Do you desire greater connection, clarity, creativity and fulfillment? You CAN thrive in love, family, work, play and service in line with your values and goals. Let’s create a safe and secure relationship in which you can reveal strengths and vulnerabilities, explore new ideas, and practice new skills as you move toward your goals. My approach is insight- and action-oriented, attachment-based, trauma-informed, culturally sensitive, empowering and tailored to your needs. Troubling thoughts, emotions and behaviors, unresolved trauma/PTSD, family of origin/relationship issues, or challenging life passages need not limit you.
I flexibly personalize therapy for your situation, history, culture, skills and goals. Everything is built on warmth, kindness and empathy. I employ evidence-based therapies (EMDR/ACT/CBT/DBT), self-compassion, deep listening, mind-body practices, expressive arts, stages of change, Trust-Based Relational Intervention, etc.
You can live with greater intention, inspiration and integrity. You can enjoy the journey and your companions more. Trauma and your past can inform you, but not define you. Come to me for clear & creative counseling. I specialize in adolescents, young adults and adults, including parents, who want to live with greater authenticity and connection.
