Supervised by Amber Barbee MEd, LPC-S

Your body must become soul,
every hairtip quivering
with spontaneous life. 
– Rumi

I have provided supervised psychotherapy in both community counseling and private practice settings. In addition, I have been blessed to work extensively in consulting and non-profit organizations, accompanying survivors of human trafficking through education, community engagement, outreach, aftercare, and advocacy efforts.

Rather than a series of techniques, I see psychotherapy as a relational endeavor built upon compassionate presence, empathic engagement, openness, and curiosity.  Together we witness tender places of distress and wounding so that they may be transformed. We may explore early relationships and experiences from the past to understand their potential impact, while being oriented to the present, and with a vision open toward the future. We consider how various aspects of your life may carry deeper meaning. We explore attitudes, patterns, and relational dynamics that hinder your ability to respond to other people, your circumstances, and your unique life path. I will accompany you amidst challenging life transitions and discernment of your calling, as you seek to live more fully who you are and to give of yourself creatively in the world. The therapy process will hinge upon development of awareness and finding ways to express, deepen into, and learn from experience.

Psychotherapy means tending to the soul; meaning is discovered in the sacred space of deep sharing, expression, attentive listening, imagination, and reverence for mystery. This process involves reflecting upon experiences that reveal areas of strength and fulfillment, vulnerability and darkness – and whispers in the inner depths and stirrings of your soul. Therapy will entail inhabiting the disorientation of threshold or liminal experiences, developing one’s capacity to contain intensity and engage complexity.

Psychotherapy is a journey of mutual impact and learning. It is my honor to witness the unfolding and transformative potential in each person and situation. It has been a gift to walk with people from a variety of backgrounds during times of exploration, suffering, and uncertainty, as they grow in awareness and undergo significant thresholds.

I work with an integrative, relational, and depth-oriented approach, drawing upon psychodynamic, Jungian, and Internal Family Systems (IFS) therapy. A practice of curiosity, compassion, and radical openness creates a context for a process that can be playful at times, exquisitely sensitive at others – leading us both into new and unknown terrain. We may incorporate dream analysis, creative expression, movement, story, metaphor and imagination, poetry, and writing in therapy. I am open to drawing upon spirituality in this journey. I also offer Authentic Movement.

If you put on shoes that are too tight
and walk out across an empty plain,
you will not feel the freedom of the place
unless you take off your shoes.
People at a distance see you walking there
and wish they were out in the open like you,
but as the saying goes, They are not in your shoes.
Your shoe-constriction has you confined.
At night before sleeping, you take off
the tight shoes, and your soul releases
into a space it knows. Dream and glide deeper.
Do not hold back what you know to say
about our inmost self. Say everything,
no matter how much hypocrisy and hesitation
you sense is there. Don’t guard the mystery.
– Rumi, “The Freedom of Place”

… What is greatest about our existence and renders it precious and ineffable also makes very careful use of our painful experiences to enter into our soul.
– Rainer Maria Rilke

Water, stories, the body,
all the things we do, are mediums
that hide and show what’s hidden.
Study them,
and enjoy this being washed
with a secret we sometimes know,
and then not.
– Rumi, “Story Water”
