Therapy in the Moment

Navigation Menu

Are you interested in…


• finding healthier relationships in your life?  • feeling more at peace with yourself?


• feeling safe and at ease with your emotions, thoughts, desires, needs and surroundings?

Whether you feel comfortable taking gentle steps toward your goals or are ready to make robust changes in your life, I will work with you at your desired pace. Therapy with me involves conversation and exploration of your body's reactions to your emotions and experiences.

One of the unique aspects about my work is that clients have the option to include my therapy dog in their sessions. Aria is a gentle and playful dog who loves human connection. Her presence in sessions often allows clients to open up more fully and to begin to understand what their own bodies are "saying."
