I specialize and am dedicated to helping trauma survivors, particularly of sexual abuse / assault .
It is within your reach to live a life that is more grounded, calm, and satisfying - where you're not overwhelmed by emotions and sensations - no matter how you are feeling right now or what happened before. You feel on guard, emotionally and physically flooded, disempowered, alone, or hijacked by triggers. Maybe you feel like you cannot trust yourself or others, and your self-confidence is suffering. Whether you're here because of a traumatic event or you have experienced multiple hardships in life, it is possible to get through this, reclaim your strength and control, and help your body learn to regulate in the present moment.

I specialize in working with: issues of body image in men and women, anxiety, shame, depression, survivors of verbal, physical, and sexual abuse , chronic pain, PTSD, and the physical and psychological impact of motor vehicle accidents, injuries, surgeries, and concussions.
I want your body to feel like a home. When we experience overwhelm, trauma, and loss, our experience in our bodies and minds can feel unpredictable, scary, or foreign. I offer therapy that aims to collaborate with you to restore an inner sense of safety, peace and agency. I believe therapy is about creating enough safety to stretch beyond what is familiar into a place of thriving. I will assist you to identify and change any trauma-related patterns and beliefs that constrict your ability to live fully, and help you to develop your capacity for self-compassion and acceptance.

I have received additional training and experience working with clients who have the following issues: Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD); Drugs and Alcohol Addiction; Domestic Violence; Sexual Abuse ; and Emotional Focused Therapy (EFT) for couples.
Welcome. If you are feeling lost, struggling, overwhelmed or currently facing a painfully difficult time, I can help. Experiencing emotional pain and struggling with life issues are part of the process of living. Yet, when we find ourselves stuck in patterns, situations, or relationships that continue to be painful, we ask “Why can’t things be better?” or “What is wrong with me?” and eventually “Can I ever feel happy?” Often these are the issues that propel us to seek therapy. Emotional pain can show up as anger, fear, grief, confusion, anxiety, exhaustion, procrastination, etc. I believe, for change to occur, safety, empathy and respect are essential. I have come to experience an increasing sense of sacredness about our work together. It often takes courage to walk through the therapist’s door for the first time. As healing begins, I am reminded of the resiliency and courage of the human spirit.

My primary interest is helping male survivors of childhood sexual abuse , though I work with a wide range of people dealing with depression, anxiety, trauma, relationship difficulties, self-esteem, and phase of life challenges.
What is most important in therapy is that you feel deeply supported and understood. Finding a therapist who shares your LGBTQ+ identity is one less obstacle to being understood. My approach to therapy is collaborative and interactive, where we work together to reach your goals in a safe and supportive environment. Together we can find new ways to uncover your strengths and resources and make changes that leave you more balanced, happy, and authentic. My style is warm and curious and I seek to create relationships attuned to each client.

Are people constantly telling you to 'chill out' and you're thinking 'That'd be great! But how?!" It's not like there's a user's manual for emotions and you just missed the memo, so what do you do when you feel confused or overwhelmed? Most of us have tried to deal with our emotions through trial and error or attempted to follow vague advice from well-meaning friends. If you find yourself struggling against anxiety, depression, or stuck in repeating patterns, therapy could be the guide you're looking for and your path toward health and happiness.
