Hello, I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) and I am a Certified Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapist with EMDRIA. EMDR accesses the brain's innate ability to overcome the obstacles of past trauma. I understand how past traumas can lend to people feeling "stuck," and can contribute to a great many symptoms and problematic behaviors. I work with people from age five and up, to help overcome challenges, particularly those which are compounded by past traumas. I am ready to help you to learn new tools to overcome your current and past challenges and to move toward future peace and ease.

Intimidating as it may be, psychotherapy can bring hope and allow you an opportunity to gain a greater understanding of yourself, insight into what ails you, as well as unique ways of coping and healing. I see therapy as a collaborative process. Being able to share your story in a safe space, in the presence of another, is crucial for change. It will allow the two of us certain freedom to be curious about the impact of the known and unknown forces on your life and wellbeing. It will also help us explore ways in which change can be lasting and confronting ongoing challenges becomes possible.

Are you struggling right now, feeling stuck, overwhelmed? Feeling low, worrying, and just trying to balance and get by. Thinking this is not the life you imagined for yourself. Between work, family obligations, relationship challenges, it is hard to carve out time and energy for yourself. However, we all know we can't pour from an empty glass. Research by Dartmouth reports that in your 30's and 40's, are the most unhappy time in our lives. You are not alone. Let's find a way to help manage this time when we are juggling many roles, because surviving isn't enough, wouldn't it be much more fun to thrive?

When we are exposed to trauma at an early age, it can seriously impact how we feel about ourselves and our relationships with others. Trauma can also profoundly affect whether we feel this is a safe world and can contribute to depression, anxiety, and relational/familial issues. My practice is from a strengths-based, trauma-informed perspective with a non-judgmental framework. I aim to understand clients’ internal responses and to provide more options for emotional regulation and problem-solving.

My work relies on evidence-based treatments rooted in cognitive-behavioral and psychodynamic therapies including DBT, interpersonal therapy, and family systems. I work well in building a safe and trusting space in therapy, especially for clients who have complex histories.

Therapy often helps when both the client and therapist put their time and effort into the process. Whether you are bringing a specific issue or you just need an open, non-judgmental space in which to be heard, I’d like to help. To start I’ll find out what you want out of therapy, what’s worked in the past, and what hasn’t. I’ll talk honestly about a timeline and encourage you to ask questions, voice any concerns, clarify your expectations and offer me feedback.

Sometimes it takes the gentle mirroring of another person to help see what is no longer working in our lives. Habits formed to survive difficult childhoods may be wrecking havoc. Communication styles may be sabotaging love. We may feel overwhelmed in parenting, or facing a big life transition. I work closely with my clients to increase communication skills and develop greater personal awareness. I teach nervous system regulation in order to stay calm and effective during conflict, difficult conversations, and life transitions. From therapy you’ll learn to operate from wholeness and authenticity, and gain acceptance for self/others.

While some individuals enter therapy with acute distress and specific problems that need to be addressed; others have a more vague feeling of discontent. In either case, the self-exploration of analytic work is meant to expand the way one thinks and feels. Learning to think creatively is one way to describe the goal of psychoanalytic psychotherapy. WIth guidance, an individual learns to hold the tension of multiple perspectives/emotions resulting in a flexibility of thinking that involves both analytic and imaginative parts of the mind. This "full thinking" can be applied to personal life issues, relationships and creative pursuits.
