I believe that healing often occurs best in the context of a safe and trusting relationship between a client and therapist. As a psychotherapist, I strive to create a secure, caring, and collaborative relationship with each of my clients so that therapy is a place they feel fully seen, heard, understood, and respected. I work from an integrative and holistic perspective, meeting each client where they are and working collaboratively with clients to reach their own personal goals and to create lasting, meaningful change and healing in their lives.

Working at a small practice like Alternative Choices allows me to use all of my training to help a variety of clients with many types of concerns and challenges. I work with individuals, families, couples or groups, from middle school age through adulthood, to address issues related to learning disabilities, attention-deficit disorder, autism spectrum, depression, anxiety, social skills, and others. I incorporate mindfulness techniques and strategies into more conventional modes of therapy to help my clients confront, tolerate, accept, and ultimately embrace difficult emotions and moods, in order to improve the quality of their lives and relationships.

Have you tried therapy before but didn't experience the change your were seeking? Or perhaps you've never seen the point of "just talking" about the painful things in your life? Somatic psychotherapy breaks the mold of traditional talk therapy by using mindfulness and body-awareness to deepen and accelerate the healing process.

Every client is unique and presents with specific struggles. Some may have relationship issues, anxiety, depression, or past/present trauma. I tailor my therapeutic approach to the individual needs of the client. However with everyone that I work with, I strive to create a nonjudgmental, warm, and accepting environment so that my clients may feel safe. I have worked with a variety of individuals whose ages ranged from the teens to their 70’s in multiple settings that included a college counseling center, inpatient and outpatient community based mental health centers, and a correctional facility.

I believe one of the bravest things we can do is to understand our story. Owning our story can bring us to self-acceptance and healing. I can help get you there. Do you feel like you’re hitting a wall? Feeling stuck in unhealthy patterns? Stuck in your past trauma? Bad relationships? You deserve more than the anger and hurt that you’re carrying with you each day. These walls you’re hitting can be broken down. We just need to take a few steps back, and face these walls together. Come in, and enjoy a cup of coffee or tea (on me) and let’s talk about it.

Growing up, I found sex and sexuality to be important parts of life that no one talked about (especially in the household I grew up in). I found myself doing lots of research regarding sex, sexuality, motherhood, gender, reproductive rights, sexual health, and sexual education. At the age of 17, I realized I often found myself listening to and supporting others; then I discovered therapy. I could finally combine my interest in sexuality and gender studies with my ability to support and listen. Instantly, I knew this was the career path for me.

"Does this support the life I am trying to create?" is a question I ask myself daily. It is important to me that our therapeutic relationship fosters a safe, accepting, and collaborative space by exploring resilience, strengths, and informed curiosity. I strive to facilitate self-empowerment and self-efficacy through adaptive coping/behavioral skills, strengthening cognitive insight, while honoring that change is hard when life gets rough. My work with individuals who have felt unheard and invalidated has led me to conceptualize concerns related to eating disorders, anxiety, depression, and substance use as closely intertwined.
