I imagine you're here seeking some support in navigating a challenging time, feeling or change in your life. Lets learn about that together. I offer you a sacred time and space to explore the elements that are leading to this current situation. I utilize a holistic, mindful and relational approach adapted to each individual who walks in including children, teens and adults. As a Somatically trained therapist, I encourage therapy to gather information from your thoughts, feelings and beliefs as well as information from you body (sensations, pain, tension, movements). I encourage self-learning, self-compassion and learning new skills.

Do you ever wonder why you have anxiety, nervous tension, mood fluctuations, an inability to concentrate, or a lack of motivation? There are reasons for symptoms such as these, some of which may be environmental, including past trauma or adverse childhood experiences, some biological or hereditary and some related to current stressors. But it is important to have an understanding of these factors, as this type of knowledge is power. In my practice, I offer supportive, compassionate counseling that encourages insight and understanding on the part of my clients, but is also solution-focused with feedback and guidance where needed.

I have been in practice fourteen years providing therapy to individuals, as well as couples and groups. One principal goal is to provide a safe and supportive environment where clients can feel comfortable exploring personal issues; with the end result being a greater understanding of self - both internally and in relationship to others. I draw from many theoretical orientations, and most importantly emphasize emotional safety in my work. I remain very passionate about my occupation and hope that this is warmly conveyed to everyone I have the privilege to work with.

Connection is at the core of who we are, what we’re passionate about, and the most meaningful relationships we have. And yet so many things can interfere with our ability to connect: anxiety, depression, grief, traumatic experiences...how we cope with these things may inhibit our ability to build intimacy with those around us. I work with students and young adults, as well as those in mid-life and beyond, who experience anxiety, depression, relationship issues, or life transitions, that interfere with living fully you, fully now.
