I use an integrative approach to help my clients work through: anxiety, depression, family/relationship issues, grief, life transitions, inhibitions in work or creativity, and managing chronic illness.
Are you struggling to identify what you need? Are you in transition or wanting to make a change? Do you feel stuck repeating the same day over and over again? Do you often find yourself unsatisfied in your relationships? Do hurts and disappointments from the past continue to bother you? I am dedicated to empowering my clients to make the meaningful changes needed to move towards their goals and the life they want. My clients gain self-confidence, self-knowledge, and an enhanced capacity to connect with others.

I work with individuals facing depression, chronic illness, anxiety, guilt, grief/loss, or who have endured physical, emotional or spiritual trauma.
My practice is rooted in the belief that there is power in knowing and telling your own story. Who are you? Where did you come from? What's important to you? Let's work together to untangle your story, identify your strengths, goals, passions, and barriers; and make you the author of what comes next. I work with people who want to make positive changes, but feel paralyzed by stress, fear, indecision, or old habits. I can also help you learn concrete strategies for managing uncomfortable thoughts, emotions, transitions, health conditions or problematic relationships.

In addition to the treatment of trauma, vicarious trauma and dissociation, I specialize in working with attachment based interpersonal issues, life transitions, acute and chronic illness, and grief and loss.
Unresolved childhood issues provide recurring challenges in adulthood and may show up in the form of sadness, worry, relationship problems, substance abuse or poor self-esteem. For adults abused as children, complex trauma may leave one with panic, obsessive thoughts, self-harming behaviors, or mood disorders. Sometimes individuals are given many diagnoses and medications and end up in therapies that do not resolve their underlying issue. Dissociative processes go unrecognized in many therapies, resulting in treatment that may not resolve the underlying problem, leaving one symptomatic. In my professional experience most individuals change and grow through a successful therapeutic encounter.

Therapy is one of few spaces that is dedicated to you and YOUR experiences. It is a non-judgmental space where you can explore issues that have gotten in the way of living with greater ease and comfort. Only you are the keeper of your truth and your story. I can support you in exploring how to hold difficult feelings in more helpful ways whether they be worry, shame, hurt, or pride. What would it be like to increase your emotional buoyancy as you create a path to healing and deeper self-knowledge? What kind of life might that give you?

You may be coping with chronic illness, or life-limiting illness, or someone important to you has died. You might be concerned about 'burdening' your loved ones with the depth and breadth of your grief. Maybe you are feeling extra irritable, or have trouble concentrating, or remembering things, or you have new body pains. The sadness may feel unbearable, but you still find moments of contentment and wonder if those will come more often again. You want to know what your grief trajectory will look like. You want to feel there is something on the other side of this.
