I have specialized in working with families of aging or chronically ill patients, specifically patients with dementia and brain injury. I work with the caregiver to help them negotiate through the stress of caring for a loved one with a chronic illness such as Alzheimer's disease. In addition to my practice focus, I enjoy working with adults seeking to improve their quality of life and are willing to do the work it takes to accomplish that.

Welcome to my profile! I'm so glad you are here. My passion is helping people with life transitions. Many of my clients are young adults, seeking support with their journey into adulthood. Perhaps you feel pressure "to keep up" and find yourself constantly comparing the way you look, feel and act to those around you. You may feel pulled in many directions such as career, relationships, and family. I can help you clarify your goals and priorities. I also enjoy supporting women and couples during pregnancy and the early stages of parenthood, helping sort through what they feel they "should" be feeling/doing versus their reality.

I am always curious about what brings clients into psychotherapy at a particular juncture of their lives and what they are hoping to be different as a result of conversations with someone like me. Once the responses to this curiosity are articulated and there is a clear purpose and direction for therapy, I listen for what a client already knows and what the client strengths and personal resources currently are and what they have been in the past. This becomes the context for conversations which have the possibility of leading toward preferred changes in the client's life and in its direction.

I work hard to ensure that my clients feel safe and supported throughout this process. By creating a comfortable and lighthearted environment, individuals, families, and couples are able to gain some reprieve from the difficulties they are experiencing. This allows change to begin to occur in the lives of my clients.

Unresolved trauma leaves us feeling broken, damaged and disconnected from our true selves. You may be fed up with how trauma or PTSD is impacting your life, feeling discouraged and possibly even exhausted with how much energy it takes to cope on a daily basis. You might not even remember a time when things didn't feel this way. But one thing is for sure: you're ready for some relief. You're ready to find hope and healing. You're ready to find your own personal worth and value. Most of all you're ready to be transformed body, mind and spirit!

My goal as your therapist is to help you find healthy ways to engage in life and use your strengths to help understand, uncover, and dismantle what is creating anxiety, depression and other emotional concerns you may find yourself living with. Therapy can help to create an environment to move through the process of self-discovery and self-awareness in a safe way. The treatments I work with have proven to be effective, including psychodynamic psychotherapy, mindfulness therapy, and EMDR.
