I am passionate about helping people live a healthy and meaningful life by becoming the best version of themselves. I believe there is no one size fits all method to addressing your unique needs. So, I use a variety of evidence-based interventions, tailored to your strengths and needs. I work from a framework of trauma-informed lens, cognitive and behavior, attachment, and systems lens. I work with you to identify and challenge unhelpful feelings and behaviors that keep you stuck or maintain symptoms and behaviors that impact your close relationships, social life, occupational life, school life, and activities of daily living.
Finding a therapist who is the right fit for you is a huge first step in healing and moving towards your therapeutic goals. I am not a "blank slate" therapist. Convinced that connections heal, my style is warm, relational, client-centered, strengths-based and strongly influenced by Buddhist Psychology. I meet my clients where they currently are and support them in healing and moving towards their goals. Please be advised that when sharing personal information through calls and emails via Psychology Today they will first be seen and directed by my assistant to myself or colleagues at my group practice of Wounded Healers Inc.

Do you struggle with feeling not good enough? Does it seem like everyone else has it together when it comes to "life stuff" like work and relationships but you? Are you utterly exhausted dealing with these emotions that you can't even pinpoint, let alone understand? What you may need is time set aside SOLELY for you in a safe and judgment-free space to process these challenging experiences and problem-solve next steps. My belief is that mental health is about tapping into your resiliency as an empowered human being and believing in your ability to create the change you want to see in your life.
There’s a lot going on in the world and sometimes it’s hard to emotionally, mentally, and physically show up. You might be stressed out, anxious, depressed, or just overall exhausted. It could be because of friends, family, work, or overall life that makes you feel like you’re stuck. It is impacting your confidence, your self-esteem, and you might not know where it is coming from or what to do. It could be due to some past experiences that you’ve never fully addressed. Let’s talk, I’m here to help.
You're tired of struggling to keep it all together. You're afraid of letting down everyone around you. Your friends and family think that success comes easy to you because you don't struggle like they do. But deep down inside you feel like you're failing. Somehow you’ve been coping with difficulty focusing and procrastination that has been brought on by difficult childhood experiences. But now you've gotten to a point in your life where it's too hard to go on this way. You have SO many amazing ideas, but it's SO difficult for you to execute them the way you've imagined. Getting started can be overwhelming. That's where I come in.

Are you entering a new stage of life, or thinking of making a major change in your life? Are you unclear about the choices available to you? Are you feeling anxious and stressed out about the changes?

Please note: Currently only doing telehealth. "The brave man (or person) is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear." (Nelson Mandela) Journeying through life is not supposed to be a solitary endeavor. I have found that in times of joy and pain, it is better to have it shared with others. I value the courage that it takes to be willing to open up and explore inwardly and relationally. I provide a safe and validating environment for those who want to personally grow, explore relationship dynamics, or seek support with mental health issues.
We all embark on the journey of life at the same starting point. We all travel down the road before us; trying to carve out a path that will lead us to the kind of life that will bring us joy, peace, and happiness. However, there are times when the path leads us off the course of happiness and fulfillment, and into some dark corners where we become stuck.

Often times we are motivated to start therapy when we encounter a variety of perceived "negative" symptoms (sadness, loneliness, worry, fear, etc). But, what if these symptoms are simply signs that we are experiencing an imbalance in our lives? Therapy is a genuine, honest conversation about the human experience where I can help you find your balance and power. It is a safe space where you can just be you, without judgement and without worrying about the person on the receiving end.

We all struggle with difficulties from time to time. Unresolved issues can cause us to act and react in ways that lead to unhappiness in our lives and our relationships. Exploring these issues and working through them leads to breakthroughs, improved relationships and a greater sense of well-being. I provide a safe, empathic sharing space for clients to share these difficulties and struggles.
