Gentle and Compassionate | I have deep compassion for people who struggle and are in pain. I believe in creating an atmosphere of safety and self-acceptance, and genuinely believe that we are all doing the best we can in any given moment.

Therapeutic and Practical | My approach is therapeutic in the traditional sense – working with underlying issues, looking for deeper meaning, and resolving obstacles. I am also very practical, and will often suggest little tweaks and subtle shifts that can help move things forward.

The unknown is inherent in living – and dying. What we can deal with is our relationship to the circumstances our lives. That is what therapy is for… How do I want to show up?
