It may not feel like it right now, but change is possible. Through therapy, you can become aware of the unconscious decisions you are making each day that are unknowingly shaping your life. You may find that the unhelpful decisions all center around patterns meant to keep you safe. Together, we can work on increasing your sense of security and recognizing which patterns are no longer working. I am trained in EMDR, Internal Family Systems Therapy, and Sensorimotor Therapy. These modalities can aid you in going deeper and effectively processing the patterns and traumas that are keeping you stuck.

I am a Level 1 trained Internal Family Systems ( IFS ) therapist.
First, I want to say welcome and recognize your courage in seeking therapy. It is important to me to address each person in their entirety - including one’s physical, emotional, mental, cultural and spiritual self. My style of therapy is focused on what is showing up in the present while also acknowledging and honoring how past patterns impact you today. In my work I bring an awareness of and sensitivity to power, prejudice and oppression and the many impacts that they have on an individual’s experience of themselves and the world around them.

I also use EMDR, IFS , and mindfulness techniques for change.
I know this is hard, but you are not alone. With over 22 years experience counseling individuals, I can help! You may want to feel better about yourself, or are struggling to overcome wounds from the past that just keep holding you back. Old painful experiences may have led you to keep ending up in the same life patterns despite your best efforts to change. Perhaps you have been suffering for too long with feelings of panic, fear, anxiety and general unhappiness that interferes with relationships and having the life you want. I believe we all have great capacity for growth and crisis is a profound opportunity for lasting change.

IFS is a useful tool to navigate areas of internal conflict and develop self-kindness.
Life can be hard, whether dealing with unexpected setbacks, longstanding problems, or just working hard to build a life of purpose and meaning. Some clients are dealing with stress, grief, and loss. Some clients are stressed by balancing a life that could best be described as “All Good Things, Just Too Many.” I believe our work is about more than treating dis-ease. It is about living fully, with ease, vitality, and wellness. Sometimes this starts with learning to deal with hard thoughts and feelings that can get in the way. It always involves getting clear about who you want to be and what matters most.

My approach is eclectic, but I often incorporate cognitive-behavioral interventions as well as internal family systems interventions.
By considering a therapist, you are taking a step towards improving your life, examining what needs to be changed and building upon what is already working. Life can get better and you have the power to change it. During difficult times, it is important to either develop healthy support systems or utilize the ones that we already have. Seeking therapy is one piece of a healthy support system. You are acknowledging that some aspects of your life may not be going well and need to be changed. Therapy can help you to put life in perspective.

I specialize in IFS , DBT, and CBT to help my clients to identify their internal parts and help these parts to discover healthier skills for coping.
Life can feel impossible to avoid struggling and we often don't feel we have the skills to cope successfully through. Unfortunately, sometimes we don't have all the resources we need for a given situation. Parts of us take on desperate roles trying to help us to survive. This might look like anxiety, depression, PTSD, addiction, and relationship/family issues. I aim to help you process unresolved issues and feelings and find solutions.

FOR ALL: Because no single approach is right for everyone, I have trained in a range of approaches including Internal Family Systems ( IFS ), Somatic Experiencing (SE), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) for Couples, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprogramming (EMDR), and Ericksonian Hypnosis.
FOR COUPLES: are you having the same arguments again and again? Do you feel pain and hurt where there used to be love and caring? Are you close to giving up, and it feels like nothing will ever change? When human beings encounter stressors, they can get stuck. Lives can unravel. My passion is to bring healing to those who are distressed. I work with couples, individuals, and families. I can help you grow and find peace, connection, and wholeness.

I work through an attachment-based and trauma-informed framework - specifically, through the clinical models of Internal Family Systems ( IFS ) and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing).
I work with clients who struggle with: unresolved emotional injury, trauma, self-worth, relational problems, mood/emotional problems, addictions, compulsive behaviors, and spiritual issues. I also work with members of the clergy (pastors, missionaries, ministry leaders) who struggle with deep personal issues but lack a safe, nurturing space in which they may experience support and healing. My clients all seek and deserve healing in their lives and relationships.
