Existential Psychotherapy

"Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards. "

- Soren Kierkegaard

My Approach

I offer a modern, engaging style of therapy. To quote Joseph Campbell, "I don't believe people are looking for the meaning of life as much as they are looking for the experience of being alive." My therapeutic intention is to help people bring more vitality into their lives, and my approach is rooted in a philosophy that recognizes the tensions, struggles, and awe inherent in being human. Far from setting out a correct or superior way of living, this therapy honors each person's unique values, wants, and the mysteries and conditions of living. I am trained in this existential-humanistic model of psychotherapy, which recognizes and celebrates our idiosyncrasies, and refrains from reductive analysis or forced methods.
