Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC)

Welcome. Are you looking for more joy and better relationships? My training has taught me to help people examine and describe the life they have, identifying areas in which they are "stuck," and reconnect to the life-goals that motivated them. Sometimes this stuckness has to do with certain feelings, sometimes it is about past traumas, often it shows up as repeating patterns in significant relationships, and sometimes it manifests as a malaise in which a direction in life seems impossible to find. I practice psychodynamic mind-body psychotherapy, incorporating Relational Psychoanalytic, Experiential Dynamic, Existential-Phenomenlogical, and Buddhist perspectives. My work has been informed by Attachment Theory, Affect Theory, and Interpersonal Neurobiology, and is based in Mindfulness of the present moment. My psychotherapy practice helps people open to their experience so they can create joy and meaning in their lives and let go of the life-patterns that limit them. Having spent four years within a Buddhist order, I use my training in mindfulness to help others explore their embodied mind.

I have had training and practice in using: Existential-analysis: Based in existentialism, phenomenology, hermeneutics, and analytic clinical theory, existential-analysis is a depth psychotherapy that analyzes and describes a person's being-in-the-world, helping develop a deeper awareness of choice, freedom, responsibility, and authenticity. Gestalt therapy and experiential therapy both grew out of the existential-phenomenological approach. Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy: AEDP is a transformative psychodynamic therapy model that emphasizes the importance of processing positive emotional and relational experiences thereby activating their healing potential. Contemplative Psychology: as taught by Karuna Training, based in Tibetan Vajrayana Buddhist principles and contemplative practices, the practice helps us develop our brilliant sanity, and our compassion for self and others.

My training has taught me to help people examine and describe the life they have, identifying areas in which they are “stuck,” and reconnect to the life-goals that motivated them. Sometimes this stuckness has to do with certain feelings, sometimes it is about past traumas, often it shows up as repeating patterns in significant relationships. Often people have a sense of why they are stuck, but have a hard time bringing all the pieces together in a way that allows new learning to take place. Some things are too painful or terrifying to bear alone. Together, we will seek to find the roots of the stuckness. Once that stuckness is truly experienced and witnessed, it gifts us the perspective and information we need to move forward in life.
