During this time I am offering the opportunity to meet with clients in the outdoors. Whether it be at a favorite space in nature (e.g. beach, park, trail) or a desire to combine being outside with movement (walk, hike, surf etc.) I believe our natural environment can support us in the healing process especially during this time of technological overload. I am also offering video and/or phone sessions for those who can not or do not wish to meet in person. I specialize in working with teens and young adults, helping them navigate the complexities of life in order to find balance and their own unique purpose.

Together, we can approach your challenges with curiosity and compassion; without judgment or shame. I can help you in learning to navigate your emotions, relationships, and work with more mindfulness, confidence, clarity, and inner peace. Personal growth can involve some growing pains, but by sharing that journey with a therapist and making therapy a part of your routine, it can feel less overwhelming. Rather than staying stuck, you can learn positive ways of coping, gain new perspectives, and live life more proactively.

Are you feeling anxious or stressed and find it hard to get out of your head? Do you feel consumed with worry? Perhaps you feel stuck in a sad place from a past loss or a present difficulty or feel little hope for the future. These feelings can cause us to isolate and feel misunderstood by others. Many times, people feel beaten down by the world and end up turning their experiences inward, feeding a harsh self-critic who makes us doubt or judge ourselves, taking us away from the power of our inner resources. When we feel disconnected to ourselves, it is harder to build trust to connect to others and the larger world.

The goal is to nurture and soothe yourself in healthy ways. You will learn to spend less time thinking about food, develop new healthy rituals and discover a sense of emotional wellbeing.

The wounds and scars of our childhood often cause us to repeat dysfunctional patterns in our attempt to heal. We don't repeat painful relationships out of masochism or familiarity; we repeat because we want a different outcome, one we believe will shift how we feel about ourselves and our past. As a psychoanalyst, I explore (not dwell on) early care-giving relationships, traumas, and other life events that shaped who you have become. As your emotional story is realized we use our therapy relationship, your current life, and ongoing awareness of your inner world to work through the stuck places and create a different future.

As a former social worker and mental health clinician for 20 years I witnessed families going through extreme circumstances of mental illness, addiction, abuse, children with serious emotional and behavioral problems at home and school, and complex custody cases through the court system. This experience taught me the importance of the therapeutic relationship, building safety and trust, open communication, working with people where they are at, and empathy. I believe it is through this process of being seen, heard, feeling valued and safe that the healing process can begin.
