My name is Esther an I am mom too, and I became a Therapist to support Moms through their journey. Being a mom can be the most rewarding experience and at the same time it takes so much energy, time, and is exhausting and often feels like we get little to no recognition. I specialize in helping Moms like you connect with who they are, find the balance in their life, and feel empowered to advocate for their needs as they learn that taking care of their individual needs will help you be the best mom you can be to your family. If you are a stressed out mom and looking for some support please connect with me today!

In my work as a therapist, I guide my clients toward a self-awareness journey that is centered in sustained wellness. The majority of my recent work has involved clients whose mental health is impacted by systems of oppression. It is important to me, as a mental health professional, to cultivate deep attunement to the unique needs of individuals who identify themselves as belonging to historically excluded communities. I am committed to staying engaged with liberation efforts that amplify my scope of practice in the interest of consciousness expansion and healing.

We all have times when we could use extra support, for one reason or another. If you're ready to explore therapy, I would be honored to be apart of that journey, and provide support for you, your child or your family. I believe you are the expert on your life, so we will work together on setting goals and finding ways to meet them, that work for you and your family. My goal as a therapist is to create a safe, non-judgmental space where you can feel heard, be vulnerable, and gain confidence to use your strengths to improve your daily living and achieve your goals.

Choosing a therapist is a very personal decision. To me, therapy becomes a place where two people come together to embark on a journey of personal discovery and growth. I believe healing and transformation occur in the context of a shared therapeutic experience - of a "you and me" - through your experiences and my expertise, we will chart new pathways to fulfilled living and relating. From finding relief and feeling better to gaining insight and developing oneself, you will not be alone. It takes courage to reach out; I am here to help you make that connection.

I specialize in working with trauma, stress, anxiety, intimacy issues, women’s sexuality, sexual compulsions and the LGBTQ community. What clients say is most important in their healing process is my holistic and mindful approach to their emotional issues. Neuroscience is now proving that focusing on thoughts and emotions is not enough to bring change when our brains are “jumbled” and we just can’t think our way out of problems. Without awareness of both our total inner and outer worlds we can't get better. So I bring body awareness, sometimes called somatic therapy, into our collaborative work together. This makes a difference!

I began as a life coach and became a therapist in 2017 because I wanted to help people in a deeper way. I adjust to your pace: maybe you are coming in with a concern about something that happened recently and you just want another person's insight on it; or maybe you have past trauma that you'd like to finally unhook from. With deeper work, I like to get an idea of your whole picture -- emotionally, psychologically and spiritually -- so I can help you reach whatever goal or resolve whatever issue you come in with.

Combined with my education, humor and understanding of human behavior, your goals can be met in a brief, solution-focused amount of time.
