Life can be complicated, overwhelming and unpredictable at times. These pressures and demands can be chaotic and cause one to feel anxious, inadequate, depressed, or stuck. These very feelings can impact our functioning, relationships with others and how we view ourselves. While we cannot change the nature of things, we can change how we react. With practice, we can learn how to manage life’s challenges by developing resilience, and learning healthy coping strategies. Therapy is a gift to the self. When we develop a deeper understanding, we have the power to change, find our voice and not let life just happen.

My role as a psychotherapist is to accompany people on their courageous journeys of healing, discovery, and self-expression. I enjoy working with individuals who are curious and inspired to take their inner work seriously. I believe that the narratives we tell about ourselves hold tremendous power and that, through our work together, we can become more conscious of how these stories shape our lives in order to find opportunities for new understanding and meaning making. As a depth psychotherapist, I have reverence for the wisdom of psyche, the unconscious, to help guide us to explore parts of ourselves in order to become more whole.

I am an interactive therapist. I help clients attain their therapy goals more quickly by taking an active role, rather than simply mirroring their feelings, which I also do. I focus primarily on mind/body connections, however, my overall approach is creative and eclectic. In therapy we explore the past, finding connections to current patterns that cause pain and dysfunction; then work on bringing the client's life into balance. I have many years working in business, schools and private practice, working with depression, anxiety, panic, PTSD, addictions, bereavement, relationship problems, occupational stresses, at-risk adolescents and marital problems.

Life throws us obstacles every day. Sometimes we are able to overcome them on our own. Other times however, it is harder to move through them without support. When life becomes overwhelming & there seems like nowhere else to turn, therapy can be a helpful option. To some, therapy seems scary, uncomfortable, strange, or even stigmatizing. But overall, it takes courage to seek help or to make a change. I have training, education, & experience working with a range of psychological issues including depression, anxiety, substance abuse, compulsive behaviors, & addiction.

My approach is an integrated one, primarily influenced by attachment theory, contemporary relational psychoanalysis, emotional regulation, mind-body integration and mindfulness.

The thought about talking to a stranger about what’s going on is terrifying. When the process involves an honest conversation about symptoms, family problems, and addiction or other “shameful” family secrets, it can keep anyone from healing. You were taught to keep it to yourself and not cause trouble. To not air family secrets and that emotions are dramatic and useless. Especially the biggest of all- grief. There is nobody that gets to escape grief in this process. It's a myth that any of it has to be painful or overwhelming. And struggling with feelings or needing to heal doesn't make you weak.Nobody taught you how to do this.
