How We Work Together
As a psychotherapist, I meet you where you are, honoring your unique life experience, offering strategies and responses that address your specific needs.
I practice listening deeply, with curiosity and respect, to support your innate capacity for self-awareness, growth, and well-being.
Effective therapy requires authentic contact between therapist and client.
Together we work with your individual experience in the context of our interdependent social-cultural circumstances. I understand psychotherapy as a collaborative endeavor.
"As the therapeutic relationship unfolds it can become a catalyst for healing and transformation."

I have come to the field of psychotherapy following a meandering path. I consider myself a fellow traveler, working on my own growth and transformation, while in service to my clients. Supporting others along the way in their suffering and joy has been integral to my journey. Please contact me to set up a free in-person initial consultation.
