“Working with the material of the Self prepares you for the stage.” – Martha Graham
I love the deeper things. Taking my cue from Carl Jung and Joseph Campbell, I developed the belief that therapy is “the hero’s journey”. The hero I speak of is you. It takes courage to journey into one’s own vulnerabilities. We’ve been taught that it’s dangerous and dark, a “forest of no return.” In this place you will encounter the “beasts” that hold you back, and triumph over them. I would be privileged to accompany you on that journey, keeping you safe on your path — determined by your goals — and collecting your strengths along the way. I’ll bring my training, intuition, and high regard for you, to prepare you for a starring role on your life’s stage.
In theory, I take an integrative approach, with expertise in psychodynamic psychotherapy, developmental psychology, and IFS (Internal Family Systems). I specialize in working with couples as well as individuals. With couples, I focus on communication — slowing it down, and focusing on emotions behind issues. For parents, my coaching is unique, combining not only discipline instruction, but adding individualized responses to your particular child — their developmental stage, and how to respond to their particular personality.
All are welcome in my comfortable therapy rooms, including any culture, LGBTQ+, and non-binary. I work to constantly suspend any preconceived notions and follow your truth, with unconditional positive regard and support.
