I specialize in working with relationship issues, self-esteem, trauma/abuse, and family therapy .
I believe that a profound desire lies within each of us to thrive and live to our highest potential. I view therapy as a collaborative journey which encourages self-awareness and self-acceptance through the process of being present. In my work I seek to help my clients bring compassionate attention to the various dimensions of their emotional experience, may it be boundless joy or deep sadness. As we become more aware of our thoughts, feelings, and actions, we are better able to navigate through struggle and uncertainty.

My practice is intuitive and client specific. Clients come to me with a wide arrange of intentions and desires; processing trauma, managing stress and anxiety, overcoming depression, wishing to grow spiritually/personally, identify areas in which they are stuck, diagnoses, family and relational troubles, or support in dealing with every day life. I strive to offer a safe, attuned, and empathetic space. I appreciate collaborating with my clients in a way that works for them. The most rewarding part of being a therapist is seeing my clients grow, discover, and know themselves deeper. I am honored to be a witness and facilitator.

I am extensively trained in several trauma-based modalities, including Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Somatic Experiencing (SE), Brainspotting, and Internal Family Systems (IFS).
Anxious, depressed, or stuck? I work to create a safe, non-judgmental space for adults and adolescents of all religions, races, sexualities, and genders to process their life needs, wants, and fears. I provide psychotherapy within the context of a therapeutic working alliance; by first building trust and safety in the therapeutic relationship, one can then work towards tackling larger life goals. I work from a core belief that our minds and bodies are deeply connected. Treating the whole person, including the impact of stress on their physical body, is an important component to treating trauma, grief, anxiety, depression, and more.

Yes, parenting feels hard, because it is hard. You are probably here because of your concerns for your child’s intense emotions and behaviors. It may be the tantrums that never seem to stop, or the biting and the hitting that feel too intense. It may be the rising anxiety and worries that your child is struggling with. Perhaps you feel depleted and lost from sifting through strategy after strategy while struggling to balance family life, relationships, work, and day-to-day chores. Has it been challenging for you to simply enjoy your child because you feel consumed by guilt, frustration, and worry as a parent? You are not alone.

I integrate cognitive behavioral, family systems and psychodynamic treatments that are personalized to each client and their needs.
Life is about feeling connected, sharing in the joys and sorrows, and striving for something better, a better you. Therapy is a place where you can share and explore the challenges and achievements that make each of us an individual. I believe that forming a safe, non-judgmental relationship is fundamental to therapy and what guides the healing process. We work together in order to gain insight and learn healthy coping skills in managing challenges faced and the feelings associated with them. I believe that the most difficult job is working on ourselves but it is also the most rewarding.

It can be difficult to adjust to life stressors, break-ups, job frustrations, and family challenges.
Are you ready to try something different? Life, and the changes that come with it, can be really difficult at times, especially in this modern age. Does this sound familiar? You wake up one morning and it just feels too difficult to get yourself going. You are watching your friends go through life events while you feel like you're still trying to figure things out. You find yourself crying while driving your car, and you can't explain why. You are constantly arguing with a loved one and you just can't stop.

I pull from a variety of therapeutic approaches to develop a treatment plan that is effective and unique to you and your family .
As beautiful and fulfilling as parenting can be, it can also be just as stressful and frustrating. Daily tasks such as homework, chores, or getting ready for school have become a struggle. Trips to the grocery store, park, or restaurant feel like walking on eggshells to avoid the next meltdown. Interactions with peers or siblings seem to often turn into arguments, fighting, or shutting down. When your child is struggling with emotional or behavioral challenges related to anxiety, depression, trauma, ADHD, or something else it can be hard to understand where to start or how to support them.

I am LBGTQIA+ and BIPOC affirming and I specialize in trauma, early family /parent wounds, depression, anxiety, relationship issues, identity issues, and overwhelming life stressors.
Come to therapy exactly as you are—my job is to meet you there. I believe that we all have the innate ability to heal and thrive; I am here to facilitate this process rather than “fix” you, as none of us are broken to begin with. Together, we will reflect on your unique experiences, reconnect to the strengths you already possess, and examine the limiting beliefs and patterns that no longer serve you. I work from an integrated mind+body approach and incorporate attachment theory, nervous system regulation, mindfulness, self-compassion, parts work, and body-based approaches.

The process of finding a therapist can often be a daunting first step, and it can be difficult to know who to trust and who can help. A good fit with a therapist includes a feeling of safety and a belief that your therapist has the ability to help you. Clients who find themselves at home in my practice are people who experience chronic depression or anxiety, individuals with a history of family wounding (abuse, DV, neglect), individuals with relationship issues, couples with difficulty resolving arguments, teens in crisis, and those feeling stuck or in transition.

I offer trauma processing approaches, such as informed eye movement desensitization and reprocessing, and an internal family system to help you to heal the hurts.
Are the feelings of helplessness and powerlessness always present in your life? Have you been acting fine while there is a lot of anxiety, hurt, and anger inside? Having this mental state can be painful. Many people learn not to talk about it and get busy in their life. This avoidance can worsen their anxiety and depression. And it can develop other mental health symptoms, such as panic attacks, insomnia, and obsessive compulsive disorders. Trauma and attachment injuries are often the root causes of the issues.

I work through modalities that meet my client's needs including Attachment Based, Relational, Family /Martial, Strength Based, Trauma Focused, Cognitive Behavioral etc.
I see therapy as working towards a new improved and more empowered you. I view and treat my client as the expert in his/her life. I view myself as a facilitator of emotional healing and change. I provide a non-judgmental environment where my client can explore relationships and other aspects of his or her life and decide upon changes or adjustments he or she can implement. Therapy is a safe space where perfection is not required or expected.

I also work with clients who are facing life transitions (a new job, becoming a parent) and those struggling with challenging family members.
The therapeutic process is about becoming most fully ourselves. The more we come to know ourselves in an authentic and true way, the more fulfilling our lives and our relationships become. Change occurs when there is a new understanding, not just in our intellectual mind, but in our bodies and spirits as well. This kind of work, though difficult, and sometimes painful, is also deeply rewarding. It can also seem like a scary idea to some, not knowing if making lasting change is even possible.

Family Therapy

What do family therapists do?

A family therapist facilitates the process of understanding and improving how a family functions. The therapist will help family members develop empathy for one another. They’ll seek to understand existing patterns, misunderstandings, and conflicts that arise, in order to help the family arrive at a realistic, unified understanding and develop the coping skills they need to build stronger relationships.

How long does therapy for families take to work?

Therapy manifests differently in every family; a common time frame is 12 weekly sessions, but some families may see improvement after just a few weeks. Families should discuss their goals with the therapist at the beginning of the process and periodically revisit those goals to assess their progress together.

How can you encourage a family member to attend family therapy?

You can encourage family members to attend therapy by expressing with both love and concern the challenges you see and explaining how a therapist could help the family navigate those challenges together. An outside perspective can help everyone feel heard, get on the same page, and develop new skills. If family members are still hesitant, it may be helpful to emphasize that family therapy is short-term—it won’t last forever.

Is therapy for families effective?

Family therapy can significantly improve family dynamics and relationships. Research suggests that family therapy can help individuals understand their role in the family, communicate and solve problems together, reduce conflict and draw boundaries when necessary, and develop coping skills for stressors, major life changes, and mental or physical illnesses within the family.
