I've found it helpful in my practice to be direct and to the point, while maintaining professional and nurturing relationships with my clients. I believe strongly in modeling healthy boundaries, and helping clients to strengthen their own. I love what I do, and I know my clients can sense that. I think my clients can also sense the great respect I have for them. Asking for help is never easy. Especially when one feels vulnerable.

"We cultivate love when we allow our most vulnerable and powerful selves to be deeply seen and known, and when we honor the spiritual connection that grows from that offering with trust, respect, kindness and affection." -Brené Brown. So often it is the sense of connection between us that leads to, or at least contributes to, our distress. As a marriage and family therapist, I believe it is important to help individuals, couples, and families to be able to connect more authentically, developing healthy boundaries which allow for a balance of connection and autonomy.

Relationships are hard work. Sometimes we need help processing emotions and allowing our wounds to heal. Therapy can help unpack years of sweeping things under the rug, or simply equip you with skills to have more fulfilling relationships. In addition to couples therapy, I enjoy working with individual women dealing with transitional issues, anxiety & depression, and self improvement. I have a clinical interest in conflict resolution, parenting, grief & loss, infertility, and long term illness. I also have experience in corporate settings, providing therapy after workplace trauma.

Life can be overwhelming! Sometimes we feel like we don’t measure up or fit in. We can start to feel tired and alone. Maybe we can’t seem to concentrate on work, school or other important areas of our lives. Sometimes what seems like a simple task for others makes us feel nervous and overwhelmed. A therapist is both a safety net and a guide, someone to help you discover and recover from what life throws at you. I will strive to make the time spent together a safe place for you to learn more about you, your uniqueness, and your strengths.

Do your emotions sometimes feel “bigger” than you expected? Is your inner critic sometimes the loudest voice in your head? Does perfectionism make completing tasks painful and complicated? Are stuck beliefs causing you to repeat patterns that you desperately want to stop, but you don’t know how? I can support you in unpacking these difficult questions and more, as we get to the root causes and make lasting change. Together, we’ll process the experiences that caused these beliefs, and we’ll tap into your inner strength and resilience to forge a new pathway. As a trauma-informed therapist, I support people in overcoming events in their lives that have had a significant or traumatic impact on them. Violence, neglect, loss, injury, illness, medical procedures, divorce/separation, infidelity, hurtful words from a caregiver or other loved one—any of these can leave a lasting impact. I provide a safe space in which to heal trauma. I recognize that a lot of what we call "symptoms" or "disorders" are actually resourceful and protective responses to danger, that have only become problematic as they got stuck on "autopilot"; naming them as such is an essential step toward healing.
