I wish I could show you when you are lonely or in darkness the astonishing light of your own being.

                                                                                                                           -- Hafiz

When faced with feelings of loneliness, lack of confidence, worry, or sadness, it can feel nearly impossible to remember that each of us has the potential to connect with and live from a creative, energized and compassionate center. Once established, we can perpetually draw upon this connection to understand and accept our past, to guide our present, and to embrace our future. With warmth, commitment, and respect, and with attention to body, mind, and spirit, I work to help people peel away the things that get in the way and access the inner resources they need to live with happiness, safety and ease.

I enjoy helping my clients with these and other challenges:

  • anxiety

  • life and career transitions

  • impacts of oppression

  • needs of social justice activists and organizers

  • trauma and PTSD

  • childhood experiences of neglect

  • co-dependency

  • body image

  • cultural identity

  • adult children of alcoholics or other substance abusers

I provide therapy to a wide variety of people and welcome all who are drawn to my work.  If you are interested in pursuing therapy or if you have questions about me or my practice, feel free to contact me to set up a brief introductory phone consultation.
