There is tremendous healing power in being seen, heard, and understood in a compassionate, accepting relationship. I provide my clients a safe, empathic space where they learn to accept who they are in their journey towards who they are becoming. We all need a soundboard, a place where we can go to safely share our hopes and our struggles, where we can nourish our inner life and cultivate new possibilities.

We will collaborate and walk this path together. If you are seeking someone that will believe in you and help you believe in yourself, who will help you create life-affirming transformations, and who will be there for you when you need help, please connect with me.

 

About my practice: I often integrate practices from mindfulness, personality theory, attachment theory, and emotion-focused couples therapy. Depending on the client’s interest and need, I incorporate techniques from my own continuing education and clinical research.
