Do you feel overworked, over-stressed, and overwhelmed? Many of my clients come into therapy struggling with some form of stress and anxiety, particularly stemming from an unease and dissatisfaction with how their life is going. Many feel “stuck” — uncertain on how to handle these nagging feelings. I have extensive experience working with professionals in highly demanding career fields, especially those dealing with high levels of stress and anxiety in their job. I specialize in working with Type-A, high achievers, particularly those struggling with issues such as work/life balance, perfectionism, and impostor syndrome.

I am an active psychotherapist - listening, asking questions, exploring new ways to understand your experiences and helping you find new strategies. My approach to therapy is one of warmth, empathy, insight and a focus on goal setting. The goal of therapy is to establish internal clarity, more happiness and an increased sense of success. Some people seek counseling to feel happier and more connected in their intimate relationships or relationships with friends and coworkers. I believe one can experience movement towards a whole and satisfying life with yourself, significant others and the world at large.

My lived experiences of being a queer, non-binary, immigrant, person of color navigating the world and the trauma that comes with that, have led me here. I use a strength-based/anti-oppressive/decolonized approach to build on your own inner strengths, identify and rewire unhelpful beliefs/thoughts, and help you access your strengths and skills to reach your goals.

We are all seeking some sort of reliable refuge. Most of us have internalized the notion that refuge is to be found in external phenomena – other people, places and things. While these external phenomena can be pleasing, reality demonstrates that these phenomena are inherently impermanent and unsatisfactory. In addition, most of us have internalized our likes and dislikes in a way that have given rise to a crystallized belief in the existence of one’s self, the defense and protection of which has come to dictate much of our decision-making through adulthood.

Living in a pandemic has been challenging. A lot of old feelings that we have gotten pretty good at avoiding have been harder to dismiss, and this current way of coping may feel less manageable. You may find yourself facing new challenges, or your emotional wellbeing and/or relationships are struggling. While these past few years in particular have been hard, now can also be an ideal time to start or restart psychotherapy. Change is happening on a large scale around us, and we are presented with a great opportunity to move with that change.

I specialize in critical therapeutic services for children & adults. I provide strength-based, collaborative & non-diagnostic psychotherapy which focuses on cultivating resilience & insight. The cornerstone of my practice was built on exploring embedded issues of loss & shame that impact identity and are exacerbated by race, class, gender, learning differences & socio/cultural conditions. I work with people of all ages, backgrounds, orientations & ethnicities. My practice was refined through my work serving persons harmed through the provisions of systems: educational, criminal justice, foster-care and/or military systems.

I’m not beating around the bush here: things are pretty messed up right now. And when it feels like the world is on fire, of course you’re going to be freaking out. Maybe your life seemed fine until recently, and maybe you’ve been struggling longer than you can remember. Either way, I am here to help. I work with all ages, genders, sexualities, racial backgrounds, cultures, and subcultures. From work stress to identity crises, communication problems to childhood trauma, all issues need space to breathe, and a big part of that is finding a therapist you can be real with.

During challenging times, people often feel defeated and focus on what is wrong. I want to shift the focus from what is "not working" to identifying what is "working." We will work to uncover patterns (behavioral, thought beliefs, relationship), that will lead you to making better decisions. I want to offer a safe place to process thoughts and feelings around issues that can be challenging. I am interested in helping people who experience stress, anxiety, depression, trauma, grief/loss and challenges with relationships (social or romantic). Many conversations are around “adulting” and how to manage life, career, relationships, etc.

Treating individuals who struggle with an eating disorder takes a provider who has extensive experience in the treatment of eating disorders. One who understands the complexity and power of the eating disorder, and the patience and understanding that is needed to support an individual on the challenging journey towards recovery, maintaining recovery, and relapse prevention. Most often, this journey involves not only the client, but their family and support system as well.

Hypnotherapy harnesses the power of the subconscious mind, and combined with holistic counseling, releases trauma and self-defeating thoughts, by consciously witnessing and resolving the past, Desirable qualities such as confidence, resilience, strength, and well-being can be accessed as they are natural qualities to experience when the mind turns away from negativity and fear toward trust and wholeness. It requires a shift of attention from the conditioned mind to the real presence of your own authentic self which is always here, underneath the habits. The Body/Mind Transformation process allows you make this shift.

For three decades I have been privileged as a marriage and family therapist to make a difference in people's lives. Though I am most known for being a Jungian-oriented therapist and author, my training in pastoral counseling and spiritual direction, my experience in long-term psychodynamic treatment, and my long-standing interest in all the many forms and expressions of human sexuality, as an "out" gay therapist and activist, are areas of expertise that come together in my work to help clients find a way to be their deepest, healthiest and most authentic selves.
