    Psychotherapy is about care for your soul and mental health. It is private and held in complete confidentiality. You and I together, listening to your life’s narrative, will explore your thoughts, beliefs, conflicts, and connected feelings.

    Understanding our lives and our experiences, as shaped by our backgrounds, can be challenging. The ways we understand those experiences and their meanings are malleable! In therapy we work together to develop more helpful paradigms for thinking, feeling and relating—this frees up those parts of you burdened by defenses, to help you live more authentically.

    As you consider the idea of therapy and begin your search for a therapist, I’m guessing you may feel pretty vulnerable. I get it, I’ve been there. Trusting another with your personal story and letting go of some of the protections you have put in place over the years takes time. As your unique story unfolds, we will get there - together.

    In spite of great difficulties, you’ve not given up on finding meaning in your life. In helping you figure out what moves you, psychotherapy allows you to make better sense of what you’re going through, to be more aware of your strengths, and more mindful of what you need to sort out.

    Do you want to grow in life? I believe that wisdom and creativity emerge through openness, curiosity, and reflection on your authentic experience. I work mostly with people in their twenties and thirties who find themselves at a turning point. This includes those of diverse communities, sexual orientations, and gender identities.

    “Nothing that feels bad is ever the last step” (Gendlin, 1981). We often seek therapy when we find ourselves struggling, when everything else we have tried has not worked. The good news is the strength, resilience and courage you need to create the change you want are already within you.

    We sometimes doubt that others truly understand what we are feeling, so we struggle in silence. This takes a toll on our minds and our bodies and leaves us feeling anxious or depressed. I offer a place to have these thoughts and feelings held, respected, and cared for. A place for you to explore yourself with another.

    Consider what brought you here. Are you worried about the future? Relationships suffer when we feel dissatisfied, lonely, or lost. Do you feel misunderstood? That can leave us anxious or angry. We can bring awareness to the beliefs guiding our lives and create greater connection to ourselves and others through the honest conversation therapy offers.

    Therapy is an opportunity to determine what you want – what is most meaningful to you – then shift into living from that new understanding. An intentional, therapeutic dialogue attends to layers of mental and emotional discomfort, their origins, and their outdated purpose. Therapy is a means to unstick the stuck places; it is an instrument of profound change.

    We come to therapy with the hope that our lives can be better, but we often don’t know what to change or how. It’s hard to give up the familiar for the unknown. In therapy we gain the insight that allows us to transform and move forward. I believe we contain the innate ability to heal.

    Traumatic experience occurring in early life, as well as ongoing instances of neglect, loss or unmet need, may significantly affect our sense of self. Negative events act as filters that constrain our development and perceptions. But things can get better. Psychotherapy can help to us to understand ourselves more fully, develop more satisfying relationships, and live the lives we long to lead.

    Our bodies are our first source of support in this life. When trauma disrupts our connection to our body wisdom, access can be restored through self-awareness, meaningful human contact, and our bodies’ own power of self-regulation. Therapy gives us tools to discover our own unique path to healing.

    Sometimes it is more difficult to ask a question than to answer it. In conversation with another, one practiced in the art of attuned listening, it becomes possible to discover not only what is worthy of questioning, but why answers have remained so stubbornly concealed from our own searching.

    Beginning psychodynamic therapy is beginning a journey of self-knowledge. This journey leads to greater self-esteem, agency, resilience, vitality, and insight. It moves us from feeling disengaged in our lives to finding the extraordinary in the ordinary, allowing us to see the treasure of the present moment.

    We have great inner resources for healing and for growth. But we need a context in which we feel listened to and heard and within which a new perspective can develop. My method as a psychotherapist is to listen carefully to your dreams, experiences, fears, hopes, and longings, as we work together in your therapy to understand your particular concerns and experiences.

    We are altered by experiences that enable us to put away or forget who we really are. You deserve to be heard. Speaking freely about your life, without judgment, can make you visible to yourself again, allow you to un-hide with another, and eventually begin to heal.

    The way we speak about our experiences shapes the way we know ourselves and interact with others. Through dialogue, I help individuals harness the power of expression to forge healthy and vibrant connections both inwards and outwards. As new perspectives are spoken into being, we can bring about the changes that we have long hoped for.

    Psychotherapy is an opportunity to shed old, unhelpful ways of being for more authentic forms of connecting. Recognizing your own patterns, let alone changing them, can be difficult without support. Working with an empathetic therapist who listens attentively and without judgement can lead to lasting transformational change.

Sharing this with others isn’t easy, but I offer a safe, confidential space to reflect on what’s happening in your life. Deeper self-understanding can shift your struggle.

    Many clients entering therapy wonder, “How can only talking help me?” The increased sense of well-being we gain in therapy is more than just a worded experience. Current research in neurobiology validates the effectiveness of talk therapy, in which the therapeutic conversation creates “limbic resonance.” When you sit with a calm, knowledgeable, experienced psychotherapist you are neurologically regulating mind and mood.
