Anxiety is awful: the constant worries, feelings of fear and discomfort in your body, and the continual striving for peace of mind that seems just out of your grasp. Telling yourself to just "calm down" doesn't help. For many sufferers, the behavioral effects and consequences of anxiety; including poor relationships, hair pulling or skin picking, low self esteem, shame, and/or obsessive tendencies can be devastating.

I trust that challenges, and our responses to them, hold immense wisdom AND we can really struggle with trauma, longing, patterns, or overwhelming emotions. In the work of getting curious about this stuff with you, I use my self awareness and clinical knowledge to support you in being known and attending to your heart. I love using imagination and dreams, gesture and the body, and just talking, to understand what's at the heart of your therapy. My intention is to support healing, and that your work will enable clarity, choice, the freedom to keep growing.

Blending conventional and alternative approaches I empower children, adolescents, and adults to reach their therapeutic goals. It is my belief that all children, regardless of age or race, speak their own unique language based on their unique life experiences. This language expresses who they are and what they need in order to live a more functional and productive life. My mission is to interpret that language and offer innovative strategies that foster positive growth and maturity. It is not only a challenge to change, grow, and learn. As a member of the human race, I feel it is an obligation!

People seek therapy for a variety of reasons. Life is challenging! These challenges beckon, often demand, our attention to change, self examination, and deeper understanding. Distress, discomfort and general lack of life satisfaction can be signatures of this beckoning. It is not always clear as to what or how to respond. My practice is built on a holistic, client centered, problem solving approach in identifying, and effectively managing current life challenges and healing old wounds. Skillful, compassionate support for navigating your experience of achieving wellbeing and life satisfaction is available here.

If circumstances are overwhelming you, loaded with challenges coming too rapidly, and you're doubting your ability to handle it all, this may be the right time to enlist the dedicated help of a trained and caring therapist. Depression and anxiety are common reactions when change, loss or discouragement overwhelm you. I work with each client to assist him or her to see their own value and strength as well as the blindspots that can sap your energy and joy.

I have been working with people to achieve happier and more contented lives and relationships for more than 20 years. I have a particular interest in working with people who are interested in changing habit patterns that are familiar but not working.We all have habitual patterns of doing, being, and relating that may not be what we want in our lives today yet they persist as they have been reinforced over time. Some habits we have learned stem from childhood, others we may have developed as adults.

Are you stuck in emotional pain, numbed out, or in an unsatisfying relationship? We all learn patterns of relating to ourselves, others, and the world that may no longer work. This can show up as relationship conflict or distance, depression, anxiety, grief, emptiness, confusion, or a lack of direction and meaning. What you want is more ease, joy, and satisfying relationships, with greater self connection and ability to ride the waves of life. I facilitate exploration, connection, healing and growth, as we nurture your powerful, authentic Self from which you are able to live your best life and contribute your unique gifts.

Do you wish you knew how to help your child manage big emotions? Wouldn't it be a relief to see them navigate difficult social interactions safely and confidently? Is anxiety preventing them from being the best version of themselves? Do they seem unaware of how they feel at any given moment? Or maybe their emotional reactions seem out of proportion to the situation.

***Online Therapy Available*** Life may be difficult... but when we accept this reality, our lives can change dramatically for the better. Our fear, sadness, and anger are often what keep us from facing the vital facts of our lives that need to be addressed to create the changes we want most. Fortunately, the more effective you become at soothing yourself, the more courageous you become. This is because it is often overwhelming pain and trauma that paralyzes us or leads us to mindlessly react in ways that sabotage our peace and happiness. I can teach you how to calm yourself and effectively solve the problems you face.

I believe healing is possible, and there is a path back to your truest self. The pain of life’s stressful, traumatic, and mental or physical health experiences might nudge you to mask, lash out, shut down, or use other creative strategies to survive. I’ve found that cultivating self-compassion and curious attention toward painful experience gradually gives way to spaciousness, growth, and peace. I welcome adults, teens, and children from all walks of life, including LGBTQIA+, BIPOC, and neurodiverse (Autism, ADHD, Highly Sensitive, etc) identities.

I have been working in the mental health field for over 17 years. I want to help you figure out what is getting in the way of you and the life you want to live. Painful experiences you go through can cause you to feel stuck, and this can become frustrating and at times paralyzing. Everyone experiences a range of challenges throughout their life. Addressing these challenges alone can make it difficult to move forward. I want to join you as you begin this process. I am EMDR trained and this can be a useful intervention when working with trauma.
