Thank you for your consideration of my practice. I especially welcome your interest as the process and outcome of therapy are so connected to the therapy relationship itself. It is my experience that therapy is most helpful when it includes three elements-a highly competent and ethical therapist, a motivated client, and a collaborative and trusting relationship. The latter is essential because it creates the safe and supportive context which fosters enduring growth and change. My approach is integrative, embracing all aspects of the person, and always focused on the unique needs and hopes of my client.

My client base is focused on the addict and those close to them who have been affected by the addict's behaviors. Clients entering the practice have found themselves caught in a destructive cycle of behaviors; often wishing they could stop, but find themselves continuing the behaviors. Then, there are those the addict has betrayed and hurt deeply through his or her behaviors. The affect of the behaviors have often left the loved ones traumatized and in need of support through the healing process.

I seek to create a healing space for clients who may have issues feeling connected, regulated, and safe. This comes in many forms: anxiety, depression, triggers, emotions, disordered eating, and even dissociation. I believe the word “trauma” has a wide spectrum, and that it disrupts our wellbeing no matter how big or small the event itself was. Trauma includes attachment ruptures from troubled relationships across the lifespan and any experiences that take us out of our equilibrium.

Together we will find the right path, and right set of practical tools, to help you overcome obstacles and become your best self. After over a decade-and-a-half working in mental health, I am skilled in the latest, evidence-based therapies available (e.g., Relational Mindfulness and Acceptance & Commitment Therapy). But no single approach works for all people at all times and, remaining flexible, we will create a safe therapeutic environment with the best combination of techniques that works for you. So many different psychotherapies exist today because there is no one approach that works at all times.

Transition and unknowns are challenging. How do we stay grounded while there is flux all around us? Coaching can help with navigating transitions along with the fear and anxiety that may arise at such times. We can also talk about self-care, creative exercises and homework to do between sessions that can assist you in keeping you moving forward on your path toward your goals. Beyond managing times of change, I work with clients to connect with their inner guidance to find clarity in decision making, to clear creative blocks, and to stay rooted in your values as you realize your Big Dream.

When I made the decision to become a therapist, it was because two things became clear to me: I love people and I love learning about their why. As a pre-licensed clinician, I get the opportunity to sit with you and be wildly curious about who you are and who you want to become while acknowledging and processing the pain, challenges, and celebrations along the way. I am passionate about the process of unraveling that therapy gifts each client, and I look forward to facilitating that process with you, regardless of where you are in your journey.

I work with clients wanting to heal from all kinds of painful experiences and challenges in their lives. Often what brings someone into therapy, their current struggles, are symptoms of an underlying unresolved experience which has thrown life out of balance. Anxiety and depression, for example, frequently are a pattern of being stuck in a state of imbalance, following a significant loss, heartbreak or trauma. The goal of therapy is to restore the natural integrity and balance within clients, empowering them to lead creative and fulfilling lives.

I believe in the importance of acknowledging how the brain and body work together to form the person we are. Our experiences throughout our life shape who we are and how we move in the world. I am deeply interested in how we carry our stories in our bodies. In my practice, I integrate knowledge about the way the body, brain, and emotions work together to form our sense of self. I draw from a strengths-based perspective as I help clients achieve their goals in therapy. I enjoy working with children, teens, and adults. I especially enjoy supporting parents in the difficult work of parenting children and teens.

Many of us struggle with defenses and behaviors we have developed in order to escape the pain of our lives, whether it be in the form of substances, food, sex/relationships, work, perfectionism, dissociation, or something else, and in our understandable attempts to avoid this pain we become disconnected from our authentic self and body in the process. As a result, we can often wind up creating even more suffering for ourselves and begin to not only numb the pain, but the joys as well.

Are you constantly contradicting yourself? A part of you wants to grow and transform into your “true” self, but then you feel as though you are self-sabotaging again. You question how you can work on yourself when you are the one preventing the growth. Pablo Neruda’s poem "We Are Many" describes the internal conflict that many of us feel. As a psychotherapist, I noticed that my clients needed something more than just traditional talk therapy. This realization led me to become a Certified Internal Family Systems (IFS) therapist to help people “befriend” the internal conflict and embrace it with love and compassion.

Sometimes, your teen has experienced a traumatic event or is just having difficulty navigating life’s changes, such as divorce; the death of a family member; adoption; or adjusting to school, friends, and their self-identity. Communicating how they feel, especially to their parents, is not a teen’s strong point. As a result, both the teen and parents become frustrated. Adolescence is a significant life transition. Without some guidance (or interpreter), the process becomes a rocky road for all involved.
