PLEASE NOTE: MY PRACTICE IS CURRENTLY FULL. Anxiety and depression often signal that something important is going on . . . just beneath the surface. Making sense of this pain, how it's guided you in the past, and its current role in perceiving the world, your place in it, and how to get what you truly desire is at the core of our work. Meeting weekly, or more frequently, therapy provides an environment to help reflect,understand, and grow. My experience and interest encompasses formal diagnoses (abuse history, serious mental illnesses, and trauma) or that less defined, more pervasive sense that something is just a little off.

My potential client is experiencing anxiety. This can show up as sleeplessness, repetitive worries and intrusive thoughts, overwhelm and physical symptoms, and shutting down. My potential client is experiencing burnout. This can show up as exhaustion, apathy, hopelessness, overwhelm at small things, negative self-talk, and straight-up rebellion from the body. Joy is hard to come by. My potential client is experiencing loneliness. This can come from isolation, from the removal of regular socializing, and from negative self-talk.

I currently work with individuals and couples, specializing in the areas of depression and anxiety, life transition, loss and grieving, women's health, and spirituality and creativity.
I believe in taking a developmental approach to understanding the root causes of your difficulties (understanding patterns over time) and then addressing the problem within the given context of your life. I facilitate a deep inquiry into what has blocked the healing process and help people to recognize how to create the life they desire. I believe in the innate resilience of all people to heal if given the space and time. All of my training and clinical experience inform my work and allow me to use an integrative style that is adapted to the individual needs of each client.
