EFFECTIVE PSYCHOTHERAPY .... ---involves more than someone giving you sage advice or counseling --- involves more than sitting and talking with a kind, patient and empathic professional --- involves more than simply identifying and changing negative thoughts and doubts --- involves more than feeling your hurt feelings and catharsis --- involves more than learning mindfulness or meditation --- does not occur in a few sessions. Effective psychotherapy integrates all these processes tailored to your life and provides you with TOOLS with which to make better decisions about your life, and manage and heal your emotional issues and traumas. .

A person comes to therapy when their present ways of being in relationship, or in the world, no longer seem to hold the meaning they once did. My aim is to support you in creating a new foundation of hope, purpose, and meaning in your life. I help people seek wholeness through the integration of mind, body, and soul, thus expanding their current level of understanding, and in so doing, creating the capacity to live more meaningfully.

Accepting new clients. I treat clients who struggle with anxiety, panic attacks, depression, relationship conflicts, and life transitions. I find that so many of my clients feel overwhelmed by their anxiety and panic attacks and don't know what to do to help themselves truly feel better. The good news is there are so many strategies to overcome anxiety that you can learn! My clients have made enormous strides in conquering anxiety and other emotions that hold them back.

100% Online telehealth. Are you longing for clarity and ease? Most of our psychological pain and suffering, our inhibitions and limitations in achieving a satisfying life, are the result of primitive anxieties that we have carried within ourselves since the very time we were, indeed, really helpless. Through our work together, you'll learn the tools to understand the meaning underneath your emotions and move beyond feeling stuck and overwhelmed. Using both talk therapy and somatic (body-based) tools, our time together will be a place for you to heal, grow, and explore your inner world in a compassionate and non-judgmental space.

Changing old habits and building emotional resilience makes sense at any age. I base my theoretical approach on the widely researched neuropsychological findings of Attachment Theory. Underlying successful treatment is the richness of the therapeutic relationship. I use evidence based methods including CBT, Mindfulness and brief psychotherapy.

I mostly do individual psychotherapy but also lead a psychotherapy group where people heal in a collective setting. If interested in group therapy let me know. Otherwise, here is how I work individually - 3 items on the menu. 1) Regular talk therapy, because you just need to tell your story, get support & validation. 2) Modified Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, because you need to get stable, some skills, to change your behaviors. 3) Trauma work (ie, EMDR), because your past is haunting you and we need to change that.

I want to create a relationship with my clients based on trust, mutual respect, and unconditional regard. I feel that if I can create this environment I can more deeply connect with others and hope to see things from their perspective. I believe that people have the inner capacity for change, and I want to help them be more able to readily access this. This can look different based on each person, helping people move forward in a way they feel will be most productive. I also value multicultural differences and in an effort to more fully understand a person's frame of reference.

It can be very challenging to see things clearly in life. I help individuals re-adjust their way of looking at themselves, their relationships, and the world. Through psycho-dynamic exploration, I come alongside a patient in the discovery of what is possible, as it is my belief that the most crucial part of therapy is the relationship that builds between patient and therapist. It is often easier to shine a light into uncertain areas of one's heart and mind when someone else is holding the flashlight.

In 2020, I opened a private practice. I was blessed it grew to full capacity but dealt with sadness of turning people away due to no space. Frequently people shared their difficulties with finding therapy. I am tired of people and families, who are suffering emotionally not getting the help they need. So, I put together a group of several skilled clinicians. We operate by providing a therapy environment that is confidential and emotionally safe. We’re dedicated to making people feel comfortable and understood when discussing the most sensitive issues. Our goal is to ensure support that is empathetic and non-judgmental.

I have a curiosity in learning about people's stories and bring compassion to the experience of a life out of balance. Therapy can help us develop wise responses to reach our goals and find solutions to life's problems. There are many reasons to seek therapy. Therapy creates a container to explore and attend to the difficulties in our lives. Therapy supports lasting change through awareness. In therapy we explore fulfillment and work toward courage and wisdom.

We often seek therapy when we're ready for change and part of our life has become unbalanced. A feeling of discontent, depression, or anxiety may have lasted a lifetime, or may have been initiated by a transitional change, such as loss of a relationship or career, or a yearning to grow beyond where we have been stuck.
