Marriage and Family Therapist, License #48562
We are born with an inner “knowing”, an intuitive way of perceiving the world and our relationship to it.
This softer, organic intelligence is meant to motivate and propel us through a wild and wonderful journey. More times than not, however, it becomes silenced by efforts to navigate the hard edges of a concrete and demanding world.
I help people reconnect with and reclaim their innate wisdom - that part of themselves which is forever alive.
Whether you want to heal an old wound, break a bad habit, address a recurring problem, redefine your place in the world (or in a significant relationship) or simply "grow down deeper", I encourage you to honor the impulse to recover your innate wisdom. The impulse, itself, issues from a place which is both subtle, and golden.
All therapy serves as an invitation to come home to ourselves - to connect the dots between the clamor at the surface of our lives, and the wordless knowing beneath it. I am passionate about the privilege given to me to witness and support my clients' efforts to recuperate their personal, social, and creative sensibilities. I look forward to the opportunity to meet you there.
About My Practice
Many, but not all, of the people I work with struggle with a sense of disjoint resulting from any one of a wide variety of factors:
- Crises and/or life passages which disorient them and/or challenge their sense of belonging.
Current or past relationships which leave them feeling out of sorts with themselves and each other.
- Differences – temperamental, cultural, religious, philosophical, physical, gender orientation, and neurological distinctions which put them at odds with the norm.
- Early childhood relationships which failed to meet their needs for safety, understanding and caring, and so interfered with their ability to join the world in the first place.
Not everyone I work with suffers the feeling of detachment, however. I also see people who celebrate a robust connection with the world - who simply wish to deepen that connection, and become more effective at sharing its bounty.
& Family Therapist
Offering short and long term counseling for individuals and couples
I work with individuals and couples over the age of seventeen, and am available for early morning appointments (6-9 a.m.) as well as for typical therapy office hours - days and early evenings.
I am also available for consultation. Unlike therapy, a consultation appointment is a one-time exchange. It is intended to give you the opportunity to touch base with someone outside your immediate circle. Sometimes a relatively unbiased ear is all one needs.
