You deserve to understand what you feel; and to process your feelings without judgement.

I believe in an integrative approach to psychotherapy; socially, biologically, spiritually and mindfully. I strive to help my clients compassionately relate to all parts of their experience, and skillfully shape each area of their lives that they are seeking to better understand.
