Psychotherapy is nothing less than a mythical journey. The hero within you has made a choice to go within, confront personal and relationship challenges, and emerge a more complete self. As a person-centered psychotherapist I provide a golden thread, keeping you safe on your path, determined by your goals, and collecting your strengths along the way.

“Why do you have the golden thread?” you might ask. As a trained professional psychotherapist, I draw on theory, experience, collaboration, and a growing body of scientific evidence that shows us not only how the brain gets stuck in unhelpful patterns, but how assist you in resetting these patterns. I strive to really listen, truly understand your culture, and your strengths, and work hard to keep you as the focus of the transformation and growth.

I work with a diverse range of clients, including children, adolescents, families, adults, couples and groups. I draw from a broad theoretical model, but have clinical expertise in mindfulness and meditation, exploring relationships, both past and present, and addressing unhelpful patterns.

I draw upon multiple theories to include: play and filial therapy for children, dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), systems and structural theory for families, imago and Gottman theory for couples, a variety of addiction recovery models, depth psychotherapy, narrative therapy, psychodevelopmental psychology, inner child work and spiritual direction.

I specialize in working with:

  • trauma
  • emotional distress
  • suicidal feeling
  • self-harm
  • sensory issues
  • anger problems
  • relationship distress
  • life transitions
  • goal achievement
  • parent coaching
  • prenatal/postnatal concerns
  • transgender support for all ages
  • sex therapy
  • midlife crises

My own journey has provided me with a wealth of life experience to draw upon. As I lifelong learner, I’m known to always have a book nearby. I have worked with individuals of all ages who have intellectual and developmental disabilities, walked hand in hand with those in recovery for 30 years, and advocated for the vulnerable through activism.

In my spare time, I enjoy recharging my batteries with friends, yoga, nature hikes, movies, music, art and travel. My two cats, The Outlaw Rex and Little Liza Jane, are my constant companions, along with my best friend Alan.
