I utilize a trauma-informed approach and integrate Cognitive Behavioral, Somatic, Mindfulness, Emotionally Focused , Psychodynamic and Experiential therapies.
I believe the connection you have with your therapist is essential to having a positive experience in therapy. People seek therapy for many reasons. You notice feeling sad, stressed, worried or overwhelmed; you experienced a traumatic event or a great loss; you are trying to change certain patterns in your life; you want more fulfilling relationships. Whether I am working with individuals, couples or families, I am empathic, collaborative, and provide suggestions and feedback in a safe, respectful and supportive environment.

If you're feeling stuck and experiencing symptoms such as anxiety, depression, body tension, avoidance, or shut down, trauma may be to blame. As a certified EMDR therapist and student of Somatic Experiencing, I am highly trained to treat and facilitate healing the impact of trauma. Processing material stored in the body from unresolved little t (smaller incidents) and big T (more obvious traumatic experiences) allows stuck stress to release from from the body, providing relief from symptoms. I am confident in my ability to help. Reach out to set up a consult so we can see if we are a good fit for each other!

Are you someone who becomes easily overwhelmed by emotion? Imagine being able to prevent these feelings from taking over your life. While this goal may currently feel out of reach, therapy can help. There are ways to change thought patterns, enabling us to better cope with overwhelming feelings. Through learning how to sit with uncomfortable emotions rather than relying on maladaptive coping skills, we can take our power back. I help clients overcome a variety of issues including (but not limited to) anxiety, life transitions, relational struggles, identity issues, body-image/self-esteem concerns, and grief.

Life is full of various transitions, both expected and unexpected. One can feel pushed to deny or resist these inevitable changes or can begin to take steps to learn, adapt, and adjust to them. I believe everyone has inner strengths that can be awakened in challenging times and therapy can work as a catalyst for change. I have been privileged to journey with individuals who learned to envision their desired lives and to find ways to fulfill them. I have also journeyed with those managing seemingly insurmountable challenges, steadily guiding them toward finding peace in the midst of challenges and eventually overcoming them.

I believe that nothing is set in stone, and that solutions are within reach when looking for relief from anxiety, self doubt, depression and a general sense of overwhelm. I help you pay attention to the inner strengths that you already possess, as well as become aware of any thoughts & behavior patterns that might be blocking the very changes you want. With my guidance, you can build a more effective skill set for making those changes so you feel calmer, more capable, and more content.

Accessing a sense of belonging in your life can be difficult when trauma creeps up from previous experiences. It is normal to feel confused and overwhelmed when triggers seem to limit our options. This often results in experiencing an increase in anxiety, depression, addiction behaviors, self-defeating beliefs, or a sense of hopelessness. These are symptoms that develop when parts of us are left unknown or are misunderstood. You are not alone. Help is available, and you have taken the first step. To find a good fit, I recommend contacting several therapists in order to see who resonates with you and your specific needs.

At different times in our lives we can feel stuck and struggle to find our way. We also live in a world that tends to make us feel abnormal if we aren’t happy, yet happiness can be elusive. I approach my work by meeting you where you are and assisting you on the journey of where you want to go. I collaborate with you to help you gain a better understanding of your true nature, your authentic self. The therapeutic process may include exploring the passages of your life; how emotions may limit your possibilities; and how the therapeutic relationship may deepen insight, improve coping skills and expand opportunities.

Therapy is a process of self discovery that helps you understand yourself and resolve difficulties in relationships with others. I have been working with adults, teenagers, families and couples for over 30 years. I treat depression, anxiety, and relationship difficulties. I work with many couples.

I am very easy to talk to. I provide a safe, non-judgmental atmosphere that enhances positive change and increased self-esteem.

With over twenty years experience in LGBTQ counseling, research, and teaching, I have a deep understanding of our community. Among LGBTQ individuals anxiety and depression may involve feelings of emptiness, relationship problems, interpersonal sensitivity, or addictions. The roots of these struggles can vary, but it helps to have a therapist who grasps the alienating impact of growing up in a world that disavows the core of who we are. I will help you address these issues, and others, through a deeper approach that can feel energizing, challenging, and even liberating.

Kids in our communities today are stressed. Major social issues from racial and environmental injustice to economic precarity cast a daily shadow over their lives. The social dislocation and isolation of the pandemic has made a difficult situation worse. This situation has led to an epidemic of anxiety and depression among young people. More subtly it has also led to feelings of fragility and powerlessness even among kids who are “doing well”. Parents, themselves stressed out, overworked, and far from their families of origin want to help but don’t know how.

I help individuals to identify undesirable patterns of behavior that do not serve them and address the roots of these issues in order to increase self-agency and overcome emotional blocks. I also enjoy facilitating creative people in realizing their fuller potential and authenticity. Whether you are seeking a safe place to be heard and process feelings, a desire for greater self-awareness, or to access deeper sources of creativity, we will work together to set goals and understand the underlying issues that inform current life complications. I approach each session with empathy, compassion and practicality.

Life can be painful and difficult. Intimate relationships can be particularly challenging if you don't have the communication skills needed to express your feelings and resolve conflicts effectively. This can lead to anger, resentment, fear and loneliness. Over time, intimacy and sexual connection will often suffer due to these feelings. Therapy can help you sort through and understand the challenges you're facing, and identify solutions that work for you. With the proper support, things can get better.

Let us have a conversation about YOU without skipping the difficult issues due to the shame that society has attached to them: your body, your sexuality, your desires, your darkest fantasies, your weaknesses, your fears, your disappointments, your failures, and everything that makes you human. Be prepared to be received in an accepting space that would allow your organic self to come into being which will pave the way for self discovery and living authentically. To know and become one's authentic self is the key to a life well-lived.

Personal growth and overcoming emotional and mental challenges can feel like immovable obstacles. These obstacles may be related to work, family, intimate relationships, societal and cultural pressures, discrimination, racism or other traumas. The challenges can cause several symptoms like anxiety, sadness, isolation, anger, rage, defensiveness or low self-esteem. Unfortunately, not everyone was afforded the opportunity to learn healthy coping skills to manage these symptoms, nor how to recognize or recover from them. Furthermore, discussing personal challenges may have been forbidden or discouraged, especially outside of the home.

Emotionally Focused Therapists
Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is an approach to therapy that helps clients identify their emotions, learn to explore and experience them, to understand them and then to manage them. Emotionally Focused Therapy embraces the idea that emotions can be changed, first by arriving at or 'living' the maladaptive emotion (e.g. loss, fear or shame) in session, and then learning to transform it. Emotionally Focused Therapy for couples seeks to break the negative emotion cycles within relationships, emphasizing the importance of the attachment bond between couples, and how nurturing of the attachment bonds and an empathetic understanding of each others emotions can break the cycles.
