A client once told me, "If you have someone to whom you are willing to confess the foolish things you do, then count yourself among the blessed." Life can be hard, let's talk it out together. I understand that choosing a therapist is a difficult decision. Being a good match to your specific needs is important to me. My goal is to make the process as comfortable, safe, and simple as possible. Therapy is a collaborative process and I want to be on your team.

Are you concerned about your child's wellbeing? As a licensed psychologist with over 15 years of clinical experience, I specialize in treating children/adolescents who present with anxiety, depression, and disruptive behaviors that impact their functioning in home, school, and social settings. I enjoy working with children and their parents helping children learn how to regulate and tolerate feelings (anger, frustration, sadness, and anxiety), manage challenging/disruptive/impulsive behaviors, and acquire adaptive, positive coping skills. I assist parents in learning how to regulate their own feelings and be aware of their behaviors so they can help their child.

Welcome to the psychotherapy world! I work in a collaborative and compassionate style to help further understand and address the concerns that led you to search for some relief from the way you are currently feeling. We all try to use the best coping strategies but when excessive worries, valid or not, obsessions, depression or life stress begin to overwhelm these strategies, it is often a time to seek professional help. We work together to conceptualize the problem and provide you with tools to reduce your current distress and facilitate recovery.

I provide online video-based therapy for adults who are seeking a respectful, collaborative space to explore their inner experiences. My strengths lie in my attentive witnessing to emotion and body as pathways to unlocking each person’s innate ability to heal themselves, access authenticity, and achieve goals to build towards their vision of a meaningful life. The language of depression, anxiety, trauma, OCD, neurodiversity and more may be helpful in addressing day to day challenges or symptoms, though I also see each person as a complex whole of self, relationships, and culture. Whatever brings you to therapy, you are welcome.

Are you wanting to start therapy for the first time or wanting to jump back in and feeling unsure? Starting for the first time or getting back in to therapy can bring up a lot of feelings and thoughts. If you’re wondering if now is the right time, it probably is. You may be feeling lost in your life and wondering what the next step is. Maybe you feel disconnected or unfulfilled in relationships or at work or school. You may find that you tend to be more concerned with how others feel than how you feel. Maybe you’re wishing that your life had more purpose or meaning.

People enter into therapy for many reasons. Often the catalyst is difficulty with a relationship, a job, or a way of coping. Anxiety and depression can provide the stimulus to seek help. When they intrude into everyday waking consciousness they are indicators that something is out of balance and needs to be addressed. Areas of particular interest within my practice are parent-child difficulties, especially the early stages of parenting; relationships; finding one's voice and inner authority; creativity; grief and loss; and the struggle to live one's own life.

I take great care of my clients; I practice in a trauma-informed, culturally-responsive and gender-responsive manner. I have experience helping others work through adjustment periods and struggles. Often, these can overwhelm, and at times, debilitate, create stress, anxiety, depression and strain your interpersonal relationships. As your therapist, you honor me by sharing your story. I incorporate various evidence-based approaches and recognize that everyone's situation is unique. Together we will develop a highly personalized treatment plan that maximizes your chances of success.

When we understand the relationship between our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, we can create long-lasting change. Therapy is an opportunity to learn about ourselves, begin the healing process, and most importantly, get some relief. I have spent many years working in treatment programs, focusing on mental health and addiction. While substance abuse therapy is centered on building coping skills and learning relapse prevention strategies, I work with clients to understand the relationship they had with substances.

I believe that we as humans can turn pain into power (I have experienced this myself)! I also believe that when you feel seen, understood, and safe, healing happens. There are not many places where we can come to be, breathe, and experience unconditional acceptance. Therapy is a place where you can show up as yourself, keep it real, cry, laugh, and do everything in between without feeling judged. It also provides an experience of safety, calm, openness, and engagement.

I am here to help you embrace your authenticity and find liberation from stories, patterns, habits and ways of being that don't fit who you want to be. I am passionate about working with young adults navigating adulthood and transitioning into life beyond families of origin; folks healing from racial trauma and minority stress; and couples and partners looking for better communication, security, and connection. I am especially drawn to working with LGBTQ+ adolescents and young adults embracing queerness and supporting other white, cis men to cultivate their own vulnerable, feminist masculinity and allyship.
