Psychotherapy

People seek therapy for a variety of reasons, ranging from developing stability to further enriching an already full and satisfying life. I aim to establish a safe and non-judgmental environment for sharing and allowing the range of emotions to come up. My work is informed by Buddhist philosophy and practice as well as from several therapeutic modalities from Western Psychology. Depending on one’s goals and needs, these modalities may include psychodynamic principles which involve looking at early childhood experiences and how this has come to affect the way one experiences themselves and others; Acceptance and Commitment Therapy which focuses on the here and now and helps one gain a greater sense of connection and self-empowerment with difficult life choices; and Focusing, a body-centered approaches developed by Dr. Eugene Gendlin, to help clients with the murky and ambiguous edges of their experience so that greater wisdom, self-compassion, and agency may be had. My area of expertise is in working with depression, anxiety, addictions of all kinds, stress related to relationships, work, or health, as well as with spiritual and existential crises.
