"What is to give light must endure burning." Victor Frankl



I am a psychotherapist who views therapy as a sacred relationship with another. I work from the perspective of integrating the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. I provide counseling to individuals of all ages, couples, families, and groups. I offer workshops and retreats focusing on integrating psychotherapy, spirituality, and the arts. I offer ceremonies and rituals including home and office blessings, divorce and separation blessings, baby blessings, and any other event you might like to create.

Therapy comes from the word therapeia which means "to be attentive to."
 
I believe that we are created as spiritual beings and even if we are not involved in organized religion or a member of a certain faith, a Loving Spirit calls out to us for connection, to use our gifts to make the world a better place, and longs to help our souls sing the songs they were created to sing.

Even though I integrate spirituality into my work I do not impose my spiritual beliefs on anyone. Some people have been hurt by the manner in which religious beliefs have been taught and prefer to stay away from any conversation about faith or spirituality. I will respect wherever you are on your spiritual journey and am committed to being sensitive to you in all areas of your life. We will only go where you want to go in that area, and any other. One does not need to be "religious" to see me or even believe in God. I respect each individual's beliefs and will honor your personal values and experiences.

I believe there are times when words simply are not adequate and therefore utilize expressive therapies, the arts, inner focusing, and writing.  I value dreamwork and believe dreams are, as Morton Kelsey says, "God's forgotten language."

When we meet we will decide together where you want to focus, how you want to spend your time, and what matters most to you. We will look at what is working well in your life and what isn't. We'll explore where you want to go and what changes you might like to make. All of our work will be confidential.
