Making the decision to seek a therapist takes courage and is the first step towards building a happier and healthier life. I use a variety approaches to customize treatment to the uniqueness of each individual and/or situation. I have found EMDR and parts work to be a highly effective and efficient approaches. I love see people start to heal with only a few sessions. I work from the principle that everyone has the potential to grow and be happy. I have in-depth experience working with issues of trauma/abuse, depression, anxiety, adult ADHD, women's issues and adjustment to parenting and/or family role changes.

Most people I see are dealing with issues related to anxiety, depression, divorce, eating disorders, couples and family conflict, addiction and 12-step work. It's with great sensitivity and respect that I work to ensure that therapy is a safe, compassionate place where clients can let down their guard, process emotional pain and begin to put their lives back together.

With specialties in addiction and dual diagnosis; including depression, anxiety and trauma history, I take an integrated, holistic approach to care. The therapeutic relationship is one in which optimum healing is, as a result of the reciprocal bond, between the therapist and the client. One can only be open to the experience of change and improvement in their life if they feel safe. This is the therapy space that I provide in order to help shape authentic, loving and accurate self-awareness. I provide nurturance, guidance, affirmation and compassionate reflection in order to help clients feel grounded in their own decision-making.

Being an adolescent/young adult can feel amazing, while also feeling confusing with all of the changes experienced during this time. I specialize in working with adolescents, young adults and their families, through individual, family and group counseling. I primarily utilize therapeutic approaches of Cognitive Behavior Therapy and Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction as part of individual and group counseling. Group counseling can enable individuals to form bonds with peers in a structured environment; understand that others can relate to their concerns; and share personal feelings that they have difficulty communicating.

"As above, so below". The ancient saying reminds us that the ways in which we experience life and encounters with others are based on patterns of behavior and beliefs about ourselves in the world that have developed over time. Often these patterns and beliefs serve us well, other times they create inner turmoil, frustration, and confusion. As a therapist, I am committed to the facilitating the process for you of discovering unconscious patterns and beliefs, how they have been beneficial or harmful, and learning to make consciously informed responses to the problematic situations in life that you are facing.

Currently, I'm mostly using Internal Family Systems (IFS) therapy with my clients. When, as a child, we find ourselves traumatizing or trapped in negative circumstances, parts of our self system compensate by locking away that which at that time was too much for us to handle. Later, if we do not go back to this locked away material, the pain, confusion and injustice of what happened to us long ago, can get triggered, or, awakened, when similar such challenges arise in the present. IFS provides a safe way for that locked away material to be approached and reprocessed, allowing our core self to take back control of our lives.

Any of us can get "stuck in a rut" and one key to pulling out of it is learning to respond effectively to life's stressors, rather than react negatively to them. My background in attachment theory, cognitive behavioral strategies, mindfulness and EMDR, allows me to successfully help those struggling with anxiety, depression and trauma. I also enjoying helping people cope with life transitions and relationship problems. I love working with clients who are motivated for change but whose inner critic can be fierce, often limiting them from experiencing joy and contentment.
