I want to know what brings a smile to your face as you realize that your life is waiting to be lived. Smiles might seem a remote option at this time, or even completely forgotten. You might be in pain and you hope for change. You might even think that there is something wrong with you. There is a part in you which knows the task at hand and exactly why it is here. It knows how to be alive and how to share that being with others. I am curious about that part. I work with adults, individuals and couples.

Music therapy is intended for children, teens and adults who have a strong connection to music, play and art, and who believe that starting with their creativity & strengths can help create therapeutic change. This creative form of therapy uses music in all of its facets. No musical skills are necessary. I work with children and teens who struggle with social-emotional challenges due to trauma, life changes, learning challenges, academic/social pressures that can result in anxiety and depression. For adults, music therapy might provide a richer and more intuitive experience with which to explore and cope with anxiety and depression.

I specialize in working with those who identify as women, using somatic methods that increase awareness of the body in the present moment. These methods allow past experiences that remain "stuck," within us to be contacted in the present and internal states can begin to shift. "Stories," or habitual patterns, that keep us from experiencing optimal well-being are interrupted and replaced with new possibilities. Somatic methods are effective in addressing a variety of treatment needs such as trauma, anxiety, depression as well as challenges with children and in families.

Do you feel trapped in a daily struggle with food and your appearance? Have you made countless attempts to break free only to find yourself back in the same battle? Maybe it is difficult to imagine yourself being free when your self-worth is so closely tied to your body size, or when your relationship with food feels so out of control and when society and social media dictates the way we should look. Living this way is exhausting and draining. You do not want to feel this exhausted anymore. You want to love yourself and your body.

Therapy is many levels of psychological work from resolving conflicts, to understanding the secrets we keep from ourselves and how they impact our lives. In addition to joy and success, many of us also experience trauma, grief, fear, anxiety, depression, anger, guilt, and shame, as well as physical illness. Fortunately, these challenges are a portal to self-knowledge that allows us to grow and to learn. Therapy is working together in a collaborative process tailored to meet your needs. It leads to profound understanding about how you make sense of yourself and others in your life, and how to change the ways you impact your world.

My practice focuses on issues of self-esteem, relational intimacy, shame, personality disturbances, anxiety, depression, trauma, and life transitions. I work relationally and dynamically with a present-centered approach on issues as they are currently manifesting but with an eye to how they reflect deeper structures of clients' personalities and values. Therapy is not focused on fixing things, but on relaxing patterns of thinking, becoming more flexible in communicating emotion, building resilience, and being able to be more creative and trusting of oneself and others.

I use a variety of therapeutic methods, including Internal Family Systems, EMDR, Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP) and psychedelic integration. Psychedelic therapy allows access to deeper layers of self and accelerates progress toward personal growth and healing; it can accomplish in a short timeframe what might otherwise take years of weekly talk therapy. KAP is sliding scale ($150-$175).
