Great to meet you!

The life path that brought me into this profession began in childhood. I felt so deeply both joy and pain, and I needed to learn how to encounter the world without being consumed by it. In my 20s I read a popular book, The Road Less Traveled; it had a profound impact. The first sentence is, “Life is difficult.” I recognized this truth in my own life, and I worked in my own therapy to heal, grow, and develop the discipline and perseverance — the practice — to be completely present to my life.

A bit about my approach to therapy

My therapeutic approach combines Solution Focused Therapy, cognitive-behavioral strategies, mindfulness, and positive psychology theory and techniques. When we work together, I create a compassionate connection with you. We can work on “fixing what’s wrong” while we also “build what’s strong” in your life.

What you can expect from our first session

Working with me, you will learn how to look at your self with compassion, to tolerate distress, create peace, find joy, and to heal.
