Welcome to my practice! The goal of my work is to assist you in better understanding aspects of yourself in a safe and supportive environment. I work from a whole person relational approach, which means that I believe our early relationships, and our core thoughts and behaviors influence our current relationships and functioning. I believe that therapy can lead to powerful change and shifts that will help you take advantage of in the words of Mary Oliver “your one wild and precious life.”

"At the center of your being you have the answer; you know who you are and you know what you want" Lao Tzu Power comes from being open to exploring your inner strength as a means of gaining insight and knowledge. I strive to provide a safe, nonjudgmental, compassionate space for self-discovery. Through the Empowerment Model I use an eclectic, client centered, and strength based approach to finding healing and growth in the midst of challenges. By exploring the origin of symptoms and how they influence thoughts and behaviors we can overcome obstacles to feeling genuine health and wellness.

Confused, anxious, stuck...sound a little like how you're feeling? Is it hard for you to connect with the people you care about? Or even to connect with yourself? I get it. I work with people who are facing all sorts of challenges: self-esteem, depression, anxiety, gender or sexual identity exploration, relationship struggles, life transitions, healing from a traumatic event, or just general “stuck-ness.” And I strive to offer a space for you to be you—even if you're feeling confused, anxious, stuck or disconnected—and to help you see that you make sense.

I view successful therapy as an experience where client strengths are supported toward a preferred outcome or life direction. In our work together, I aim to engage clients collaboratively so that treatment goals are clearly understood and the pace or intensity of the process respects individual needs. I use Solution-Oriented, Narrative, Cognitive-Behavioral, family of origin perspectives, Internal Family Systems, and Energy Psychology approaches among other methods. I support couples, adults, adolescents, families and children across a broad spectrum of mental health issues. I am a provider with most insurance plans and offer fee for service when possible.

When speaking of integrated health, it involves not just the mental and emotional health but there are the spirit, body, and environment as well.

*NOT ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS* There are many reasons people seek therapy. Most likely, you're here because you're feeling out of balance in some aspect of your life. You may be looking for better ways to cope with depression or anxiety, change patterns that lead to unhealthy behaviors or relationships, or heal from a difficult or traumatic experience. Therapy can also help you gain insight about yourself, increase your sense of confidence, or help you explore a new life path with courage and intention. My hope is to provide support, tools, and encouragement to help you find greater balance, authenticity, and overall well-being.

Either working with an individual, couple or family, I come from the perspective that every person is wired for connection and seeks growth to embody their wisdom and wholeness. Individuals can heal from past experiences, move through difficult transitions, and learn to tolerate the stresses of modern life. When we are disconnected from our natural capacity, we can experience life as intolerable and forget our inherent worth. I believe in a collaborative approach to not only find relief from problems, but also to restore health and a sense of internal wholeness.

Sometimes we desperately want to change a difficult pattern in our lives but feel powerless to do so because the pattern runs deep - all the way down and through the way we view ourselves and experience the world. I help people understand how these unsatisfying patterns came to be and how they keep us stuck. Then we can see that these habitual ways of being are only one option and that there are other paths that will serve us better.

Maybe your teen or partner is depressed? Stuck on Internet Porn? Maybe you have somehow been victimized? Feel anxious, or alone? Loss of loved ones? I offer a relationship based, non-judgmental approach informed by tested, evidence-based practices, including CBT and EMDR therapies - neither of which demand medication. EMDR directly targets traumatic or hurtful memories and helps put them "in the past." This has been shown to help with anxiety/fear, panic attacks, nightmares, self-esteem issues and various other symptoms associated with post traumatic stress. CBT further offers you the chance to not be overwhelmed by your experience.

As a therapist, I wish to honor the struggle bringing you to therapy while holding the possibility for real, long lasting transformation. I see the heart of therapy being the connection we create to support the unfolding of your life. My intention is to create a space where you feel safe and capable of holding your experience in new ways. Where you can cultivate greater acceptance, curiosity and appreciation for yourself and your life. From this space of self-acceptance, you will begin to explore the ways in which your natural expression has been distorted. In essence, you will recognize and work with the blocks limiting your life.
