Self-discovery and self-recovery is a journey, it takes courage. Starting from birth we enter life with curiosity about ourselves and our capabilities; about the world around us, and how we fit in. Sometimes this journey is seamless, sometimes we get bumps and bruises. Yet regardless of where we are, we can all use some help on our Insightful Direction. It is my great privilege to work with anyone who is eager to understand why they are the way they are and what we can collaboratively work on to feel whole and understood.

It is important to find the therapist that feels like the right fit. We come with different personalities, ideas and tools about how to be helpful. My passion for working as a counselor is to help you live life from your solid and centered self.
As I hear your story, we identify your gifts/resources, find obstacles that keep you stuck and work together to release them. Sometimes that means being focused on your outer world and environment. Other times, it means turning inward to discover and let go whatever is keeping you blocked.
I believe life is meant to be experienced, enjoyed and have purpose. You are a unique individual and deserve an approach that is customized to fit your needs (no one-size-fits all). We are all much more than any label or diagnosis. Guiding me in my work as a counselor is a passion for helping people to find their voice, to feel more awake, alive and empowered.

If you are reading this, it is because you believe that you or someone you care about would benefit from therapy. I applaud you for taking this courageous step. I know that the search can seem overwhelming and the process daunting, so I make it a priority to create a safe, comfortable, and professional therapeutic space, no matter your difficulties, background or needs. I strive to create a trusting relationship and provide a listening ear, while also using best practice interventions to work with you on whatever brings you to therapy. I cater to suit each client, using an eclectic and empathic approach.

Perhaps you are just trying to get to know yourself better, to become more self-aware, to be the "best you". Sometimes you are dealing with a big adjustment like a loss, becoming a new parent, launching or changing your career. Maybe it is an ongoing or lifelong difficulty like a learning disability, chronic illness, self-esteem issues, or trauma. I understand that challenges and transitions in life can cause deep emotional distress and uncertainty. I am here to navigate with you on your journey to meaning and fulfillment. I consider it both a great honor and responsibility when you choose me as your therapist!

Helping people of all ages navigate the important relationships in their lives is something that has been pivotal in my work for many years.

From infant development to retirement and beyond, family life forms the matrix from which we all learn about how to be with and talk to others. There's no such thing as a perfect family, and no training manual for parenting, which means that all of us suffer from the bumps and bruises of learning to live with one another, imperfectly.

If and when we can figure out how to treat ourselves and others with dignity and respect, without shame and humiliation, we can enrich our connections to others and feel some measure of safety in the world. I'm grateful to guide you along that path.

I feel that finding the right therapist is so important to the quality of treatment and achieving success for set goals. I believe that it is hard to take the first step to come to therapy and it is therefore even more important to find someone you can connect to and feel comfortable with. My mission for all of my clients is to partner with them to achieve their goals and to empower them to obtain and maintain the skills in their own lives so that they eventually come to therapy to check in rather than to confront a crisis.
