My approach is guided by the belief that a safe, supportive relationship is essential for positive change, and that change is possible. I help my clients uncover the root causes of current problems in order to connect with their desires and live lives of purpose and happiness. I have specialized training in:
  
 • Psychoanalysis 
  • Cognitive-Behavioral therapy
  • EMDR
  • Group Therapy
  • Health Coaching
  • Mindfulness
  
 Are you struggling with aligning your life activities with your values and goals? Do you find yourself feeling stuck in unfulfilling relationships? It’s vital to acknowledge and face your current situation and the feelings you have about it in order to make change happen, and psychotherapy provides space for this.

 We'll begin by talking about your goals for therapy, and we'll collaborate on a plan for our work together. You can expect to develop more perspective and self-compassion, find a new capacity to navigate difficult feelings, and uncover and work towards freedom from habitual thought patterns.
 
 I am curious by nature, and I’d love to help you explore your particular individuality and its connection with your life history and desires. Through our work together, you’ll gain new insight and appreciation for who you are as you grow in expressing previously unspoken parts of yourself. I’ll ask a lot of questions in our conversations, but also hold space for you to discover your own thoughts and speak them.

 It can be difficult to begin a journey of self-discovery. But with the right support, the work finds its rhythm, and improvements can come surprisingly quickly. Please contact me for a free telephone consultation, and we can discuss where we might start our work together.
 
About me: I received a Master's in Social Work from Smith College School for Social Work in 2012, and graduated from the UC San Diego/ VA San Diego Interprofessional Fellowship in Psychosocial Rehabilitation in 2013. As a faculty member for the fellowship program and a field instructor for several schools of social work from 2015-18, I provided training in assessment and psychotherapy for psychosis-spectrum disorders and PTSD.​ I am currently in formation as a Lacanian analyst at the Clinical College of Colorado. Since 2013, I have been actively training in group therapy with the American Group Psychotherapy Association and the Center for Group Studies in New York.  I help my clients to recognize previously unacknowledged ways that others may experience them, and to create new language for their experiences. I am currently accepting new members for a mixed-gender process group, Wednesday evenings 6:30-8:00. 
  
Before becoming a therapist, I worked as a wilderness guide, both domestically and internationally. I have been a Buddhist meditation practitioner since 2000, and have received instruction in the Vipassana, Zen, and Vajrayana  traditions. I was certified as a meditation instructor by Naropa University.
