Do you like being in a codependent relationship with your therapist for years? How about taking ever increasing doses of medication with little effect? Would you like to have a functional relationship with an experienced health care provider who can treat you completely (body, mind, and spirit)? Someone who you can ask about caring for your aging parent with dementia to helping you explore your kinkiest fetish? This is a participatory integrative care practice for those who value results.

I always tell everyone the most important part of therapy is the connection with the therapist, so I encourage you to take time to find someone who you are comfortable with and feels like a good fit for you. Having a space where you can be yourself is so important! You’ll find that I am genuine, compassionate and engaged in the therapeutic process. I view therapy as a collaboration so I will pose thoughtful questions and challenge you to think about things differently to progress towards the goals you have. I look forward to the opportunity to work together to optimize and improve your life.

We live in a busy world where we are all distracted by work, phones, and various activities. Therapy offers you an opportunity to stop all that for a moment. Moments are all we have, and if you are moving through them too fast, or without noticing, you are at risk of depression and anxiety. You may feel robotic and like you are constantly striving but you are unsure why. We all have inner worlds that collide with our outside experience. In therapy we can take the time to explore both and build an understanding that can allow you the space to feel more satisfied in life.

Deciding to enter into therapy can be one of the most difficult steps that many people make but with the right therapist it can also be one of the most rewarding and best decisions that clients often report that they have ever made. Investing time developing insight into your feelings, relationships, and behavior patterns can be transformative.

I believe that finding a therapist that creates an environment where you can accomplish these achievements in a safe and non-judgemental space is vital. The rapport and alliance that you develop with your therapist is equally as important and your trust in them in truly a gift that you offer them each week that you enter into their office for a session.

To know oneself is not easy. Therapy is a way to understand what acts as triggers or obstacles to live life closer to the way you want to, have the relationship you long for, figure out what you really want, and gain a sense of freedom and agency to make decisions that can forge a path you feel is your own.

If you’re here you may be wondering how therapy can be helpful and if I’m the right therapist for you. Thankfully you’ve taken the first step, which is usually the hardest. My primary goal is to create an environment that is accepting, warm and safe, while also challenging you to find new perspectives and likely make some changes in your life. We will work together with the goal of exploring different aspects of your self in order to uncover why you may be feeling stuck or unsatisfied. 

Do you want closeness but have trouble finding the words to ask for it? Are your habits/behaviors getting in the way of your relationships now? Put simply, I help individuals and couples rediscover intimacy and connection. This can include the relationships we have with others but also ourselves--whether you're seeking to better your relationship with your partner or to food and/or sex (and everything in between) I'm here to provide a warm, non-judgmental space that is both accepting and thought provoking.

I believe in therapy being both active and safe which means I will consistently show up for you to help you meet your goals and live the life you want.

I believe in the collaborative process of therapy, and work to build a safe, supportive environment for client’s to process their stressors, deeper traumas or insecurities, and explore aspects of future opportunities. I want clients to look forward to sessions without concerns around judgement or right and wrong, and use the space as practice for wherever their journey is going.
