You really can have a life where you feel more connected, self assured, happier and at peace. You probably have been struggling for awhile and now you are ready to courageously face the difficulties that have kept you from living your best life. Your difficulties may stem from an unsatisfying relationship, unfulfilling job, history of trauma, or you may be worried about your child.

You don’t have to look like someone with an eating disorder (ED) to have one. Eating disorders not only affect: young, white, cisgender, middle-upper class women; it affects all races, genders, and socioeconomic backgrounds. As a QTPOC, you have likely been discouraged by stereotypes, lack of access to treatment, and lack of support within the ED community. If you are ready to change, but unsure how. If you feel alone, or doubt your capacity to change. You are NOT alone. I know how difficult the first step can seem. Know you are not walking this path alone. We will walk together on your journey to true transformation.

I provide individual therapy for adults who are seeking to heal prior family wounds and traumas, improve their current relationships and quality of life, and are seeking support during times of transition - especially to parenthood. My personal belief is that there are three things that cause an immense amount of suffering for most people; 1) our inability to effectively identify, feel, and communicate our emotions, 2) our difficulty with tolerating uncertainty, and 3) our tendency to get stuck in patterns of rigidity. My work tends to be emotion-focused, helping clients to live more freely and flexibly.

Are you anxious, depressed and tired? Are you feeling emotional for no reason? Feeling disoriented and lonely? Questioning everything in your life? I help people to deeply listen inside and let their choices be based on what is true for them. While pain and emotions are part of being human, suffering can be minimized by allowing what is inside of us to be expressed and find acceptance in our experiences. I support you to move through trauma, anxiety, anger and depression to empowerment. Stress-management is part of the work and looking at communication with ourselves and others to have fulfilling relationships.

Partners know something doesn’t feel quite right with their relationship. Maybe they’re arguing a lot, or feeling annoyed with each other for no good reason. Or, worse yet, they’re bored with one another. Maybe there just doesn’t seem to be as much juice between them as there used to be. Maybe their sex life has dwindled. Maybe they are having a hard time adapting together to health challenges, kids, job stresses, or other issues. They may not be clear if counseling will help, but they do want to get underneath all that stuff and rekindle their love. If they’re wondering whether they should try couples counseling, then they should.

As a psychologist, I provide a bridge between traditional psychotherapy and alternative modalities, in a highly individualized approach.Hypnotherapy integrated with psychotherapy can effectively reduce stress and anxiety, while resolving issues of relationships, career, health, or self-development. Hypnosis is a natural way to empower you to "change your brain." Release negative beliefs, shift self-defeating habits to life enhancing ones, discover your "source self" and utilize creative inner resources that you may not even be aware you have.

Maybe you are pursuing something important--a relationship, career, education; yet you find yourself overwhelmed, depressed, angry, or stuck. Maybe you act differently to meet others' expectations, win approval, avoid being picked on, or just to fit in. This act of contorting one’s self can be taxing! Sometimes past trauma can impact meaningful relationship-building, can interrupt pursuing life goals, and stifle growing into our truest selves. Therapy offers an opportunity identify these pieces. Together we can sort through them in an effort to build insight and help you embody the most empowered and authentic version of yourself.

I am working with only couples and adult family members at this time, I am not taking individual clients. I invite couples (with an emphasis on lesbian and gay couples) as well as adult children and their parents to develop more honest and compassionate ways of relating. Sessions often begin with a check-in - what is happening right now, and what are the issues that you may want to work on. That is followed by a free flowing discussion. My aim is to provide a safe container where feelings and ideas can be expressed and received.

Thank you for taking the time to review my profile. Finding a therapist is easy, but finding the "right" therapist during a difficult time in your life is not at all easy. I've been in private practice for over 35 years and have seen individuals, couples and families dealing with a wide spectrum of issues. Over and over again, I've been pleased to hear how quickly my clients felt a sense of "connection" with me in working on their problems. This connection is an essential element of a successful outcome.
