Founder & Clinical Director

“The idea of therapy isn’t to give people answers, or lead their longing into a safe, dull, protected harbor, but to make people aware of the depths of possibility in their hearts and lives; to help them remove the barriers that keep them from being the people they were meant to be.”

– John O’Donohue –

I help people heal, connect, grow, and thrive.

Life is messy, painful, and sometimes downright unjust. It is also magical. Have you been hurt or disillusioned? Have you experienced insidious, vicarious, or direct trauma? Are you thinking that life might just be too painful or difficult to bear? Are you losing hope as you struggle with depression or anxiety? I will help you find peace and healing so that you can once again feel hope, awaken to joy, and be fully present to all the possibilities of your life.

Relationships are hard, and sometimes devastating. They are also the heart of life. Do you feel like you are meaningfully connected to the important people in your life? Do you sometimes feel misunderstood, disappointed, frustrated, unworthy, insignificant, unseen, or unheard? Does shame cripple you when you are trying to fully show up? Are you sometimes so afraid of losing the person/people you love that you withhold the best parts of yourself? Has someone who was supposed to love you betrayed you or deeply wounded you? I will help you find healing, clarity, and connection (with yourself and with others) so that you can experience an abiding sense of belonging and significance.

Growth is uncomfortable, vulnerable, and full of uncertainty. It is also liberating. Are you being challenged to change in ways that feel impossible? Do you want things about yourself or your life to be different, but you have no idea what to do first? I will help you hold space for the difficult questions so that insight and clarity can ignite deep change and transformation in your life.

Thriving is a by-product of terrifying risk. It is also exhilarating. Are you restless or bored? Do you find yourself thinking that there has to be more to life than this? Are you uninspired and just going through the motions? I will help you cultivate a vision for yourself and for your life, and to then bravely offer, without reservation, all that you have to give to this world.

It will be an honor and a privilege to provide space for you to think, breathe, find the words, feel the feelings, and wrestle with the hard questions. I look forward to connecting with you.
