You really can have a life where you feel more connected, self assured, happier and at peace. You probably have been struggling for awhile and now you are ready to courageously face the difficulties that have kept you from living your best life. Your difficulties may stem from an unsatisfying relationship, unfulfilling job, or a history of trauma.

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.

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.

When you're not getting along with your loved one(s), everything is harder. Whether you're in conflict with your spouse, partner(s), child(ren), parent(s), sibling(s), friend(s), or coworker(s), relationship distress is consuming and painful. If you're struggling in your relationship(s), it can take a toll on your physical + mental health, your work performance, your parenting, and your overall wellbeing. If you've gotten to this point, it's essential to devote focused and compassionate attention to YOU: what you're needing and how to get your needs met, so you can enjoy your life again.

I believe people are inherently oriented to heal and grow. Sometimes on the healing journey we need support to navigate difficult transitions, especially if old traumas are clouding our current vision. My role as a psychologist is to accompany you on your personal path. I welcome people with all types of concerns. I am especially experienced in treating people struggling with trauma, eating and body image issues, depression, anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder, life transitions, relationship and parenting issues.

Our experiences and lives are each unique, filled with a rich depth of nuance and meaning. I believe one of the profound ways therapy heals is in offering space for something vitally nutritive yet rare: presence that is both committed and neutral. This both intimate and non-reactive/nonjudgmental "being with” of contact with another, and with ourselves, of simply touching and holding our experiences, I believe communicates value and holds deep power for transformation. While trauma encodes in our nervous systems, beliefs and self-talk, neuroplasticity means that our brains can change with new experiences- internal and interpersonal.

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.

Life will present us now and then with the unexpected.  This clearly is a time of major change for all of us. Not all of this is new nor is it novel. Even in the most normal of times we often do experience unwelcome events, the loss of a loved one, disability, addiction, economic insecurity, loneliness. To live is perhaps also to suffer. But we need not suffer alone. You will find me to be a compassionate, capable psychotherapist. Working together, I can help you to live a happier, more contented and fulfilling life. So then, where are you now? Where would you like to go from here? Would you like to create a new narrative?

Do you wrestle with a harsh 'inner critic'? I specialize in working with parents, couples, and young adults who have trouble with negative self-talk, despair, perfectionism or anxiety. These symptoms may be caused by painful early childhood experiences, experiences of systemic oppression, or simply high sensitivity to painful realities such as climate change. If you have struggled with the impacts of trauma, with a loud and persistent inner critic, with shame, insomnia, or with feeling "too sensitive," I am here to support you. I also offer ketamine-assisted psychotherapy (KAP) and psychedelic integration therapy.

Do you find yourself stuck, frustrated and ready to examine the deeper motivations of your current conflicts and overall behavior? You've perhaps long sensed that the problems that keep repeating in life suggest getting to the bottom of things. This is an opportunity for self-exploration in psychoanalysis which focuses on the unconscious. Uncovering deep sources of conflicts and problems you weren’t even aware of transforms damaging attachments and reopens possibilities where you may seem desperately trapped.

Therapy can be uncomfortable, and challenging for folks, because it causes them to confront unpleasant emotions or memories. Therapy can be helpful because those unpleasant things are often making people's lives difficult, and therapy can help create a place to better understand and deal with those uncomfortable things. I find that I work best with clients that want to address things that make them uncomfortable, but don't know how to do so, or are reluctant to do it alone.

As both a therapist and executive coach for 20+ years, I've intensively studied many approaches to psychotherapy and human development to be as helpful and effective as I can. Which of these approaches we'd use will depend on your unique needs and what we decide together best fits for you. I’m focused on significant progress in the short term and even more change and development over time. My approach overall is warm, accepting and personal.
