Psychotherapist - LMFT
I offer services via video, and phone. When pandemic conditions allow, I will also offer in person sessions.
I believe that good therapy finds a balance between problems and resources. Problems are the things in your life that hurt or hinder you, and resources are those that nurture and support your life. In my therapy practice I strive to map the problems, and to recognize and build up the resources. One way to look at a person’s biography is to see it unfolding between problems and resources. Therapy can help a person find the hidden benefit of problems and to strengthen resources that may be overlooked or undervalued. Eventually, as healing occurs, problems shift – they become something that influences that unfolding, rather than stopping it. My job as a therapist is to guide and support you in that process.
I have specialized training in trauma, healing shame, and adult ADHD. I use mindfulness and a lot of reflective language. I describe my approach as practical, grounded, spiritual, and creative.
My life experience contributes to what I bring to the therapy. Having worked in the corporate world for over fifteen years, I can relate to the real-life challenges of balancing work and personal life.
