"In order to complete our amazing life journey successfully, it is vital that we turn each and every dark tear into a pearl of wisdom, and find the blessing in every curse.” ~ Anthon St. Maarten
Often people seek therapy in times of crisis or life transition. Whether you are dealing with a personal loss such as a breakup, an illness, a divorce, a death of a loved one, or you are in the midst of a challenging life transition, I am here to provide a safe place where you can explore your thoughts, feelings and intentions. I believe that therapy is a collaborative process and together we will see how today's difficulties can be avenues for your growth and self-discovery. I'm curious about you and what is most important in your life. I will encourage you to take steps to live the life you imagine and desire. My approach will offer you tools on self-compassion and how to stay with difficulties long enough to learn from them. In our sessions, we may use mindfulness techniques that can help you stay with yourself, look inward and slow down. Therapy is a place where new insights will emerge as you connect to what is true for you. I offer a space where you can take a personal refuge from the busy pace of daily life and turn inward and face the hard edges and fully see, feel and listen to "what is." In this place of healing, harsh realities can be softened as you learn to hold yourself tenderly. As your therapist it is a great honor to bear witness to your growth and healing.
