I'm passionate and knowledgeable in working with women's issues , LGBTQIA+ issues, infertility, motherhood, grief and support to those who have lost a loved one to suicide.
How many times have you felt as if you've lost sight of your identity or look back and wonder how you've been managing all this time? Are you living a narrative that doesn't feel like yours, and do you yearn to live a more authentic life? Everything around us gives us narratives about who we should be, how we should feel, and how we should interact with the world from the moment we are born. These narratives shape our expectations of ourselves, especially if we are part of marginalized communities, and can force us to live a story that doesn't feel like it fits, leaving us feeling isolated and lonely.

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.

In addition, I have a strong background in women's issues , including balancing work and personal life, relationship challenges and poor body image.
People are defined by their strengths, not their difficulties. Each of us has the power to change. With my warm and interactive style, I offer a nonjudgmental and safe setting where you can feel comfortable sharing feelings and frustrations. I emphasize helping you make concrete, positive changes in your day to day life. This happens by gaining deeper self-knowledge and altering patterns of thoughts and behaviors that are preventing you from achieving greater personal fulfillment. At a pace that is comfortable for you, I will help you identify major issues that are holding you back, and make real, tangible progress.

I work with adults, couples and families in dealing with a variety of issues such as, relationship issues, women's issues , parenting issues, mood disorders and addictions.
I believe there is a natural tendency toward growth, a desire to be more of ourselves and to enjoy the things we do. For many, that curiosity and vitality has been restricted or shut down. This may lead to feeling depressed, like nothing will change for you. Or anxious, it will only get worse. Or perhaps you sense things could be different and are frustrated, not knowing how to access that new way of being. Psychotherapy is a process through which you can understand how these feelings have come about and how to access your natural tendency toward wellness.

I'm here to help you feel a little less overwhelmed and a little more confident after religious trauma. Trauma threatens to overwhelm and take away your sense of safety and wellbeing. Religious trauma and cult groups take our traumatic experience to a whole new level because god, a higher power, or a higher good becomes the traumatizing figure. Yikes. We help religious trauma survivors address their: Codependency and people-pleasing patterns, triggers and nervous system dysregulation, boundaries, lack of direction, grief over the loss of their communities, families, and friends, and confidence and identity issues.

Change is inevitable, but how it impacts us is is another story. There can be so many uncertainties, losses, and experiences in life that are hard to understand and can leave us shaken and feeling unwell. However change can also be a crucible in life that expands us into newer versions of ourselves— ones that are strong in our resilience, clear in who we are and what matters, and built to surf a world that is uncertain and in flux.

*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.

Your past pain is real and it is common for that past pain to hurt in the present. You don't have to "just accept it". I have success working with clients experiencing trauma, anxiety, depression, ADHD, domestic abuse, maternal mental health issues, family discord, and also have extensive experience working with children, adolescents and families. My clients trust that I can help them over come whatever their challenges are. One of my passions is Prenatal Bonding and psychology, enhancing the bond between mother and child to improve birth outcomes and reduce difficulty in delivery.
