I am committed to helping people explore what keeps them stuck in life & relationships and facilitating the growthful process of getting unstuck to live a more satisfying life. During challenging times, accessing the choice to grow and live a healthy & productive life can be difficult. With the support of an experienced therapist energy that is stuck in reactivity can be redirected toward one's life path and becoming one's best.

    I aim to assist clients with a range of difficulties with an emphasis on relationships. I explore with clients how relationships are both a resource & a challenge in their effort to live a healthy and productive life. Symptoms are viewed as connected to the big picture of a person's life & relationships. I helps clients develop self awareness of how they might be reacting to others & how those reactions are being responded to. I work not to take sides with any member of the client's relationship system. I encourage clients to work outside the therapy room in the natural system of their real life & relationships. I am a Gestalt trained therapist predominantly informed by family systems thinking, I have over 20 years experience as a meditator
