"Peace is within oneself to be found in the same place as agitation and suffering. It is not found in a forest or on a hilltop, nor is it given by a teacher. Where you experience suffering, you can also find freedom from suffering. Trying to run away from suffering is actually to run toward it."
My approach is largely influenced by my long-held meditation practice, which I began 20 years ago. One of the biggest benefits I have seen, in my life, is my ability to remain comfortable in the midst of experiencing uncomfortable emotions. This ability also translates well into working with my clients.
In our work together there will certainly be times when uncomfortable emotions may come up for you. My goal is to be the therapist that can sit with you in the midst of those uncomfortable emotions, and remain with you, side by side, in the discomfort until we can work together to find a helpful solution for you.
I have a passion for working in the field of death and dying, as well as within the field of sexuality. I am drawn to working with the LGBTQIA+ community as well as with the Alternative Sexuality community (Poly, Non-monogamy, Swinging, Kink, etc.). I have a strong dedication to allow my clients to show up as who they are because it’s only when you can feel safe and comfortable, that we can sit down and begin talking about the work that you want to do together.
