About My Practice

Do you sometimes feel worthless, sad, or helpless about changing a situation?  Life throws curves, such as a death, or job or relationship loss. Even natural changes like aging can upend our sense of balance.  This can be confusing, overwhelming, and stressful.  At these times, the supportive presence of a therapist can help make sense of what is happening and allow you to slow down, notice what you feel, and choose what to do next, rather than being stuck in habitual reaction based on the past.  As your therapist, I can help you take a loving look at your patterns, become aware of unhelpful self talk, or allow fuller expression of your feelings through art, movement or words.  New learnings can be integrated into a self that is stronger and more resilient.

I will work with your goals, being practical as well as theoretical.  I am conscious of your time and money and want you to get value from your experience.
