I also work with individuals! I have 3 main specialties: trauma healing, transition & gender exploration, and supporting adults with ADHD or autism in navigating a world not set up to accommodate to your needs.
Currently full up and not accepting new clients! - In couples therapy with me, I help by teaching you communication strategies to help lessen defensiveness and increase empathy and warmth in your relationship. I intervene to stop or change interactions that are keeping you from getting the connection you want. I provide mediation and structure for difficult conversations. And by teaching in-the-moment self-regulation and co-regulation techniques, I help you and your partner to speak from and listen with your best selves.

I'm experienced helping individuals who suffered childhood trauma , neglect and abuse.
I work with people who find themselves, often unexpectedly, in the midst of a crisis: feeling anxious, depressed or alone. Perhaps you're facing a sudden loss or illness, conflict in a relationship, or struggling to find your place in the world. You may have lost connection with what is meaningful and enlivening in your life. Starting where you are and listening carefully to the stories of your life, your dreams, desires and distress, we try to make sense of it together. My hope is that as we discover and engage with lost or dormant parts of your deeper self you'll begin to know who you are and who you are becoming in new ways.

in psychology, I work in teaching, and clinical practice to help patients understand themselves and cope with day-to-day issues, mental illness, trauma , abuse, addiction, and grief.
I am devoted to guiding those that are called to improve their lives, whether it is to become the first in their family to be a college graduate, to rise to the challenge of becoming a professional in their field of choice, or to overcome years of negative self esteem. My clients want to find positive connection with themselves, their partners, their families, and communities. My clients have often experienced traumatic events but I have taught them about and shared tools which give them control over how those events affect them, finding peace and strength out of difficult experiences.

I work to build a warm, empathic relationship with my clients to create an environment where we can think together about the issues that bring you to therapy and how best to resolve them. I am informed by psychodynamic theory and utilize this rich tradition to explore unconscious defenses, maladaptive patterns and underlying schemas that can cause a person to repeat problematic behaviors despite their best efforts to change. I also draw from Cognitive Behavioral and Mindfullness practices to support clients with acquiring the tools they need to make those changes.

I am a somatic therapist and integrate Sensorimotor Psychotherapy for the treatment of trauma into my work, Hakomi method, Buddhist Psychology as well as PACT couples therapy.
We learn to survive and cope with our circumstances in the best way we know how at the time. Therapy offers an opportunity to slow down and get to know what is really going on inside and to learn to listen to your body's natural wisdom. I am interested in collaborating with you to explore where you're feeling stuck, confused or overwhelmed. I can help guide you to discover new, more effective ways of showing up for yourself and in your relationships. My own love of nature and mindfulness meditation practice informs much of my work with clients.

Throughout our lives, we all have experienced feelings of depression, anxiety, and anger. These emotions leave you feeling insecure, shameful, lonely, unworthy and stuck in unhealthy patterns of behavior. Trauma can have negative emotional and physical effects and can lead to family/relationship issues. I specialize in solution-focused brief therapy, motivational interviewing, mindfulness and CBT. These approaches allow me to work with the client to decrease symptoms of anxiety and depression and other health/behavioral issues.

Some arrive to therapy seek deeper understanding in their lives, while others hope to navigate painful threads in their relationships and inner worlds. Perhaps above all, many come to pursue some form of relief, growth, or change. As a therapist with a focus on developmental trauma , I believe that early life experiences and ongoing structural contexts immensely inform our relationship to ourselves and each other. I hold this framework in combination with my background in somatic psychotherapy, which considers the ways our bodies and nervous systems relate to our emotions and experiences.

The pain, grief, stress, and trauma is literally held in our bodies and our tissues.
You have lost so much in your life, but your biggest loss has been your sense of self. Early on, you learned that it wasn’t safe to be who you are, or be in your skin or your body. So you run away from yourself and become an overachiever in work and in relationships. This hustling for worthiness has left you feeling abandoned and exhausted. You want to trust. You want to heal. You want to be able to dive deep into the beauty of life and laughter that you know is around you. Without knowing yourself, what your heart sounds and feels like - how will you build satisfying relationships and create a life that truly fills you up?

Our therapy will be informed by my understanding of human development and the long-term impact of early experience, including early family relations, emotionally-troubled parents, trauma , and the spectrum of life experiences that leave lasting scars.
I have extensive experience working with adults and children as young as 3. I specialize in helping children other therapists describe as "difficult to treat," including children who are traumatized, emotionally unregulated, physically aggressive, or have difficulty connecting with adults and caregivers. I will work with your child whose needs have not been met in schools or by other therapists. I help children through play, physical movement, games, art, and words. I help overwhelmed parents with sound psychological guidance. I have fourteen years' experience and I teach and train other therapists.
