Therapy can allow you to identify and remove blocks to creating change, help you make more intentional choices by offering deeper awareness of your perspective, or help you construct coherency or a different view of issues that are plaguing you. While I enjoy working with clients of varying backgrounds and ages (and all are welcome in my practice), I specialize in working with those who are suffering from anxiety, trauma, complex trauma, sex- and sexuality-related concerns, and who are aged 14+. I can help you to make adjustments that create change in your life.

It is the case that life is rarely as we expect it to be and may seem more difficult and confusing than we can bear alone. You may expend a tremendous amount of energy holding it together or trying to maintain the appearance of perfection leaving you feeling depleted and unfulfilled. My hope is to meet you where you are and walk alongside you to help sort out your emotions, enhance your relationships, understand yourself, achieve goals, and facilitate healing.

The ideal client is one that is willing to put in the work to make the changes identified to heal. Their needs include identifying the areas in which they are carrying the heaviest load. Once identified, the client works alongside the therapist to create and execute their goals within the treatment plan. Goals such as creating a list of coping skills, identifying and eliminating stressors, leaning into their support system, practicing mindfulness, completing assessments and researching behaviors. They want this to begin healing from their past (traumas) and entering into a fulfilling life to become a better version of themselves.

I provide a safe environment for clients to process their issues. I believe that psychotherapy is more than talk therapy. I am excited about the new research and treatments that focus on mind and body (somatic memories). I have an integrative approach to therapy. I work best with complex trauma (emotional and physical, including childhood neglect) and resulting anxiety and depression. I work well with grief related issues (complicated grief) and problems that arise from chronic illnesses.

As children we create beliefs about ourselves and the world around us that are a result of our interactions with our environment, our heredity and, our relationships with others. Everyday we reinforce those beliefs by our assumptions and our interpretation of events, even though those beliefs may no longer be accurate, may cause us pain, and may negatively impact our ability to function at optimum potential. Counseling and hypnotherapy facilitate awareness, change, empowerment and growth.

I work with children, adolescents and adults, in varying degrees of distress. Many clients enter their therapeutic relationship with presenting problems which may include depression, anxiety, dysfunction in a primary relationship, or grief and loss. Others present addiction and codependency patterns that cause chronic difficulties with maintaining healthy relationships. Some suffer trauma that remains buried and entangled deep within. All are seeking a new path out of their suffering and into an enlightened experienced of themselves and the world. Together we will seek that fresh perspective, allowing old wounds to heal and creating space for a renewed vision of hope.

My guiding philosophy in working with clients is that what is right with a person can enable them to overcome what is wrong with them. My years of working with patients in various treatment settings have only strengthened that view. Whether the issue is depression, trauma, painful personal loss or getting through a difficult crossroad in one's life, my basic approach is to help the person find their own pathways to healing. This is like a process of making "repairs," not of the body necessarily, but repairing one's perspective on life and finding the wherewithal to constructively move forward.

In life we will all experience times of pain. Sometimes this becomes too much to carry alone and we need a guide to walk alongside us. My mission is to create a place of safety in difficult times where healing can take place. It is in the bold journey through these often dark and confusing places that we find tremendous opportunity to identify the unhelpful narratives and behaviors that are holding us back from our true nature. At the same time we are invited to discover the incredible personal strengths that are accessible to us, clarify our values and move towards lives of meaning and fulfillment.

I enjoy meeting with people and finding out about their lives, specifically what went into making them the people they are today. Since we are all products of our genetics, the environment in which we grew up, experiences we had or didn't have, it's a pleasure to walk along side someone as they fit those puzzle pieces together and have a greater understanding of who they are. This in turn helps them understand why they feel the way they do or where some of their behaviors might come from. It's a joy to see them grow.

Living authentically and compassionately leads to inner peace. Trauma and distress can cause a plethora of confusing responses, making that peace seem unobtainable. Each person brings their own worldview, experiences, strengths and clues to unburdening oneself from the overwhelm. Healing and moving forward can seem daunting. Therapy transforms the mind-body system, leading to self-energy and clarity. Now also offering training for schools and organizations on becoming trauma-informed!

Do you know the secrets to a happy romantic relationship? Relationships can be confusing. Couples who call me say that they've "lost interest in each other", and sometimes "don't even want to go home at night". Or that over the years they've "drifted apart" and feel like they "live more as friends". They've stopped being affectionate with each other and feel as though their partner stopped seeing them as important. Somehow the magic left their relationship. The dance has ended.
