I work in a Jungian way, recognizing that we are spiritual beings on a human journey. When problems arise in our lives, we have an opportunity to more fully understand who we are and what life is asking of us. Learning the tools with which to continue on the path in a more fulfilling way is the goal of the work I will do with you: to discover new possibilities within your own reservoir of coping and problem solving skills.

Highly sensitive hearts, introverts, deep feelers, the socially anxious, and those with emotionally intense personalities are welcome here. You feel ALL the feels. All the time. Sometimes your emotions seem so powerful that you feel out of control or that it is unbearable. You form strong attachments to people, pets, places, and things but struggle with stability and security in your relationships. You are fed up with being told that you are 'too emotional', 'too needy', 'too clingy', or 'too sensitive'. Maybe you use alcohol, drugs, food, or suicidal thoughts to cope with your overwhelming emotions.

A good connection is the most important part of therapeutic work but it can be hard to find a therapist whom your child or teen enjoys meeting with. Throughout the years, I have consistently heard from parents and other professionals that kids really like coming to see me and seem to get a lot out of the relationship we establish as well as the work we do together. Using the creative arts therapies in addition to a variety of other therapeutic approaches, I work individually with children, teens, and young adults to overcome the obstacles that are getting in the way of their success in relationships, work, and school.

Amid this time of heightened emotions, we need to provide ourselves with the gift of time to slow down, be still, reflect & evaluate our current mental, emotional, physical & spiritual health. We are in survival mode, adjusting to our new normal. It's okay to mourn what you're missing right now, even if it seems minor compared to what others are going through. The mind & emotions uniquely shape a person's worldview & perception of reality. No two people have the same experience, and there is no such thing as a "one size fits all" treatment modality. You may find you want to resolve issues rooted in past hurts & break old patterns.

If you’re a teenager or a parent of a teenager, it goes without saying that your relationship with each other is far from perfect. You think, “I can’t trust them,” or “Why don’t they understand my side of this situation?” Maybe you’ve even mustered up the courage to talk with each other about the problem; but what you’d hoped would be a productive, heart-felt conversation resulted only in yelling, tears, or both. You need a space where you can express your thoughts and feelings with support from a caring professional who’s trained to treat mental health disorders as well as the day-to-day challenges faced by teens and families.
