Are you concerned for your children in an ongoing high conflict divorce or another highly distressing situation? I consult, support, offer parent/child coping strategies to prevent longterm effects of severe stress & trauma for children/affected others. Even the youngest can demonstrate remarkable resilience.

We co-create more accurate thinking, safer, more healthy relationships, make space for more realistic understanding, provide predictability, constancy, enhanced trust, explore feelings, support emotional regulation, form new, hope-filled stories to replace frightening, traumatic ones.

Forrest Gump may have said it best, "Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you're gonna get." So... how do we cope with what we 'get'? Or -- how do we change it up if need be? Here you may be at a crossroads. Maybe you need help navigating intense emotions, relationships or loss. Maybe covid-life has hit you hard. Therapy can help with many of life's challenges; even help to restore a sense of joy and curiosity; agency and ability. Together we can build understanding and cultivate a sense of balance that is beneficial for you and your relationships.

I work with adults struggling with low motivation and/or grappling with feelings of inadequacy, loneliness, people pleasing, and irritability. Some have suffered through a great deal of disappointments in life and can't find the level of fulfillment that they deeply wish for. I also have a keen interest in working with people with high sensitivity, and those who wish to deepen their understanding of childhood experiences or trauma. Whatever feelings, or symptoms, you are struggling with, they DO serve a purpose. They are unconscious but adaptive methods to communicate something important about your life. Let's discover what it is.

I believe that healing happens with an integration of our minds, bodies, and spirits. Coming from a holistic background, philosophy, and lifestyle, this integration is focused upon in your therapeutic work. In supporting each person to express their authentic selves, needs, and desires, I utilize several therapeutic modalities. Some of these modalities include Expressive Arts, Body-Oriented Psychotherapy, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Humanistic Centered, EMDR, EFT, IFS, and Mindfulness. I am also trained in Brief Therapy methods for those who want support with a specific challenge or prefer therapy in small pieces at a time.

What type of Saratoga mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Saratoga?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
