It takes courage to be looking for a new therapist. This may be your first time starting therapy or you are ready to continue the process after a new life challenge has come up.
You are dealing with unexpected anxiety or sadness
Life turns out to feel harder than expected
You feel like something is missing in your life or your relationships
I provide psychotherapy to adults and couples, using an integrative, mindfulness-based approach to therapy, combining evidence-based Western models with the wisdom of ancient Eastern traditions. Over the past 14 years, I have felt honored assisting many people finding new ways to navigate life transitions,major losses, relationship difficulties and challenges related to pregnancy, childbirth and parenting.
"If nothing ever changed, there would be no butterflies"
In addition to regular therapy sessions in my office, I offer walk and talk therapy for people that process emotions more easily while moving and being outside.
My expectation of you is that you will take on an active role in being curious about your inner world. I hope you will try to wholeheartedly embrace any challenge and change that comes with any therapeutic process. I fully trust you have all you need to feel better and my role is to help you connect to your inner resources, wisdom and strength.
Finding a person you trust and connect with is one of the most important predictors for successful therapy outcomes, so take your time finding the right fit. If my words resonate with you and you think I can help you, please be in touch.
