With warmth and thoughtfulness, I strive to really listen, understand, and help you find new perspectives on your life (past, present, and future) that feel more deeply true and hopeful.   

My approach to psychotherapy is primarily influenced by my clinical training. Additionally, however, my longstanding experience with sports, dance, Pilates, and yoga brings creativity and a down to earth attitude to my style.
