Each experience has its own velocity according to which it wants to be lived if it is to be new, profound, and fruitful. To have wisdom means to discover this velocity in each individual case.

- Rainer Maria Rilke, The Poet's Guide to Life

Individual Psychotherapy

Individual therapy allows you to have sessions that are devoted exclusively to you, and it can help you in any situation where you feel alone, uncertain, overwhelmed, or afraid. This includes what you might think of as the “usual” reasons for seeking therapy, such as anxiety, depression, grief, or trauma. But it also includes difficulties such as career struggles, life transitions, spirituality, feeling empty, feeling stuck, and struggles with current events, such as politics and climate change. If you want to know more about what therapy with me is like, please see what you can expect in therapy and what therapy can do for you.

I offer individual therapy to adults of all ages, 18 and up.

Cost: $150 per session. I also accept Blue Cross Blue Shield PPO and EPO. For other insurance plans, I can provide paperwork for you to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement for out-of-network services.

Schedule: Sessions are 50 minutes and usually occur weekly.

Undoing the Aloneness of Climate Change: A Circle of Community for Exploring Our Emotions

Many of us feel alone with the growing reality of climate change and the uncertainty it has created about the foundations of our everyday lives. And yet, bearing this kind of existential uncertainty alone is not something we are neurologically wired to do. Without connection with others, the fear, grief, and other intense emotions can be overwhelming and send us into frantic action, paralysis, or avoidance.

This intimate gathering provides a place to turn toward the uncertainty together and explore our emotions together. Why? Because through connection with others, where we can safely explore our experiences, we find not just soothing but also our deeper, natural wisdom. More resources in our magnificent human system—brain and body—become available, and we feel increased well-being and energy. We feel bolstered by a sense of community. We are able to experience more clarity about what we are needing. We begin to experience ourselves as capable, even in the midst of difficulty.

For anyone who is an activist or interested in becoming more active, this experience also nurtures healthy activism. We can only find actions that are both authentic and sustainable for us when we take time to be with our emotions. For those who want specific ideas for taking action, a list of organizations and resources for getting involved and for learning more about climate change will be provided.

Come join us for meaningful exploration of how you and others are experiencing this challenge for humanity, which is calling us to change how we relate to everything: nature, ourselves, and each other.
