Last Updated: 2/17/2017

Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Registered Yoga Teacher

Nobody knows your needs better than you do. My role as your therapist is to help you discover those needs. My approach is to listen not only to what you say, but also to what you do not say.

We will explore what you have determined is possible for yourself and what is not. Then we can examine the validity of both assumptions. It is very likely that through your own self exploration, in a supportive, confidential environment with me as a trusted and trained professional, you will learn more about yourself and your truest desires.

Whether you seek support for your personal or professonial life, health related issues, or just a deeper self-understanding, our work together in psychotherapy or therapeutic yoga (two separate services), can help you focus on your priorities, and be truthful with yourself.
