Are you tired of being in failed relationships? You have no problem attracting a partner but keeping them is a different story. Are you a man that feels like it’s hard to get women to understand you? Are you a woman that has gained a lot of success professionally but struggle with finding a partner that you are able to connect with? Perhaps people question if you even want or need a partner because of your professional success. I help men become the man they have always desired. I help women connect to their feminine energy.

No human being gets through this life without a certain amount of conflict. The need to solve problems and manage distress is complicated by our fast paced world with high expectations on individual pursuit where social media takes the place of meaningful social/community/familial support. I consider your particular situation, interests, and personality in order to assist you in relieving your distress. Compassionate care shifts perspective, opens options and releases us from unhelpful responses and painful situations--eases our minds. I work with adults across the life span: individuals/ couples with differing sexual preferences, gender identification, and value orientations.

Using holistic methods that deepen the mind-body connection, I support individuals & couples to identify what keeps them stuck or in distress, and discover ways to heal and grow.
My work is grounded in helping people feel more like themselves, more connected in relationships, and less anxious or depressed. Together we can work to understand parts of you that may feel lost, stuck, or in pain, find new ways of relating to yourself and to others, and help you come into a more full sense of who you are. Often people who come to work with me seek support in resolving past trauma. No matter what brings you in, my goal is to offer a safe haven where you feel understood, confront your joys and sorrows, and get the support you need to develop a more full and meaningful life.

If you're partnered, things will improve for both you and your partner .
You're feeling generally dissatisfied, like you drew the short straw. You make it look not too bad on the outside, yet feel unfulfilled in relationships with lover, family, friends, coworkers. You have concerns about overdoing something (drinking, working, internet), or a generalized anxiety, perfectionism, or people-pleasing. I am a highly interactive therapist. I know when to bring in humor--and when to go to the dark places with you. Together we will look at how you got here. Through identifying your beliefs, attitudes and needs around relationships and intimacy, we will find the key to unlocking your wellbeing.

I welcome individual adults, parenting couples and teens into my private practice. My clients often wish to discuss improving their mood, increasing performance at work/school, identifying problems in relationships, exploring their gender identity and establishing healthy screen time/social media habits. With all clients, my initial goal is to offer a safe, non-judgemental space in which we can discover what facets of life most impact them, and how. The goal of my therapies is always to unravel with clients how they arrived in the stressful circumstances they currently inhabit, and how to work on reducing emotional pain.

Each client walks through my door with their own struggle. And although each person comes with their own unique story, the one thing that clients do share is a search for a more fulfilled life or a greater sense of self. I support clients as they navigate life's harder transitions - a loss of a relationship, the transition to becoming a parent, a job transition, or simply figuring out who they truly are and want to be. We work together to notice and shift your inner critic that so frequently gets in the way. Additionally, I support couples as they work through the challenges and desires that come with a relationship.

In that time I have worked with folks presenting various signs of psychological distress: individuals experiencing anxiety or depression, couples experiencing lack of intimacy or infidelity, and children dealing with complex trauma.
People I work with often tell me they feel stuck, unable to enjoy life because of anxiety, depression or apathy. Psychological symptoms are a means of communicating. Something in you needs to be heard, and a trained professional can help. If we can decipher the language of these symptoms, you may find you can change. My aim is to help you listen to yourself in a way that can help you see yourself more clearly, and provide relief from psychological distress.
