Message to clients

We reveal ourselves in the context of our relationships—as a species, we can’t survive without them. This is why, of all the tools in the trade, the most important one is the relationship between the therapist and the client. My therapeutic style is one informed by kindness and compassion, direct communication, clinical understanding, and life experience, along with a robust sense of humor! I love to laugh and firmly believe that in life we should never take ourselves too seriously!

I regard each client as their own best expert and see my role as one who joins and guides in the process of exploration and growth. Sometimes we need a co-traveler along our way, a skilled and compassionate individual to bear witness to our process of self-discovery. My approach is founded on our shared humanity, and I bring a warm and compassionate sense of “realness,” to our work.

I’ll work alongside you to help cultivate your resilience and achieve your goals in therapy. My goal is to facilitate your awareness and understanding of yourself, and to help you develop new strategies to improve the quality of your life. Together, we will embrace your humanness and vulnerability in a safe way to help you become more integrated, whole, and self-trusting.
