Therapy for Individuals 

“All I plead with you is this: make love of your self perfect.” 
   –Nisargadatta Maharaj
What I truly care about when meeting with you one on one is helping you learn ways to connect with your whole self and recover the vital resources needed to live a rich and fulfilling life that you may have lost.
 
There are various ways in which we lose ourselves through the hardships of life. I work with you to help you find these hidden or buried parts of yourself. These may be things such as your inner resilience, self-compassion, self-confidence, strength, hope, and self-love, to name just a few. It is my experience that through the recovery of these essential pieces we come to live a fuller and happier life.
 
My approach is a relational one, that is warm and compassionate. I work collaboratively with you to uncover your own inner wisdom and natural healing capacity. I use both traditional and alternative approaches to help facilitate your healing process. These include a diverse range of somatic (body-oriented) and mindfulness approaches. I help you work with the information stored in your body so you can expand and deepen beyond what can be expressed and healed through words alone. My approach is also strongly influenced by depth psychology which explores unconscious patterns and how early experiences shape us. 
 
I help people with a wide range of issues, including the following:
 
  • Chronic anxiety/stress
  • Recurring relational patterns
  • Substance abuse and addiction
  • Codependent relationships
  • Emotional reactivity
  • Depression and chronic sadness
  • Painful childhood wounds and trauma
  • Shame and self-esteem issues
  • Eating disorders/body image issues
  • Sexual Identity
  • Global overwhelm and eco-anxiety
 
I work with a diverse population of people, and am sensitive to the issues and needs of people of color and the LGBTQ community.
