I’m a therapist, cancer survivor, and former tech industry executive. My practice focuses on adults, couples, and teens. In working with me, you’ll experience a mix of warmth, depth, challenge, and, most of all, dedication to the healing and growth you're seeking. My integrative approach balances relational psychodynamic therapy, solution focus, somatics (Mind-body), and mindfulness . Our work together might include demystifying difficult emotions, processing trauma, improving self-esteem, coping with change, strengthening relationships, increasing motivation, or exploring the many layers of health challenges.

Meditation, yoga and mindfulness have been roads to joy and equanimity for me.
Hello! I provide support to women, young adults, mothers (of all ages and stages), parents, families, and kiddos. In my work with adults I utilize a strengths based approach, first identifying the strengths and superpowers (maybe unrecognized or forgotten) that you already possess. We will work together to connect you to your intuitive voice and build a deeper connection to yourself. I am warm, caring, straightforward and would love to collaborate with you to create positive change in your life.

I often use mindfulness and embodiment exercises for nervous system regulation, to reduce anxiety and stress, and facilitate inner safety, stability, and peace.
Healing is an ever-evolving process, as is the experience and creation of your life. Whether you are struggling with relationship challenges, a sense of self, feeling lost, empty, or overwhelmed, you are not alone. I provide a warm, safe, and non-judgmental space to gently explore the shadows so that you may find your light and come home to yourself. Through therapy, you will gain greater insight and awareness of yourself and your surroundings, offering you the support, freedom, and ability to alleviate suffering and authentically lead your life. I believe you are meant to thrive, not just survive.

Creating a space for mindfulness brings you back to the best version of yourself.
Hearing your children playing in the next room, you jump off the couch to join them. As soon as your feet hit the floor, you feel crushed by sharp, unrelenting pain. It’s impossible to walk across the room, shower, or fix food without paying the price the next day – and needing another injection because the pain is ten times worse. Chronic pain sucks! You’ve tried every treatment your doctor recommended, but the medical system has failed you in so many ways. The worries are becoming more extreme for you and your family. You cry in your bedroom closet because you don't want your children to see you feeling hopeless.

I employ mindfulness techniques to help focus you on your present experience which gives us a wealth of information to learn and grow from.
In a world where we can often feel disconnected, detached and cutoff from ourselves and others, therapy is a place where we can start to put the pieces back together to start feeling WHOLE again. I have a gentle yet direct approach and I offer a supportive environment where your strengths and wisdom are acknowledged. I gently challenge you by offering honest and clear feedback while respecting where you are at and what you need. My approach is collaborative as we work together as a team to help foster growth and health.

I use a Psychodynamic and Mindfulness approach to achieve self-compassion/understanding of one's needs by considering both conscious and unconscious levels.
You deserve to feel seen and live a life of authenticity without the stress and anxiety of being afraid to show others who you are or who you want to be. So often we find ourselves holding back our needs to ensure the needs of others are being met but this pattern leaves many of us feeling lonely and isolated in our relationships. Therapy can be a way to help you achieve the authenticity you are seeking through processing thoughts and feelings that might be getting in your way of showing up for yourself.

For individual sessions, I combine hypnosis, mindfulness , and breathing techniques.
I support families, couples, and individuals. Whatever the problem, challenge, trauma or pain, the power to change exists within you and your family. I believe that an effective therapist's job is to support a "shift," not to create it for you. Together, we can make progress toward your goals and desires. I am also trained and certified in hypnotherapy.

Highly skilled and very caring, I help individuals & couples work through difficult feelings, develop new perspectives, learn mindfulness and access their strengths.
My clients are lovely people going through difficult things. Whether you are going through a break-up, loss, life transition or adjusting to the post-pandemic world, it can be a struggle to find your footing on your own. I have found that, in order to move forward with an empowered and clear mind, it is helpful to integrate the recent past into an evolving narrative that feels right for you. I offer a kind, nonjudgmental space where you can feel heard and find tools to quiet the noise, develop new perspectives and connect to your unique voice and path to self-fulfillment.

Whether deeply hurting or just looking to “up your game” in life, I help you to discover how you can “lose your temper” not just with anger but with any feelings. I help you learn to better regulate your emotions. All feelings have good purposes and messages if we can but learn to notice and respond to them early. With mindfulness techniques I help you to center in your feelings in a true happiness and love which helps you to navigate life with InSpired Focus.

I use a two-prong approach that includes "talk therapy" and mindfulness activities.
People want to be understood and not judged. People desire to have healthy interpersonal relationships, as well as a healthy self-image. Life circumstances sometimes impede our inner visions and leave us feeling stuck. By using EMDR and Cognitive Behavioral therapy, you can expect to experience improvement in the various domains of your life. The key is to utilize the strategies provided. Change takes alot of hard work, a vision and a support system. I can support you with therapeutic techniques that will help to change your thoughts, thus changing your life! I hope to hear from you soon.

I take an integrative approach to therapeutic work, utilizing evidenced-based treatments such as CBT, mindfulness , and insight-oriented psychotherapy.
Sometimes we can feel stuck. Maybe you find yourself repeating habits that are hurting you and/or others but you can't seem to stop the cycle. Perhaps you have had a painful experience that you are having difficulty healing from. It may be that you are so anxious or overwhelmed with negative feelings, it feels hard to enjoy life and move forward in a meaningful way. Or possibly, it's just that you can't seem to shake that critical voice inside that says you aren't good enough.

Utilizing techniques from Cognitive-Behavioral, Mindfulness , and Interpersonal therapies, we will work together to uncover what obstacles are getting in the way of experiencing greater satisfaction in your relationship with yourself and others.
What you resist, persists....This is one of life's biggest lessons: learning how to coexist with and manage emotions rather than fight or run away from them. Any attempt at avoiding the less desirable emotions via alcohol, drugs, food, or sex will be met with more problems (addiction). So what if you did the opposite? What if you allowed yourself to feel, to fully sit with the pain and discomfort? What might happen? A new beginning. It would mean moving forward with an understanding that all emotions are fleeting, and that you've finally learned to embrace what is.

I work with a focus on the mindbody connection through ​Brainspotting, ​Integrative Body Psychotherapy, and Mindfulness . By integrating the body, mind, and spirit in the process, my clients are able to find a connection to the origin of the problem. They are also able to find solutions. Solutions that are effective and more permanent. This by changing neuro-pathways leading to change in thought patterns, behaviors & emotions.​ My goal is to support you in transforming and healing and to be able to empower and inspire you to make use of what you have been through, allowing your experiences to become your strengths.

Mindfulness-Based (MBCT) Therapists
For clients with chronic pain, hypertension, heart disease, cancer, and other health issues such as anxiety and depression, mindfulness-based cognitive therapy, or MBCT, is a two-part therapy that aims to reduce stress, manage pain, and embrace the freedom to respond to situations by choice. MCBT blends two disciplines--cognitive therapy and mindfulness. Mindfulness helps by reflecting on moments and thoughts without passing judgment. MBCT clients pay close attention to their feelings to reach an objective mindset, thus viewing and combating life's unpleasant occurrences.
