I help individuals and couples work through issues related to depression, anxiety, shame, insomnia, fatigue, illness, interpersonal challenges and trauma. I honor diversity in my practice and approach the therapist-client relationship with compassion, openness, safety and even humor. I am trained in Buddhist meditation, Medical Chi Kung, Kaiut Yoga, Somatic Experiencing, Attachment and Adoption issues and Feeding Your Demons. I believe that we are all inherently healthy and that with support and the right approach, healing is always possible.
I believe everyone has the ability to live a joyful life, have fulfilling relationships and experience wellness. Through building a trusting relationship, years of experience and proven modalities, long term changes become a reality! I work with individuals and couples addressing challenges including: depression, anxiety, trauma, relationship difficulties, disordered eating, low self esteem. I utilize practices of: mindfulness, somatic/body centered, principles of trauma resolution (neurobiology and polyvagal theory), wilderness/nature therapy, Internal Family Systems (parts work) and creative and more in our work together.
I bring experience and enthusiasm to my work with people struggling with substance abuse, addiction, depression, and anxiety. My emphasis is not only on the immediate needs of getting sober but the long-term process of learning to live life in a joyous and clear way. I utilize many techniques to achieve this including cognitive-behavioral education, skill-building, motivational interviewing, and mindfulness practices. A whole-person approach is incorporated utilizing resources such as nutrition, physical growth, and mindfulness-based modalities. My therapeutic style is both collaborative and supportive.
I believe that therapy is a collaborative process between therapist and client, and that by working together we can help you move toward understanding and healing. Your job is to be curious about yourself. Mine is to inspire and assist you in exploring the unknown, uncomfortable, and unfamiliar. I strive to kindly challenge the way people think, and to be challenged myself. I am honored when asked to be present in challenging times, and work to balance holding room for discomfort while helping you discover how to move forward. My ultimate goal is to help you heal by building upon our respect, honesty, and mindfulness.
Our minds and hearts can be overwhelming places to explore alone. Perhaps you are feeling disconnected from yourself, wanting to improve your relationships, or wanting a better understanding of yourself and why you do the things you do. If so, I may be the therapist for you. I am passionately committed to working with individuals to assist them in living a more connected, authentic, and empowered life. I provide a compassionate, non-judgmental space to encourage curiosity and growth to support you in working towards your goals.
I love working with people that are ready to explore change. Everyone gets stuck from time to time. Coming to terms with loss and pain is never easy. Loss can come in the form of actual bereavement or in through accepting difficult events or even a difficult diagnosis, If you would like to try to address your reaction to trauma, loss, or even addictive relationships to substances and activities, I would love to work with you. I have comfort and familiarity in working with bipolar disorder, ADHD, PTSD and anxiety. I hope to work with people who are seeking their highest expression of selfhood and are willing to look inside.

We all contain the inner wisdom to heal ourselves and move towards being an authentic, positive and loving person. The courage to be vulnerable -by moving toward our pain and confusion as well as our joy- utterly transforms and frees us. I am honored to enter into the sacred space of therapy together with my clients. I use an integrative, trauma informed, and strength based approach combining empathy, mindfulness, and radical acceptance as well as a plethora of therapeutic tools (ie--imagery, parts work, role play, body/somatic awareness). I have a passionate social justice orientation and am experienced in a wide breadth of issues.
Are you feeling stuck in your life, stressed out, and disconnected from yourself and others? Is there a part of you that knows there is more to your life and to your potential? You may have recently experienced a big life transition (a health, relationship, or career change) and, moving forward, you want to realign with what is truly important for you. Or perhaps this has been a longer journey of increasing dissatisfaction and you are ready to reconnect with your sense of vitality, motivation, and well-being.

Licensed Professional Counselor Candidate, MA, LPCC
My approach to counseling is strength-based, humanistic, relational, and mind/body-centered. I focus on working with the nervous system as a way to work towards emotional regulation. I work from a somatic approach with both individuals and couples. For couples I use PACT (a psycho-neurobiological approach to couples counseling).
Welcome! I am a licensed therapist and transformational coach for over 18 years and work with clients all over the world. I help individuals heal and release the pain, worry and blocks that keep them stuck, struggling, hiding and overwhelmed. Working with me, you will reclaim your best self and make the changes that will lead to the ease, enjoyment and success you desire and deserve in life, love and work. Are you feeling stuck, filled with self doubt and tired of fighting and feeling angry or anxious? I can help you navigate gracefully through difficult circumstances, heal in an integrated way and thrive.
Not everyone looking for a counselor has an understanding of what's "off" in their current experience, and that's okay. We don't always know what it is we are looking to heal from or grow through, but there's an awareness of wanting or needing that healing and growth. In my practice, I work with adolescents and adults to help identify areas of life that aren't contributing to a life well lived.
Clinical Social Work/Therapist, LCSW, LAC, EMDR, RYT
I'm guessing that in many areas of your life you are functioning quite well, even thriving. On the other hand you may be simultaneously experiencing a lack of fulfillment and a feeling of emptiness in another area(s) of your life. Symptoms of this may be anxiety, mood problems (including depression), addiction, problems in relationships or behavioral issues. You can choose the pain of stagnation or the discomfort of growth. If you choose growth, you will experience greater joy, peace, connectedness, and purpose. My purpose is to facilitate your growth and therapy is a powerful tool for your transformation.
I specialize in treating depression, anxiety, PTSD, grief, relationship challenges, spiritual crisis/development, and I coach people to help them realize their life goals, what they really want in life, work/career and relationships. I use specialized cognitive, client centered, and somatic approaches. For details please see www.newtranspersonalpsychotherapy.com
Clinical Social Work/Therapist, MSSW, LCSW, EMDR, CBT
As a therapist, my goal is to help you uncover your true potential. During times when we are overwhelmed or flooded by emotions it can be difficult to find solutions to lifes challenges. We can become frustrated by our tendency to repeat the same patterns over and over. In our therapy we will work toward establishing balance, positive coping skills and new strategies unique to your own strengths and potential. While we can't change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve challenges in your life.
Are you going through a life transition that makes you feel like there is no ground underneath your feet? Do you feel stuck in repeated unsatisfying romantic or professional relationship patterns? Together we can work on discovering your true essence, congruency and peace within and the world around. You will be a co-creator of the therapeutic process where I will guide you to the mind-body connection that will help uncover and transform conscious and unconscious schemas/beliefs driving your life.
Do you feel overwhelmed by emotions? Many of us do. We try to push them away until one day that no longer works, and then we panic. Maybe you struggle with worry, a fierce inner critic, trauma, or feeling sad or numb. Perhaps a difficult break-up or loss feels unbearable. Maybe you'd like more clarity about your feelings and how to express your emotions. If this sounds like you, I'd like to help. As painful as these times can be, there is potential for deep personal growth. I can help you find some relief from these struggles, and in the process come away with greater self-awareness, confidence and self-compassion.
SPIRITUALITY + THE NERVOUS SYSTEM | I take a mind-body-spirit approach to therapy. I believe we all have the innate capacity for healing, and by following the body's cues, it will show us how to do just that. I like to work with the nervous system: through big-T Traumas a little-t traumas, many of us are not as regulated as we could be. Reasons to work with me may include depression, anxiety, addiction, relationship difficulties, spiritual emergency, insomnia, trauma, autoimmune issues, self-esteem, clarity of purpose, and deepening connection to yourself.
