About Me

As a therapist, I use an interactive, “here and now” approach.  I believe that relationships are healing, and that a strong connection and open dialogue between myself and the client is the most effective path toward change.

The tools I have developed through years of training offer methods to heighten and develop awareness, and, with awareness, I have seen many clients overcome significant blocks, and move into a more full and satisfying expression of their potential selves.

As with all relationships, every therapeutic relationship is different, and I believe that what happens in the therapy process should be shaped by your style as well as mine.  I look forward to meeting you with openness, curiosity, flexibility, and creativity.

I have over five years of advanced training in Gestalt Therapy.  My specialties include work with anxiety, sexual problems, sexuality issues, trauma, creativity, and depression. I also have experience working with substance abuse and recovery.
