W e l c o m e If you are reading this, you are most likely struggling in some way and wondering if counseling can help.
I would like to offer hope that it can. A strong connection with another human being is always a powerful thing, whether you need support and guidance, nurturing and care, a kick in the pants, or shared laughter and celebration. We all need such connections to thrive. We all need people who know our story, understand us and care about us. We all need people who can reflect back to us our own true nature, our own deepest wisdom and our own "astonishing light"
I wish I could show you
when you are lonely or in darkness
the astonishing light
of your own being
Sometimes connecting with a friend or loved one is enough. But sometimes your loved ones are too busy to give you the kind of undivided attention that makes a difference. Or they don't have the special knowledge, skill, experience or patience needed to accompany you where you need to go.
I will walk with you through anything. I am not afraid of big feelings, no feelings, or so-called "craziness." I do not pathologize. Instead, I reflect back to you your unique gifts, strengths, beauty, and wisdom. From that resourced place, we can together face your deepest fears and greatest challenges. I have tremendous faith in the capacity of the human spirit to heal and flourish.
Those who resonate most with me tend to be deeply reflective seekers and artists, people who struggle with negative self talk, and people who value authenticity in themselves and in their relationships. I like to get collaboratively creative and have fun while still taking you and your suffering quite seriously.
It's important to find a counselor who is a good fit for you. I have created this website to give you a sense of who I am and what I have to offer. Please explore what interests you and trust your instincts about whether you want to take the next step with me.
