As a collaborative practitioner, I work closely with clients to look empathically at their experiences to find meaning while utilizing humanistic, psychodynamic and experiential techniques to change the emotional triggers of trauma or decisions we make about ourselves. Therapy is an interactive and dynamic process, affecting the way a person views him or herself. Everything we do makes perfect sense and to change what we do requires understanding why it makes sense. I work in a way that honors all parts of self. I am a Christian in the Catholic tradition and honor all religious and spiritual journeys.

Orientation informed by psychodynamic , Gestalt, attachment, relational, and CBT.
I see therapy a kind of "care-filled" container to hold and shape whatever process is needed to move towards the change you seek. Think of me as a compassionate and curious traveling companion for this leg of your journey. We all have natural drives to adapt, learn, and grow, but sometimes we get stuck and lose touch. I intend our therapy to be a safe AND brave space where we show up first, for YOU, so you can re-balance yourself in your relationships and in your life.

I’m a psychotherapist who works best helping goal-oriented, high-functioning clients get results through deep, exploratory work while providing tools and insights that bring about change. I create a safe, open space where clients can fully explore their inner world and how it influences their actions and behavior, especially in parts where they feel stuck. It is my goal to help clients be fully aware of their internal processes in order to create authentic and meaningful lives.

Once we get caught in the middle of some kind of struggle, it can be difficult to find the way out. The strategies that we once used to cope don't work anymore, and we need a little help learning a new way. That's exactly what I'm here for. I firmly believe that no one should have to suffer alone, and I value the opportunity to walk with people through their challenges. What's even better is seeing people get to the other side of their pain, having gained a greater sense of empowerment during the journey.

Good therapy is based more on the unique relationship between clinician and client more than a specific technique or model practiced. Research studies support this statement. I work with people to help them solve their emotional conflicts, improve their communication and resolve trauma. I am a compassionate, empathic, caring professional who provides a secure and safe environment for you to explore your feelings, thoughts, and behaviors. Whether you are in crisis, or want to focus on personal growth, I can help you uncover and discover what is most important to you and improve the quality of your life.

I may be a psychotherapist, but I’m also a person in the world and not that different from you. I have a family and have been a lifelong learner. I grew up in a large, extended family who were working class. My family is diverse - different ethnicities, religious backgrounds, class levels, disabilities, educational levels, gender/sexualities, ages, geographical origin. As a person, I have had a few struggles and a few triumphs. I try to learn from life, my mistakes, other people, and my professional/academic experiences. I like to think that all these experiences have made me a better person and a better psychotherapist.

My style as a therapist is both affirmative and challenging. I seek to support and understand you so that we may together identify the obstacles that keep you from living a more fulfilling and creative life. Therapy often involves the following processes: Changing reactive patterns of behavior, like compulsive eating or the destructive use of anger. Learning about your "filters," which are habitual ways of interpreting life events that stem from your unique conditioning. Developing skills to modulate uncomfortable feelings, such as anxiety or sadness. Strengthening your core sense of self and values.
