I have extensive experience with supporting people process the loss of a child or a pregnancy. I specialize in helping parents who have a child with special needs, medical trauma or learning disabilities. All of these life events bring with it sadness, grief and anger. It is so common to feel alone and isolated and like you are the only one who has ever experienced these challenges. It is so hard to not have answers of what the future holds and to grieve what you thought your life would look like. It is normal to feel depressed, anxious and overwhelmed. These are things that I can help you process through therapy.

I work with individuals and couples who are ready to do the hard work of creating change. I believe all people have the capacity to slow down and be more mindful; both in how we talk to ourselves and others, and in how we choose our next steps. I support the process of creating helpful coping skills and affirmations, while also getting to the root of what created the thoughts and behavior in the first place. Patterns of behavior are often carried out unintentionally, and learned at a young age. Understanding the past gives clarity to the present. A clearer present allows us to build a life with more intention and purpose.

My approach is rooted in the belief that how we relate to ourselves mirrors how we experience life and develop relationships. Not many of us were taught how to compassionately attend to our painful feelings, critical thoughts, or impulsive behaviors. Instead, we may have been scolded, shamed, or sent away for showing big feelings such as anger or sadness, praised for being self-reliant, or withdrawn from by parents who did not have the capacity to be with our feelings. When we can begin to shift from judgment and avoidance of the parts of ourselves that we may not approve of to curiosity; healing can begin.

[My schedule is full. Please contact my group practice's Get In Touch form to see if other clinicians may have openings] You may be considering therapy because you feel stuck or dissatisfied about some parts of your life. You might be aware of the person you want to be and can be, but something is getting in the way of that and you would like to understand what. Or, you might need a place to talk about difficult experiences so you can make sense of them. As someone who truly believes in the healing power of therapy, I am glad you are considering it as a way of reaching your potential, regardless of whom you choose as your therapist.

Psychotherapy and counseling for individuals and groups regarding life issues: work, aging, health, body, personal relationships, finances and experiencing the Self. My integrative approach can reduce anxiety and depression; move blocked cellular energy; heal loss and grief; transform relationship. Coping skills are formed early to survive in family-of-origin and the culture. As we age, these coping skills become less adaptive, causing pain. Successful transition through life involves changing our ways of coping to keep what works and release what does not, replacing with skills which enhance life.

Since I provide online therapy, that’s actually possible. I will show you how to be vulnerable and authentic by being that way myself. I will give you direct feedback. You can say whatever you want and I will listen without judgement!

Our stories contain places of both profound beauty and deep pain. Maybe you're feeling stuck in the places of pain. Maybe it feels difficult to see any beauty at all, and the hope for things to be different feels fleeting at best. It is my hope that through building a safe trusting relationship, we can work together to bring greater flourishing and holistic healing in your relationship with yourself and with others. I enjoy working with all ages utilizing an attachment theory and family systems theory framework while integrating elements from modalities such as Emotion-Focused Therapy and behavioral therapies such as CBT.

Working together we can help you with what gets you into trouble, being stuck, a loss, difficulties in a relationship, and achieving your goals. If you are a parent, we will work together to reestablish optimal development and family functioning. Therapy works in many ways. It helps us surrender unhelpful ways of protecting ourselves, learn how to be increasingly self-reflective, develop greater capacities to repair ourselves and our relationships, and augment resilience and happiness. I believe that the deepest understanding and change comes from knowing oneself better, becoming increasingly self-reflective, and experiencing oneself differently in the context of a relationship.

You are likely searching for a therapist because there is something in your life that is not working well. You may be feeling overwhelmed, distressed, hopeless, or noticing things in your life or in your relationships that you no longer find satisfying. Therapy provides time to consider who you are; it is a collaborative conversation that helps you to explore the ways your experiences have shaped your beliefs, feelings, and assumptions, and to identify the factors which prevent you from making the changes you desire in your life.
