I also work with members of the BDSM, kink , and poly communities and create a safe space for the development of new paradigms and beliefs.
Throughout our lives, we all have experienced feelings of depression, anxiety, and anger. These emotions leave you feeling insecure, shameful, lonely, unworthy and stuck in unhealthy patterns of behavior. Trauma can have negative emotional and physical effects and can lead to family/relationship issues. I specialize in solution-focused brief therapy, motivational interviewing, mindfulness and CBT. These approaches allow me to work with the client to decrease symptoms of anxiety and depression and other health/behavioral issues.

I specialize in adult ADD/ADHD management, sex therapy, and LGBTQ+ affirmative, kink /poly affirmative care for individuals and couples.
I work with clients to find a new perspective on life. Growing up, we are told/hear things about what we “should” do or how we “should” feel. Should statements can cause clients to struggle with anxiety, depression, issues with connections with themselves or others, and much more. I view clients as the expert in their life and work with them to find their authentic selves by working on compassion, acceptance, and empowerment. Our world has changed, and societal expectations are changing, this gives us all the opportunity to discover our true priorities. How we show up for ourselves, friends, family, relationships, and our careers.

Do you desire a meaningful relationship with yourself and others? Are life challenges impacting your quality of life? If so, you are not alone and therapy can provide you with the guidance and support needed to move toward mental, physical, and emotional balance for a healthier more successful life. I believe creating a strong therapeutic relationship is of paramount importance in the process of change and a key ingredient towards your progress in therapy. While being supportive, I’ll also challenge you to acknowledge and confront unhelpful patterns of thinking and behaviors that are interfering with your personal goals.

Sometimes the world just feels like too much--too much work, too much stress, too much pain, too much numbness. There can be so much in your day to day that it's hard to figure out where to start, let alone where to go. Therapy can be a wonderful space to figure out what’s not working, and give you the tools you need to make changes to attain the life that you really want, and be the person that you really want to be.

I'm passionate about helping people who want to make changes in their lives and who want to fulfill their potential, but who don't know where or how to start. I have decades-long experience providing support to people from all walks of life with all types of issues--with a focus on individuals struggling with addictive behaviors, unresolved traumas, and eating disorders. My special interest is working with adults who want to change their alcohol/drug use and with those who struggle with their relationship with food--such as tending to binge eat, to use food as a way to self-soothe or as a punishment or reward. Message/call today!

Having a healthy relationship with yourself and others is not always easy. There are times when it can be challenging to embody the positive support you need, rather than that inner critic that is not always helpful. I believe that improving your sense of self-worth and self-esteem through self-acceptance, compassion and appropriate boundaries, with yourself and others, is necessary to maintaining healthy relationships and imperative when working through life stressors that impact your quality of life.

My clients are usually hard workers, and are very self critical. They expect so much out of themselves, and don't feel like they are ever enough. People pleasers that are frustrated they can't please everyone, are often tired and frustrated with where life is going compared to where they wish it was. They often have relationships that could be better, whether starting, maintaining, or ending. They are tired of struggling, they are ready to make a change, to be part of the solution. They want to have better control of their anxiety, emotions, anger, and also learn to be in the moment. I can help you get to where you want to be.

I get it, you've tried to change on your own, you've read all the self help books, maybe you've even seen a therapist before; something just isn't working. Now you're ready to really do the work. Maybe you still feel stuck in feelings of shame, anxiety, depression or fear. Living like this can be incredibly draining. I understand that trauma leaves you feeling vulnerable and seeking therapy isn't for the faint of heart. This is why I create a collaborative and transparent environment throughout our work together.
