I enable clients to access the wisdom of their emotions to enhance their relationships and lives. Happy relationships and solid self-esteem are the foundations of psychological and emotional well-being, while disharmony, worries, and unhappiness signal that we need to experience new ways to effectively express feelings and enact aspirations in our lives. I strive to provide an inviting and nonjudgmental therapeutic context to empower clients to find satisfying ways to address concerns. My integrative approach draws upon Western science and Eastern wisdom, including Buddhist approaches to well-being.

I work with individuals and couples with a variety of emotional and interpersonal concerns. I have a particular interest in working with issues around intimacy, sexuality, and identity. Sexual difficulties and dissatisfaction are surprisingly common. In fact, most of us will experience some sexual difficulties even in the best of relationships and at the best of times. However, misunderstood and unaddressed sexual difficulties can have a domino effect, negatively impacting how you view yourself, your partner, and your relationship. The result often entails unnecessary feelings of disconnection, frustration, anxiety, and shame, not to mention the loss of your sex life!

There may be times when we feel disconnected from others – or worse, ourselves; when we’re overwhelmed and crave calmness and connection; when we feel stuck and desire change but don’t know how to make a move; when we can't manage what we’re feeling or thinking, and it’s too much to carry alone. There may be times when we carry shame and/or self-doubt; when we don’t feel we fit in or are having difficulty finding our voice, our community, or our life’s work. Or, perhaps, things are going ok but we’re curious about our creativity or spirituality and are seeking ways to integrate these missing aspects into our daily lives.

If there was ever a time to connect with a therapis, it's now. It's okay that you are feeling anxious, confused, depressed, scared and unsure of how to navigate our 'new normal'. What matters is that we don't get overwhelmed by these emotions. It's important to not isolate from the world. It's okay if you need some extra support right now. You can learn to take care of your mental health so that you can be there to support your family and friends. Honestly? I think everyone could use some extra support at this time.

I am here to partner with you on what can often feel like an uncomfortable journey of self-reflection with a trauma-informed, healing-centered approach. I recognize that layers of shame, fear, trauma, and unfulfilling attachments throughout your young and adult life can often create unhealthy behavioral patterns despite your best intentions to problem-solve and relieve yourself from uncomfortable emotions. I believe you are capable of change and worthy of love and acceptance.

I offer a personalized blend of therapy that balances support with skill coaching, and attends to one’s mind-body-spirit-community experience.
