Do you question your purpose in life? Are you still looking for your "passion?" Do you want a deeper connection with others? Do you sometimes feel that there must be more to life than working and buying things? I am passionate about helping you answer these questions. My approach to mental health is collaborative and includes a strong belief that people strive towards wellness and have within them the capacity to heal and grow. I see individuals, couples, and families age 15 and up. I treat couples, sex/infidelity, substance use/abuse, mood disorders, grief and loss, life struggles.
I work with individuals, teens and provide family therapy. My specialities include treating depression, suicidal ideation, anxiety, parent/teen conflict, mother-daughter relational dynamics, mood disorders, trauma, sexual identity, bi-racial dynamics, body positivity and sex workers. In therapy, I integrate whole wellness and health and build upon your strengths. I work towards inspiring creativity within yourself as I believe everyone is the author of their own lives.
Hello there! Something I know for sure is life can be wonderful and life can be difficult. By taking care of our mental health, we are better able to mange the ups, downs and turns in life and improve our functioning and life satisfaction. While there are a variety of approaches and interventions used in therapy, clients have shared what they appreciate most about working with me is my "realness" and genuineness; relatability (we are all cultural beings with emotions, thoughts and experiences); knowledge and experience; empathic directness; balance of support and challenge; calming presence; and humor (as appropriate of course!).
Isolation is hard. Being a Teen is hard. School pressure to perform well is high. Liking your body often seems impossible. Socializing has challenges. Past bullying can be traumatic. Do you want to learn knew coping skills? Do you need to heal from past events that are painful? Do you want to reduce your stress? Parenting a teen is hard, there is no manual and not as much parent contact as in elementary school. Getting enough self care as a parent can seem impossible but it is necessary, especially in the time of the COVID crisis. Telehealth is available!
I work with people who learn differently or are highly sensitive and/or highly intelligent who struggle with anxiety and depression. Some of my younger clients need help with learning and navigating social environments. Some of my clients are parents who need emotional support and coaching for parenting their gifted or twice-exceptional child. I help my clients increase their understanding of who they are as unique and whole individuals, offer strategies for enhancing emotional intelligence, and help my clients gain competency in regulating their emotions and reducing harmful behaviors.
Are you feeling alone, unheard, or stuck? Are you experiencing anxiety, fatigue, and excessive worrying that impact your relationships and career? I’m glad you’re taking the time to notice these changes and to invest in yourself to become a better version of yourself. In sessions, I utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to help identify ways to incorporate positive changes for your negative thought patterns. Thus, you will learn to become better equipped in maintaining your personal or professional goals. I am committed to helping my clients decrease anxiety and manage healthy relationships.
Whether it’s your first or fifteenth time seeking a therapist- congrats on making it this far. Therapy is a beautiful and worthwhile process that takes a lot of guts and humility. Just by getting here, you’ve already accomplished a lot! I became a therapist because I love the process of therapy, and benefited from it so much as a client. It’s invigorating to explore our inner lives within a trusting relationship and experience the transformation that happens when we do so. Therapy can help restore our ability to listen to the messages coming from within and respond with compassion. Often, our renewed ability to pay curious attention

I can help you let go of past HURTS and develop tools to find RELIEF.
I believe we’re all doing the best we can with the tools and experiences life has given us. Are you feeling frustrated or stuck? Does it feel like you’re “less than” others? Are you constantly feeling guilty? Is anxiety taking over your life, preventing you from being able to relax? I'm here to help you find relief. Many of us haven’t had the opportunity or support to develop the confidence or skills to tackle life's issues. Maybe we've had experiences that left deep, invisible scars & suffered alone. You are not alone!
You wake up each morning unsatisfied. You are aware that you are not living up to your full potential while anxiety, depression, trauma or stress are preventing you from realizing your true nature. Your relationships might feel inauthentic or limited and you are craving a deeper connection to yourself, others and life. You are thirsty for meaning, purpose, joy and peace and have noticed that your own thoughts and emotions are interfering with your experience. You are ready to learn how to forgive and love yourself and others while drinking in this life one moment at a time.
Feeling anxious, overwhelmed, and having panic attacks? Do you have unresolved trauma that needs your attention but don’t know where to start? Are you hard on yourself & exhausted from living up to your own high standards? Have a history of toxic relationships & tired of ending up in the same hurtful ruts? Do you have a teen struggling with anxiety? Do you prioritize others' needs over your own? Grow up stuffing your feelings & have no idea how to honor & manage them in a healthy way? In need of grief support? If you can relate to any of these questions, you have come to the right place.
I am an experienced and seasoned clinician. I help people overcome difficult life changes and transitions so that they can regain their balance, feel better, and live fully once again. We may not always be able to make painful situations go away. But, we can learn productive and meaningful ways to manage them. I strive to enable my clients to develop skills that will serve them well and that will enable them to manage life’s challenges, beyond the therapy room.
I utilize a client centered approach in working with adolescents and adults who struggle with anxiety, depression, grief, relationship issues, and life transitions. In a safe, supportive, and non judgemental space we can explore the negative patterns in your life, work through any barriers, and move towards healing, growth, and change.
I believe therapy can provide a safe space for creating a more fulfilled life. There are times where we may experience traumas, feel stuck and emotionally disconnected, and have difficulty coping. My approach to therapy includes a humanistic centered style, where we establish a collaborative and trusting relationship to allow for vulnerability and personal growth to occur. I am committed to providing compassionate and empathetic care to support you in your journey towards self-discovery, where we can explore and identify your strengths, build confidence, and self- esteem.
Are you struggling with anxiety and trauma and turning towards unhealthy coping mechanisms in an attempt to manage your emotions? Now is a trying time for almost everyone, and if you have a trauma background what's coming up in the current environment may be reminiscent of the stress, isolation, and fear induced by early childhood experiences. You don't have to handle this alone, and with clinically tested techniques to regulate the mind and body, it's possible to shift from a place of disempowerment to strength.
At its foundation, I believe therapy is the exploration of relationships. Whether the focus is the relationship to yourself or your relationship to others - my approach involves fostering a safe space where clients an explore, grow, and heal. I practice therapy that is relationship-focused, client-centered, and trauma-informed.

Childhood trauma can cripple us, it creates overpowering ‘intense’ emotions such as anxiety, depression, and anger when left unattended which begins to create physical symptoms to defend our bodies from the internal wounds. Has there ever been a time in your life where you have experienced this reaction? Are you experiencing these feelings based on current or past trauma from childhood, early teens, adolescence, adulthood, or as a senior? I aim to utilize a variety of actionable techniques to help reduce trauma related symptoms and make lasting changes in life.
