About me

We live in a complex web of relationships, and having a better understanding of yourself in relation to others can be the key to living your most authentic life. Therapy is a tool to better understand the barriers that keep us from experiencing joy, finding peace, and building meaningful relationships. Issues at work, grief, relationship challenges, and feelings of sadness and despair can be overwhelming. Finding the hidden emotional truth is the first step to identifying and addressing the real reasons we struggle. A therapist is a supportive partner who helps you navigate and understand the turbulent waters of human existence.

Depth-oriented therapy gives people the ability to identify and understand the problem at hand. There are often patterns that are repeated unconsciously, and my approach to therapy is to be honest about the misunderstood but authentic emotions and motivations that shape our behavior. A better understanding of your true self lays the foundation for a life with meaning.

My clients often ask me "How did you know?". My education, post-graduate training, and experience (both personal and professional) have taught me how to recognize the patterns and hidden truths that are core to our personalities and emotional well-being. I am passionate about helping others learn how to grieve; our society doesn't allow us the space to grieve all the things we lose, whether it be loved ones, relationships, opportunities or dreams. The only way to move beyond loss and sadness is to truly and deeply grieve, find the meaning in our lives, and move forward with hope.
