I believe in giving it to you straight wrapped with warmth and love. I believe we all have the power to make change but sometimes need a little help along the way. I provide individual, couples and family therapy to children, adolescents and adults. I have an array of experience from working to outpatient mental health clinics where I supervised psychology and social work interns to consulting at local schools to coordinating clinical programs. In addition I also enjoy weaving eastern and western philosophies into my practice.

I believe in human resiliency. I have witnessed profound healing, strength and transformation in lives through the process of psychotherapy. With a therapeutic relationship; awareness, learning and renewal occur. Relationships failing? Body image issue? Feeling stuck, insecure, depressed or anxious? Therapy supports emotional intelligence so that we can face these challenges with new perspectives. Introspection & support are an important part of objectively looking at ourselves, our habits, relationships and lives. With these tools, healing conversations, insight and more, change is achieved.

Finding a good therapist is hard! We’ll make the process smooth & easy for you. Schedule a free consult call and we’ll get to know you a bit, find out what you’re looking for and how we can help. Then we’ll match you with a therapist who best fits you. You’ll have opportunity to speak directly with them and see how it feels. If all good, the two of you will find the best day & time to meet. What you’ll get here is a specialized kind of therapy; it’s not your basic talk therapy. Because talking about your sh!t is a start, but just talking blah blah blah is not always enough to make lasting & deep change.

I rely upon a variety of therapy methods - psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral and existential. My hope is to help people suffering with the emotional consequences of physical pain to improve insight, coping and acceptance. I can also provide pre-surgical psychological evaluations as required by insurance for invasive pain and other medical procedures. I collaborate with health care providers. I also provide psychotherapy to non-pain patient for general emotional issues

Have you attained success in your life, only to find that you feel resentful and burnt out? As a high achiever, it’s confusing to suddenly feel disconnected from the passion that has always driven you. Maybe this dissatisfaction has been slowly growing over the years & you’ve been able to manage it. But now you’re finding it harder to feel interested in your work or relationships. You may also be feeling exhausted & curious why your skills simply aren't working anymore. The habitual stress associated with being a powerful go-getter can also lead to a variety of health problems that medical doctors aren’t skilled at addressing.

Life will sometimes nudge and then shout at us when we need to pause and look within ourselves. It often comes at times when we feel sad, hurt, anxious, or depressed. It may be at times when relationship struggles, self-doubt, or loss arise. Whether you are returning to therapy or preparing to enter it for the first time, with this step change is already underway. As I see it, the therapy process is a journey to resolve painful experiences, gain insight, and develop strengths and new abilities, all which help to navigate life’s challenges. Healing is possible as well as clarity on how to move forward.

I enjoy helping youth, college students, adults, and older adults learn to manage emotional stress, anxiety, depression, ADHD, PTSD, Trauma, and LGBTQ+ issues. Collaborating with clients on goals helps them tap into their authentic selves, helping them identify personalized self-care skills to restructure negative thinking patterns. I think it is important to meet people where they are focusing on their strengths to inspire and motivate them to meet their particular needs or goals. I help my clients find inner happiness through a positive mindset.

From the outside looking in, you’ve got it all together. You look the part, talk the talk, and everyone around you seems to believe it. But on the inside, you're lonely, tired, and starving for something that you can’t quite pinpoint. You wonder if something is wrong with you. You worry that all of the best moments of your life have already happened. You desperately want a new experience, but you’re afraid that it’s too late to start again. As scary as it is to make a change, there is voice inside asking, "is this it?"

**Accepting New Clients** Many of my clients come to me during times of uncertainty and stress -- feeling lost or on edge, experiencing turmoil in their relationships, or generally overwhelmed and eager to find solutions. I believe that our problems have deeper roots and if not addressed can cause unconscious and unwanted patterns that affect our relationships with ourselves, others, and our perception of our reality. I hope to partner with you toward self-discovery, empowerment, self-compassion, and responding instead of reacting from a place of peace rather than urgency.

My clients enjoy the casual, conversational feel to our therapy sessions. I strive to create a comfortable and authentic environment to open up a safe space for a rich, productive experience. I’ve had a lot of success working with the BIPOC community of all ages; especially adult individuals and couple units. I have had success working with biracial couples struggling with cultural blending, as well as finding and building their identity as a couple. I also enjoy supporting students in their exploration of post-high school routes and careers!

Are you struggling with how you show up in relationships? Are you needing to explore yourself within the context of a relationship? Are you finding yourself repeating the same patterns from one relationship to the next? Self-work is just one side of relationship coaching. On the other side, there is couple’s work. Are you and your partner facing challenges that you can’t seem to resolve? Do you have a hard time expressing or receiving love? Do you struggle with intimacy issues (physical and emotional connection) that prevents you to grow closer and attach on a deeper level? If you have answered YES to any, you’re in the right place.

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.

Your emotions are at the center of who you are as a person. If you feel your feelings as distinctive, you feel your individuality. If you feel without too much evasion, you feel genuine and alive as a person. Equally central to your emotional life, and to your personhood, is human relationship. Your relationships with others, past and present, shape your experience of emotion, and your sense of self. When others see validity/invalidity, value/no-value, good/bad in your feelings, then you see your emotional life accordingly with validity/invalidity, value/unvalued, and so forth. So, let's talk about feelings and relationships.

My passion is in body psychotherapy. Clients enjoy our work connecting their body/inner strengths and their mind/rational strengths to achieve growth. My clients value the kindness, compassion, and safety I create, so they feel comfortable and heard. I have success working with clients that experience cancer, adoption, grief, stress, excessive worry, depression, conflict with others, life transitions, parenting issues, chronic illness and pain. Caregivers and family members of cancer patients find working with me helpful, healing, and nurturing. Clients that are not comfortable just talking really appreciate the tools I give them.

During this unprecedented time of isolation, illness, and cultural and political upheaval, we are being deeply impacted both individually and collectively. The strain of these recent events can intensify ongoing stressors on every front; relationships, finances, physical and mental health - increasing feelings of loneliness, anxiety and depression. As a trauma therapist, I integrate psychotherapy and Attachment-Focused EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), a cutting edge therapy that works with the brain's natural ability to heal.
