Choosing a therapist can be intimidating, especially for people of color. We might wonder if our therapist will understand the significant role of various cultural factors in our experience. I believe each individual brings with them a set of unique experiences, values, and goals, regardless of background. Perhaps you are an individual looking for a safe space to explore your identity, including ethnicity and gender. Maybe you are already in couples therapy and want the dedicated support of your own individual sessions. Or maybe you are having difficulty communicating with family members due to generational differences.

Beginning a course of therapy, whether for yourself or for your child, is an act of loving commitment. I see therapy as a collaborative process, something we do together as you or your child navigate through stuck patterns and toward health and wholeness. My style is warm, relational, and sincere. With both child and adult clients, I work actively with thoughts, emotions, and body sensations. My office is calming and inviting, and equipped for both play therapy with children, and hands-on somatic therapy with adults. We can do either brief goal-oriented work or longer-term depth work.

The early years of parenthood can be simultaneously some of the most rich and challenging in our lives. My passion is in helping new parents through the big choices and feelings in raising a new human being, while also nurturing the parent, partner and person they most wish to be. There are often unforeseen challenges that occur at the very time we are most depleted and stretched thin, and difficulties in putting words to and communicating our needs to our partner. I'd love to help you feel supported and understood so that you can parent from a place of greater strength and confidence.

When individuals, couples, families or children make the difficult decision to come to therapy they are usually feeling stuck and often scared. Each of us has our own strength and wisdom which we don't see when we are troubled. My goal is for us to work together to rediscover those qualities. I use a cattail plant as a symbol of how I see therapy. Why? Cattails are found stuck in a marsh and often regarded as weeds. But when looked at carefully they are graceful and strong. Let me help you find your strength and grace.

Choosing a therapist and beginning therapy isn't easy. The first step is recognizing the feeling that you don't want to be alone in working on your challenges. My commitment is to help you find out whether I might be a good match as your therapist, and to be your guide in the process of getting support. I work particularly well with anyone who is negotiating difficult life cycle transitions--from challenges of beginning school, moving or dealing with loss to the strains of adolescence, marriage or divorce or the demands of aging and caring for aging parents.

I'm a psychotherapist, relationship specialist, wife and mom. Many of us can recognize patterns of our behavior that used to be helpful but now get in the way in the relationships we want. In many ways navigating difficult circumstances allowed us to survive or even thrive, but the ways we cope now don’t benefit us in the long run. These interactions can surprise us at times because while our lives can feel full and abundant, we also can feel sadness, resentment, and worry.

Change is often difficult. You might be seeking therapy because your best efforts to change yourself or your relationships have proven unsuccessful. You may be in the grip of emotions that seem beyond your control and understanding; these might include feelings of sadness, anger, loneliness, fear or self-destructiveness. We will work together to better understand the meaning of the feelings and behaviors that have become problematic, to help recognize old patterns that block growth, and make way for deep and lasting change.
