My approach to therapy is more than just process-based. I enjoy providing psychoeducation on where our behaviors come from and why our brains tell us to focus on specific thoughts. I love everything about therapy. I feel it's so important to have a space where difficult, frustrating or new life circumstances can be discussed and explored. making space for our emotions teaches us great skills, including effective communication, connection, and resilience. I want to work with you on connecting to what's important in your life and making meaningful changes, no matter how small they may seem.

The decision to begin therapy is not simple and often comes at a particularly challenging time in your life. I know how difficult it can be to reach out during these times and my goal is to respond with curiosity, open-mindedness, and empathy. I believe that lasting change can come from exploring and ultimately freeing ourselves from the underlying causes of current symptoms. I want to work together with you to find ways to gain insight and relief. I work in an open and transparent manner, to help answer any questions or concerns you have along the way.

Therapy provides such a rich opportunity for growth and learning, helping persons to recover from the aftermaths of trauma, abuse and loss, meet the hardships of their lives and thrive. In times like this, with so much anxiety about our collective welfare, it can be an invaluable lifeline. In response to the Coronavirus, also known as COVID-19, we are now offering teletherapy (therapy by phone and online by video) for all our clients, whether new or established. Also called telehealth or telebehavioral health, teletherapy can provide vital care and support to individuals, couples and families.

Children and teens are more aware of their own internal states and the world around them than ever before, while the family unit takes on more stress. This combination can create anxiety, depression, acting out behaviors, confusion, and educational struggles for many. Through a strength-based perspective I focus on communication, relationships, boundaries, and self-care. I work with youth (and families) to explore their patterns of interactions with others and encourage self-awareness and growth in these areas. Developing a relationship with a child or teen takes time and care, both of which I have done for nearly twenty years.

People are often hesitant to try therapy because they feel it won't work or believe they should be able to handle difficult things on their own. If you're willing to try personal trainers, babysitters, house cleaners, and other services to better your life, doesn't your emotional happiness or the happiness of your family deserve the same focus? I believe that it absolutely does.

Do you struggles with your relationship? Do you want a more intimate connection? I believe we are driven to grow and we choose our partner to help us grow. Going through conflicts and resolving them is what help us to know ourselves and our loved one better. The last 11 years, in a safe, trusting, and warm environment, I successfully helped couples, as well as individual, to learn from these conflicts and help them to build more harmonious relationship and better life.

Welcome to my practice. Some folks I work with have clearly defined concerns they bring in, such as depression or anxiety, relationship issues, grief, or persistent somatic pains that may have a psychological component. Others have just a vague feeling that something isn’t right, or may wonder if life could feel any better than it always has.

You feel isolated, misunderstood...lonely. You’ve been told you’re “too much,” “too sensitive,” or “intense.” You feel frozen in profound suffering. You feel that no one has seen the real you and have a sense that there are parts of yourself that maybe you haven’t seen. Hiding yourself has become unbearable, but you don’t know where to start or who to go to for help making sense of your complex inner world and experiences. We can be deeply wounded in relationships, past and current, but it is also in relationships that we find healing.

Often we have so many judgments and intense feelings about food and our bodies that it can be difficult to see clearly. I offer support, guidance, and clarity. In addition to being a therapist I have 20 years of experience as an eating disorder dietitian. I work with individuals on a range of issues including struggles with food and body image, unlearning diet culture, embracing health at every size, and healing from eating disorders, anxiety and depression. My goal is to foster an atmosphere of comfort and safety, so we can explore your inner landscape with kindness and curiosity, so you can live with more ease, choice and joy.

My work is to help clients become the people they long to be. I sees the challenges we face not as signs of what is wrong with us, but as the result of what our experiences have wrongly taught us to believe about ourselves. Almost everyone seeking therapy is hurting in some way: we feel depressed, anxious, angry, or we are having relationship problems. We may be feeling guilt or shame. But when we talk openly about these problems, we can begin to change. We learn how these problems came about, but more importantly, how we resolve them.

Through counseling, I support families to identify patterns in behavior and communication. Our work together will be collaborative and strengths-based. It will encourage shifts in the family to promote healthy expression of emotions and communication to improve relationships. I use a directive style of communication and an active and integrative approach with children and adolescents. I encourage parents, caregivers and other family members to be involved in the therapeutic process.

My role as a psychotherapist is to help clients acknowledge and harness their innate strengths, to attain and sustain the well-being they are searching for. I am passionate about gently questioning unspoken norms and expectations, whether learned from family or society, that can limit our ability to connect with our most authentic selves. I empower clients to take supported risks, guiding the therapy with empathy, honesty, humor, and a belief in the transformative power of relationships.

My framework as a psychotherapist is inspired by black feminist sci-fi writer, Octavia E. Butler who saw the possibility of many more worlds than just our own. I believe that transformative internal healing is critical to envisioning and building these worlds without the presence of imperialism, white supremacy, capitalism and cishet-patriarchy. The tools I use to support the exploration of individual, interpersonal and intergenerational trauma are shaped by abolition that rejects punitive and scarcity mindsets and disability justice which strives to value every body.
