Right now pretty much everything in our world is being informed by anxiety about the pandemic. It’s possibly worsening old fears or sadness. If you had a sense of being disconnected from yourself or others before this crisis, social distancing may easily increase a feeling of being alone. Or living with a partner may make you feel the need of more physical or psychological space. It’s not surprising if you’re feeling a bit rudderless or without a psychological center. What you may need more than anything is a personal anchor, which is one way to look at my role as a therapist.

When you were young, you imagined things would all come together when you became an adult. Others may see you as successful, composed, or upbeat, but they don’t see the whole picture. They know nothing about your anxious thoughts, about your past and the way it still affects you, or your insecurities. Some days it can be hard to look in the mirror after comparing yourself to those on social media, siblings and friends, or to your own high standards. Words like "stay positive" and "be grateful" can leave you feeling unheard or misunderstood. It feels impossible to be excited or motivated for life when you feel this way.

My goal in therapy is to walk alongside you on this journey, to be a guide and helper. I believe that every person is an expert in their own life. I see therapy as a space to redefine one’s core beliefs – I am unlovable, I am unworthy – and create positive change. I utilize a person-centered therapeutic approach while incorporating components of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Prolonged Exposure, Narrative Exposure, Trauma-Informed Therapies & Mindfulness-Based techniques. I specialize in working with folks who have experienced complex trauma.

I understand that reaching out can be a difficult step. Sometimes we find ourselves struggling with problems that seem overwhelming. Other times, we may feel that our problems are not big enough to need help with, or that we have too many responsibilities to stop and take time out for ourselves. If you find that you are struggling in areas of your life such as work, school, or interpersonal relationships it may be time to reach out for some support. As a Marriage and Family Therapist, I work with individuals, couples and families, and groups.

People come to me feeling disconnected from themselves and what matters most to them in life. For over a decade, I have helped people recover from upsetting experiences and toxic relationships that have shaken them to their core. Many of those I help also work in creative fields or are entrepreneurs, the work stresses of which can collide with traumatic pasts and lead to feeling unsettled and unsure of how to relate to people both personally and professionally.

I view therapy as a safe space where clients can feel empowered to share their stories as they experience them. My primary goal as a clinician is not to “fix” you, my goal is to support you on your internal journey as you cultivate the skills necessary to grow and heal in a conducive manner. My function as a clinician is to help clients navigate and dissect their stories as a way to help them understand the meaning behind their experiences. I always encourage my clients to come to therapy as they are and we will begin the therapeutic process from there. I DO NOT work with MINORS and FAMILIES.

So many of us are misunderstood, feel the need to hide our authentic selves, or are unsure of who we even are. Old beliefs keep us stuck and afraid to live the life we desire to live. My passion is ignited when I can bridge the gap between the old stories we tell ourselves and the new ones we write together. Bring me your old stories and beliefs. I welcome all of them. Let's explore where they come from and decide what you want to keep and what no longer serves you. I create a safe holding environment through radical presence and non-judgment. I am collaborative and I trust my clients to know themselves in ways I never could.

I am passionate about supporting clients who are working to embrace intersectional identities by helping them to fully integrate all parts of themselves, including parts that have been previously marginalized and/or shameful, as well as working with parents and children in family therapy to resolve previous hurts, explore and better understand familial roles, and build healthy relationships. I also really love helping couples and partners looking to increase intimacy to identify and examine their interactional patterns and renegotiate their roles to build stronger, more loving attachments with each other.

A lifelong student and teacher of the psychological and spiritual life, I am significantly influenced by the writings of psychologist Carl Jung and others, as well as spiritual teachers of various faiths. I generally work with clients from a combination of psychological modalities with one direction in mind - allowing the needs of the client to direct the way. Deeper work may also be necessary to unearth old wounds and resolve unhealthy patterns of behavior. I am also skilled in helping those who are transitioning through changes in career, life, and relationships.

While I love working with women in their 20's and 30's, I am also VERY passionate about working with adolescents and their families! This is such a crucial time in our brain's development, and my goal in therapy is to assist my client's and their parents in learning how to manage the complexities of this dynamic period of life. Teenage years are a time of rapid growth and desire for autonomy. This can be very disruptive to the family system without the proper tools to manage the overwhelming emotions that adolescence is infamously known for, and unfortuantely some teens turn to unhelpful coping tools to avoid discomfort and stress.

Life can bring about many obstacles - whether stressors or a medical condition - and a therapist can facilitate change or healing. I specialize in providing psychotherapy to individuals experiencing adjustment issues to a medical condition or stressor, anxiety, depression, trauma, or a spiritual crisis. If you have cognitive difficulties, I provide cognitive rehabilitation and executive skills coaching to strengthen your mental abilities to engage in home and work. At times, neurological injury brings behavioral changes. We can jointly develop a behavioral plan to manage behaviors to improve relationships and ensure safety.
