Overall, a greater connection to self and loved ones can be achieved, leaving you the person, partner, and parent you want to be.
Transitions can create disconnect and emotional distress. Becoming a parent can be especially challenging. We may feel overwhelmed, burned out, or just struggling to find joy. Our relationships may suffer, creating feelings of isolation and loneliness. Interrupted sleep and added stress make it hard to engage in daily life. We may carry guilt or shame as we struggle to fulfill the needs of those we love, leaving our own needs unmet. The transition to parenting young children may also mark a shift in identity, struggling to define who we are and "how to remain me." Being a parent does not have to be so hard — relief is in reach.

I also specialize in therapy that focuses on the relationship between the child and parents.
My therapeutic approach mainly focuses on helping my clients identify their strengths to help alleviate anxiety, depression, and trauma. I am a firm believer that our childhood experiences contribute to our beliefs, behavioral patterns, and selecting a romantic partner. Therapy is a process! To allow ourselves to be intimate and vulnerable with someone about our experiences and trauma can be daunting. As a therapist, it is my goal to help validate, create a safe environment and help understand aspects of lived experiences.

My clients are adults, teens, and couples, but I specialize in women's issues.
Staying sane in an insane world is crazy-making! As our modern culture has become more complicated, so have our lives. Living at a fast pace, we may find ourselves feeling isolated, lost, or even hopeless. In these times I believe it is courageous to seek therapy when something "feels off." You already possess the skills you need to live the life you envision. I can help you identify and move past blockages and emotional clutter. My role in this process is to provide engagement and collaboration as we approach the discomfort, grief, or fear with curiosity and compassion.

My job as a therapist is to fill my bag full of tools to offer you, in order to help facilitate the growth and healing you desire. Whether it is Ketamine Assisted Therapy, EMDR, or mindfulness, there is a path to healing for everyone. Life challenges can cause us to lose touch with our inner voice and leave us feeling disconnected from ourselves. I help individuals and couples to reconnect to that inner voice that guides you towards what you want, what you believe is right, and towards any healing that may need to be done.

Life transitions and change often bring up feelings of uncertainty and worry. Although, these transitions are often expected or even decided by us, it can cause an overwhelming sense of doubt and sometimes feelings of grief. I work with clients who are experiencing challenges with life transitions, like motherhood, coming in or out of a relationship, and grief and loss. My approach is to make meaning of your losses and transitions, support you through your experience and identify strategies to help you feel grounded, connected and seen.

Do you and your partner have a hard time resolving conflict? Is the struggle to connect making you feel alone and misunderstood? Or, if you're divorced, is the level of acrimony between you and your ex so intense that it feels impossible to co-parent? I help both partnered and divorced couples learn how to regulate their emotions and communicate skillfully. I also help people who struggle with sexual compulsivity and love addiction learn to manage their feelings without resorting to destructive behaviors or staying attached to unhealthy people.

I hope to create a safe and inviting space where I can foster a supportive therapeutic relationship.
In dealing with stressors, life events, challenging relationships, and traumatic experiences we develop patterns to keep ourselves safe and sane; which often also limits us. The challenge is unlearning these narratives and trusting our innate wisdom. When we feel safe, secure and accepted for who we are we can begin the process of shedding what doesn’t work for us, while exploring our untapped potential. I believe you are the master of your story; and I hope to create a safe space where we can gain insight about your inner battles, develop skills to enhance holistic development, and realize the potential of your authentic self.
