Having served on the faculty and administration of several top notch graduate degree programs in psychology over the last 15 years, I have extensive training and experience in using a family systems , strengths-based, attachment-oriented approach to create positive change for Individuals, Couples, Families and Children of all ages.
When we find ourselves struggling with the kind of emotional pain that our usual strategies and supports can't relieve, good therapy is a lifeline. Like massage for physical injuries, psychotherapy effectively relieves chronic emotional pain, clears out unwanted emotional scar tissue, and creates flexibility, strength and new possibilities for positive motion in our lives. Whether you are worried about your own mental health, or the distress of someone you love, or are simply curious about how therapy might help, call/email me to schedule an initial conversation to talk about what kind of treatment is best for you.

My work combines Client-Centered Therapy, Internal Family Systems , and Emotionally- Focused Therapy.
With mindfulness and compassion, I help my clients transform their limiting beliefs, access their strengths, and move toward a greater sense of wholeness and ease. Couples describe my work as insight-oriented and free from blame or guilt. Colleagues and clients have called my style authentic, direct, and compassionate. I always try to provide warmth and a quick sense of humor. I believe remembering the past is helpful to the extent it helps heal, and so while we’ll be attentive to the past, our focus will be on how its legacy is impacting your life now. Our work will be relieving of past pains and also bring more calm and joy.

I work with adults and teens to provide solutions for generalized anxiety and stress; social anxiety; panic attacks; borderline personality disorder (BPD); depression or low self esteem; child and family conflict; school issues; and non-binary and transgender affirming therapy by using CBT, DBT, emotionally-focused, and family systems therapy approaches.
Life presents many challenges that may feel overwhelming. And now, you or your teen may be experiencing anxiety, sadness, and uncertainty. Together we can work through these distressing moments, allowing you to feel safe, supported, and heard with compassion. Wouldn't it be nice to just breathe easy and feel relaxed? Anxiety & stress, depression, or borderline personality disorder (BPD) can be challenging in the best of times, but the last few years have compounded these difficulties. Plus, anxiety and depression lie. They tell you that you cannot engage productively in life. I provide therapy solutions to overcome this deception.

I specialize in IFS , DBT, and CBT to help my clients to identify their internal parts and help these parts to discover healthier skills for coping.
Life can feel impossible to avoid struggling and we often don't feel we have the skills to cope successfully through. Unfortunately, sometimes we don't have all the resources we need for a given situation. Parts of us take on desperate roles trying to help us to survive. This might look like anxiety, depression, PTSD, addiction, and relationship/family issues. I aim to help you process unresolved issues and feelings and find solutions.

We explore and map how you function using tools from EMDR, Somatic Experiencing, Internal Family Systems , spirituality and more.
Our pursuit of a good life can be deeply affected by the current world situations. We may be struggling not only in our personal lives but also by difficult worldly events such as climate change, the economy, retirement, health care and many more. When the world doesn't feel safe, it's more difficult to tolerate the emotions, sensations, and thoughts arising inside of us, making us turn toward old coping mechanisms This will not heal us. We need to build the confidence to be with and understand our inner experiences no matter what! This is our pathway to truly heal and live a more peaceful and meaningful life in the world.

I use strength based approaches like: EMDR, Somatic therapy (Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, a mindfulness based talk therapy), and trauma informed Internal Family Systems .
When it's an uphill battle to manage anxiety, low self-worth or impulsive self-sabotaging habits, it’s probably time to get some help. Life doesn't need to feel so hard. I facilitate the wisdom and drive to heal already inside you. It's normal to feel transformation may be out of reach. But I have helped many people thrive. Impulses, emotional overwhelm and habits often get "updated." It's common to feel more ease, self-accepting and empowered to make key changes. I excel at supporting and guiding my clients along their path. Many indicate they feel refreshed, transformed and nourished. Feel free to call. I'd love to tell you more.
