What I Do
I'm a trauma-informed mental health practitioner who focuses on root causes rather than symptoms. I help people all over the world go underneath their behaviors, thought patterns, and diagnoses to address what is causing problems in their lives. I use a compassionate, non-judgmental, and non-pathologizing approach that is well-suited to effect real change - whether your challenges manifest in relationships, with parenting, or at work. My goal is to enable a level of deep healing that allows each of us to recover our true self, which is always present - even when hidden by maladaptive patterns.
The two primary therapeutic modalities that I use are Internal Family Systems (IFS) and Compassionate Inquiry (CI), both of which are wonderful approaches to tease apart true causes from surface-level symptoms. It is my belief that the unconscious is typically running the show to a far greater extent than we realize, and it is from this perspective that true healing can occur. As Carl Jung wrote, "Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate." The essence of this work is to shed light on how our unconscious beliefs dictate our conscious behaviors, and to establish compassionate relationships with those beliefs to effect healing.
I believe that self-healing is a natural function of any organism. But modern culture often gets in the way, resulting in repetitive patterns and a sense of being stuck. I facilitate a process of assisted self-discovery to untangle these dynamics, and to restore harmony and balance to the inner system.

My fundamental belief is that our natural state is one of harmony. When there is disharmony, we bring curiosity and ask "Why?" rather than attempting to fight, resist, or distract from it.
