Using a person-centered, relational approach, I seek to create an egalitarian and collaborative space for you to feel safe, seen, and heard. I utilize Existentialism and Depth Psychology (Jungian) in my work and am able to flexibly refer to behavioral modification tools where appropriate (DBT/ACT). Together we will work to process the wounds accumulated across a life span: integrating, and healing. To do so, I seek to establish a therapeutic relationship founded on authenticity, free of judgment and stigma, where you can put down the various masks and costumes worn to handle the challenges of your world and lay bare your deepest thoughts and feelings, all the better to make meaning and elevate your understanding of Self.

The Source by James Michener, it's a historical fiction novel about a place with a natural water source, in what is now referred to as the Middle East, following the lives of humans that chose to inhabit and make a home near that place, over a span of 10,000 years. Part history, part human melodrama, it's a delightful exploration of what is everlasting and immortal in the expression of human behavior, for better or worse.
