Are you tired from all the striving? Have your achievements brought you fulfillment, or are you even more unhappy, more anxious, more depressed after achieving so many things in the outer world? Is your happiness dependent on your connection to yourself and the natural world or is it dependent on the story you've created about your achievements and what that says about you? If the uncertainty in the world has left you more anxious, more stressed, more worried, then it is the perfect time to make that inner shift, that inner reset.

Navigating life can be difficult. Perhaps you find yourself stuck in problematic relational patterns, struggling to find a different way. Maybe you criticize and put limitations on yourself. Perhaps you have endless empathy for everyone but yourself. Maybe you’ve turned to alcohol or substances to avoid the pain. Maybe you don’t feel much of anything at all. Perhaps you are simply in a rut and you don’t know how to get yourself out of it. The good news is, by simply looking for help you are on your way to regaining confidence, agency, and a fuller, more authentic sense of self. A self that CAN navigate the difficulties of life.

Mental health issues are the most common complication of pregnancy and childbirth. Many of us think "this is not how I thought it would be" at some point during the perinatal period. The stress of becoming a parent can cause us to experience anxiety, (sometimes scary) intrusive and/or obsessive thoughts, relationship conflict, and communication breakdown during the first weeks, months, and years of parenting. My approach is person-centered, warm, and insightful. This means that my primary aim as a therapist is to act as a compassionate guide during your process of self-discovery.

Even the richest of lives lived will bring with it many challenges and emotional pain. Unfortunately, it's often natural that we add to that suffering through worries and rumination, obsessive problem-solving, and a fixation on our shame, fears, and doubt. Our work together can help you make sense of this struggle, break free of unhelpful patterns of thinking, and facilitate more conscious and deliberate ways of interpreting and responding to your world. Let's sort out what's important to you and what's getting in the way, explore how and where you'd like to invest your energy, and take control of your emotional wellness.

Life is unpredictable. Health can falter; careers can get altered; relationships break down and change. Sometimes our normal ways of coping just don't cut it anymore. With over 20 years of experience, I enjoy helping clients find new ways to navigate. We can learn not only how to survive a difficulty but also how to move through it in ways that are healthy, resilient and life-affirming.

"Whoever you are, no matter how lonely, the world offers itself to your imagination...." In Wild Geese, Mary Oliver does not promise salvation, but points to the okay-ness of your being, to the importance of your inner world. How do you, in your imagination, relate to the world? You can find peace inside yourself. I believe therapy is about wholeness-it's not about rejecting who you already are, but about including all aspects of yourself. With compassion and honesty, let's explore the full you so that you may find your inner peace.

"​Courage doesn’t always roar. Sometimes courage is the little voice at the end of the day that says I’ll try again tomorrow.” Mary Anne Radmacher My ideal client is having issues with past traumas, life transitions and troubles. They want to see their life get easier and more joyful. We can figure out therapeutically what's needed and negotiate the number of sessions. With my own life and professional experiences, I bring a wealth of treatment options and resources. I offer a free initial phone (call 15-20 minutes) to help you determine if I'm the therapist for your needs at this time. Sessions are virtual due to COVID-19.

YOU ARE DOING "ALL*THE*THINGS," but you’re emotionally and physically exhausted all the time. You're on autopilot, going through the daily motions, but not living your best life. You put your needs last, with caring for others first. You don’t want to burden or worry your friends or family, with your problems. You self sacrifice only to stay stressed and unfulfilled, with your life and relationships. There is no work-life balance and you don’t know where to start. You don't have to continue down this stressful path, you can gain back energy. CHANGE IS POSSIBLE. With getting the right help, you can create a life worth living!

I assume you are reading my profile because you or someone you love is suffering and in need of help. There is help. I know, based on my own experience and over 45 years of solid research concerning the therapeutic process (with the San Francisco Psychotherapy Research Group) that we all have the desire and means to overcome difficulties from the past, some beyond our awareness. Our minds are capable of planning ways to overcome even long-standing problems and suffering. I work collaboratively and compassionately with you to provide the safety and sheltering atmosphere that facilitates your natural impulse toward emotional health.

I am a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist who came to practice later in life and believe my life's experience makes me a better therapist. I enjoy working with children and older adults in life transitions. I treat children who suffer from anxiety and depression and those that are victims of abuse, abandonment, and homelessness. I support Transgender & Gender Non-Conforming Clients. I also work with adults facing a life transition. This may be caring for an older parent, loss of a loved one, or a life threatening illness. These situations trigger a mixed bag of emotions that can be overwhelming.

I love to help individuals, couples and parents thrive in their life/ lives together. I use an attachment based model that helps my clients experience their strengths individually and as a couple. Together, from this place grounded in your resilience, we will work with your challenges. Trauma, attachment woundings, communication issues, addiction, as well as avoidance of feelings and intimacy can block us from living the full, healthy lives we long for. I have already helped many clients find another way. I believe you can too and we can find it together.

It’s no secret. Many boys hate the idea of therapy or even just talking about their feelings. I’ve been working almost exclusively with boys (ages 5-18) and their families for over 15 years. If your son and family feel overwhelmed or distant from each other, I take a fresh look at your family’s unique strengths and build on these to work through conflict, reconnect, and re-establish joy as a daily practice. My work is driven by the latest research in neurobiology.

My style is collaborative, engaged and supportive. I will work with you to overcome depression, anxiety, substance abuse or relationship issues that are holding you back from leading a more fulfilling life. In individual work we will explore your past experiences and family of origin that may have brought you to hold on to many negative unconscious beliefs and behaviors that are leaving you unhappy or unsuccessful in both your work and intimate relationships. In couples work we will work to dismantle destructive communication patterns, learn new ways of reaching toward your partner and increase levels of true intimacy.
