It is difficult to reach out for therapy when feeling stuck, or down, or anxious, or possibly not in the mood to speak with a stranger. But I make every effort to be gentle and non-judgemental in my approach and in my initial (free) fifteen minute consultation. Change does not always come quickly and it is usually not a linear process, but in working with adults and couples I have seen transformative change. I am along for the journey to support you and help underline key patterns - help you connect the dots, or possibly bring into awareness that which is out of awareness. Many people experience mood difficulties (sadness, fear, loss, anger) through a perceived narrowing of possibilities and my hope is that together we can expand outwards to create space for a more joyful existence through an understanding of the self. I primarily use a psychodynamic, creative approach to help you find greater self-compassion and clarity that will allow you to feel more confident in your ability to change and heal.
I have worked with a diverse group of clients from various backgrounds and sexual orientations: adults, adolescents and couples and am comfortable working with many issues including, but not limited to generalized anxiety, depression, childhood trauma, relationship distress, lack of self-esteem and strong inner critical voice, suicidal ideation, OCD, gender dysphoria, anger, adjustment and phase of life transitions.
I also enjoy helping clients work through creative blocks. Previously I worked on numerous feature film and television productions and can offer a unique perspective on navigating the difficult terrain of the entertainment industry.
