One of the most critical components of effective therapy is developing a connection with your therapist. My top priority is making people feel comfortable in sessions and working towards achieving the different goals they have for therapy. My clients are able to share their thoughts and experiences through a non-judgmental and safe environment that I strive to cultivate. I often hear people in therapy say “I don’t know what to do. My anxiety is controlling my life.” Others have said, “My depression is so debilitating” or “I just need someone to talk to because I feel my relationships are spiraling out of control.

Thank you for stopping here - My work is focused on those whose lives are impacted by medical situations and the caregivers of loved ones that face life-altering or chronic illness. I help my clients gently explore the stress they are facing and find better ways of coping with the changes that their bodies and lives go through. Together we explore the trauma of chronic or life threatening illness, honoring the deep desires, exposing the fears and finding the courage to make self affirming choices. Through the healing relationship my clients learn to navigate the process of self-discovery and self-acceptance.

As a psychotherapist, I have been profoundly touched by survivors of trauma, particularly extreme trauma, ritual abuse, clergy abuse, spiritual abuse, mind control, and illness trauma. Trauma survivors started coming to me over 30 years ago. Though at first I had little understanding of what they had gone through, I recognized they were just normal people who had endured abnormal, extremely difficult situations. Those first few clients patiently persisted with me and taught me. I am humbled that they trusted me. As they shared their stories and hearts and we persevered, I learned more and more, and they got better and stronger.

Alleviating symptoms of emotional distress (such as anxiety or depression) is only the 1st stage of healing. Once people heal, they automatically start to expand their perspective on what they truly desire to be fulfilled. I help my clients to gain more fulfillment by empowering them to develop intuition into their own healing and fulfillment needs. My mission is to help people use emotional challenges as insight for self-growth and evolution. My holistic approach shows people how to get more Balance, Connection and Trust in themselves and life path in order to heal from the past, open to presence and reinvent their future.

Are you experiencing anxiety, depression, parenting difficulties, chronic stress, life transitions or the effects of trauma? Would you like psychotherapy to be a collaborative process, where we determine a personalized approach to our work together? I typically blend insight-oriented therapy to deepen self-understanding, mindfulness practices to cultivate awareness and compassion, cognitive-behavioral interventions for symptom relief, and mind-body medicine for regulating the nervous system. With specialized training in yoga and meditation, I enjoy interweaving Western clinical psychology with Eastern yoga and mindfulness-based practices for a holistic, strengths based, mind-body approach to health and well being.

Pain is an unavoidable and a necessary part of life. But suffering -- especially prolonged, "punishing" suffering -- is not. So many people seeking therapy suffer from anxiety, depression, difficulties in relationships, and self-sabotaging behaviors. We use defenses to avoid our emotions. Ironically emotions aren't the SOURCE of pain but in fact are there to HELP us HEAL from the painful losses, hurts and challenges of life. You don't come to therapy to talk about your week. You come for relief from your suffering, for a chance to work through and find meaning in your pain and, just as with a broken bone, heal stronger and better!
