Sometimes life can be a real kick in the pants, get messy, bog you down, or is just plain crappy. And that sucks. You might be experiencing difficult feelings, have challenges in connecting with others, or feel like coping with day to day stuff is too much. Maybe there have been ongoing patterns in your life that you want to stop repeating, or perhaps you have just had a big change, like a major loss, or change in your health. Whatever it may be, you recognize that you want something different for yourself. And that's a big deal.

If you are an “over” person - an overthinker, overwhelmed, or overworked - then you are one of the people I work with best. You are hard on yourself, “self-care” is confusing or guilt-inducing, you can get paralyzed by intense feelings, stuck in negative thought spirals, or find yourself shutting down. You may have been wondering for a long time how to turn off negative thoughts or let go of things you can’t change. The constant weight of what you believe you “should” be doing can feel immobilizing, and the endless fight against the “what ifs” is exhausting. It may feel impossible to move on or let go of negativity or trauma.

Welcoming NEW clients! Do you find yourself trapped in the same argument you've had countless times before? Does it feel like you and a loved one speak different languages?

Every healthy and honest relationship encounters conflict. The challenging part is how we navigate it. Our approach can 'make-or-break' our relationships, and sometimes ourselves, in the process.

Taking the first step towards reaching out to a therapist can feel very overwhelming, so congratulations for taking that step today! The reasons for connecting with a therapist are varied and unique to the individual, as such my practice is to work to fully understand the concerns you are navigating, as you see them. In unpacking the concerns and the subsequent impact, we can work together to explore different ways of responding to the issues you're facing, be it a change of circumstance, or a change in how you feel about the circumstance. Together we can work towards creating a life that is more rich and meaningful on your terms.

My practice is dedicated to helping you move towards deepened self-understanding, integrate changes that hold the greatest meaning for you, and establish connections (to oneself, others, & life) that are most reflective of your values. I apply CBT principles within an integrative and strength-based approach to guide practical solutions, self-discovery and empowerment. I hope to bring a warm presence and genuine curiosity to help you build inner-resiliency that closes the gap between where you are and where you want to be (whether relational, personal growth, meaning, trauma healing, depression, anxiety, stressors, transitions, etc).

My approach to psychotherapy is deeply rooted in feminist and structural analyses that contextualize individual "problems" in our social environments. My therapeutic orientation is comprised of an eclectic mix of theoretical models that guide my work, including emotion focused therapy, psychodynamic therapy, and somatic therapy. While I don't practice exclusively from one perspective, I believe that it is my role to be constantly assessing whether or not the work we are doing appears to be helping you to achieve your therapeutic goals. I offer psychological services under the supervision of Dr. Leigh Karos, C. Psych.

Recovery and healing from trauma can be a process that changes over time, and it’s rare that there is a single approach. When working with trauma sometimes therapy aims to support gradual changes that enhance coping, while also processing how patterns and reactions can be changed. Sometimes change is not the goal, and self-understanding by processing the impacts of traumatic experiences is the focus.
