Connections Matter.

We begin life by relying on caregiver connections for our survival. If this goes fairly well, we grow with general sense of safety, trust, and belonging. The ground we stand on feels solid and secure. We move forward through life with relative ease.

If our early relationships don’t go well enough, we are left on shaky ground: feeling anxious, alone, worthless, scared, angry, and often stuck.

Relational Depth Therapy focuses on connection – to yourself and to others. Within our therapeutic alliance, we look at your relationships (to yourself and others) and think about what is and isn’t serving you. We use awareness, careful thought, and practical application to clear the path forward.

I use my natural curiosity, my strength in relatedness, along with my education and training to help you discover new ways to be in the world with ease and freedom.

For the last 14 years, I’ve been working as a therapist with diverse populations in a variety of settings. I currently work only with individual adults in my private practice. My training includes analytic, psychodynamic, transpersonal theories.

I see my education and training as an ongoing process. I continue to learn as much as I can about different ways to understand and help people change their lives for the better.
