I've been in private practice for several years and in the field for over 20 years, working with adults, adolescents and children who have had relational issues, depression, anxiety and a number of other mental health issues. I believe most of us go through periods in our lives when things get to be too much and our functioning is affected. I help my clients to determine what the root issues are and to address them as effectively as possible by working with their strengths in order to increase insight and make behavioral changes that will alleviate the problems.

Girl, you’re exhausted. Looking at the clock, you see the day is almost over, and your to-do list is longer now than it was this morning. There are simply not enough hours in the day to get everything done. You’re drowning as each new task threatens to drag you under and leave you gasping for air. Just when you’re about to take a moment for yourself, someone asks you for help, and your guilt won’t allow you to say “no.” You haven’t been able to take time for yourself in years. Lately, your existence seems to belong to everyone but you. You don’t even remember the dreams and goals you once had. There must be more to life than this.

Life demands so much from us on a daily basis. Our bosses want more of our time, our partners are slow to show love but quick to start an argument, and our families always seem to ask for more. Therapy is your space to escape from these demands, to take a breath and realign with who you truly are. I am passionate about helping clients illuminate ways they may enhance their relationships, embrace their true self, and gain the self-confidence needed to thrive in life. For those who utilize psychedelic medicine to facilitate healing, we can explore integration and prep work together.

I enjoy working with the client's present day experience while bringing in relevant aspects of one's personal history. I work collaboratively with my clients on re-creating a life of healing and fullness. Therapy might mean working through depression and anxiety, significant events in the past, exploring spiritual meanings, all the while exploring the here-and-now. Having had extensive international experiences, I also actively engage in an intercultural frame and approach in therapy, exploring cultural values and intergenerational issues. Wellness is actively defined by the forces and people that has shaped and continues to shape us.

Are you going through the motions, lacking passion, and being shaped by others' expectations? Have you lost touch with your true self?

Therapy with me is like a deep conversation with a friend.

We are all looking to obtain clarity and a sense of happiness and peace. Everyone is working from their experiences, feelings and views on life, making the best decisions based upon what they know to be true. Life can be challenging and at times confusing. Not only could we benefit from obtaining some support through that journey, but heightening our own awareness to ourselves and raising our consciousness to a healthier state of mind. I’m a believer that we all need a sense of purpose, fulfillment and connectivity. I welcome you in your decision to seek that for yourself.

Throughout our life journey we face many challenges. Sometimes we develop old wounds from the past that do not let us live the life we deserve. Those old wounds we call traumatic events. Traumatic events can develop from our childhood experiences, past relationships, employment, near death experiences or the death of a loved one. Traumatic events can continue to affect us in our daily life from experiencing nightmares to repeatedly viewing an unsettling image in our mind.

Along the journey of life we encounter many challenges, transitions, and unexpected circumstances. Sometimes we handle these bumps and detours with ease and grace, and others we experience overwhelming sadness, pain, loss, and anger. Other times we feel stuck and dissatisfied, but too crippled by fear to move forward. It is my belief that hidden among these dark and difficult times, lie beautiful gifts of insight and possibility. Psychotherapy is a tool that can assist you in confronting the discomfort to open the door to a lifetime of satisfaction and joy.
