still never good enough
. In our work together, we'll wonder together about this puzzle and
where these ideas come from. I'll ask you to bring your most unfiltered self, a
voice that doesn't rely on what you "should" feel but is instead most

shift how you think about things and you can begin to know your true self as
good enough, instead of too much or too little.

years of my life were spent living and working in Central America
which broadened my mind and
worldview to the suffering and joy of our human existence. During that time I
worked with adults, adolescents and children who were in extreme life
conditions without much access to sufficient support or care. I saw and
experienced transformation in many lives.
undergraduate work is in education with a specialty in art
. Seventeen years of teaching in
many different capacities with students of all ages, has also taught me much

psychotherapy are all creative processes, and have much to offer one another.
All are in this business of transformation.
