I believe the purpose of therapy is to create a safe and validating environment where people can focus on creating a "life worth living". I help facilitate this journey by focusing on both acceptance and change in a warm, interactive and thoughtful fashion. If you are someone who is struggling to manage your emotions and behaviors because of anxiety, depression, or trauma we can work together to define the life you want and overcome the obstacles to it.

My job as a therapist is to help you take a step back from your life through mindfulness and really get to the heart of what's going on. We'll look at the ways your inner critic has sabotaged your life so far, all the ways you try to appease your inner critic by shutting yourself down, and discover what your life could look like if you didn't have to worry about the voice of shame popping up. We'll do a deep dive into your history to discover where the inner critic came from and the core beliefs that keep it alive.

I work with children, families and individuals. I specialize in pediatric mental health services, relationship stress/issues, trauma, parenting support, depression and anxiety and substance abuse issues. I use play therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, art activities, mindfulness and other supports to help you manage stressors in life. More of the same will not elicit different results. I can help you identify your strengths, build upon them and use them to address your concerns. Acknowledge your strengths, they are the tools for life. Personal strength leads to balance in life. When we achieve balance, we are less likely to fall over.

Perhaps we’re still piecing the story together. Clues presenting themselves in unconscious cycles— we’ve been here before and how we got back feels, for now, like a mystery. I believe that the human experience is ultimately a pursuit for belonging in the spirals of meaning-making. We’re not blind to our truth— we bend, accommodate, bury, and mourn parts of ourselves lost to a culture that tells us, in one way or another, that our whole self isn’t welcome. Circumstances may have reached a painful point. The therapeutic experience can provide a container of time and space to repair and hold what’s been left behind.

*Not currently accepting new clients* Some people sense wisdom within dark places, and seek support to learn and grow through them. Anxiety, depression, and addiction are not merely pathology, but are best understood as part of a larger system that can be brought into awareness. These symptoms may also be fundamentally connected to our greatest gifts and uniqueness - one's sensitivity, awareness, and drive towards growth - often misplaced or misunderstood.

Never have life challenges been as great as now for you and your future. For we must improve relations with each other and our planet or perish. As a man you may feel frustrated in either work or intimate relationships or both. Yet the personal skills needed for work are usually opposite from those for intimacy. There seems to be no way to the success you yearn for. As a woman you may cope with anxiety or depression and succeed at friendship. Yet coupling has meant losing track of yourself, and good men seem to be hard to find. The way forward involves increasing our emotional skills and love for ourselves, others and our planet.

The most important person in the therapy session is you. The most mysterious person in the therapy session is you. And the most powerful insight will eventually come from you. You may feel stuck, angry, lonely, confused, hopeless or numb. Maybe you feel too much? Perhaps you're losing hours on tik tok or porn sites? you dissociate, sleep too much; can't sleep. It's okay to reach out. Everyone wants connection, everyone needs connection. Therapy can help you find ways to connect.

We all have a variety of emotions, and that's normal! It's when they interfere with functioning or turn into a long-lasting mood that we could use some help. Perhaps you feel anxious and depressed, or dissatisfied and upset in your relationships. Maybe you need support as you weather a storm in your life, or someone to help you get back on track with your normal functioning. The bottom line is you don't want your mood to derail your goals, your relationships, and your life.

Why are you seeking a therapist? Gaining an understanding of your needs is the first step we take together to develop your personal therapy. Yes, you read that right. I encourage my clients to be active participants in the development of their therapy. What is effective for one person is not necessarily effective for another. The strength of my therapeutic approach is in its transparency and my focus on guiding and empowering you, the client, in becoming an agent of change in your own life.

Borderline Personality (BPD) Therapists
Borderline personality disorder is a chronic condition that may include mood instability, difficulty with interpersonal relationships, and high rates of self-injury and suicidal behavior. Borderline personality disorder (BPD) is characterized by pervasive instability in moods, interpersonal relationships, self-image, and behavior. This instability often disrupts family and work life, long-term planning, and an individual's sense of identity.
