I work with individuals and couples and specialize in relationships, anxiety, maternal mental health, cultural identity/generation gaps, boundary setting, and grief .
Welcome! Therapy should be practical and approachable. As a relationship specialist, my collaborative focus is on the "why" of where you are. When we understand why, we can navigate the hurdles getting in your way with insight and healthy coping skills that are effective. You will not be alone in this; we will be working together on expanding awareness of your thoughts, feelings and ways that you engage with the world. This process opens up space for healthier, more intentional relationships that you can actually enjoy (including the one with yourself)! At the core of my practice is an authentic, warm and compassionate presence.

I have experience working with a wide range of issues including loss , childhood trauma, fear/ anxiety, sexuality, relationships, inner-critic and life-path struggles.
I am interested in your unique life journey, your struggles and your deepest longings. Therapy helps transform limiting patterns that keep us stuck and unable to experience life in a more fulfilling and nourishing way. With a compassionate and collaborative presence, I support others in reconnecting with themselves, deepening relationships, and feeling aligned with their true nature. Uncovering obstacles and connecting with inner guidance helps alleviate suffering and makes room for new possibilities and enlivening choices to emerge.

I am a licensed marriage and family therapist associate and I specialize in working with relationship issues, addiction, grief , anxiety and depression.
A mentor of mine once said, “No one ever sits you down as a kid and warns you that this whole being a human thing is intense. Most of the time we all walk around pretending like it’s not a big deal.” This lack of preparation creates a profound disconnection that negatively affects mental health. In psychotherapy, I aim to work collaboratively with my clients in order to help them reconnect to the moment to moment experience of their life and improve their overall wellbeing.

I’m committed to being supportive as clients work through anxiety, grief , depression, trauma and relational transitions.
"We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty." (Maya Angelou) I understand that as we experience life we will inevitably encounter obstacles and stressors that challenge us to change. I also believe these moments present opportunities for transformation. I recognize that life transitions and personal experiences can sometimes be overwhelming, however they can also be valuable seasons with the potential to generate "peak and valley" experiences that can alter our life course.

I work with clients dealing with diverse issues: depression, anxiety, self-esteem, relational conflict, identity, parenting, divorce, adoption, and loss due to life transitions.
Therapy is a gift of time and of a safe, supportive space for self-examination. Therapy provides awareness of the choice to shape our lives in meaningful ways. It's a collaborative process between client and therapist facilitating personal growth through exploration of the client's unique beliefs, feelings and behaviors. Pasts influence present realities in ways that are often outside of our awareness, and thus have a profound impact on how we view ourselves, connections to others, and place in the world. Losses and changes create disillusionment and helplessness if not processed to allow forward movement and renewed meaning.

I am comfortable working with issues of grief and loss .
I work with individuals and couples on a variety of relationship and interpersonal issues. I believe that each of has the innate desire and ability to lead satisfying and fulfilling lives. We are often stuck in old patterns of behavior and relating. Working together we can explore those patterns and how to move beyond them. There are times in our lives when feelings of isolation, depression, loneliness pervade. It is helpful to have a trained professional to discuss these feelings with.

I specialize in issues related to grief and loss , living with chronic or life-limiting illness, caregiving, depression, anxiety, and the daily stress or challenges encountered as people progress through key life transitions.
In times of personal crisis, it is natural to feel overwhelmed, alone, and disconnected from friends, family, and even yourself. When your usual strategies for "snapping out of it" are no longer working, you may feel stuck, irritable, fatigued, or generally disinterested in activities that would normally bring pleasure or meaning to your life. Ironically, it is often during your most vulnerable times that you also have the greatest capacity for healing and renewal. I believe in the resilience of the human spirit and the capacity for positive change - even in the darkest of times.

Finding the right therapist is challenging and taking the first step can be really scary. While I believe the mind and body are built to heal themselves, sometimes recovery is hard to navigate on your own. I utilize a variety of treatment models including Internal Family Systems, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing.) I specialize in eating disorders, grief , and loss , anxiety, depression, addiction, and trauma-related issues. I primarily work with adolescents, couples, and adults. I'm a weight-inclusive, Health At Every Size, and an Intuitive Eating-aligned clinician.

I am also passionate about helping couples strengthen their communication and their connection. If you're struggling to understand each other, facing a perpetual problem, or simply curious about improving your relationship, it can help to have a third person in the room to make sense of what is happening and provide you with tools to move forward.

I specialize in addressing depression, anxiety, daily stress, burnout, grief and loss , health challenges, and high conflict issues in your personal and professional life.
Life journey is like a bumpy rollercoaster. The ride comes with loops, highs and lows. Similarly, at times, your happiness and highs may dwindle, and you are bound to face hardship, feel alone, overwhelmed, and success may feel meaningless because you are worn down and fatigued. The things you love may no longer give you pleasure. I believe that just like a lotus flower that blooms in the mud, human spirit is strong and capable of resilience, growth and change. YOU are NOT alone! Together we can address your challenges and fears, life patters, develop strengths and skills, and revisit self love so you can live your best life.

In addition, I specialize in intimacy concerns, grief /abandonment, identity issues, and life transitions.
Do you struggle with depression, anxiety, and trauma? Do you experience difficulties managing family and relationship issues? I believe that healing happens when we pay attention to all the parts that make us whole—our mind, body, and soul. The subconscious mind controls most of our reality and choices, so building awareness and active presence can improve the quality of daily living and assist in not only surviving, but thriving through life. As an intuitive & holistic therapist, I will assist you in strengthening your inner psyche and developing new tools to manage negative feelings and thoughts.

With many years of experience, I facilitate client's growth through techniques designed to take people deeply into their "shadow" side while acknowledging that therapy is a relationship where healing can take place by assisting the individual in being seen for who they really are, freeing them up to be who they are, whether they have felt excluded or have been traumatized or struggling to find healthy relationships. Experience with all ages allows me to help clients with whatever issue they bring to our relationship. My ideal client has suffered a loss or failure. The pain from this motivates them to want change and growth.

Grief Therapists
Grief and Bereavement is the acute pain that accompanies loss. Because it is a reflection of what we love, it can feel all-encompassing. Grief is not limited to the loss of people, but when it follows the loss of a loved one, it may be compounded by feelings of guilt and confusion, especially if the relationship was a difficult one.
