I treat clients from a trauma informed perspective. If it is addiction issues (substance or process) anxiety, depression or other mood disorders, so much of what informs these maladies is developmental or relational trauma. Big T or shock trauma can bring on many underlying issues that have been dormant. I work with clients to carefully assess their history and treatment goals. I use CBT, Psychodynamics, EMDR and other trauma treatment modalities to effectively resolve the inner disturbance.

Anxiety and stress are making it hard to fully enjoy your life. You may feel stuck in the same looping thought patterns and feel constantly "on edge." You have difficulty remembering a time where your anxiety or stress wasn't bothering you. It may feel daunting to connect with friends and family. Your personal faith may struggle. It can feel really lonely and isolating to experience anxiety. It can feel like no one really understands you. You want to be able to enjoy your life again. You don't want to be stuck any more!

Life has demands which make many people feel overwhelmed, frustrated, unworthy, and/or isolated. We are often told messages on how we should handle issues, behave, look, and feel. Many times we often lose touch with who we are and stick with the negative stories of "I'm not good enough". In my practice, I bring forth a collaborative and supportive environment. I also help empower people by exploring power dynamics and shine a light on their values. I consider my work relational. I have a passion for working with diverse populations and helping individuals rewrite their life stories for a future that better reflects who they are.

When you struggle with an eating disorder, you may feel lonely and it can be hard to open up and trust another person. You likely have also received some conflicting messages about the way things “should” be, which can make it hard to trust yourself and your body. I am here to help you embrace the “messy” and to remind you that perfection simply doesn’t exist. I will be right here with you as we explore what truly makes you you – the person you really are when you let go of the expectations of others and connect with your own values.

You are not your past. So how do you break free of reactions that are rooted in adverse events from forever ago? By working in ways that respect the brain and the body's natural recovery process. Like strengthening the in-your-body type of awareness. I help people who are ready to free themselves from triggers and unwanted behavior patterns. Working with me, you'll get to know the basic mechanics of what's happening during a dysregulating experience and how to recover. You can grow more emotionally resilient in 4-12 sessions. Then we can target and resolve recurring themes that are getting in the way of living the life you want.

I treat clients with a wide variety of presenting problems that impact their relationships, functioning, and personal growth. My areas of emphasis include depression, anxiety disorders, PTSD and trauma recovery, workplace stress, life and career transitions, and creative issues/artist support (I work with many entertainment professionals). We collaborate to improve "emotional granularity": the ability to synthesize and understand new emotional experiences, to comprehend and verbalize to ourselves and others the meaning, dimensions, and consequences of our emotional experiences, and to formulate useful and compensatory responses.

What if the things you have been through are the very materials that you need to create exactly the life that you want? What if your failures could become the foundation for your success? What if the things you are ashamed of become the things that make it possible to have the kinds of relationships that you want? I can help you transform your life from what it is to what you want it to be - not by rejecting or denying what you have been through, but by honoring it.

I look forward to working with people interested in examining their past, present and future in hopes of finding greater meaning in, and understating of, all three of those aspects of their lives. Therapy can be scary, and is not without its risks, but I will provide a safe and non-judgmental container for the process. My passion is helping people interested in the examined life, and I bring much experience, both clinical and life experience, to this shared journey ahead.

Are you interested in decreasing anxious feelings and improving your mood? Does thinking about issues become confusing rather than helpful? I work with individuals to slow down rapid thoughts and gain a greater sense of control. Clients are able to become more in tune with themselves through their participation inside and outside of counseling sessions. This is a mindfulness approach that taps the inner strengths of each individual to promote healing and growth. In a safe affirming environment, clients learn new perspectives on whatever has troubled them and begin to heal. Clients' input and questions are always welcome.

We are all human and experience the struggles of life, but having a support person and therapist in your life to be by your side during these times can make it a lot easier. I genuinely enjoy getting to know people and cherish this time with my clients. I feel energized and motivated by my conversations with clients, the emotional exchanges that take place, and learning about each other’s backgrounds. Many therapists get into this field because they can relate to a client’s experiences, and I am one of those therapists.

My primary goal is to help you manage and succeed in life according to your own goals. At the same time, you want to be free of the emotional spaces that block self-expression. Through therapy you can safely confront and develop approaches to overcome fear. You can gain power over how you feel about your life. In life, you face tests and experience setbacks that challenge your ability to resolve difficult and longstanding issues. Your responses to these tests and setbacks reflect on your degree of self esteem, the value of personal and family relationships, and career aspirations.
