My Approach

“Drinking a cup of tea, I end the war.” 

– Paul Reps, Zen Poet

It is not lost on me what an honor it is to sit with people through the most important experiences of their lives. I have been in the field for almost 25 years and I absolutely love my clients, and love what I do.

 I sometimes wonder, “How did I get here?!” I love that I get to witness so much courage and transformation. It is an awe inspiring privilege, and my sense of wonder and gratitude continues to deepen as I mature as a therapist (and as a person)! This work is soul work for me, too, and I am committed to growing and evolving right alongside you because I am just another human on the path towards what matters in life. 

I am warm and funny and real, and I bring a lot of heart and humor into every session. I am no stranger to the heartache that brings you to therapy – I have lived it, too, and am willing to be with you in the trenches. I believe that the foundation of effective therapy is in the relationship we build together, and from there we can do all sorts of creative things to help you reconnect with your center and shake loose from those voices inside that block your path.

Being open to the full experience of your life means honoring the light even as we honor the dark. My approach is a powerful and unique combination of Jungian Depth Psychotherapy, ACT Therapy, and Buddhist Psychology. I believe in the power of accessing your own deep wisdom through dream work, active imagination, art, journaling, mindfulness, meditation, and an openness to spiritual synchronicity. All of these tools are woven intuitively into your work as you need them. This can sometimes be surprisingly fun! When we open up to a creative flow together, we can learn so much about who you are, how to heal, and how to find meaning and purpose in your life, whether it’s through laughter or tears. 

This process is hard work and magic at the same time, but you are worth the investment in yourself and your life. I will support you as you live more fully, love more freely, and engage with more courage and authenticity as yourself. This is my most passionate life’s work, and I would love to talk with you to see if I might be useful to you on your journey. If you feel ready to heal, to grow, and to transform (even if you don’t know how yet), give me a call today. I can’t wait to meet you.

Here are some things people have told me they want you to know about working with me:


“You are an open heart, open mind therapist. You have a fast, wicked sense of humor and meet people where they are. You have a vast tool box and range of experiences to facilitate going deeper. You are safe. Nothing surprises you. Your have good boundaries and honor the boundaries of others. You are honest, humble, compassionate and curious. You look for ways to personally learn and grow which serves as a wonderful example to people who’ve temporarily lost their way. You don’t have all the answers but you are willing to explore all the possibilities. You provide good tea, a quiet space to unravel and fall into place. You are a gifted teacher.” – Laura


“Oh where to start… I would say that your capacity to hold people is one of your best qualities, along with your open heart. You say yes and are so nonjudgmental. Everyone should know you’re an artist, a meditation teacher, and have done your work so you’re not afraid to walk people where they need to go. Grief needs a companion, and there’s no one better than you.” – Jessica


“I would tell them that you are a genuine and warm person who is committed to meeting clients where they are. That you are an artist and a yogi and explorer of new ideas and deepening of understanding. I would tell them you have a sense of humor along with extensive knowledge and training. And that you are a stellar human who I feel lucky to know and learn from.” – Lane
