I believe in a holistic, trauma-informed, and strengths-based approach to healing anxiety, depression, trauma, and addiction.
Our life experiences can lead us to question our identity and purpose in the world we live in. This can lead us to anxiety, depression, and trauma. Do you want to improve how you face challenges, function in your relationships, and face overwhelming feelings? I place heavy importance on addressing trauma. Trauma disintegrates the parts that make up your whole self, which can leave aspects of who you are hidden from your awareness. Left unaddressed, anxiety and depression can worsen, which can rob you of the necessary connection that all human beings need to thrive. I aim to help you process unresolved trauma.

My specialty areas are substance abuse, couples issues, eating disorders, life coaching, bariatric surgery issues, infertility/adoption, helping caregivers cope with dealing with a loved one's chronic illness.
My focus is to develop a relationship with the client. This is called the two person model which is different than the old fashion practice where the doctor is one up and the client is one down. Rather, the two person model attempts to understand the client through questions and mutual discussion. I am not a silent therapist. I give feedback and remain fully engaged with the patient. Together we build a rapport. I adhere to a humanistic approach.

There may be so many painful and powerful memories that brought you here, stringing along with them the thoughts and emotions that continue to have a negative toll on your daily life. You disconnect, you zone out, you freeze, you run. You may have asked yourself, “Why can’t I just let all of this go and move on?” People in your life may have asked you the same question. Maybe you already tried to take care of the issue yourself, you tried going down so many different avenues to heal and you worked doing so. I’d like to honor that. Now you’re here, trying a different path. So, let’s let's try something new. We'll travel together.

I specialize in guiding individuals through integral exploration of their experiences, with a focus on areas such as anxiety, depression, addiction, grief, masculinity, relationship challenges, self-esteem, and motivation.
We all suffer varying levels of trauma and stress. If left unacknowledged and properly cared for, the textures of these experience tend to live on in our subconscious beliefs as parts seeking a sense of completion. They tend to come alive in our relationships by enacting old strategies in new situations. Inadvertently working to self-sabotage, control, repress, extinguish, protect, express, and feel what was missed in these moments of suffering. These are the experiences that color our lives, speak to who we are, what we’ve experienced, what we value, and what we hope to accomplish in life. You don’t have to hold this alone.

My general practice welcomes individuals and couples working with many issues such as depression, anxiety, grief, life transitions, identity and sexuality, trauma, substance use, LGBTI concerns, new parenting, family conflict, and work-life balance issues.
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.
