Welcome! I love to help couples to reach their highest levels of trust, intimacy and safety together to create the relationship they have always wanted. I take a trauma focused approach, as these traumas and attachment issues can affect relationship dynamics and communication. I work with couples practicing BDSM/kink and also specialize in neurodiversity (ADHD and autism) and mixed neurotype couples. My practice works with LGBTQIA+ couples and polyamorous couples. I am part of both of these communities which makes for a safe and inclusive space.

My experience working with individuals and families includes supporting those who struggle with depression, anxiety, PTSD, Suicidal thoughts, and self injurious behaviors using EMDR, Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), Trauma Focused CBT (TF-CBT), CBT, Motivational Interviewing (MI), and mindfulness skills.
Many struggle with not feeling connected to others or feeling like we can be ourselves. This comes from our challenges growing up, past relationships, and current experiences. Working with youth and young adults is rewarding as they are figuring out who they want to be in life. As we grow and start to face life’s difficulties, we face tough decisions from college, relationships, and employment. These are the years that are paving the way to the rest of their lives. My goal is to build a strong foundation and the skills to face those life challenges confidently.

I have intensive training in Gestalt Therapy, Ericksonian Clinical Hypnosis, Play Therapy, EMDR, Lifespan Integration, and Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavior Therapy.
After 30 years of practice, I remain excited about new clients, new treatment approaches, and the joy of a client leaving my office with a smile and thank-you. I believe in being in the moment, being present, creating true and authentic contact, and facilitating opportunities for my clients to develop deeper understandings and practical skills. I work with a wide range of human problems, and enjoy the diversity that my practice has deliberately maintained. I work in an eclectic manner. I think meditation, laughter and play, are great for what ails us.

I currently only offer online and in-home therapy. When we are in the midst of crisis we can question our abilities to overcome. Like quicksand, these self-defeating thoughts pull us even deeper into despair and we may become seduced by seclusion. Instead, I believe we should strive to accept our struggles as the catalysts that can bring us into closer connection with others and thus be more empowered to overcome. My practice of therapy involves helping people realize that to struggle is not unique and that connections with others during those times can be the difference between surrendering to weakness and reclaiming your strength.

It’s tough when you or your relationship feel broken. I’m here to collaborate with you and figure out how to connect those pieces back together so that you feel stronger. It is natural to start questioning yourself and not feel accepted. You may start getting stressed, feeling frustrated, unhappy, and blame yourself/others because there are needs that do not feel met. There can be nagging worries you may have that are preventing you from living your full life. And if we allow ourselves to dig deeper, you may feel invisible, a burden or that maybe you don't deserve better...

I tend to think of therapy as tupperware, it’s the container where we can unload what is weighing us down. Our personal backgrounds; ethnicity, race, gender, sexuality, socioeconomic status, religion, (dis)abilities, to name a few, are integral to who we are. These aspects can have a deep impact on the way we view, think of, the world and experience mental health. This is why a multicultural approach lays the foundation for my work with clients. Navigating healing while at the same time still existing within systemic oppression, marginalization, and erasure/assimilation is not easy. This is a safe container to do so.

Relationships are incredibly complicated, and relationship issues can have profound impact on your quality of life. Anxiety and depression may be the result of unhealthy relationship dynamics, or may be caused by typical stressors such as financial problems or disagreements about raising children. If you are having difficulties in your current relationship, or if you are trying to understand past relationship struggles, I am qualified to help you. I work with couples and individuals engaging in high conflict, affairs, issues of past trauma, parenting, depression, anxiety, substance addiction, divorce, or criminal concerns.

Trauma can fracture who you are as a person. It can make you feel unlike yourself, distant from others, changed forever. This does not have to be permanent. I can help you cope and heal from sexual and relationship trauma. Together, we can build resilience, access your strengths, and free you from your past. Learning to understand your trauma, manage symptoms, change unhealthy relationship patterns, and increase self-esteem can help you cultivate the life and meaningful relationships that you want. Most of my clients have experienced rape, sexual assault, childhood abuse, systemic oppression, and/or violence from a partner.

I understand that life happens to all of us. You can feel overwhelmed by unexpected situations, unfortunate losses and unendurable psychological pains. Exposure to high levels of prolonged stress can lead to feelings of hopelessness and helplessness. Intense anxiety or panic attacks and social isolation are common experiences. Seeking help means that you are ready to work and bring your life into a healthier balance. Through self-acceptance and care, you can gain more tools to improve your lifestyle and relationships. By listening attentively with non-judgmental empathy, I provide ongoing support with therapeutic insight and expertise in a confidential setting.

I have a deep understanding of why we end up suffering or are stuck and unable to get to that state of well-being we all deserve and are capable of achieving. Sometimes one just needs a little help from an expert. At a minimum, my aim is that you leave having more insight into what the problem is and how to resolve it. We can do the rest together or you can try on your own. I am confident that you will not regret the experience.
