I have specialized training in sexual assault , molestation, IPV (intimate partner violence), immigration and dislocation.
Forrest Gump may have said it best, "Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you're gonna get." So... how do we cope with what we 'get'? Or -- how do we change it up if need be? Here you may be at a crossroads. Maybe you need help navigating intense emotions, relationships or loss. Maybe covid-life has hit you hard. Therapy can help with many of life's challenges; even help to restore a sense of joy and curiosity; agency and ability. Together we can build understanding and cultivate a sense of balance that is beneficial for you and your relationships.

I work with adults who have survived childhood sexual, emotional, or physical abuse and/or neglect and want to heal and thrive, former foster youth, adult adoptees, survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault , those who have experienced traumatic grief, and clients with a history substance abuse as a result of trauma.
Sometimes, even the strongest people amongst us need a little bit of help to work through some of life’s more challenging problems. Everyone has battles to fight and hurdles to overcome at some point. I have seen the positive impact that therapy can have when you are willing to do the work. I use Brainspotting as a tool to help my clients heal from their trauma.

Where deeper work is needed, I often use projective therapies, such as Art therapy,or Sand tray,as well as work books that address healing from depression, sexual abuse , ADHD, and grief.
I believe the therapeutic relationship is an important piece of the process through which growth and healing can occur. Helping clients to feel safe enough to share their feelings is paramount, and to offer hope is vital. It is important for the fearful to know that courage is being afraid, but doing it anyway. This concept promotes self esteem, and helps people to move forward in their lives. I use a variety of theoretical orientations, but chose the ones that are best suited for my client needs. I give clients tools to work with that will help them change their negative thoughts to positive ones..

); and anger, violence & trauma (including domestic violence and sexual abuse ).
In many ways good psychotherapy is like a successful remodel, frequently resulting in a stronger and more spacious sense of one's self, lovely new rooms, remarkable views and better access to the world outside (and in). The journey of self-discovery takes courage, but increasing one's awareness of old limitations and obstacles, and developing the ability to gently and carefully dismantle and rebuild where necessary is incredibly rewarding -- often beyond what we can imagine. I believe that it's a collaborative journey on which we embark, moving together towards creating a more fulfilling and rewarding life for you.

Do you often feel isolated or overwhelmed? Do you constantly feel hurried? Our lives can present us with situations that cause us to question everything we thought we knew. Sometimes painful issues from your past like sexual abuse or other painful childhood experiences resurface. During these times, it can feel hopeless: causing anxiety or depression. Balancing these concerns among our busy lives causes stress and affect relationships with partners and children. Sometimes disagreements about how to parent also adds extra strain. You are not alone.

When human beings experience trauma or severe life stressors, it is not uncommon for their lives to unravel. My great passion is bringing healing to people who have been through a traumatic/stressful experience. I help my clients, who include children, adults and families, to find healthy perceptions of themselves and strengthen their relationships so they can know themselves as peaceful, complete, whole and safe.

You’re tired of doing the same thing over and over and finding yourself in the same situation. You know that you’re smarter than this! You beat yourself up for making the same mistakes again and again. You know the answers --- love yourself, say no, check in with yourself --- but you can’t seem to translate that into day to day. You desperately want to find peace in your life, and in your relationships. You want to be fully yourself, to be whole and happy, to stand tall and walk in your strength. You know you’re good and kind and trustworthy and yet you still question yourself. Stop doubting yourself. Let's do this together!

I believe everyone deserves some time to sit down with a strong listener and/or problem solver about their life. The feedback that I receive is, that I empathize & mirror the key issues quickly and help you brainstorm. I then help you get at "reframing" the negative situations and help you motivate and prioritize what is needed to do to actually change. I can work well with mood issues, chaos, panic, addictions and all relationship issues. Every session you should walk away with substantial suggestions to help in different areas. I also work with work career issues, parenting, and women with breast cancer.

Are you experiencing any of the following in your marriage: trust issues, infidelity, feeling more like roommates than romantic partners, trauma/addiction issues, frequent arguments that never get resolved, or just feeling lonely in your relationship? When you try to talk things out, it just makes everything worse and you feel stuck. You know you need help but don't know what to do to get back those feelings of intimacy and closeness that you used to have together. Instead of growing apart, you are longing for help to get your relationship back on track so that you can restore love, passion and trust once again.

Sometimes having compassion for ourselves is much harder than extending compassion to others. It’s difficult when we are dealing with thoughts that convince us we are broken or stuck, or when we are facing issues that seem larger than us, issues that appear beyond what our personal power can handle. Along with these thoughts of uncertainty come feelings such as anxiety, sadness, shame, and grief, all of which we struggle to avoid. This can make living a valued existence appear difficult or impossible. Yet it is. You don’t need to go it alone. I can see that power within you, even if you are unable to see this in yourself.
