Are you stuck in a rut? Do you feel like you can get more out of life? Mamas, have you recently had a baby-- and your life has been turned upside down? You are not alone and I am here to help. My strength lies in understanding your unique struggles and formulating a plan of action to overcome these obstacles. I generally use CBT, which examines the problematic patterns in your thoughts and behaviors that impact your mood. I work predominantly with professional women who are challenged by life's major milestones and transitions.

I work collaboratively with clients to alleviate symptoms, change behavioral patterns and negative thinking, transform family-of-origin dynamics, and improve relationships. For the past 20 years, I have helped clients with anxiety, depression, relationships, grief/loss, eating disorders/body image, racial identity, chronic illness, postpartum, infertility, and life/career transitions. I specialize in working with new mothers, women at mid-life, and women in transition. I provide a supportive environment where clients learn to be present with their experience and explore emotions and thoughts with acceptance and non-judgment.

I sub-specialize in working with women who have pelvic pain disorders, and I have an on-going weekly therapy treatment group.
Life throws us obstacles every day. Sometimes we are able to overcome them on our own. Other times however, it is harder to move through them without support. When life becomes overwhelming & there seems like nowhere else to turn, therapy can be a helpful option. To some, therapy seems scary, uncomfortable, strange, or even stigmatizing. But overall, it takes courage to seek help or to make a change. I have training, education, & experience working with a range of psychological issues including depression, anxiety, substance abuse, compulsive behaviors, & addiction.

I more recently have started working with women and families around infertility, pregnancy and postpartum.
Starting therapy can be an exciting and daunting process. Working with a therapist allows you to have an unbiased third party listen to your story, validate your emotions and help foster and provide insight and support. Therapy can help you learn new strategies and techniques to help you better tolerate distress and view thoughts, feelings and situations differently. My goal as a therapist is to provide a safe, compassionate, and non-judgmental space where we can work together to identify and process issues you have been facing.

I enjoy working with women / women 's issues, the LGBTQI community, adults/young adults, artists/creatives/dancers, and those who identify with alternative lifestyles are welcome to my practice.
Dealing with various types of trauma and the ways in which it can impact our daily lives can be challenging. I am here to help you understand that your trauma does not define you, your trauma reactions are valid and I’d like to support you in the development of healthy coping skills. This will allow you the freedom to transcend beyond traumatic experiences, forging a new path toward growth, healing, recovery and wellness. I can help you navigate and cope with addiction/substance use, PTSD, depression, anxiety, life transitions, identity related issues, and family/interpersonal relationships.

I love working with children, adolescents and young women who have "behavioral problems," "worry too much," have "big emotions," or struggle socially. My clients typically experience more of the world and feel the world more deeply than others. While this can be scary and lead to challenging behaviors, over time, a big heart is a super-power. Parents who come to my office often wonder: a) "will this help?" b) "will you understand my child?" and "c) if you understand my kid, will you then judge me?" My answers are a) "yes. It can even be fun" b) "that's my main goal" c) "not a chance."

I have an extensive background in working with women and men who are dealing with major life transitions whether in their personal or professional life as well as individuals struggling with anxiety and depression.
Often times, feelings of anxiety, depression, and fear can leave us paralyzed and unable to achieve our goals and find real fulfillment. I believe that through therapy and the relationship created in the therapeutic process, people can confront and overcome the feelings that may be keeping them from fully realizing their potential. As a therapist my goal is to create a safe, nurturing, non-judgmental environment in which you can explore feelings, resolve painful issues from the past and present, improve relationships and achieve fulfillment.

” Clarissa Pinkola Estés, Women Who Run With the Wolves.
*CASELOAD FULL* Many survivors of trauma feel isolated from their supportive relationships and community, feeling intense and persistent fear, anxiety, agitation, and at times disconnection. Trauma dramatically shifts our experiences of the world and how we relate to others, leaving many feeling alone and stuck simply surviving. Trauma is a psychological injury, and is reparable and treatable. With a multimodal approach, I help clients restore a sense of safety in their environment and within themselves, deeply heal traumatic injuries, and reconnect within relationships and engage in meaningful lives.

I specialize in working with women and mothers.
Adjusting to parenthood is one of the most profound transitions you will have in your lifetime. It is a time when support is truly needed. Not only is motherhood physically exhausting at times; it can be emotionally draining as well. The highs and pure love are often coupled with lows and uncertainty. Unfortunately, moms often do not share experiences that are outside the happiness ideal. If you are experiencing both highs and lows or feelings of ambivalence, you are not alone. These feelings are not a reflection of who you are as a person or mother.

My hearts’ delight is showing up for women recovering from narcissistic abuse.
You are mad at yourself because once again you're in a relationship with a narcissist. Your partner was fun and charming, but now you realize that he/she; is only interested in himself, is incapable of recognizing their responsibility when things go wrong, angry most of the time, and often has terrifying rage episodes; tell you that you are the crazy one. You feel isolated and confused and longer able to trust your own reality. You mask the pain with alcohol, drugs, sex, over-spending, over-working, over-pleasing, and over-doing, but eventually, these ways of getting through bad days stop working. You want your life back.
