Healing from trauma, reclaiming power, growing from struggle and learning to work WITH emotions rather than AGAINST them are the goals I strive to support my clients in achieving. I want to help my clients move beyond simply not feeling so depressed, anxious, angry or manic. I want to help them transcend their pain, feel like they are fulfilling their purpose in life, are able to truly love themselves and are cultivating relationships that feed their soul. Narrative Therapy teaches my clients to transform the meaning of what they have been through and techniques from Existential Therapy help clients create or discover their purpose.

Relationships are everything––our relationship to ourselves, our relationship to others and to the world around us. We have an immense capacity to heal in relationship and in the right conditions we can grow and thrive. The famed psychologist Carl Jung wrote that we, “walk in shoes too small," meaning we limit our own potential, whether we are conscious of it or not. In that sense, the work of therapy is to broaden ourselves and fully embody the potential that awaits each of us. We aim to skillfully and artfully help you through whatever it is that brings you here to both surrender and grow into a more full and satisfying life.

I am profoundly aware of the tremendous courage it takes to seek help. Particularly, when you are coming from a life you have often been forced to endure heavily weighed upon by anxiety, trauma, depression, and addiction. This deeply rooted awareness of this pain is why I first entered the field of psychology and has successfully guided my work in assisting my clients to overcome their many barriers and difficulties. My approach offers the skills and self-awareness needed to establish the capacity towards supporting you to reach the kind of life you imagined possible.

You want to experience your authentic nature, to show up fully in relationship with yourself and others, and to be loved and accepted for who you really are. Does this sound familiar? We all have a longing for wholeness, to integrate all parts of ourselves, and to experience peace and belonging. Yet we often live under the shadow of conditioning that we learned in our families and in society that tells us we have to be a certain way to be accepted. It is the privilege of a lifetime to be who you truly are and to first love and accept yourself. It takes courage and commitment to face your inner conflicts and be willing to change.

In dealing with stressors, life events, challenging relationships, and traumatic experiences we develop patterns to keep ourselves safe and sane; which often also limits us. The challenge is unlearning these narratives and trusting our innate wisdom. When we feel safe, secure and accepted for who we are we can begin the process of shedding what doesn’t work for us, while exploring our untapped potential. I believe you are the master of your story; and I hope to create a safe space where we can gain insight about your inner battles, develop skills to enhance holistic development, and realize the potential of your authentic self.

The story of our growth is often a story of change — in the layered identities we inhabit, the relationships that anchor us, and the responsibilities we are called to step into. Moving through life changes like separating from a partner, shifting careers, becoming a parent, or losing a loved one can make us feel unmoored and overwhelmed, stranded someplace between who we once were and who we are becoming. I work with my clients to explore the unique complexities, challenges, and opportunities for empowerment that lay inside these vulnerable, vital periods of transition.

Therapy is a place for building confidence, motivation and belonging. In order to help you, we must engage the amazing complexity of you at the multiple levels of your life. No level is privileged. A person is always more than their thoughts and behaviors. A person is always more than their history. Not only do I work to “change” thoughts and behaviors, I work with the whole person-in-their-experiential-context. A good therapist doesn’t just “do therapy”. They sense and do justice to the person in their context. I am a radically different therapist with each person I see. This is because I believe that you are the expert on you.

I specialize in facilitating this work: to empower you to know your own heart and mind and make decisions that honor who you are. Let’s awaken the truest you.

Early relationships shape the way the mind and brain develop from our young years into our adult lives. Our connections with caregivers induce neural circuit firings that persist throughout our lives, shaping how we think, feel, remember, and behave. When we are lucky enough to have secure attachment experiences in which we feel seen, safe, soothed, and secure—the “four S’s of attachment” that serve as the foundation for a healthy mind—these relational experiences stimulate the neuronal activation and growth of the integrative fibers of the brain.

Anxiety, depression, transitions, and other difficult situations are all a normal part of experience, but as life would have it, they don't always show up at the most convent of times. You are likely reading this because it is one of those times. The question now is what do you do about it? It may just go away or it may not. Consulting with and then finding the right therapist is a good place to start.

You can indeed change your feelings and behaviors, even if that change has seemed unachievable in the past. Perhaps you've already tried to address your concerns on your own. Maybe progress was more difficult than you thought or it proved to be short-lived. If you're ready for change, my goal is to help you move forward toward the life you want to live. I specialize in optimizing peer, romantic, and family relationships; reducing or eliminating substance use and addictive behaviors; and breaking unhelpful patterns around sex, dating, and technology. I welcome and respect all relationship styles and addiction goals.
