feelings can make it a lot easier. 


We also get curious together about what is happening for you and connect the dots between what has happened in your past that may be contributing to what is happening now. Once you become aware of unconscious patterns, you make them conscious.  I cannot overstate the importance of awareness in helping to break old, familiar patterns and create big change in your life.

Another big part of our work together is bringing in the practice of self-compassion.  Life can be really stressful and scary and we need to give ourselves a break sometimes.  Most people have no idea how hard they are on themselves. I love pointing that out to my clients so they can begin a practice of giving themselves some grace, kindness, and love.  This can make a huge difference in your life.

I also provide my clients the tools and techniques they may need to help calm their nervous system. These are excellent tools to have in your back pocket during high moments of stress and also to help deal with future stressors or anxiety. 

A great modality I teach to my clients is Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) also known as Tapping. EFT is a form of acupressure that has been scientifically proven to reduce cortisol and help with anxiety, stress, and many other issues. I like to think of it as adding a physical component to talk therapy. 


I work with individuals and couples.



The Guest House

This being human is a guest house.

Every morning a new arrival.


A joy, a depression, a meanness,

some momentary awareness comes

as an unexpected visitor.

Welcome and entertain them all!
Even if they're a crowd of sorrows,
who violently sweep your house
empty of its furniture,

still, treat each guest honorably.

He may be clearing you out

for some new delight.


The dark thought, the shame, the malice,

meet them at the door laughing,

and invite them in.


Be grateful for whoever comes, 

because each has been sent

as a guide from beyond.
