Finding the right therapist is critical. The relationship we develop together sets the stage for your growth. You must feel seen, understood, and safe. This all-important trust is essential and allows our work to advance.

Together, we will help you to overcome the conscious and unconscious convictions that inhibit progress, paving the way to health, happiness, and lasting equilibrium. Whether working with individuals, families or organizations, I can help you to untangle difficult knots, and find positive solutions that promote success.

I’m fortunate to work with a team of passionate specialists. Our dynamic, collaborative approach pulls from cutting-edge research and best practices. I’m proud to say that our collective work has become a globally recognized industry standard.

My practice is currently at capacity, however, I’m open to consulting, supervision, and speaking opportunities. Please reach out if our team can be of assistance.
