We all have access to sources of strength and wisdom from which we can easily become disconnected in the course of our lives.  Some of those sources are within us and some of them are 'between us,' in our relationships with others.  I use mindfulness, and Jungian concepts to facilitate re-connection with those springs of health and wholeness within and all around us. This re-connection can increase a sense of vitality and meaning for individuals, couples and our community.

In my work with individuals, I specialize in crises of meaning and purpose, depression, stress reduction, and anxiety.  However, I have significant experience with a broad range of common difficulties.  Here are just a few of the concerns that bring people to see me:

We cannot change anything until we accept it.
Condemnation does not liberate, it oppresses.
— C.G. Jung
  • Adjustment to change
  • Excessive worry or fear
  • Trauma and crisis
  • Depression and Anxiety
  • Stress and concerns about physical health
  • Grief and loss
  • Spiritual questions/ Search for meaning and purpose
  • LGBTQ related concerns
  • Sexual health
  • Job stress or performance concerns
  • Career change
  • Relationship problems
  • Desire for personal growth
  • Family concerns
  • Substance use questions or problems with drugs or alcohol
  • Self injurious behavior
  • Suicidal thoughts

Because I take seriously the unique needs of each person, there is no one way that counseling sessions look.  However, I utilize interventions with a proven track record of research and effectiveness.  My work is influenced by Jungian psychology, mindfulness, acceptance and commitment therapy, gestalt therapy, and internal family systems.
