About

The simple act of living can be overwhelming and difficult to navigate at times. You may be facing new or long standing challenges that interfere with your ability to live your life fully. If you struggle with anxiety or depression, want to make sense of past trauma, feel overwhelmed by grief, difficult relationships, caregiving or life transitions you don’t have to be alone. I work to create an environment in which you can explore the parts of self, life experiences and relationships that are troubling or hard to understand. We will work to shift negative shame-based patterns, thoughts and feelings with compassion and acceptance.
I am a psychodynamic therapist certified in EMDR and other trauma methods. I use an integrated approach that includes body, mind and spirit and is guided by current neuroscience and years of experience in arts and healthcare. Together we will explore the influences that contribute to your unique lived experience and create a path to healing and wholeness.
Don't face life's challenges alone. If you are overwhelmed or have trouble coping, we can explore your circumstances and develop a plan to address the issues that interfere with your well being. Compassionate practice can lead to change. I am an ally to people from a wide variety of diverse backgrounds and welcome both individuals and couples to my practice
