It’s difficult to be a human, with all of the ways the world pokes and squashes us, telling us that we aren’t good enough or that we have to be something different. I love being a therapist and helping people unearth their precious and magical selves which may have been buried under years of pain and mistreatment. There is so much to discover about ourselves, why we suffer and how we can get to a freer and more satisfying way of being.
I work to make therapy a safe and gentle space where you can grow at your own pace and get the support you need. It’s also a place where your darker and scarier feelings can be safely worked with and understood. We work together to help you craft the tools to shift your experience and feel more of your wholeness and your power. Therapy can be an important part of your journey that brings about powerful change.
For all types of couples (romantic, friends, parent and adult child) as well as families, I really enjoy holding that sacred container for you to explore the confusing or infuriating stuck points that are sabotaging your relationship. It can be a safe space for each individual to be heard with respect, and for you to clarify your feelings and intentions. Together we will learn how you can reduce conflict, communicate better and free yourself to focus on the loving place you once shared.
Call or email me for a free, 30-minute discovery session to see if it feels right for us to work together.
