When it's an uphill battle to manage anxiety, low self-worth or impulsive self-sabotaging habits, it’s probably time to get some help. Life doesn't need to feel so hard. I facilitate the wisdom and drive to heal already inside you. It's normal to feel transformation may be out of reach. But I have helped many people thrive. Impulses, emotional overwhelm and habits often get "updated." It's common to feel more ease, self-accepting and empowered to make key changes. I excel at supporting and guiding my clients along their path. Many indicate they feel refreshed, transformed and nourished. Feel free to call. I'd love to tell you more.

I practice Mindfulness and Somatic based Cognitive Therapy to help treat Anxiety, Depression, Trauma, Relationship, and life's woes. Together we will understand what causes your suffering and create change. Our traumas, difficult relationships, COVID, loss, and heartache, can all be confusing and debilitating and influence us to live patterns of suffering through our behaviors, beliefs, habitual thinking and life circumstances. By discovering and practicing new behaviors you will learn how to relate to your thoughts, emotions, and body in a manner that allows you to live the life that you want to be living.

IS YOUR RELATIONSHIP TOO GOOD TO LEAVE AND TOO BAD TO STAY? Are you wondering what happened to your relationship? Do you feel as though you and your partner are on different paths? Are you having the same arguments over and over again? Are you lonely and sad? Deciding whether or not a relationship is worth saving can be difficult. There is so much to consider. What I know is that coming to counseling is the best way to talk about your questions and fears. It's normal for people in relationships to go through periods of being closer together or further apart.

I believe that coming to therapy is about making a home in ourselves: a home where we feel at ease, where all the different parts of us are okay and we don't feel that something is wrong with who we are. When life gets hard we can feel isolated and cutoff - from the people around us, and also from ourselves. When we most need to feel compassion towards ourselves it can be hardest to find. My work is to help you find that compassion for yourself and to support you in strengthening your capacity to meet whatever life brings with courage and confidence.

We often come to therapy in crisis. Something has gone wrong in a relationship. Major, disorienting life transitions are underway. Emotional experiences are becoming increasingly overwhelming. Life seems stuck, static, depressing. Anxiety is on the rise. A series of events have altered our course. We are feeling lost. Therapy can offer a soothing lifeboat for these rough seas. Often crisis is a wake up call, a time for necessary change, new growth, a reconnoitering of the landscape, a vivid reorientation. My practice is designed to move you from crisis to care, from care to confidence, confidence to creative, enlivening capacity.

I help people lead an examined life. Our difficulties come and go, but there's wisdom in using them to learn about ourselves more deeply. This allows us to navigate life's challenges with more grace, and less pain and a lot more humor. Therapy is a funny thing. It's two people, in a room, agreeing to focus on improving one of their lives. Sounds astoundingly simple. When it works, it can offer profound, lasting, and substantial changes in one's life and, in the best case, allow you to develop depth, wisdom, and clarity. I work with people in tech, and leaders, artists and seekers who are looking to lead a vital and integrated life.

Do you have a hard time speaking up and expressing yourself? When you anticipate a conflict or someone who may have a differing opinion than you, do you tend to keep quiet to maintain the peace? The world sees you as gentle and kind. You are capable, accountable, and have achieved a lot. But There is more fire in you that wants to come out and make things happen. I can help you access the other parts of you that the world doesn’t get to see, the parts that you don’t acknowledge in you but can see and admire in others. Once these parts are allowed to come out, they can help you navigate life with less doubt, more ease, and clarity.

I see therapy as an opportunity for self discovery, healing and a safe space to move towards our growing edges. My approach is mindfulness based and collaborative. Together we can explore the narratives and relational patterns that may be getting in the way of our personal growth or intimacy with other. Through a somatic approach (integration of mind-heart-body), we arrive into a more empowered and embodied sense of being.

Taking the first step on your journey to healing can often stir up old, familiar, and unwanted feelings, some of which may be present as you're reading this. There are many factors that can lead a person to therapy. Perhaps you’re experiencing a persistent feeling of fear, loneliness, or anxiety, but can’t quite put your finger on where it’s coming from. You may have experienced a recent change or loss of a loved one, relationship, or job that is profoundly impacting you. Or, it could be that the voice of your inner critic is so loud that they/she/he is all you hear.

Do negative thoughts interfere with your self-esteem? relationships? moods? I can help. I specialize in helping women recognize & amplify inner resources to recover from trauma, anxiety, and depression while attending to the important relationships in their lives. I inherently operate personally and professionally with a social justice lens which means that therapy cannot be separated from familial, societal, and religious conditioning we experience as unique beings on this planet. As a mixed-heritage lesbian, I appreciate the ways internalized oppression can show up in our efforts to maintain mental and emotional health.

Each session, we begin with what's most present for you, following aliveness as it unfolds - moment-to-moment, wherever it leads. The process has its own intelligence and is highly trustworthy. You bring all of you - light and shadow, blessings and challenges, interests and needs - as well as whatever hurts, feels stuck, or is ready to be released or reclaimed.
