If you think that you or someone you love would benefit from talking to a professional, I offer sliding scale therapy for a range of issues, including grief, depression, trauma, anxiety, identity & self esteem issues, career problems, relationship issues, stress management and life transitions. I work with individuals, couples and families. My approach to therapy is empathic, collaborative and holistic, working in the way that best serves the mind, body and soul of the individual.
I have a broad range of experience in yoga and meditation and this is reflected in my compassionate, mindfulness-based work. I listen keenly and attend to all aspects of the individual sitting in front of me. We will work towards your specific goals at a pace that feels comfortable for you. I will attend to your thoughts, emotions and beliefs and I will also attend to your physical self– noting that your body language both reflects and influences your state of mind.
I have heard the complaint that therapists do little more than listen, nod and say
“MMmm-hmmm”. I can promise you that I will do more than listen. I teach my clients to become more self-aware and I offer a variety of evidence-based techniques that can provide quick relief from panic and anxiety. In the words of Abraham Maslow, “If the only tool you have is a hammer, then every problem looks like a nail.” I have a lot of tools and together we will find the ones that serve you best.
I have nothing but compassion and respect for people who have the courage to ask for help when they are struggling. If you feel ready to address the issues that have been weighing you down, holding you back or hindering your relationships, then I would love to talk to you.
Research has shown that client/therapist compatibility is the best predictor of positive outcomes in therapy. If we meet and either of us feel that we are not a fit for each other then I will not charge you for our session and I will help you to find another therapist.
