I believe therapy can be transformative. Not the kind of transformation where something totally new is created out of thin air, but rather the kind of transformation where what is already there gets to grow, expand, and take comfortable shape. For me, the goal of therapy is to be more authentically yourself and to feel comfortable in your own skin. It is to feel those intense emotions without having them take control of you, and without dampening your personality or passion. It is to have deeper and more honest and satisfying relationships because you are able to know and sit with yourself. It is to find what makes you happy. I help clients achieve these (and their own) goals by working collaboratively in a therapeutic relationship which allows the experience of being seen and listened to non-judgmentally, by employing creative ways to help clients explore different facets of themselves, and by helping clients develop skills to navigate emotions and relationships mindfully. I have experience working with clients who have struggled with everything from addictions to eating disorders to the normal suffering of everyday living. I love what I do, and I invite you to call me with any questions and to see if we are a good match for therapy.
