My approach is understanding and compassionate by utilizing EMDR, Somatic Experiencing, Emotionally Focused Therapy, Internal Family Systems , and DBT for great results.
Life doesn't always go as planned and sometimes it can be a real struggle. If you are experiencing anxiety / depression / overwhelm and unsure where to turn ... I can help! As human beings we naturally go through a wide range of emotions but that doesn't mean we have to suffer... we all have the power of change within us! I can help you believe in yourself, embrace confidence and self-assertion to take back your life. In my practice, I help people struggling with anxiety, depression, trauma, loss, food/body issues, dissociation, codependency, and relationship problems.

I enjoy working with individuals from a family systems perspective - helping clients to understand their presenting concerns within the context of their environment. I believe that we are all a part of a system and, in order to experience real change, one must understand our own role in how the system operates. I tend to be eclectic in my approach, but most often utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy and Mindfulness approaches.

I integrate mindfulness into my therapy practice through utilizing Internal Family Systems , Somatic Experiencing, compassion-focused, CBT, and DBT therapy approaches.
My services include regular talk therapy as well as ketamine-assisted psychotherapy where I provide prep and integration sessions along with the experiential ketamine sessions. Typical issues that I work with are anxiety, depression, addiction, life transitions, & relational issues. The goals tend to be how to find deeper connection with self & others, how to relate to yourself better, how to better cope with anxiety, how to navigate a life transition, among other goals. They want a better understanding of themselves & to improve their habits and well-being. I provide a compassionate and nonjudgmental space for us to dive deep.

I utilize Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, Internal Family Systems Therapy, and EMDR.
I work primarily with individuals who struggle to feel satisfied in their relationships with others as well as in their relationships to themselves, to their core values and aspirations. I find that relationships, to both ourselves and to others, lie at the root of our psychological distress. If our relationships are strained or absent, then we can easily begin to feel anxious and depressed and fall prey to addictive and compulsive behavior. I work best with clients who want to get a bit below the surface and explore other ways of relating.

As a therapist, I use a holistic approach, incorporating mindfulness, Internal Family Systems , psychotherapy, spirituality and other helpful modalities.
I specialize in depression, grief, and finding meaning in our chaotic, fragmented and often superficial world. Depression is a multi-layered, frequently misunderstood state we may find ourselves in. Grief can hide in many areas of life and is sometimes a roller-coaster that has you questioning your sanity. Relationships can be challenging. Life is sometimes painful and unclear. We may find ourselves repeating unhealthy cycles over and over and not know how to change that. But our brain is malleable and together we can learn new ways to build healthy and satisfying patterns so you can enjoy your life!

To start, I am an Internal Family Systems Therapist and most clients I see are looking for IFS therapy. Now, Are you at a place in your life where you just want more? Maybe your marriage is not necessarily "bad" but a part of you feels like you are missing out on what you know it could be. Maybe a part of you is critical of yourself and is keeping you from reaching your dreams. I believe that better understanding and getting to know your own internal world helps you see the world differently. It is from that centered place that you can better get to know your compassionate, curious, and confident self. Life can be so much more!

I use evidence based approaches (EMDR, CBT, DBT, IFS and others) that can give you powerful tools to train your brain against anxiety, depression, emotional distress, anger issues, and other struggles.
Are you wanting to feel differently or have something change in your life but dont know how to get there? Sometimes we just need help generating the internal and external life we crave. I believe that early relationships in our life affect the way we think, feel, and behave towards the people we care about. It even changes the way our brains develop and personalities express themselves! I use a variety of interventions to support you in uncovering patterns that are causing problems, heal, and learn new ways of being. You have many strengths just waiting to be used. It would be an honor to walk alongside you.

With my formal training in IFS and EMDR, and the safe environment I create, my clients move through their unhealed emotional wounds to a place of healing so they don't need old protective behaviors any more.
Do you feel stuck in a sense that you are not good enough? Imagine no longer feeling patterns that hurt, or no longer being paralyzed by beliefs that block you from being the person you want to be. My goal is to walk alongside you helping you identify what's holding you back from the life you want, and to gently but profoundly help you heal those wounds so you can grow. I love working with people to reprocess old traumatic life experiences that get in the way, when they really just want to be healthy.

I am currently accepting new patients. Is your teen or pre-teen suffering from depression or anxiety? Are they struggling in school or with their peer group? Through the use of art, crafts and play therapy techniques, your child can learn new ways of coping. Children and teens don't always have the ability, or the words, to share how they are really feeling. Instead it comes out in their behaviors, which often times ends up creating conflict, disharmony and upset. It doesn't have to be this way. Your child and your family can enjoy being together. It is possible to see your child or teen be their best self!

So many of us find ourselves trapped, caught in unhealthy cycles and relationship patterns, hopeless but wanting change. I want to come alongside you, helping you find insight into those patterns and discover the healing truths about yourself. This moment of insight opens up the possibility of change, allowing you to live your best self in all relationships. Psychotherapy is important to me because it works! I have witnessed psychotherapy bring about the transforming journey from a place of hopelessness to place of freedom in my own life and in the lives of my clients.

Have you tried traditional talk therapy and felt like something was missing? Did it seem like you were talking in circles, or reached a plateau? Did it feel too rigid or surface level? Many clients come to me after having done traditional talk therapy and now they want to go deeper. So many issues like codependency, addiction, and persistent anxiety and depression are rooted in subconscious beliefs and patterns rooted in childhood pain. My work is unique because we address your subconscious mind and nervous system, in addition to cognitive process, to help you heal the past in order to move forward.

Are you feeling tired of the patterns and old stories that impact the development of your vitality and the best version of your life? Does your body seem to mirror the internal negative thought patterns that seem to block you creating the life you want to live? Do you feel like there are moments that you cannot imagine living in the internal Wasteland another moment? I am inspired and honored to work with adults who are motivated to heal and release the negative internal stories, especially from trauma, that have dictated their behavior in order to create their own life worth living.

There is no way around the fact that life throws ongoing curve balls, and sometimes those balls feel enormously overwhelming. I see therapy as a means to help people move through their suffering and finds better ways to experience their life and develop aspects of their brain that equip them to feel more joy, inner comfort, inner integration and meaning. I work empathically to build awareness of repetitive patterns, gain relief from emotional pain and help build deeper connections to oneself and others. My careful use of attunement and connecting one's core self to younger "parts" of the mind creates deep change.
