Are you feeling more anxious than usual? Do you continue to compare yourself to everyone around you and self-doubt kicks in? Through a warm and collaborative process, I am here to help identify and uncover the patterns that have kept you stuck. Beginning therapy can mean the start of a new way of seeing and living. You may find that you only need short term therapy to help you get through a transition in your life or you may need more time to process and uncover the truth behind your emotional struggle. However I can best serve you is my priority.

I am a therapist and energy healer who works at the intersections of healing, spirituality, and social change. I support people on their journeys of liberation and reclaiming their sovereignty and wholeness. Prior to being a therapist, I worked as an immigrant rights attorney. I wanted to support people in getting free from oppressive and broken systems. Over time, I realized that we deeply internalize many of these oppressive systems and I became more interested in how we can liberate our hearts, minds, bodies, and souls from their harm and reinforcement.

Sometimes navigating life just feels difficult. When we become stressed, painful experiences from our past can impact our present, interfering with our self-talk, perceptions, and relationships with others. We might even notice ourselves falling into unhelpful patterns, which can leave us feeling isolated, stuck, and perhaps a little lost. It makes sense: how can we connect with the world around us when we feel so disconnected from ourselves?

I want to help you to feel safe, calm, and supported in both your mind and body. Do you feel on edge, unable to relax, anxious, and overwhelmed? Emotions are sensations felt in your body. Stressful/ Traumatic situations hijack our mind and body which causes physiological and psychological dysregulation. I’m trained in Somatic Experiencing, Polyvagal Informed Therapy, and Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy. These are neuroscience-based techniques that help with Trauma, PTSD, Grief, Depression, Anxiety, mood dysregulation, and stress-related disorders.

I specialize in working with children with emotional or behavioral challenges. That means children of all ages, both those of chronological age, and the children that still exist within all of us. I use a whole person, whole family approach, which includes sessions with the child, as well as coaching and discussion sessions with the parents or occasionally the entire family. For children's behavior to change, the behavior of the caretakers must change as well.

As a psychologist with doctoral and post-doctoral training in psychotherapy I work with people across the lifespan to achieve their fullest potential. Many adults come to me struggling with anxiety, depression, or relationships issues; lacking satisfaction in their academic or professional lives; or wrestling with life transitions. Young adults and teens need help navigating complex social terrain, managing stress, and risky behaviors while their parents benefit from guidance and support. Children benefit from play therapy and the involvement of their families in treatment.

My heart-felt passion is to walk with people through life experiences. Throughout the day we are faced with frequent decision-making processes. Our choices (consciously or unconsciously) can shift the direction of our life. Finding your core values and beliefs is a dynamic journey. Therapeutic exploration will revolutionize your ability to process emotions, weigh options, and significantly improve overall decision making. It is my firm belief that through human connection (relationships) we can collaboratively restore internal hope and self-actualization, revitalizing our perceptions and behaviors.

If you’re struggling with challenging emotions, traumas, or unfulfilling relationships, it’s essential that you feel understood and supported by your therapist. But therapy should do more than just provide relief for one hour a week–it should result in lasting, positive changes to your outlook on life, self-esteem, and day-to-day habits. In my practice as a therapist, I use the research on what works to help my clients get the outcomes they want: better relationships, managed anxiety, less depression, and more control over life.

Fred Talisman MFT 20+ years relationship saving marriage counselor. CAN YOUR RELATIONSHIP BE SAVED? I've helped lots of clients, who were on the verge of losing their relationship for good, to stop their breakup even if they feared it was beyond saving and even if they were the only one who wants to save it. In my experience, most relationships end unnecessarily and the breakup could have been prevented, even if there's been cheating, with the right kind of help. Also, I've helped to save lots of relationships where only one person got my direct help.

Are you feeling stuck? Do you feel anxious, depressed, or trapped in the chaos of negative thoughts, but don't know how to change? Are you unfulfilled in your relationships? These struggles may keep you awake at night, searching for a way to feel more overall peace and well being. Traumatic experiences make it difficult to break through pain and hopelessness, and may be leading you to self-destructive patterns. Your pain and emotional suffering is bearable when you share it.
