My Approach

I enjoy assisting young people and their parents during this potent period of transformation and transition.

I played stringed instruments in orchestras from elementary school through college. My body centered approach to counseling involves using myself like the resonating chamber of a cello, allowing my emotional experience with a client to move me. I help clients see their bodies as a resource and deepen their relationships with themselves through present time awareness.

The influence of over a decade of meditation practice allows me to apply mindfulness to the unique relationship I form with a client in the therapy room. I choose my interventions based on what best serves the needs of the client while holding the awareness of my own healing path, and not confusing the two.

My goal is to help your family’s final years of living together be a more positive experience overall. It may be challenging and uncomfortable. It will be worth it.

My approach draws from a variety of therapeutic modalities and influences, including:

  • Body Oriented Somatic Psychology
  • Psychodynamic Theory
  • Attachment Theory
  • Formative Psychology
  • Hakomi Therapy
  • Insight Meditation
  • Family Systems Therapy
  • Narrative Therapy
  • Stages of Change
  • 12 Step Model
  • Harm Reduction
  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

I encourage you to call and schedule an initial session to see if we are a good match.
