About Me

I am a psychoanalytic psychotherapist, EFT Couples Therapist, writer and lifelong student of healing and the arts. I have devoted myself to growth and wellness, and I invite you into the work of your healing and growth.

From my experience and from my work with many clients, I understand that throughout life we inevitably experience things that cause us to retract, become silenced and become wounded in ways seen and unseen. To me, therapy is a process towards development of the whole self. Psychotherapy and counseling are about living life in the most satisfying way, and actualizing our potential.

My undergraduate work explored issues of belonging, both from a social context and from a design perspective.
