Our gentle, accelerated cutting edge tools--EMDR, Somatic Experiencing, Mindfulness and Attachment Repair--do just that.
We’re finding ourselves living in a fragmented world, trying to hold it together when the nature of things is to fall apart. How can we feel whole within so much fragmentation? The big questions arise: Who am I now? What matters to me? How do I enliven myself within these restrictions? We are all grieving, mourning lost friends, illusions of safety, illusions of control and predictability, opportunities gone that will never return. Are you sadder? Sadder and wiser but more adrift? Are past traumas holding you back? Right now is the time to get more support as you grapple with your life's meaning and purpose.

Integrating an eclectic, strength-based approach incorporating mindfulness , narrative, psychodynamic, and CBT techniques, I believe that being direct (without being confrontational) is essential to a successful therapeutic relationship.
Change can be hard but all you need to do is take the first step. I'd be honored to walk along with you on that journey & make it a little easier. I've worked with individuals who are seeking to live more authentically, slow down, be less reactive, and be more in tune with their emotions. While some clients are looking for immediate solutions, others want to explore the “why” behind it all. I believe we can focus on both. We'll move at your pace to understand what isn't working and why. I'm also passionate about helping couples seeking to improve their communication and reduce conflict leading to increased intimacy and connection.

My approach blends mind-body awareness, mindfulness , transpersonal and existential psychology, and Internal Family Systems (IFS).
Things are crazy right now, huh? Our world is in an extreme state of uncertainty which can tax our existing coping strategies, shed light on unhelpful habits, and challenge us with fundamental questions about ourselves and our place in the world. I work with clients wanting to lean into these issues and offer a warm presence as they explore what’s happening underneath. Typically, I work with those struggling with trauma, depression, and/or anxiety, wanting to untangle the influences of their past. I also offer support to those that are dabbling with psychedelics by providing risk reduction and integration.

Using gentle, accelerated tools proven to treat trauma such as EMDR, somatic therapy, mindfulness and attachment repair, you can integrate mind, heart, body and feel good.
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.

I work with the philosophical and spiritual dimension of life and incorporate this through mindfulness meditation, discussion and suggested readings.
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)

Advanced training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Mindfulness -Based approaches.
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 incorporate creativity, humor and compassion alongside evidenced based therapeutic modalities which include CBT, ACT, motivational interviewing and mindfulness , to support you in creating meaningful life changes.
Often times we get stuck in patterns related to our thoughts or behaviors that get in the way of us getting to where we want to go. These patterns can worsen symptoms of anxiety, depression and at times, interfere with our relationships and overarching goals. Through a collaborative approach, I aim at helping you explore your own motivation to take meaningful steps in creating the life you want to live by examining these patterns.

I interweave EMDR, Somatic Experiencing, attachment repair, and mindfulness to regulate the nervous system.
“Why can’t I move past this?” “Will I ever feel better?” “Is there any help for me?” While trauma may be a painful inevitability of being human, it can provide an opportunity for growth with help and support. My path to healing and wholeness came after a particularly dark time in my life. I became a somatic trauma therapist because I found that traditional talk therapy too often attempts to rationalize what seems to be irrational. The fact is, our nervous systems react in ways that make perfect sense in the face of traumatic experiences.

As a trauma therapist, I interweave scientifically-based techniques: EMDR, Somatic Experiencing, trauma-informed mindfulness , and empathic reflection gently and organically into our work to accelerate the healing that your mind is naturally wired for.
The past can get in the way of living the life you truly desire. This can feel like a deep sense of unworthiness or a fear of being who you really are and asking for what you really want. Do you get lost in worrying? Or caught in the same patterns not knowing how to break the cycle? Instead of feeling calm and joy, you find yourself emotionally spiraling, judging and trying to gain control of every moment. It can be hard to trust that things are going to be ok or that you will be able to handle it if things are not ok.

Thank you for taking a moment to read about me and my work. My approach uses insight and depth psychotherapy combined with Mindfulness within a framework of awareness of the body. When our living process becomes stuck, therapy can move it forward. If you feel stuck in repetitive behaviors, painful feelings, and recurring anxious thoughts, I want to help you to identify how you are bogged down, so you can feel better. I can help to re-focus a sense of purpose...a way to step into your life more completely. This may include taking action if feeling adrift, or bringing clarity to a relationship.

Perhaps you struggle to navigate your emotions, thoughts, behaviors, or relationships. Let me help you find meaning, patterns, and ultimately relief, with compassion, insight, and tools to heal. Through this process, I hope you will find a greater sense of calm, clarity, and agency.

I work with both athletes and non-athletes to use the combined power of body and mind to improve symptoms of anxiety, depression, stress and the related physical health symptoms that can include immune, gut and skin conditions. (Conditions such as Fibromyalgia, RA, Psoriasis, IBS, Lupus and many others can be partially caused, flared or prolonged due to psychological stress).

I am also an art therapist and enjoy working with clients who want to dig deeper through creative ways when words are not enough. I am adoption competent and an adoptee myself, and I am also LGBTQ+ affirming.

I use individual psychotherapy, EMDR,* mindfulness meditation, and somatic therapy in the self-healing mind approach.
I am interested in treating people whose potential is hindered by negative concepts of themselves imprinted in childhood (through traumatic experiences or neglect of basic emotional needs) and who frequently suffer from symptoms like chronic depression, anxiety and low self-esteem. I am committed to helping these individuals attain a sense of self that brings them happiness and fulfillment. My basic perspective is that the human mind possesses the capacity to heal itself, if guided in the right way. I have explored various methods and approaches to helping the mind restore its basic wholeness.

My therapeutic style is engaging and directive, combining a holistic approach with training in cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, mindfulness based stress reduction, post induction therapy for trauma, and informed knowledge and application of 12-step recovery tools and spiritual principles.
I invite you to reach out and call if your interested in embarking on a journey of self-discovery and change in a comfortable environment filled with kindness, understanding, laughter and hope. Choosing a therapist that "fits" can be challenging. My unique style, knowledge, enthusiasm, and passion are qualities that support and encourage the development of practical healing strategies to deal with relationship conflict, developmental trauma, addiction, depression, and anxiety issues, career/occupational stress, and LGBT concerns. Transforming difficulties into opportunities for growth, connection, improved passion and potential is the key to effective therapy.

Engaging in psychotherapy is a positive step toward realizing a satisfying life.

Psychotherapy can provide relief from ongoing, unwelcome feelings such as: sadness, loneliness, anxiety, depression, confusion, fear or anger.
