I relate to both men and women easily.
I help people build healthy relationships, work through painful break-ups, improve their social interactions and reduce their anxiety. If you are looking for clarity on your situation, struggling in a difficult relationship, worrying a great deal about upsetting others, feeling confused or overwhelmed, I can help. Particularly, if you or someone in your life identifies with traits of Narcissistic or Borderline Personality Disorder, I can help you cope, whether it's you or your loved one suffering from these symptoms.

I work with women struggling with relationships, low self-esteem, depression, anxiety, trauma, addiction, major life transitions, and finding balance. I’m interested in getting to know the whole you — which is someone far greater than any single role in life or any single struggle or experience. Your therapy will be tailored to your individual needs, and we will work together to define what you truly want out of life. Through building a compassionate and healing space, we can take an honest look inward to help you develop an enriching life that feels more meaningful and satisfying.

I have worked extensively with women , teens, and addicts.
At times, we experience painful feelings of guilt and shame, or think "I am not good enough". I specialize in helping individuals with severe sexual abuse & trauma. My primary approach is called EMDR, a mind and body therapy which can help you cope more effectively with painful emotions. When a person experiences mild to severe trauma such as abuse, divorce, job stress, or a life-threatening illness, the brain cannot always process the event as it should. As a result, trauma can have a lasting effect and can interfere with your relationships, job and coping with everyday life. EMDR treatment can help move toward healing.

If you're struggling with anxiety, depression, relationship challenges, personal/professional identity issues or anything that creates a barrier to living the life you desire, I can help. I work with women and men who are looking to engage in a safe and honest therapeutic relationship, in which you can explore those parts of yourself that are too vulnerable to share with the rest of the world. I believe the answers we all seek about life, love and purpose are buried within ourselves, waiting for us to find the courage to unveil and live them.

I specialize in working with women and mothers.
Adjusting to parenthood is one of the most profound transitions you will have in your lifetime. It is a time when support is truly needed. Not only is motherhood physically exhausting at times; it can be emotionally draining as well. The highs and pure love are often coupled with lows and uncertainty. Unfortunately, moms often do not share experiences that are outside the happiness ideal. If you are experiencing both highs and lows or feelings of ambivalence, you are not alone. These feelings are not a reflection of who you are as a person or mother.

I have also worked with women and men in recovery as well as adults with developmental disabilities.
The therapeutic process is unique to the client. For some it involves deep reflection and questioning old idea's, and for others a problem solving collaboration. For me it is the excitement of the journey you will embark on, and the endless possibilities for growth. Transparency is paramount, and key to the process for both client and therapist. Work is progressive and tailored to the individual. As issues emerge, treatment plans are re-assessed and revised to meet client needs. For trauma I am trained in EMDR and Functional Family Systems for addiction CBT and 12-step and for couples family systems.

” Clarissa Pinkola Estés, Women Who Run With the Wolves.
*CASELOAD FULL* Many survivors of trauma feel isolated from their supportive relationships and community, feeling intense and persistent fear, anxiety, agitation, and at times disconnection. Trauma dramatically shifts our experiences of the world and how we relate to others, leaving many feeling alone and stuck simply surviving. Trauma is a psychological injury, and is reparable and treatable. With a multimodal approach, I help clients restore a sense of safety in their environment and within themselves, deeply heal traumatic injuries, and reconnect within relationships and engage in meaningful lives.

As a Black biracial woman I understand the impact of lived experience on our healing.
Whether you're a person of color experiencing a high level of stress and worry or a mother of a Black/BIPOC child, race impacts your day to day. The folks I work with are looking to be understood in their experience. They struggle with questioning if they are the issue or if it's the world around them. They often work and live in high-stress and demanding environments where they are underrepresented. They seek community but they don't have the capacity to find it or know where to look.

I have had many years of gratifying experience in deeply engaging with the people I work with, and training and supervising doctoral students and therapists (many on this site have been my students!). Discovering what has been causing personal distress, worry, loneliness, or disappointment is what transforms life. These underlying stresses can cause problems with relationship, career, mood, or just general feelings of dissatisfaction. The personal growth that blooms in the therapy opens doors inside and out, and creates the rich opportunities and experiences we all want in life.

My goal is to listen well and provide the treatment that best meets your specific needs, to help you to identify your strengths and manage your vulnerabilities. In my work with families I encourage each person to express his/her individuality, and to cope with differences -striving for mutuality, fairness and harmony. My chief concern is with maximizing your capacities and potential, and helping you improve your relationship to yourself and to others. Together we may engage with imagery, sensory experiencing, movement, art, poetry and music to deepen self awareness and understanding (and relief from discomfort)

These are such intense and overwhelming times. We are all grieving. Before 2020 maybe you had some anxiety or a history of trauma but overall you were functioning and feeling OK without ongoing therapy. Or despite all you do to take care of yourself, you were experiencing quite a bit of anxiety and stress, struggling with feelings of shame, anger or self-hatred for a very long time. Since 2020 and that's happened your nervous system is on overload and everything feels overwhelming, exhausting, scary. The existential pain you’ve struggled with is back and real and being felt by you and people all over the world.

You may be feeling sad, anxious, overwhelmed, or confused. You may be experiencing a difficult life transition or feel that something is missing in your life. It is important to find a therapist with whom you have a good fit, a feeling that your therapist "gets" you in order to develop the trust necessary in a therapeutic relationship. I have over 35 years of experience helping people in a safe, non-judgmental environment. It is through feeling understood that we come to understand ourselves better.
