I have over 12 years experience working with adults, children, and adolescents experiencing relationship problems, anxiety and mood concerns, emotional and/or behavioral troubles, trauma and loss, and difficulties with burnout and the compassion fatigue of caring for loved ones with these issues. If you are an adult attempting to work through such difficulties in your life, the partner of someone having these problems, or if you are a parent seeking help for your child, I would welcome a chance to talk with you about how I may help.

As a psychotherapist, I feel it’s an honor to be a witness and facilitator to client transformation, resilience, and growth. I believe my perceptiveness, compassion, and holding of a nonjudgmental space allow discovery and observation of patterns that may no longer be helpful. I see my work through a social justice perspective and understand oppression itself as a form of stress and trauma. As a mixed-race, multicultural woman, I honor experiences of being at different intersections of identity. I can relate to experiences of simultaneously belonging and not belonging in different spaces.

Whether you're new to psychotherapy or experienced, it can be difficult both to accept that help is needed, or to clarify exactly what you're looking for in a provider when the problems you or a loved one are facing feel confusing. At this juncture, a good first step might be to select a few potential providers from this list and then set up initial consultations with them to clarify needs and assess compatibility.

I understand that choosing a therapist can be an intimidating and awkward process. I think personal referrals are usually the best but sometimes not possible. After thirty years of working as a therapist, I feel I've met and worked with all kinds of patients and helped many of them to change- feel differently about themselves, their relationships and their work. I see individuals, couples and women with new babies.

Life is harder than expected at times. Transitions, loss, trauma, persistent anxiety or depression, or a feeling that things will never change are just a few examples of the ways in which people can feel less hopeful about their lives. Psychotherapy is a tool that can alleviate the stressors of everyday life, improve one's sense of well being and connection with others and enhance one's self understanding. Over time it can also lead to a greater sense of competency and satisfaction in the world.

Feelings may become like overwhelming floods of dread, sorrow or numbness, thinking becomes confused, panicky, and self-critical, joy is lost. Together we can make good use of your strengths, symptoms and external challenges. Through exploring and deepening our understanding and trust in your own inner world, dignity and liveliness may be restored even under the most challenging or enduring of circumstances, illnesses or problems.

My practice focuses on individual therapy for adults with anxiety and stress-related issues. Over the past year, many people have experienced an increase in stress that has overwhelmed their usual ways of coping. This includes stress related to interpersonal relationships, work or home life, or worsening of previously managed anxiety. If this resonates for you, my goal for you in therapy is to empower you with a better understanding of yourself, provide you with a new skill set to manage stress, and enable you to live a life you value.

I work primarily with people who are dealing with anxiety or depression and my primary model of treatment is Cognitive Behavioral therapy (CBT). I believe that our difficulties are more often as result of how we are thinking about our problems rather than the problems themselves. CBT provides skills and tools for coping with your thoughts as well as the difficult emotions that come along with your thinking. CBT can also be helpful for procrastination or for being withdrawn. My professional work can be characterized as being active, empathetic, compassionate, energizing and motivational.

Life guarantees all of us ups and downs- but in our highly individualistic culture, it is common to believe that one ought to be able to handle their own difficulties. In reality, stressful life events,transitions and challenges can become much more manageable with consistent support. Through active listening and reflection,I assist clients in accessing their own intuition about what makes their life feel satisfying. Therapy involves a growing self awareness that often uncovers outdated beliefs and patterns. I truly enjoy guiding clients through this discovery process.This often involves a look at how culture and upbringing influence behavior.

While all people experience challenges throughout life, we each suffer in different ways and, as a result, develop a unique style of dealing with stress. During difficult times, ways of coping that once worked often lose their effectiveness. Even after identifying a problem or unhealthy pattern, it may be difficult to resolve the issue without the necessary support. Therapy often involves an increased curiosity toward one's emotional experience, and over time, awareness of how feelings relate to behavior. This allows for a deeper understanding of who we are and can help us approach problems and conflicts in healthier ways.
