Has being diagnosed with a chronic illness caused you to feel anxious, isolated, worried, depressed or overwhelmed? Are you having difficulty adjusting or coping with your illness? Having a chronic illness can cause a drastic change in one’s lifestyle, can interfere with employment, interpersonal relationships, and an individual’s independence. As your Coach and Therapist, I use a blend of therapy, coaching, and 30 years of medical expertise, to help you navigate the turbulent path you are on, so you can better manage your chronic illness both physically and psychologically. I believe the body has an innate ability to heal itself.

Life is full of change and the unexpected. Have you been blindsided by one of the many curveballs life can throw at you? Do you feel overwhelmed, lost, or directionless? Realigning after a huge change- be it the loss of a loved one, separation/divorce, job change, health shift, or even college graduation- can be a challenging process. I love to help people adjust, grow, and transform though these shifts, seeing the forest through the trees to come to a fuller, more centered perspective on all that life still has to offer. Finding our way back to peace can be demanding and we could all use some support in this process.

Welcome! First and foremost, I would like to congratulate you on showing up for yourself and beginning this journey of self-growth. After all, that is truly what therapy is about. I believe therapy allows us the opportunity to reflect through the different seasons of life and ultimately our relationship with ourselves. Please feel encouraged for just beginning this process and imagine what the world would be like if we all embraced healthy self-discovery. Although therapy may be viewed as counter-cultural, I encourage you to stand firm in taking care of yourself and evolving into a more authentic you.

I utilize a variety of models and evidence-based practices to assist clients, including Somatic Experiencing, Feminist Therapy, Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MSBR), Internal Family Systems ( IFS ), Gottman Method Couples Therapy, Shame Resiliency Theory, DBT.
Currently Accepting New Clients. Navigating a world that tells us how to think, how to act, what to believe, and how to look is oppressive and traumatic, and can feel disempowering and overwhelming. This can lead to feelings of shame, emptiness, hopelessness, and incongruence, as well nervous system dysregulation and distress (i.e. being in survival mode/fight or flight). I aim to heal those I work with through building resilience to shame, strengthening and regulating the nervous system, and creating a space to step into their most authentic selves. I welcome clients of any gender, sexual orientation, race, or ability.

I use a holistic approach, including Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Internal Family Systems Therapy ( IFS ), mindfulness, psychodynamic therapy and other effective modalities to help with your issues and release burdens.
Have you wondered where your life is going and found that personal difficulties have gotten in your way? My clients come to see me with issues related to depression, anxiety, trauma, relationship, children and many other issues. I see symptoms as an opportunity for growth. Therapy, like life, is a journey with definite stages. Initially, I work with the individual in talking about their life and issues of concern. The next stage involves processing and healing the stuck places. As this occurs, I see people then ready to find their resources, living into their goals, their essence, their being.

I believe that each of us already possesses the ability to live a happy and fulfilling life. With greater self-understanding, we can discover and break through barriers that hold us back, find new perspectives, and achieve new goals. I work with people who are experiencing specific challenges--such as trauma or relationship issues--as well as those who suffer from anxiety, depression, feel "stuck in a rut" or are simply interested in exploring new ways to find more fulfillment in their lives. Whatever your goal, we can work together to achieve balance and lasting change.

Finding a new therapist can be hard. I believe that the most important part of therapy is having the right fit with the right therapist. In order to be open to the process you have to feel comfortable with your provider. Therapy should be a tool to find personal strengths and develop new resources. Therapy is a good place to start looking at where you might be stuck and searching for new strategies to add to your life. I hope that I can be a part of your journey.

Sometimes, life deals us an awful hand with so many wounds and hurts that we have no idea how we'll get through. We feel sad, anxious, overwhelmed, angry, depressed and don't know how to move forward with that emotion. We find ourselves stuck in the same patterns and don't know how to change them. Frequently, our relationships struggle as a result. I believe in becoming whole and healing from these wounds and hurts. I believe each person has innate characteristics that make this healing possible. In therapy, our goal is to remove these constraints that prevent you from accessing your core Self and create a life that feels lighter.
