Give up all the other worlds, except the one to which you belong. --David Whyte

Services

We all have patterns of being that drive us, that are right now determining the course of our lives and the ways we relate to ourselves and others, and we don’t often see them. I believe that therapy has the power to help us see into the blind spots we all have, and that in becoming more aware, we acquire the gift of choice. We get to live more deliberately.  I’m not here to decide how you live. I’m here to help you have the opportunity to choose how you live.

Sometimes the things getting between us and our most authentic life are things we need help processing through like trauma, issues of sexuality, gender and identity, depression, anxiety, grief, and crises of faith. Sometimes we don’t know who we are. Sometimes we think we do, we hate what we see, and we don’t know that we are wrong. Sometimes it feels like no matter what we do, we fail. Or that no matter how much we want to try, we are stuck. This being human is hard. Living can be hard. Sometimes we need someone to lean on. Sometimes we need a guide. Sometimes we just need someone to tell us week after week that we can get through it and that we will be okay. Sometimes we need to borrow someone else’s faith.

Therapy has many meanings and many forms. I don’t know yet what it will be for you. But I promise that if you and I work together, I will show up for you fully. I will sit with you in compassion and non-judgment and do what I can to help clear the way for you to be you, and to love what you see.

Currently, I work with adult individuals and couples. Please contact me if you want to know more about sessions and fees.

When Someone Deeply Listens to You

When someone deeply listens to you
it is like holding out a dented cup
you’ve had since childhood
and watching it fill up with
cold, fresh water.
When it balances on top of the brim,
you are understood.
When it overflows and touches your skin,
you are loved.

When someone deeply listens to you
the room where you stay
starts a new life
and the place where you wrote
your first poem
begins to glow in your mind’s eye.
It is as if gold has been discovered!

When someone deeply listens to you
your barefeet are on the earth
and a beloved land that seemed distant
is now at home within you.

–John Fox
