Everyone comes to psychotherapy with unique needs, difficulties, and strengths. My focus is working with men and women experiencing traumatic stress, addiction , depression, chronic or terminal illness, and relationship problems. My approach is holistic. Together with clients I work to ease distress, build on strengths already present, gain insights, and cultivate relating to yourself and other people in life-enhancing ways.

I am a family systems psychotherapist working with individuals and families confronting complex mental health, behavioral, substance abuse and relational challenges that often break families apart. I support individuals and families towards finding sustainable solutions that restore trust, connection and peace. My style is relational, warm and direct. Together we seek to uncover roots causes while I use a trauma and attachment informed lens to collaborate with you towards healing and resolution. My formal training and clinical experience lend well to both solution-focused work as well as depthful healing.

Are you feeling depressed, anxious, struggling with relationship conflict or substances? Sometimes, the very strategies we use to feel safe, to belong, to get approval, and to feel loved – to survive – no longer serve us. When we try to carry these strategies into adulthood, it can lead to high conflict, challenging behaviors, anxiety, depression, and substance use. For couples and families, I work from an Emotion Focused Therapy approach exploring clients' reactivity, triggers, and hurts that underlie conflict and helping them find other ways to respond that lead to more trust, intimacy and connectedness.

I enjoy working with individuals, couples, and families of diverse backgrounds to successfully overcome a variety of problems, including depressive, anxiety, trauma- and stressor-related, eating, obsessive-compulsive, substance use and addictive disorders; difficulties with interpersonal relationships or life transitions; and challenges related to education or employment. However, there is no prerequisite for engaging in therapy, which can be a preemptive measure to care for and strengthen psychological and emotional well-being, a catalyst for personal development and self-actualization, and mechanism to enhance quality of life.

My predominant specialty areas are in trauma/PTSD, addiction , and perinatal mental health.
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.

I began my career as an addiction counselor, and that work remains a passion.
I came to this field when I began my recovery 15 years ago, feeling that my lived experience would be greatly beneficial for others struggling to find new ways of being. I believe we all want to be our best selves, and have the capacity for real change. It is my honor to support and facilitate that process, working in genuine collaboration with my clients, and to offer unconditional respect and compassion through the transformation. We can work together on priorities you identify, in a way that suits you. ***I offer a free initial 30 minute session***

Additionally I bring significant experience to my work with individuals addressing addiction to alcohol and substance use, sexually compulsive behavior, severe depression, and anxiety.
I am an Advanced Level Emotionally Focused Couples Therapist, (EFT) and I specialize in working with couples to address and remedy destructive communication, breaches in trust, infidelity issues, premarital counseling, and sexual incompatibility. Most couples discover they are stuck in a negative cycle of communication that lead to behaviors and reactive responses that take on a life of their own. This can lead to feelings of disconnection, loneliness and distress. My approach allows couples exit negative cycles of communication and to transform their relationship into one that is more secure, intimate and deeply connected.

I offer decades of experience working with LGBTQ-related issues, including gender-diversity, parents of trans-children, HIV/AIDS, substance use and abuse, trauma, family conflict and relationship difficulties.
Do you find yourself in a pattern of repeated conflicts with your partner? Repetition in relationships is often a signal that something needs to be addressed. Individual or couples' therapy is an opportunity to dig deeper into repetitive patterns and understand their origin. I can help you navigate them more functionally if they recur. Whether you are an individual or a couple, gay or straight, monogamous or open - I can help you find your way to a better understanding of yourself and your relationships with an emphasis on practicing kindness, care, and respect. Insights gathered from therapy can be of benefit for a lifetime.

My areas of expertise include depression, relationship issues, anxiety, trauma, substance use disorders, neurodiversity and LBGT issues.
At many junctures in life, we all find ourselves in a place of confusion, hurt and wanting to learn more about ourselves and how to find a way through it. Therapy can be a helpful place for reflection and exploration. Themes that often come up in my work with clients are life transitions, desire to improve relationships and coping with stress/trauma. I view my role as that of facilitator to gently guide you as you gain better understanding of what your needs are. As this process requires great vulnerability and trust, the therapeutic relationship is an essential piece to be able to do this hard and important work.

I have several years of experience specializing in the areas of sexuality, gender, LGBT issues, addiction , and chronic illness, with both adults and adolescents.
Do you feel lost, questioning who you are or where you're going with no easy answers? Sometimes life takes an unexpected turn, we hit a bottom, or we just realize that something in us is different...or something must change. Such times of confusion and crisis are often the meeting point for our work together. They are also openings to self-discovery and real change. I listen deeply for what you want, develop a relationship of trust, and work WITH you to establish the clarity and direction you need.

I have worked with adult individuals for over seventeen years and specialize in helping people live more conscious, meaningful and contented lives. Learning about the source of anxiety or deep feelings of sadness; sorting through relational issues; bringing awareness to coping mechanisms that aren't working anymore such as substance use or over eating - these are a few of the ways therapy can help you gain more balance and well-being in your life.

Addiction is a complex illness that has a lasting impact on a person and their entire family. Everyone's best intentions to heal or change can often result in outcomes that perpetuate suffering. The addiction cycle can feel like a rollercoaster with fleeting to no progress, or worse. There is a way off this ride. At Marin Family Recovery, we believe that a person's ability to change their life story and fully live a satisfying life is possible no matter how dark the starting place feels. Addiction is 100% treatable. With life there is always opportunity.

"I see things differently." I see you fully able to achieve your goals. I see you as one who likely needs a non-judgmental place to talk about things: your future goals, how drug/alcohol use, etc fits w/that future, & how you see yourself getting there: abstinence, sober curious. moderation. I'm a collaborator, one who's committed to listening deeply & providing a space to talk about anything, for individuals/families/all. I am not a therapist; my main focus is on today & tomorrow though we may visit the past. And I follow the science of change & addiction ; it shows there's no one way to recover/change & that's great news!
