The Right Fit Matters
You want a therapist who gets you. One you can trust.
Opening up to someone new can be intimidating. I understand. I'm patient, and I trust the process. Everyone moves at a different pace.
I know that you aren't coming to therapy to be more stressed out, or worried that your therapist is judging you.
I'll spend some time really getting to know you and understanding your situation. I'll help you pinpoint your goals for therapy.
Our sessions will focus on exploration and growth. We'll assess progress to from time-to-time to make sure we're moving in the right direction.
More than anything, I want to be sure that the work we do is meaningful and valuable to you.
I understand that therapy is an investment--one that has the power to change your life. I respect you and your resources, so I strictly take-on clients that I believe I can help.
Plenty of us struggle to to feel understood. Life is confusing, lonely, and painful at times. Reality seems different than what you'd pictured. It can even make you feel like you're somehow defective.
You want to feel good about your life. To stop making the wrong choices that make you lose hope. You want to believe that you're worthy of the life you want.
This is where I can help.
I take great pride in helping people make meaningful & lasting life changes. I love what I do.
I know the pain and heartache that many people endure in life, and my passion is to help them heal and prosper. We have a basic, human need to have a purpose, and to feel connection to others. When those are missing, we feel empty and alone. Emptiness and loneliness can take you downhill fast.
I help my clients explore the difficult stuff. This is where you figure out the 'what's' and 'why's' of your issues. Then we start putting that knowledge into action. This is where the magic happens!

Outside the Office
The resume shows the professional stuff, but what am I like?
I'm a huge believer in living an active and healthy life. As a holistic therapist, I believe that physical activity is crucial to good mental health.
I love being outside. I carve out free time to hit the gym, be on the water, play golf, run, ski, and hike in the mountains. I'm also a certified yoga teacher and practice mindfulness and meditation.
I practice clean eating (most of the time...lol) and would prefer to try natural ways of healing before taking medication.
I read. A lot. I love sci-fi, history, & psychology (of course).
I shamelessly adore dark chocolate and anything jalapeno.
