Individual counseling & therapy

I am relational and interactive – I not only ask you questions but I offer lots of feedback.

My approach is eclectic and flexible – I strive to meet you where you are at and bring the tools that are best suited to you in the moment as I am not fixed in one way of working. Whether you are needing practical skill building or are seeking greater depth of growth and healing, therapy can help.

I have a specialty in somatic therapy. This can look like awareness to sensation and body tension as well as physical practices and hands-on somatic work – we will always discuss this first.

Couples counseling

I am currently not accepting more couples in my practice - but feel free to contact me for referrals to trusted colleagues.
