Few, if any, of us grow up in an environment that perfectly fits our needs. As we grow, we adapt to our surroundings in ways that may run counter to our vitality, health, and happiness. By exploring and understanding the underlying emotional and psychological patterns that shape our lives, we are able to develop choice in whether to engage in patterns and habits that no longer serve us. As a psychotherapist, I provide a curious, and compassionate presence, lending my heart and mind to this process of self-exploration and self-understanding.

You're considering therapy. It is a complex, courageous and oftentimes difficult decision, but sometimes we just know that it's time to try something new. I believe that therapy helps individuals and families address challenges that keep us from our full potential. Whether you are suffering from anxiety or depression, relationship issues or isolation, financial preoccupations or a desire for a new career, you know it is time to work to make things better. I am a psychologist providing flexible, relational therapy to help you to address a range of issues. My style is warm, compassionate, and down to earth.

I enjoy working with children and adults to help them find grounded ways of being with and moving through the struggles they face. I believe that strong relationships, with the self, the body, and with others, are central to a healthy lifestyle. Painful life experiences, transitions, trauma, anxiety, and depression are opportunities for growth, and helping people move through these challenges is incredibly rewarding. I love working with people of diverse sociocultural backgrounds and exploring how culture shapes experience. A deep understanding of development allows me to connect with people of all ages and help them move through difficult stages.

The intimate relationship that develops in therapy requires being willing to be deeply known. Crisis, uncertainty, unwanted patterns, doubt, self-criticism & anxiety are unsettling. Addressing internal conflict is a private & individual process but that does not mean it must be done alone. Therapy is an opportunity to understand yourself better. It is a place to heal from the wounds of being “othered” due to personal issue or identity (race, sexuality, gender, immigration status, ethnicity, class, being donor conceived, disability, etc). Therapy offers an opportunity to confront fears & challenges in being understood.

Therapy offers a profound opportunity for growth and change. I'll be curious about your experience, and we'll pay attention to what feels most important to you as we talk together about your thoughts and feelings. Through this process you'll gain a deeper understanding of yourself. You'll also come to better know your own strengths and resiliency. I am warm, thoughtful, and engaging in my approach and believe that a safe and supportive therapy relationship is essential in easing feelings of discomfort and vulnerability that normally accompany change.

Therapy is a deeply personal experience and there are as many reasons to seek therapy as there are people who seek it. Perhaps you are struggling with anxiety, depression, grief, or shame. You may have suffered traumas or losses and are wondering how these shape your thoughts, feelings and relationships. Maybe you simply have a sense that aspects of your life are not coming together in the ways you desire. Therapy is a space to explore these curiosities, to develop insight into your self, and, ultimately, to find greater fulfillment in your work, relationships, and play.

Parenting can be a deeply conflictual experience. Sometimes we agree with Bette Davis who said "If you have never been hated by your child, you have never been a parent." Other times we identify with Anne Lamott's notion that "There really are places in the heart you don't even know exist until you love a child." The seemingly unpredictable alternation of positive and negative feelings that come with raising a family can be painful and bewildering, and our self-esteem as parents suffers most when it becomes difficult to access the good in our closest relationships.

Sometimes life is over the top intense. Sometimes that's an understatement. If you've been in therapy before without lasting results and live in CA or CO, my approach may be particularly helpful for you. Both a social worker and psychologist, I use non-pathologizing models of the human psyche to address trauma, depression, gender identity, anxiety and conflict. I'm skillful at helping people improve relationships, navigate loss and life transition, change old patterns, and turn painful experiences into sources of meaningful discovery. Working with a clinically astute, sincere therapist can be life-changing.

Therapy with me involves working with the body as much as the mind. This can be challenging for some, but leads to long-term resolution and healing in a more complete, organic nature. Through Somatic Experiencing (SE), I have been trained to work with various forms of trauma (developmental, event specific, chronic/long-term) and the way in which our survival energy becomes trapped in our bodies. We embody our lived experience.

My practice focus includes treating children, teens, and families as well as adult individuals facing complicated emotional and behavioral conditions. How I work depends upon the circumstances bringing you to a psychotherapist as different problems and situations need different approaches. Every therapy is unique even if there are preferred methods and practices for treating anxiety, depression, and others. Each treatment is foremost a relationship. This often takes time to build, which may be a challenge when limited by schedules, insurance benefits, or circumstances. My goal is that psychotherapy is effective in addressing change in thinking and behavior, and that you find it helpful.

The world needs helpers, just like you. But when your life gets stressful and overwhelming, where do you turn? You nurture others. You put your heart into your relationships and your work, but sometimes it starts to feel like it's too much. Like you're exhausted and unable to take some time for yourself.

All of us grapple at times with thoughts and feelings that are too much to bear alone and that generate suffering in body and mind. Creating an emotionally safe yet challenging therapeutic space, one that respects your timing, lies at the heart of my approach. I offer both short term treatment and long term intensive treatment for couples and individuals, depending on your needs and circumstances. Many clients find that their symptoms diminish, their suffering decreases, and their development proceeds as a result of talking with someone who listens deeply and is emotionally available.

PLEASE NOTE: MY PRACTICE IS CURRENTLY FULL. Anxiety and depression often signal that something important is going on . . . just beneath the surface. Making sense of this pain, how it's guided you in the past, and its current role in perceiving the world, your place in it, and how to get what you truly desire is at the core of our work. Meeting weekly, or more frequently, therapy provides an environment to help reflect,understand, and grow. My experience and interest encompasses formal diagnoses (abuse history, serious mental illnesses, and trauma) or that less defined, more pervasive sense that something is just a little off.
