Many of us encounter times in our lives when we need support and guidance to find our way. I provide a thoughtful, compassionate and attentive presence in which you can make sense of yourself, your past, your present and your future. I believe when we are truly listened to, we can heal our deepest wounds and develop our capacities to their greatest fulfillment.
In over ten years as a psychotherapist I have helped people overcome a wide variety of issues, from depression and anxiety to career indecision and addiction. My job is to help you find the unique intelligence that operates underneath your greatest struggles. No two people are alike, and I strive to build a relationship with you that allows your whole self to flourish.
I am trained in Gestalt therapy and Developmental Somatic Psychotherapy. As a Somatic psychotherapist, I pay special attention to the non-verbal aspects of our experience. Our bodies hold the imprints of our earliest relational experiences. By integrating body-based explorations into talk therapy, we uncover early psycho-physical blocks and find new ways of thinking, moving and relating.
