Therapy is the process of rediscovering clarity, purpose, and joy. While starting therapy can seem daunting, I offer a warm, nonjudgmental space in which we'll explore your concerns together. I use compassion and humor to help you move through pain and worry, so that you can be more fully present in your life, relationships, and community. I will work hard with you to release unhealthy or frustrating ways of thinking or behaving that stand between you and the life you want. I strive to meet my clients with empathy and authenticity, backed up by over twenty years of experience and a commitment to research-based methods.

Your life has felt unsustainable for too long and you’ve been afraid to admit it. You wish you had more time to focus on yourself, but it seems like there’s never enough time. You’re tired of feeling ashamed and frustrated because you can’t seem to get this part your life together. You’ve achieved success in your career, and always show up for your family, but you’ve continued to neglect and ignore your mental health. Let's face it- being a mom with a busy career is challenging, but not taking the steps necessary toward better mental health WILL be detrimental.

Are you feeling stuck while attempting to navigate life's challenges? Are you seeking ease, balance, alignment or clarity as you deal with experiences that leave you feeling anxious or overwhelmed? Are you wanting to unlearn unproductive and unhealthy patterns and embrace ways to enhance your overall wellbeing? Therapy helps and having a "guide on the side" to support you in leaning into inner strengths/resources is a road worth traveling.

As a social worker, I understand how societal factors interplay with personal strengths and challenges. I understand that we are more than our experiences or circumstances; they may be part of our story but certainly not the whole story. I work with clients to help them create a narrative and story that is aligned with their vision and desires for themselves. I feel meant to do this work and have a passion for helping individuals utilize their strengths to maximize their potential and achieve their goals.

I identify as an ethicist; a Womanist who advocates and practices feminist ideals, cultural humility through continuous learning, bodily integrity, reproductive justice, sex work is work, pacifism by utilizing non-violent resistance techniques. I believe children have rights, whistleblowers are vital in society, I embrace LGBTQ+, Black Lives Matter is factual, and representation matters. I practice mindfulness with the philosophy of ‘margin to center’ action. I embody, advocate, and support activism in action and respect of human rights. Neither ever ends, even when it is inconvenient or uncomfortable. We must remain firmly resolved

The clients I like to focus on are people that have challenges with executive functioning, anxiety and depression. I want to help people to identify the past challenges or traumatic experiences that could be causing disruption in their lives, so that they can address it because awareness of the origin of an issue is half the battle. A lot of the habits that we do are signs and symptoms of adverse experiences that worked in one point of our lives, but now could be problematic. My goal is to provide a safe space for openness and expression to be heard while I guide you to your goal of being healed using a trauma informed approach.

The days are getting shorter. We will soon be losing an hour. Less sleep, less daylight. I love winter, but it can be dark. Seasonal Affective Disorder generally waxes in winter and wans in spring. This is a gentle reminder to make sure that you're covered with therapy and your medication. For medication management, give us a call. Provide us with your full name and your email address. We will schedule an appointment for you as soon as possible.

I provide therapy to adults with a wide variety of issues. I use a combination of psychoanalytic, cognitive, and hypnotherapy techniques. One or all of these techniques might be right for you at any given time during the course of treatment. I believe that a strong therapeutic alliance is of utmost importance. I provide a safe atmosphere of non-judgment and empathy. My approach is warm, supportive, and collaborative. I enjoy helping individuals utilize their personal creativity to manage emotions and take on life's challenges.

What type of 20018 mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in 20018?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
