As a psychotherapist, I help individuals, by fostering a safe and engaging environment, to express their feelings and think about their experiences. I support individuals in the context of the therapeutic relationship to better understand themselves and the difficulties they are having. I help clients identify and ascribe meaning to the things that are not in their awareness. In psychotherapy, individuals can learn to understand and manage their internal obstacles that have led to difficulties in their mood, behavior, self-esteem, jobs and relationships.

You want better relationships, with your partner, your family, at work and with yourself. You’re at the point where all of the boxes are checked, but you’re still not feeling happy or fulfilled. You struggle with guilt for wanting more, but know deep down that there's something holding you back. If you’re a couple, you want deeper intimacy and connection, to resolve recurring disagreements, or support when facing key milestones such as moving in together or getting engaged. You’re in the right place. I specialize in attachment-based therapy for those wanting to improve their relationships, beginning with themselves.

Many of us possess a feeling that there is a way to live better and to feel better. It's this feeling that drives the work of therapy and stems from an essential experience of feeling healthy, safe, and loved. Being human, by nature, is a perilous journey where we often get lost and hurt and find ourselves in an experience of emotional and physical pain. Coming to therapy means committing to a relationship with a therapist that is in service of finding your truth and a way to feel better.

Talking to someone who understands the pain you feel-depression, anxiety, or feeling stuck-can relieve inner distress and give you a new perspective on your life. I am empathic and experienced at providing a safe setting where we can explore what is causing you to feel anxious, distressed or unfulfilled. In therapy we work together to clarify those emotions that have kept you from moving forward in your life. You will find new ways to see yourself and others, which leads to more meaningful relationships and a more fulfilling life.

I believe that every one of us has the potential of establishing a fuller and more joyous relationship with others and the world. As we work to bring our own unique voice into our lives, we frequently struggle against our childhood conditioning and the culture within which we find ourselves. Therapy as I see and practice it, is a process by which people, reconnect with their deepest yearnings and are helped to become more of whom they were meant to be so they may fulfill their truest destiny.

Are you exploring your sexuality or gender and need support? Are you healing from sexual assault or intimate partner violence and don't know how to talk about it? Are you in the kink and/or poly community and need nonjudgmental support? I get it. It can be scary to look for a therapist when your experiences are outside "the norm." I empower my clients to become more self-aware and to better understand and process their unique experiences in a collaborative, self-affirming environment.

I believe that the therapy process is a practice of paying attention to what is actually happening - it sounds simple, but this is actually a deeply profound and challenging stance to maintain towards life. The work we do in therapy involves bringing elements of our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, how we relate to ourselves and to others, and how we move through the world, from the darkness of the unconscious into the light of consciousness where we can take a look at them. We do not have to struggle and toil in order to implement change in our lives.

There are many reasons to begin therapy. No issue is too small or unworthy of consideration and care. Sometimes the stated reasons for seeking therapy are beacons for something deeper, which may or may not be related to the present problem. Together, we can focus on alleviating distress in the short term while beginning the more in-depth process of addressing issues at their core. In this process, many of the people I work with discover what is most important to them, what can be changed, and what can be actualized within their relationships and career.

I am an experienced clinician and gauge our work by the progress you are making towards your treatment goals. I have supervised and trained clinicians in treatment settings ranging from the counselor's office to acute mental health facilities. I also have a professional background in the arts and work with self defined meaning, identity and creative processes. Symptoms are quite manageable, but often get in the way of the quality of life if left untreated. I provide a safe and dynamic space in which we can effectively together target your goals. My work specifically is in Lacanalysis and I am in ongoing formation as such.

I compassionately welcome individuals who feel silenced, disconnected from loved ones, overwhelmed, lost, or that they "don't belong," as well as people who have experienced bullying, emotional or physical abuse, or struggle with negative body image and/or a harsh inner critic.
