I work with individuals, teens, and couples throughout a variety of settings including working with high-risk populations treating various forms of trauma and mood disorders.
Everyone seeks the feeling of being understood and accepted, but sometimes we become comfortable with being unhappy. As a therapist, my goal is to provide empathy, support, safety, and cultural sensitivity. I will assist in helping you work through various issues to achieve a more productive approach to the way you think, make decisions, and relate to others. I believe that therapy is a collaborative process and I strive to create an environment that allows for authenticity, support, and trust between us.

I specialize in treating trauma , dissociative disorders, depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety, OCD, schizophrenia, and chemical dependency.
Life has become a myriad of stress and strain for many people and my goal is to help clients gain a sense of health and well-being. In individual therapy I utilize a psychodynamic approach in which work with clients unfold as a mutual, collaborative process occurring in an atmosphere of safety and respect. I view a clients' problem(s) in a framework that places an emphasis on how their past emotional and interpersonal experiences are affecting the way they are today. I believe that a client's unconscious can influence their inner experience (e.g., thoughts and feelings).

I am trauma informed and work from a relational focus.
Many of us are shaped by our experiences and aren't fully aware of the effects these experiences have in our everyday lives and relationships. We question our feelings, our thoughts and our reactions. But, they all tell a story. My approach to treatment is attachment-based and client-centered. The emphasis is placed on exploring your values, experiences and what is important to you. Sometimes speaking to family and friends just isn't enough. I can help guide you through the process of knowing yourself and being able to understand, accept and express your emotions.

Anxiety and depression are two of the most common concerns around- if these kinds of things are affecting your ability to meet your personal goals or simply enjoy your life, you're not alone. I specialize in "treatments that work"- scientifically supported therapies for anxiety, depression, and related difficulties, including worry, panic, sleep problems, and difficulties with concentration and decision-making. In therapy, my clients work to develop or increase coping skills they can use long after treatment ends.

Parenting can create many moments of frustration and overwhelm! I recognize that during this pandemic, parents have had to transform into roles such as teacher, cook, caretaker, worker, etc. If during this difficult time you are noticing big emotions from your child and you are struggling to maintain the emotional energy to help your child or keep yourself calm during distressful moments, parent support and/or child therapy might help! I provide concrete parenting tools and emotional regulation skills for you and your child to foster connection and resiliency.

Feeling weighed down and responsible for how everyone else around you feels is as exhausting as it is frustrating. You’re tired of the emotional burden of saying “yes” when you really mean “no” & of contorting yourself in whatever way will make others feel most comfortable. Now as you step into a new phase of life as a parent, you worry about setting boundaries with intrusive family members. Your stomach twists into knots and your chest tightens thinking about being bulldozed once again by other’s opinions of your choices. Even worse, you could be seen as "the bad guy" and as being "selfish" for speaking up for what you really need.

We have all envisioned some version of our ideal selves. Often times past hurts or traumas can affect our lives so that we act out from a place of brokenness rather than healing and compassion. The dissonance our present selves and who we aspire to be can lead to frustration, depression, anxiety, and despair. If you are feeling stagnant and looking for ways to shift out of unhealthy self-defeating patterns, you have come to the right place.
