"Everyone is a hero. This is a given.
We have a call to adventure.
A crisis ensues.
We cannot turn back-and we answer the call.
We collect helpers, teachers, guides.
And we cross the threshold into the unknown.
We lose our identity and enter an abyss, a nadir, the belly of a whale.
We begin traveling back home to what we have known-
re-crossing the threshold.
We have changed."
This quote by Joseph Campbell speaks to how I view each person on life's incredible journey. It is especially applicable when you have chosen to dedicate time to examine and understand your motivations, longings, values, and internal obstacles as you are called to make important decisions during inevitable, often challenging, and sometimes exciting transitions.
There is a great mystery to this unfolding that can often be unpredictable and feel like "entering an abyss." But with compassionate presence, we can bring light (awareness) to these unknown places and increase your deep sense of knowing. I see my role as supporting your natural process towards evolution so that you move towards a deeper satisfaction on your life path. I am dedicated to being aware of your unique needs.
The word “psychotherapy” has its roots in ancient Greek: “psyche” meaning soul/spirit/breath and “therapia” meaning healing.
I see the work we do together as taking care of the soul at its deepest level. I look for the inherent health and wisdom that is held in all of your life experiences and attend to this co-creative process in a way that deeply honors all aspects of your Self.
Times of too much stress or stuckness in your work or relationship are signals for growth. If you've been getting down on yourself for knowing what you want your life to look like, but you're not doing enough about it, I’m here for you. I listen well, invite humor, and bring in mindfulness and other practical tools so we can tend more deeply to the roots of your suffering. From that place of deep understanding, you can and will make the changes to live your best life.
I am gender-affirming and LGBTQ+ ally.
“Don’t ask what the world needs;
ask what makes you come alive.
And go do that.
Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”
I can support you to work through...
