After becoming a mother myself, I realized the need in the community for more support for new moms, and even new fathers. There is a great deal of stigma about getting help during this time. Perhaps you had a difficult pregnancy or delivery. Or, your experience of having a baby brings sadness, irritability, or loneliness. Becoming a mother also comes with an incredible identity shift! You are not failing, you are not alone, you are doing your best, and I am here to help you in your process.

One of the most difficult things you will face is the loss of a loved one. I will work with you to find healing in grief. Recognizing grief extends beyond the loss of a loved one, we together will process and grieve losses associated with unresolved trauma, chronic mental or physical diagnoses, relationship difficulties, career transitions, and advancing age. I will help you identify personal strengths and coping skills that promote stabilization after loss. I strive to help you find new meaning out of despair and hope for the future. I provide individual and group therapy to adolescents, teens, adults, couples and families.

Specialize in anxiety and depression. I see myself as someone joining my clients on a journey where they discover who they are and the "why?" behind their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. We will also explore unconscious blocks that get in the way of living a fuller life. These understandings are what serve as the first big step toward healing and building resilience. I also believe that a large part of therapy is the therapeutic relationship. We will explore the patterns that show up in the therapy room and how they represent patterns in other relationships. I do this by being honest, empathetic and curious.

I come to you on your own terms, wherever you feel most comfortable: your living room, a coffee shop, a local park. How about a walk & talk therapy session, instead of lying down on a couch? Sure thing. Coffee and counseling? I can do that. I use an effective combination of cognitive behavioral techniques and mindfulness practices to help kids and families develop lifelong coping skills. My approach lends itself well to tackling tough issues, such as anxiety and depression, and turning struggle into success.

The challenges that we inevitably face in our lives, while frustrating and overwhelming, provide us with opportunities to gain insight into patterns that at one time helped us and are now contributing to our distress. I believe that these patterns not only impact the decisions we make in various avenues of life, but our perspective of the things that are happening to us and around us. Growth starts from developing a deeper awareness of these patterns.

I practice from both a relational and an attachment based framework. It’s widely known that the main driver of successful outcome in psychotherapy is the quality of the relationship between the patient and the clinician. It is also acknowledged that the majority of mental health issues are either caused, maintained, or intensified by unhealthy relationships. For these reasons, I place a great deal of emphasis upon our relationship as a foundation for implementing any clinical interventions.
