Working with individual adults and couples, I have 35 years experience supporting men and women who want to heal and grow. Stress, depression and anxiety often stem from relationship and workplace concerns. My couples counseling focuses on communication skills. To help heal childhood pain, I use varied modalities, including trauma work, EMDR , Adult Children (ACA) work, and parent/adult child conversations . Another specialty area is adults with addictions, family members with addicted loved ones, and codependency. I support the changes that come with each decade of life, along with retirement , aging and end-of-life issues.

I provide therapy to working professionals in high stress jobs, single men and women who want to overcome what is getting in the way of being in thriving relationships, and teens with depression or anxiety to journey back to yourself in order to find answers inside you to resolve whatever challenges life brings.
You may experience glimpses of what it feels like to be ok with your life and, dare I say, happy, but most of the time you feel stressed, anxious or overwhelmed. You work really hard, yet wonder what it is all worth. You feel mostly disconnected from others and aren't sure how to find your way in relationships. While you have some people in your life you care about, you wonder if those relationships could be deeper and more satisfying. You want to live your best life, but don't know what steps to take. You are tired of being single, but in some ways, you have lost hope there is someone out there for you.

Being human can be hard, especially right now. With consistent support, there can be a little more ease. When you work with me, you get a woman with a big heart, a keen mind, and a clarity of purpose. It is my mission to hold space for you to feel safe to sit with big emotions, and to express whatever is in you that needs to be let out. There is a way to a more joyful life, and I will support you in the process. I help you get in touch with your inner truths and pains. I hold space for you to feel, to speak, and to move through mental and emotional blocks holding you back from being your full, true self.

I enjoy working with people who hold multicultural and marginalized identities, including women and BIPOC.
Navigating life's circumstances and challenges can take up a lot of space in our lives. Maybe you are looking for more spaciousness, more time for yourself, or an extra ear to listen to and fully "get" you. Or perhaps anxiety or depression has become a constant presence, and you desire a change and want more connection. Sharing our experiences with others provides an opportunity to feel understood. In a therapeutic relationship, we explore patterns and coping strategies to better form a picture of how we operate in the world. It can help us identify what is and isn't working towards getting your needs met more fully.

My specialization is in working with women and men who are trying to conceive, who are expecting and new parents on the transition to parenthood, including women struggling with Perinatal Mood Disorders (Prenatal and Postpartum Depression and/or Anxiety and/or OCD).
In my work with individual adults, new parents and couples who are struggling with all sorts of life-stressors, I have found the most effective approach to be one that is warm, collaborative and process-oriented; where the client(s) feels seen, heard and understood. Studies show that the one of most important ingredients in therapy is the relationship between therapist and client. I agree with this wholeheartedly and work from that perspective. Attachment, Family-Systems, Relational and Psychodynamic theories are all woven together to inform my work, as well.

As a Multiracial, Black, Queer, Disabled Woman , I hold a strong relational and cultural lens in my practice. I view behaviors and trauma through the foundation of who you are; in relationship to one's self and others. Identity and culture impact how we walk through the world, and how we heal through it. I also hold a strong lens for tapping into your inner child, healing childhood wounds and pains. What unmet childhood need is blocking your healing? Let's explore, and reclaim your sense of safety and joy together.

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 have worked extensively with women with cancer, and people going through divorce, retirement, death of a partner, and most of life's various provocations which cause pain to the soul, all "traumas" in their own right.
I consider it a privilege to work with you to explore aspects of your life experience which have diminished your satisfaction with life or otherwise left you feeling lost or alone. Challenges around loss, aging, illness, trauma or relationships can feel too frightening to tackle alone. As a seasoned and compassionate psychotherapist, I can help you bear and work with what may feel unbearable. Together, we will create a protected space that fosters the trust, aliveness and self-expression that are essential to growth and success in love and work, where you can ultimately reclaim your life and joie-de-vivre.

I support and stand alongside all who are survivors of emotional, sexual and/or physical violence and strive to create space for increased self love and resilience. I look forward to meeting you and discovering how we can address patterns that no longer serve you as we build awareness and skills to support you in gaining the life you want to live.

I utilize Cognitive Behavioral to support women , men and couples in processing trauma and creating the life they desire.
To live in America in 2022 is to experience some sort of emotional stress and overwhelm. In the age of information, we are exposed to trauma on a daily basis. The messaging that the world gives us is "do more" and "work harder". We rarely are encouraged to prioritize ourselves, create and enforce healthy boundaries and make time for the things in our lives that bring us peace. If you've been "grinding" and you are now looking up and asking yourself "what is this all for if I'm not enjoying my life", then you are in the right place. I can support you in doing the work it takes to achieve your peace!
