Some techniques I utilize include: Somatic Experiencing, CBT, Humanistic Psychology, Buddhist Psychology and Mindfulness training.
My journey as a Clinical Social Worker has encompassed 30+ years of practice. I have had the privilege to work with children and families as well as with adults in a variety of different settings. I have a strong background in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and expertise working with trauma survivors and with those who have experienced vicarious traumatization. My approach can best be described as integrative and holistic. This means that I rely upon various psycho-therapeutic methods and evidence-based models that are combined to create a personalized approach to our work together.

Sometimes in life we can feel lost, misguided, anxious, stuck or even desperate. We find ourselves repeating patterns, doing the same things over and over again, coming up short of opportunities and solutions in regard to our problems. Often times, this is due to limited belief systems instilled upon us, or through the experience of fears, injustice and a need to simply catch our breath. Are you ready to focus on growth, health, fulfillment and recognizing your higher purpose and true potential? Let's release these perceived limitations, ignite passion, heal old wounds, fulfill the option of being true to self and make that change.

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 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.

Do you love someone who has an addiction? Have you recently lost someone close to you? Are you coming to terms with the effects of an affair or having relationship difficulties? Addiction, infidelity, grief, and loss are things that many of us struggle with and during these times it can be easy to lose sight of what we need or what makes our lives have meaning. I have found that acceptance, gratitude, and building resilience help us through our most trying times. Having done this work at many important junctures in my life, I offer my assistance to those who are going through these and other difficult life transitions.

*What is Therapeutic* is for you to define, and RE-define – and is not limited to sit-downs to "discuss problems." In its essence the word problem means "question," so just an openness-to-inquiry can be a healing pathway. Our worlds (and hopefully we) are constantly changing yet it's rare that we're overtly made ready to move, or flow, with these outer/inner shifts. We now know that a flexible mind serves our ability to function well, and that resilience and compassion are **skills** to be cultivated. Good counsel can help you dig deeply into your questions, your habitual patterns and your strengths to allow you more "room" to live.
