I've found it helpful in my practice to be direct and to the point, while maintaining professional and nurturing relationships with my clients. I believe strongly in modeling healthy boundaries, and helping clients to strengthen their own. I love what I do, and I know my clients can sense that. I think my clients can also sense the great respect I have for them. Asking for help is never easy. Especially when one feels vulnerable.

"We cultivate love when we allow our most vulnerable and powerful selves to be deeply seen and known, and when we honor the spiritual connection that grows from that offering with trust, respect, kindness and affection." -Brené Brown. So often it is the sense of connection between us that leads to, or at least contributes to, our distress. As a marriage and family therapist, I believe it is important to help individuals, couples, and families to be able to connect more authentically, developing healthy boundaries which allow for a balance of connection and autonomy.

The clients who come to me are having difficulty creating the lives that they want for themselves. Sometimes this is due to trauma in their background and other times it is due to other things that are blocking their personal goals such as grief or a break-up/divorce. Clients who work best with me are ones who want to build their internal resources so that they can knowingly move forward in whatever direction they choose.

Often when people start working with me they tell me intellectually they know how to handle something but emotionally they are stuck and keep doing the same unhelpful things over and again. Other times, people come in not knowing why they feel as they do, but they just want to feel better. Initially, couples frequently report having the same problem or argument. By collaborating with my clients, I help them work through what is getting in the way of healthier functioning and relationships.

Life can be overwhelming! Sometimes we feel like we don’t measure up or fit in. We can start to feel tired and alone. Maybe we can’t seem to concentrate on work, school or other important areas of our lives. Sometimes what seems like a simple task for others makes us feel nervous and overwhelmed. A therapist is both a safety net and a guide, someone to help you discover and recover from what life throws at you. I will strive to make the time spent together a safe place for you to learn more about you, your uniqueness, and your strengths.

Do your emotions sometimes feel “bigger” than you expected? Is your inner critic sometimes the loudest voice in your head? Does perfectionism make completing tasks painful and complicated? Are stuck beliefs causing you to repeat patterns that you desperately want to stop, but you don’t know how? I can support you in unpacking these difficult questions and more, as we get to the root causes and make lasting change. Together, we’ll process the experiences that caused these beliefs, and we’ll tap into your inner strength and resilience to forge a new pathway. As a trauma-informed therapist, I support people in overcoming events in their lives that have had a significant or traumatic impact on them. Violence, neglect, loss, injury, illness, medical procedures, divorce/separation, infidelity, hurtful words from a caregiver or other loved one—any of these can leave a lasting impact. I provide a safe space in which to heal trauma. I recognize that a lot of what we call "symptoms" or "disorders" are actually resourceful and protective responses to danger, that have only become problematic as they got stuck on "autopilot"; naming them as such is an essential step toward healing.

Seeking therapy can be difficult, and I enjoy supporting people in finding their narrative and re-writing it the way they desire to fit their needs.
