How I work with clients

The therapy I offer places great value in opening imagination to the areas that have been clouded over or marked as forbidden territory. My style involves careful listening and direct communication about your struggles. We work together to create a mutual understanding of the patterns that play out in your relationships, your emotional life, your dreams, and your place in the world. I specialize in working with attachment issues and developmental trauma, depression, anxiety, behavioral and substance addictions, and sexuality. I have significant experience working with LGTBQ individuals – offering a holistic approach that addresses individual, familial, and cultural/systemic dimensions. I have a strong background in dream work and hold close to a faith in the natural healing that occurs when patient attention is afforded to the depths of experience. My passion for this work stems from helping people inhabit their life in a more embodied and meaningful way.
