My work with children and families is based on building safe, supportive relationships. I carefully consider individual, couple and family strengths and needs, providing therapeutic direction based upon this. A combination of child development, mindfulness, and family systems informs my work. I use play therapy, sandtray, narrative-storytelling tools, practical skill building, arts, and parent coaching in my practice. The power of relationships and the recognition of one's strengths are emphasized throughout our work together.

Are you feeling increasingly lonely, stuck, or overwhelmed? While we are built to survive and adapt, all of us at some point will likely struggle with change, loss, traumatic stress, intrusive worries, mood swings, relationship difficulties, or self-defeating patterns. We look inside and out for support, relief, and perspective, to help us at work, school, home and in-between. This search can often be exausting and frustrating, which can lead to the wise and couragous choice to ask for help.

You want more out of life. Maybe you want to be more happy or less anxious or maybe you want a better quality of life or to grow in a new direction. It can be confusing because your life is not miserable but it just isn't what you hoped for. You gave and you continue to give but you're just not feeling the joy. Its starting to get you down and you find yourself escaping to Facebook and Instagram or getting lost in another Netflix series because you're bored or maybe it helps you mange the anxiety that pushes into your throat when you actually sit and think about where you are, how you got here and where you are going (or not going).

Sometimes we all need to be heard. We need someone to hold space for us so that we can share our experiences and process our hurt and losses. Parents, caregivers and those in helping professions spend a great deal of their time holding space for others. Doing this work can sometimes leave a person feeling empty, tired, and unappreciated. Helping, caregiving and parenting often trigger intense feelings related to past difficulties. The role of a parent, caregiver and/or helper can expose one to new trauma that needs and deserves to be addressed. You deserve to be witnessed and heard the way you witness, hear and honor others.

Human beings are resilient. They survive unimaginable things through resourceful measures, though these can be incomprehensible to others. Sometimes, the very things people do to get through tough times can result in negative consequences (for example: addictions, people-pleasing, perfectionism, suicidal behaviors, or avoidance). Recognizing this, some seek therapy to find different ways to thrive that cause less disruption in their lives and/or less harm to themselves. Some people use therapy to process events from earlier years while others focus on adjusting current behaviors. There is no wrong way on the path toward healing.

It becomes consuming, costing you time with loved ones and friends, money, sense of peace, sleep, pleasure, joy, or your health and you want nothing more than to be yourself again; maybe even find yourself for the first time ever.

It is my privilege to accompany my clients in their process of establishing balance and integration, ultimately achieving a sense of wholeness and security. I recognize that sometimes talk therapy isn't enough so I use a variety of additional therapies, including EMDR, which facilitate change by reprocessing emotionally-charged memories or experiences that often show up as physical sensations in the body.
