Everything must break open in order to live. The seed must break open in order for the tree to grow. The egg must break open in order for life to emerge. The Earth must be turned and the cloud must burst. You were never meant to stay in your shell.

Therapy can be daunting -- let's connect to ease any fear or hesitation. I bring a sense of humor and an easy, informal approach to this deep and meaningful work. Compassion, warmth, and validation are a central part of the process.
Therapy is a meeting of minds, hearts, and spirits between a person seeking and another person holding space. I hold a mirror to help reflect what is under the surface including patterns, dynamics, ways we treat ourselves, or deeply held beliefs about who we are in the world. Together we reach back to find where these patterns or thoughts began then seek to heal old wounds when we have the safety of the current moment to provide stability.

Initial sessions are approximately 75 minutes. This appointment will focus on gathering historical information, discussing current needs and functioning, and review paperwork. I will make a recommendation for type of service/approach and frequency. Initial appointment paperwork to be completed and sent before the appointment.
Use of psychedelics/plant medicines can produce a non-ordinary state of consciousness that may result in big feelings, ideas, thoughts, or visual experiences for which integration (or synthesis) is helpful to make meaning out of your journey. These sessions offer support for self-guided use and may involve somatic, psychodynamic, and harm reduction approaches. Ages 21 and up.
Therapy appointments may be weekly, bimonthly, or as needed depending on circumstances. This will be discussed as treatment progresses as well as in the initial session since this may fluctuate over time. Sessions are 50-55 minutes. These may be in the office or while walking/light hiking depending on the preferences of each client.
Ages 15 and up.
Pre-licensure and pending licensure clinical supervision is provided for LSW, SWP, LPP, LPCC, and NLC. Supervision may be individual or group and is subject to sliding scale rates. In-person and tele supervision available. Please inquire for more information on availability and scheduling.
The body remembers, the bones remember, the joints remember, even the little finger remembers. Memory is lodged in pictures and feelings in the cells themselves. Like a sponge filled with water, anywhere the flesh is pressed, wrung, even touched lightly, a memory may flow out in a stream.
