Therapy is an opportunity to heal and to expand. To be seen and heard as you are, and to explore the possibilities of who you might become. Our work together begins with you: your unique circumstances and goals. I create a safe and supportive space for you to express feelings, identify obstacles (both in and out of your control), clarify goals, and ultimately create a more liberated life. If I do not take your insurance I can help you bill your insurance company, and in some cases I can offer a sliding scale fee.
My experience as an actor, writer, and artist helps me to join you in the creative process of self discovery. Awareness of the self is a great power that, when harnessed, leads to mental and emotional freedom, versatility, and options in your life and relationships.
