I’m a bit of a romantic, I’m sensitive, as well as a fan of sports who grew up watching Star Wars; but right now, I just want to say welcome. As a non-judgmental gestalt therapist, I plan on being honest and up front with you, while doing so in a caring way. I'm focused on facilitating and supporting you as you reconnect with the healing and growth that you want.

Are you feeling stressed, overwhelmed, or lost? Perhaps you are having a hard time getting through each day and it just seems to be getting harder. Some nights you can’t turn your brain off - yet you don’t have the words to describe the thoughts that keep you up at night. People might not realize you lack confidence, feel worried, or struggle with perfectionism. You love the people around you, but you feel uncertain and lonely. You want to make changes to help yourself feel better, but you don't know what to do. You feel tired, disappointed, and are secretly worried you are the problem. You are ready to try something new.

There comes a point for many of us when we realize that we don’t want to face our problems alone. We are human after all, and a part of what defines that humanity is our need for each other. Maybe it’s difficult for you to acknowledge this desire. You may be afraid to let people in and get close. You might tend to give more than you get back. Sometimes you might not even know what is that you're needing. Maybe you find yourself stuck in the same patterns you thought you had broken. You might feel self-critical. You may be marginalized and feel unseen and unheard. Feelings of hopelessness, grief, and anxiety might overwhelm you.

Therapeutic relationships can truly be life changing and transformational. The issues that are leading you to think about therapy can be worked on, leading to increased satisfaction and joy with yourself, improved relationships with others, and enhanced functioning in pursuit of the life you want. I work collaboratively with you to help you develop more flexible responses to resolve conflict. Listening to your unique story with deep curiosity is crucial to our work, but I'm also pro-active and engaged in sharing my thoughts and observations. Kindness and compassion are vital, but so too are active help and feedback.

The most significant predictor of a successful therapy experience is the quality of the relationship between therapist and client. Building a safe, nurturing relationship is where I excel. My style is warm and highly interactive, best suited for clients who prefer a therapist who feels very human, less like the old "medical model." I assist clients to explore their thought patterns and corresponding emotional reactions, and to identify unconscious assumptions they hold about themselves, which inform their behavioral patterns. I also provide practical tools for regulating anxiety, managing depression, and processing grief & loss.

My goal as a therapist is to serve as a compassionate witness, creating a safe space for clients to explore their whole selves - body, mind, and spirit. Together, we can map the territory of your lived experience and find the road that leads to a place of knowing, confidence, and satisfaction. I welcome the whole you. The places of lightness and the places of darkness. I welcome your multitude of backgrounds and experiences. I welcome the parts that follow the rules, as well as the rebel parts that march to a different beat. Come just as you are - to discover who you can become.

I work primarily with trauma survivors: people who have gone through experiences that were too painful, shameful, frightening, or confusing to put into words at the moment those experiences occurred. You were or are alone in an unbearable situation. It wasn’t or isn't safe to talk about what you were going through. Those painful events might have happened yesterday, or maybe twenty years ago – but the bad feelings have never left you. One day you decide it’s time to figure out what happened, and how to cope, and how to build a life of meaning and purpose. I hope that day is today. I believe I can help you.

You don't have to do this alone. Deciding to start therapy takes courage and strength. Sometimes our minds can be so overwhelmed that it's hard to see a path forward. You may feel like you are going from one crisis to the next. So many of us don't even quite know what a better life looks like at the moment. I can help you figure out where to start and how to use therapy as a tool to improve your quality of life. Through tele-health, we can jump into therapy quickly, and you never need to leave the comfort of your couch. Let any anxiety or doubt about starting therapy go and allow yourself the time and space to feel better.

Things seem fine from the outside, you are successful in some areas of your life, but deep down you feel there is something missing. You feel anxious, depressed or empty, and there is a constant feeling of not fitting in. You notice frustrating patterns you continue to get stuck in and feel dissatisfied with where you are. In therapy you can talk freely and safely about how you feel. Through our work together you will understand your experience in relation to your personal history and everyday life, learn to manage difficult feelings and get the tools to address your needs. This will lead to long-lasting meaningful change.
