“The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance.” – Alan Watts


Navigating life’s challenges can be like trying to juggle flaming torches while riding a unicycle—it’s chaotic, risky, and let’s face it, a bit absurd! Perhaps in seeking therapy you hope to learn how to tame those wild circus acts and turn them into a spectacular performance of resilience and growth. Your hope for therapy is not just valid, it’s essential! It shows that you’re ready to invest in yourself and that you believe in the possibility of positive change. I believe in this possibility for you as well! Think of it like this – within the therapeutic process you will have a skilled coach who will not only helps you maintain your balance while riding life’s unicycle and juggling those flaming torches, but will also help you build an impressive bag of tricks along the way. 

Circus analogy aside, taking this step towards therapy is a brave and powerful choice, and it speaks volumes about your strength and desire for positive change. It demonstrates incredible courage and self-awareness. I am here to acknowledge and affirm that. Know that you’re not alone, and you’re deserving of support and understanding as you navigate life’s challenges. I’m here to support you, honor your journey, and help you do this with dignity and curiosity. Together, we’ll create a safe and nurturing space where you can explore, grow, and discover the tools you need to live a more fulfilling and authentic life. 

What I would like you to know about me is that I am an openhearted and direct communicator with a great appreciation for exploring the profound depths of my client’s existential experience. My approach will be grounded in humor, curiosity, and a deep respect for your dignity and humanity. In our sessions we will work together to simultaneously address those challenges you present with and to celebrate your basic human goodness and marvelous potential. Whether you’re seeking to understand yourself better, navigate life’s transitions, or find greater fulfillment, I’m here to support you. Together, we will deconstruct life’s complexities with warmth and authenticity and in a way that honors your story and helps you foster a deeper understanding and appreciation of yourself. 

My approach is rooted in a diverse blend of therapeutic modalities and philosophies that include: 

  • Family of Origin Trauma: Understanding and healing the deep-seated impacts of early family dynamics. 
  • Attachment Focus: Exploring how early attachments shape your current relationships and sense of self. 
  • Existential Theory: Delving into the fundamental questions of existence, purpose, and meaning. 
  • Family Systems: Examining how family interactions and structures influence your life. 
  • Buddhist Themes: Incorporating mindfulness, compassion, non-attachment, and present-moment awareness into our work. 

If you choose to work with me, I will strive to create a therapeutic space where you feel seen, heard, and valued. Let’s work together to uncover your strengths, heal past wounds, and cultivate a life that is rich with meaning and joy. If this sounds like a good fit for your goals, please reach out!
