My passion is working with those who keenly feel and live with the pain of not being "enough," or of being defective in some way. There's a variety of reasons that people come to suffer in this way, including the impact of childhood experiences, discrimination, and living within systems that encourage disconnection from ourselves and others. My approach is to work collaboratively to bring light and healing to hidden wounds. Far from being "too much to handle," learning to care for these tender parts is the path towards greater freedom, connection, and possibility.

I tend to see individual adults and couples in my practice who want to develop more self awareness, insight, and understanding as to why they are facing the difficulties or challenges which bring them into work with me. My hope is to help them see where their early childhood experiences impact and affect their functioning as adults. One goal for them is to become more flexible in their thinking and behavior so that they can enjoy their lives more fully. I see my role as an assistant to them in this process, trusting them, their thinking and ability to change.

Wouldn't it be nice to become more clear about how you want to live your life? The dynamic process of patient and therapist working together so that troubling thoughts and feelings, unrealized dreams and hidden fears can emerge in the therapy session strengthens the ability to grow in intimate relationships. Working with the concept of how individuals balance both the need for autonomy and the need for connection, I will help you sort out how to emotionally and physically love without losing yourself.

Life can be complicated and sometimes we need a little help. Therapy provides a safe space and the support you need to navigate the challenges and stress you are experiencing. As we work together, you will learn strategies to help you cope and feel better.
Sometimes life’s events can be overwhelming, making everyday activities and incidents even more difficult to handle. These experiences can lead to sadness, anxiety, insecurity, feelings of isolation, and even an immense feeling of loss or being lost. It is in these moments that having a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space to talk to someone can be the most helpful. As a therapist, I provide a space where we can work collaboratively to reflect and gain insight on these cycles, where they come from and how they impact our choices and behaviors to make healthy and sustainable changes in our lives.

Are you or loved ones facing challenges you want to work through in safety and confidence? Reacting to life events with worry or sadness? Ready for a new beginning? For better or worse, our experience is shaped by expectations and habits that are maintained by loyalty to important relationships, and by cycles of confirming experience. They affect our happiness, our relationships and the success of our endeavors. Therapy can help. In a safe empathic relationship, unhelpful expectations and habits can be retired, and happier habits of relating to life and others can be learned, chosen and implemented.

Do you find yourself asking “Should I be worried about this?” in regards with your child? Are you struggling to determine whether your child’s behavior is “normal”, a phase, or something that needs additional support? Is your adolescent’s inability to put his emotional experiences into words resulting in him communicating his inner turmoil through actions (i.e.,arguing, acting out, distancing from you, disengaging with academic responsibilities, etc.). I have a deep passion for working with youth and parents and have had the pleasure of working with children, adolescents, parents, and families from diverse cultural backgrounds and with various stressors since 2006.
People who struggle with eating disorders often feel alone, ashamed and out of control. Even experienced healthcare providers can unintentionally minimize, overlook or invalidate the suffering eating disorders inflict on the health and wellbeing of those seeking help. Sufferers might begin to believe they do not deserve care, or that they are not “sick enough” to be taken seriously. As a result, far too many people stop reaching out. Eating disorders affect people of all shapes, sizes, genders, ages, races and nationalities. Therefore, treatment needs to be flexible and adaptive to meet the needs of a diverse population.
Openings available. Life experiences shape who we are and influence how we see the world and people around us.

Are you sick and tired of constantly thinking about food and your body? Do you look in the mirror and hate what you see? Struggling with an eating disorder is exhausting. I can help. You don't have to continue to feel so trapped.
