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.

Life is difficult, even on the best of days. Let us stop fighting reality, there are moments of heartbreak, sadness, frustration, joy, elation, fear, self-loathing, passion. My knowledge is based in reprocessing trauma, living the moments of now and exiting "the trance of unworthiness" (Tara Brach) that we live in. Radical Acceptance is described as, "Everything is as it should be, always." We are imperfect humans, I accept you exactly as you are in this moment, with care, support and compassion. Currently seeing clients ages 14+.

I practice Integrative Psychotherapy, which incorporates all aspects of the person in the change process. Many people who seek counseling do so as a result of experiencing a problem that they cannot resolve on their own. This creates difficulties in moods, behaviors, and relationships as that problem begins to drain their energy and attention. My goal is to assist you in re-connecting with a sense of balance, or integration, in your life.

Few people relish change. Sometimes life offers challenges and opportunities. Sometimes it forces change and transitions upon us. It can happen at every stage of life. However, we always have choices about how we face it and how we respond. We can go with it, flow with it and grow with it. It requires a lot of courage. It also helps to approach change with an open mind and an open heart. My approach to psychotherapy is one that is non-judgmental, compassionate, empathic, understanding, safe and supportive.

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).

My clients are children from infancy through adolescence -- and their parents and caregivers -- who want to improve their relationships and the ways they function in this difficult world. I help them understand each other, communicate, process their emotions, deal with life’s problems, and heal from past wounds, especially from trauma. Trauma can affect children’s behaviors and emotions in ways that may be surprising. They may seem withdrawn or angry or highly emotional or defiant -- and sometimes all of these in one day! Children who have not been traumatized may also run this gamut, leaving parents confused.
