After nearly 4 decades of providing counseling to individuals and couples, I am skilled at immediately grasping the issues that undermine a sense of well being.
Effective psychotherapy should provide an immediate benefit and relief from the first meeting forward. It is the therapist's responsibility to help you see your problems clearly. We are all subject to misperceptions and self-deception. My job is to introduce you to the self that is just outside of your awareness. Through the exploration of your attitudes, communication style, and your defenses, I will help you to significantly reduce your anxiety, anger & depression. Together we will address the issues of shame & guilt that derail your self acceptance. I will guide you to genuine change that is not just possible but attainable.

I have worked with a variety of individuals and couples, adolescents and adults for 25+ years.
Living a life that feels true to ourselves may take additional support and understanding. Sometimes life becomes overwhelming, either because we are faced with trauma, loss, illness and other transitions, or because we are experiencing unexplained feelings that are keeping us in a stuck place. I would like to work together with you to help you better understand yourself and create the changes that you want to see in your life. My style is relational and authentic. I want you to feel supported and better able to become who you want to be. I use mindfulness and CBT when helpful.

I help individuals, couples, adolescents and families create necessary and meaningful changes in their lives, relationships, or with family members.
AUTHENTICITY, ALIVENESS, and CONNECTION are vital ingredients to living a healthy and meaningful life. Unfortunately these qualities do not always receive the proper attention needed to thrive. As a result, we develop coping strategies that often lead us to not getting what we want in life, leaving us feeling stuck, anxious, depressed, and hopeless. Therapy provides a unique opportunity to explore the unconscious patterns that keep us stuck. Therapy can help you make meaningful change to live the life you wish and to create the relationships you long for.

I work with couples and individuals that are curious and motivated to identify the barriers that keep them from flourishing in life and relationships.
My clients want fulfilling and connected relationships, ones in which their needs are responded to with compassion and care. When disconnection or conflict threatens a relationship, we naturally fight, freeze, or withdraw in an attempt to protect ourselves and the relationship bond. Despite our best intentions, we find ourselves more disconnected, hurt, and confused. I understand this cycle. I am here to help couples and individuals at all stages of relationship: early stages to prevent future problems, during or after a life transition, and those needing help to resolve perpetual conflict and increase security in relationship.

As a Somatic Psychotherapist, I work with clients (individuals, couples, youth, or families) with consideration of how the stress you're experiencing is showing up in your body, and between you and your loved ones.
Do you feel lost? Disconnected from yourself? Like you're just not "you" anymore or you're not sure who you are now? Maybe you are in an abusive relationship, just left one, or have undergone a traumatic event or major life transition. You need help rediscovering and reconnecting with yourself. You might feel disappointed with what your life looks like and where you are at. Depression and anxiety have taken the forefront in your life and you want a way back to feeling like yourself, a way back to feeling healthy and interested in life again.

I utilize a collaborative and mindful approach that is compassion focused and trauma informed to help you find healing. I hold psychotherapy as space for you to pursue wholeness and flourish in your life. I recognize the intrapsychic trauma that stems from issues of systemic oppression through racism, sexism, ableism, and other forms of structural violence. I am a queer friendly LGBTQIA+ affirming therapist. Through my experience working with individuals diagnosed with severe eating disorders and comorbid clinical issues, I am attuned to how western patriarchal culture creates shame and consequential body dysmorphia.

What if we begin with the assumption that you were born to be happy, loved, prosperous and at peace? Sounds good... but then why do I hurt? Why do I struggle? Why are the inevitable changes so hard to accept? Therapy can often serve to identify the barriers to happiness and emotional well-being. Simply identifying beliefs and practices at the center of any emotional turmoil can empower you to begin living a life that you deserve.

We all know life can be hard... And we don’t have to do it alone. I work with couples and individuals ranging in issues of anxiety, depression, grief/loss, self esteem, relationships, and parenting. My own painful experiences, and the work I have done to heal, have afforded me the ability to be present and sit with people in their own pain. I have a natural inclination to seek out deep connection with people which informs my work with clients. This can help my clients to deepen connections with others, outside of the room. I work with couples to strengthen connection, deepen intimacy, and find their voice within the partnership.

I specialize in individual therapy with adults undergoing life adjustments, couples, parents, families and adolescents.
Sometimes, we can use our existing support systems and coping skills to manage difficult periods in our lives. Other times, we need to carve out the space to gain perspective, learn new skills and change our ways of relating to ourselves and each other. My goal as a therapist is to reduce distress by helping my clients see themselves, their environment and their relationships clearly, identify both positive and negative behavioral/coping patterns as they arise, and make thoughtful choices accordingly.

As humans, we are brilliantly complex, wired for connection, attachment, and survival. Our experience of joy and suffering are innately human and are connected to our physical and emotional wellness--inseparable realms. In somatic psychotherapy we hold space for the body to have a language of its own, honoring what it has to say, so that we may more clearly see what is beneath the surface. As a somatic psychotherapist, I am a collaborator, guide and mirror, supporting you in increasing your own sense of exploration of conscious and unconscious patterns of behaviors, beliefs, body signals and cues.

I have a particular passion for working with couples to help them address conflicts such as communication, sexuality (LGBTQ), sexual trauma, anxiety, past relationship trauma, lack of intimacy, coping skills, relationship transitions, polyamory, infidelity, depression, and emotional regulation.
I believe that healing can come from numerous sources, but one of the most powerful is through interpersonal connections. In my work, I provide a space for vulnerability and understanding that allows these connections to foster change. Therapy is like an objective mirror that reflects thoughts, feelings, and emotions. Through this mirror, you can begin to see a clearer picture of yourself, so much so, that eventually you can carry that image outside of the therapy room and be happy and confident in what you see. I believe to have this image, you must strengthen yourself and the relationships that are in it.
