Do you want to change the emotional climate of your relationship? I am passionate about working with couples to transform relationships from isolation to intimate connection, together building a safe haven. Relationships can get stuck in destructive patterns leaving couples feeling isolated in their marriage. As couples grow in self-awareness and share their more authentic and vulnerable feelings they can build a haven of safety, including increased compassion, ability to comfort each other and resolve arguments. Through the process couples discover they feel more secure with themselves and other relationships are enhanced as well. Let this be your story.

If you are considering the possibility that life can have more joy and less suffering and you are motivated to change self-defeating patterns...... you have the seeds for growth and we can work together to re-create a life filled with passion, wonder, and vitality. I offer a gentle, accepting therapeutic approach while at the same time focused on practical solutions and strategies. Whether you are 18 and in the grips of an addictive process or 65 and stuck in a bad relationship with someone (including yourself), now is the time to create change. And perhaps I can help.

I am a licensed psychologist specializing in working with ethnic minorities, survivors of trauma (specifically survivors of interpersonal trauma), and LGBTQIA+ individuals. I approach therapy from a multicultural, feminist, strength-based, and relational perspective. I will see you as a whole person with multiple (sometimes incompatible) identities. I aim to empower you to use your voice. Just like being in any other relationship, I believe the therapist-client match is very important. Together, we will work together to address the issues you are coming in with by learning more about yourself and how you interact with others.

As I enter tonight's journal entry I sit here thinking I'm not sure what happened to me. I don't feel the same anymore, not towards my spouse, not towards myself. I'm overwhelmed by the stressors of life, and they seemed to have taken over my spirit, energy and my relationships. I feel anxious, depressed, disconnected and most of all confused. I want to feel good again, I want the love of my life to see me again, I want to have confidence in myself, my marriage and most of all I want to live again. Many of us feel this way but don't express it to anyone. We begin to question is it even possible possible for any of this to change?

I work with people on a body, spirit, mind approach to mental wellness. For so long, it was believed that the mind came first, and we could talk or think our way into feeling better. My approach is looking at mental wellness from a different direction. The Body Approach: I use several somatic therapy interventions to help create safety within the body, so clients can manage their symptoms and make the changes they want in their lives. We work together to understand the states of the nervous system and apply calming techniques, such as mindfulness, movement, tapping, music, and breath.

Sometimes we find ourselves feeling overwhelmed, confused, hopeless, anxious, or "stuck in a rut". There are many reasons that these feelings and experiences may surface such as recent changes in our lives, past issues that have decided to come up unexpectedly, or difficult events we have experienced. Life throws us into these intense places and it can be extremely difficult for us in that it may impact our career, our goals, our self-care, as well as take a toll on our relationships.

Through play and music therapy, we can devise plans, which help one find their calm, and recognize worn patterns, allowing one to initiate positive change. Play and music therapy works whether you are young, transitional age, or a mature adult finding your way through changes in life. Music therapy has positive impacts reconnecting our mind, and emotions to our body through the discovery of underlying patterns and deeper psychology. These patterns sometimes cause negativity or depressive behaviors. Individuals who become aware of these patterns are better able to free their self from well-worn paths no longer serving positive ways.

Online sessions are available now. I recognize that there are fears and anxieties around Covid-19 and how it has changed the way we live in our world. School and work have looked very different for many this past year. Maybe you're feeling nervous about running your normal errands around town; events and social gatherings are cancelled, and isolation from loved ones brings sadness and grief. Feeling scared and anxious in a time of crisis is normal, and your brain is only doing what it is supposed to do - figuring out how to keep you safe from harm. It's ok if you're not sure how to manage these changes, or if you feel overwhelmed.
