Providing an excellent multifaceted education for people committed to transforming themselves, others, and the world
"There is a crack in everything. That's how the light gets in."
- Leonard Cohen
I understand suffering to be an undeniable aspect of human experience. It can manifest in how we relate to others or in our internal world as feelings of separation, self-judgment, despair, or loneliness. Therapy empowers us to use suffering to transform our lives, move away from engrained patterns that cause harm, and awaken us into a way of being in the world that is characterized by fulfillment and compassion. I believe that therapy can help us gain important insight and provide us the opportunity to touch into our most deeply authentic, self-actualized personhoods.
Time spent working with families with children with special needs and peer counseling LGBT+ people has provided me the chance to contemplate my approach to therapy. I provide a safe, nonjudgmental, challenging and affirming space. Further, I feel that honoring aspects of our identity, such as sexual orientation, race, gender, class, religion, and ability is crucial and welcome the exploration of how these elements impact our lives.
