Our mental health doesn’t exist in a vacuum. We need to look at the context of our past, our relationships, and the world around us to be able to understand ourselves and the challenges we face. As a therapist, I’m here to help you put those pieces together so you can step into a more authentic, empowered, and connected version of yourself. I work with clients who are looking for a combination of improved insight and practical tools to improve their relationships with themselves and others.

My therapeutic style is grounded in a humanistic approach and Cognitive-Behavioral therapy with a pragmatic, down-to-earth style. Each client's therapy is individualized, collaborative, and strengths based. I help clients learn to regulate and manage feelings that overwhelm them and negatively affect their thoughts, moods, and attitudes that, in turn, lead to destructive behavior. Whether it is anxiety, depression, diminished self-esteem, or relationship issues, individual clients come to understand their present circumstances in light of their past. I am committed to helping clients improve relationships and gain self knowledge.

Are you a person trying to explore your gender, race, or sexuality? Do you struggle to communicate your needs, set boundaries, and be assertive? I challenge you to speak your truth, understand yourself, and be authentic while maintaining boundaries. I use humor and a strong therapeutic relationship to help you be your ideal, most grounded self. When I think about transforming and changing one's life, I always reflect on Audre Lorde's powerful words. "What are the words you do not yet have...Next time, ask: What's the worst that will happen? Then push yourself a little further than you dare. "

Most of us lug around a suitcase full of our thoughts, feelings, family history and past experiences and have no idea what's in there. Our current responses to and experience of life come from the contents of that suitcase. Together in therapy we gently unpack it. We will see what is working for you, what needs more support and what has served it's purpose but no longer works. I work collaboratively and am curious about all the things that make you who you are. I am particularly interested in working with people who feel misunderstood or unimportant.

If you’re searching for change in your relationships, mental wellness or your use of substances, my focus is using the latest in neuroscience to get you there. I keep up with the latest findings on the brain and the mind and weave it into my therapy approach. I use as many of the advances as possible to change clients’ anxiety, stress and depression. I approach therapy as a collaboration between me and the individual or couple. What works best for the individual or the couple is what I emphasize. I offer articles, books and blogposts for couples and clients to use and refer to in between sessions to enhance the work we’re doing.

Having a trauma-informed lens in therapy means recognizing that some of your difficulties (symptoms) may have their roots in trauma. Our brains and bodies are deeply influenced by those experiences. When we acknowledge, understand and reframe our traumatic experiences, we can get unstuck from patterns that no longer serve us.

I specialize in working with people who feel anxious, overwhelmed, or distressed in career, life situation, or around their relationships, whether with a significant other, family, friends, or social situations. Often this involves working with challenging relationship dynamics, insecurities, sense of self, sense of purpose, or past trauma. My approach combines my experience in both psychotherapy and coaching and is direct, compassionate, and transformative. I utilize the proven research focusing on the neurobiology of attachment along with a holistic toolbox including mindfulness and somatic (body oriented) awareness.

Do you have a hard time speaking up and expressing yourself? When you anticipate a conflict or someone who may have a differing opinion than you, do you tend to keep quiet to maintain the peace? The world sees you as gentle and kind. You are capable, accountable, and have achieved a lot. But There is more fire in you that wants to come out and make things happen. I can help you access the other parts of you that the world doesn’t get to see, the parts that you don’t acknowledge in you but can see and admire in others. Once these parts are allowed to come out, they can help you navigate life with less doubt, more ease, and clarity.

Life can get difficult sometimes as we try to juggle the demands of the external world while finding internal balance and harmony. We can carry the pain inflicted on us due to circumstances, or by others. And sometimes it is just a feeling of wanting something more from life than what seems feasible. These experiences can leave us feeling isolated and disconnected from our sense of aliveness, joy and creativity. I like to support my clients on their journey towards creating a more satisfying life, a life that feels wholesome both internally and externally.

We are all wired to change and grow. But sometimes we get stuck in old patterns and beliefs that keep us from realizing the fullest expression of ourselves. I collaborate with my clients in a safe, non-judgmental environment where we identify these patterns and start developing new ways of experiencing them.

Psychotherapy with me will be a guided, supportive exploration of how you think, feel, act and relate to others. I am a relational therapist: an approach to therapy which combines self-understanding and self-acceptance in relationship to your significant others, both past and present. We all need to be understood. This is my primary job with you: to understand how you think and feel. Once you feel understood, together we can figure out what is getting in the way of living a happier, fulfilling life. I am an expressive therapist, and you will never go away from a session wondering what I think.

My clients learn to build confidence, improve their relationships with themselves and others, and address negative patterns that are holding them back. I see my role as equal parts collaborator, support, and guide for the journey.

It can seem impossible to figure things out, to feel loved, secure, less lonely, frightened or sad. Work, family and social demands can cause stress and/or burn-out. People get caught in cycles of porn/sexual addiction, video games or online surfing that derails them. I'm seasoned and adept at providing safety to think things through. I see many types of people from widely diverse cultural backgrounds and with different sexual orientations. My approach is engaging, warm and exploratory. I provide help at times of crisis, or when life feels unsatisfying, frozen, boring, numb or sad.
