I have specialties working with adults and teens from mindfulness -based, relational, somatic, parts work, cognitive behavioral and attachment perspectives.
Does this describe your current state? You are feeling stuck during a difficult life transition, or realize that you have to resolve issues that you have been carrying with you. Or, you are the parent of a teen who is struggling and your family needs professional support to gain ground at this time. Your teen son or daughter could use a compassionate and skilled guide through the turbulent time of adolescence. If you, or your teen, has a trauma to be resolved, are stuck in your life circumstances, or in feelings that are overwhelming, then you have found help! Living a full, healthy life is possible!

I enjoy working with individuals and couples who are looking for ways to heal from past hurts, create lives worth living, or deal with anxiety, stress, and life transitions. Approaching each client from a place of acceptance, my style varies depending on your needs - from listening and supporting you, to asking tough questions or providing more direction. I incorporate mindfulness into my work to support people in connecting with their emotions as well as to help them regulate their emotions.

I bring a compassionate, respectful and warm presence, informed by psychology graduate work, many years in practice with a diverse client base, a mindfulness practice, a strong base in healing trauma, an understanding of somatic/body-awareness work, and deep commitment to authenticity, caring and connection.
Depression, anxiety, loneliness, professional dissatisfaction, the aftermath of trauma - these are symptoms of something deeper calling out for help. Working together, we can learn what stands between you and emotional balance, happiness and strength. Cultivating these positive states is a wonderful way to live! I also work with couples to identify and remedy the root causes of conflict and dissatisfaction. This might include re-opening long-closed channels of communication; revitalizing emotional and sexual intimacy; and learning more deeply what each of you wants and needs from the other.

experiential - we incorporate mindfulness meditation, guided imagery, energy work, somatic practices or expressive arts.
I work with individuals, couples, and adolescents. My approach is warm, inviting, and client-centered. Each session, we begin with what's most present for you, following aliveness as it unfolds - moment-to-moment, wherever it leads. The process has its own intelligence and is highly trustworthy. You bring all of you - light and shadow, blessings and challenges, interests and needs - as well as whatever hurts, feels stuck, or is ready to be released or reclaimed. I bring all of me - presence and deep listening, non-judgment and curiosity, intuition, theory and tools. Together, we co-create ways of working that are unique to you.

If clients are open to it, I use mindfulness -based practices to support emotional balance.
We all want to be happy, or at least free from emotional pain. If you're here, something in your life is causing emotional discomfort--and some part of you senses an invitation to explore your inner and relational worlds with understanding and compassion. I help adults and adolescents deal with obstacles to their preferred lives--unwanted symptoms, relationship challenges, difficulty adjusting to change and loss. My goal is to reinforce your strengths, while co-discovering with you new solutions to the issues blocking growth. I offer a creative and practical style, drawing on approaches specifically tailored to your needs.

There are times, when we need an open minded, non-judgmental external support person who offers strength based, empathetic, and solution focused interventions. I offer support to survivors of traumatic experiences, individuals who have experienced a loss or separation from a loved one, as well as those suffering from depression and anxiety. Emotional pain is as common as physical pain, and can be truly agonizing. I am constantly amazed by the human spirit and believe firmly that everyone has an ability to heal. Allow me the privilege of being part of your journey.

I will develop a plan for you that may include Mindfulness , Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Schema Therapy, EMDR for trauma, Health Psychology etc.
In 2022, you face new challenges. Anxiety, worry or stress limit you from being fully present in life, work, & relationships. Past traumas or attachment hurts get re-triggered. Chronic stressors in your family, work, health, marriage or parenting remain unresolved. Yet challenging times present an opportunity for growth & transformation. You may find new courage to change old, conditioned patterns & self-defeating habits. You may finally be ready to confront difficult emotions, make different choices, live healthier, or take more risks. Our therapy together will be a journey to mould your future self.

I primarily utilize a somatic/ mindfulness /attachment based approach.
I am passionate about helping Individuals and Couples who have reached a time in their lives when they begin to consider making changes. Trauma can keep us from creating that change. Isolation can make change difficult. Life transitions can be hard to navigate. Communication with loved ones can be challenging during conflicts. Abandonment and other relationship injuries are best healed in a relationship with a safe and secure person. As you contemplate creating change, you may find yourself in need of help and support. If you find yourself stuck and in emotional pain, a therapist can help and support you on your journey to healing.

My approach is integrative, blending depth psychology, attachment theory, cognitive behavioral therapy, relational and mindfulness -based practices.
Developing a deeper awareness of our emotional suffering creates an overall sense of well-being, allowing us to live an authentic life. With this deeper awareness, we begin to understand the underlying dynamics that keep us stuck. Inner work in its very essence facilitates insight, healing and transformation, connecting us to our innate wisdom. I work with adults, children and adolescents experiencing a wide range of difficulties. My collaborative, compassionate approach with parents, facilitates conscious, positive parenting to strengthen the parent-child attachment relationship.

My approach includes the frameworks of Mindfulness , CBT, DBT, Somatics, Emotional Freedom Technique and Psychodynamic and Transpersonal perspectives.
We are in the midst of a powerful and pressurized time. Personal challenges are amplified by collective stress and it can be difficult to navigate such new and complex terrain within and around us. We want to feel connected, whole, and in our purpose, but separation, isolation, and fragmented realities are heightened. In this time, awareness, compassion, and courage are needed to meet the painful spaces and shed light on our shadows, transforming them into opportunities for more presence, fulfillment, and peace. I aim to empower the healer within you. As we heal, we serve ourselves and the world around us for the better.

Using a variety of evidence based therapies including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, EMDR, Acceptance & Commitment Therapy & Mindfulness , our sessions will be productive and healing.
I cannot move mountains for you, but I can help you climb. Facing fears, healing from loss, finding meaning and joy - these are the inevitable tasks of life. Therapy may be your first step or your last resort. Often people avoid it all together because they believe their pain is too great, worry they will be judged or that their situation is too complicated. Some people believe they should solve problems on their own or with family and friends. Everyone needs help sometimes. While family and friends may want the best for us, they often come with opinions and past hurts.
