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.

My belief is in whole heart healing...that is, healing of the mind, body and soul. I believe that people have the tools to help heal themselves, but with all of the toxic energy that is around us, those tools get buried or are forgotten. I like to see myself as a conduit for the person's change, evolution and healing. The way I work with clients is to help them find those tools within themselves-teach them new ways to use them in order to become healthy and stay healthy. I work with couples and individuals with a focus on women and women's issues.

You've probably already tried to figure out how to feel better. Sick of being told that you're "too sensitive" or "overreacting," you're exhausted by how emotions and memories reach out and grab you, ripping you from your best efforts at stability. The effects of trauma, including high levels of anxiety, may make you wish you could simply just get rid of your emotions. It doesn't seem to matter how smart you are or how great a problem-solver you are in other areas of your life. The end result is that you're discouraged. I offer a collaborative approach with interventions that work. Come work with me and find hope and change.

I ground my therapeutic work on supporting person’s inherent strive to change and grow, as well as on potential to heal and adapt. My relational approach to therapy is based on discovering personal or relational wants, needs, and traumas, as well as improvement and stabilization of interpersonal connections. I support my clients in exploring the benefits of nurturing the wholesomeness of personhood in aspects of emotionality, physicality, spirituality and intellectuality, including examining perfectionism, ineffective behaviors, learning skills to manage difficult situations, tolerating discomfort, self-regulation, and self-care.

Starting therapy is a challenging decision as we typically feel that we should manage things on our own. However, you realize that your symptoms are worsening. You may notice that it's interfering with your performance at school/work. You are having more difficulties getting out of bed and/or you may be overwhelmed by everything going on. You start realizing that now you are avoiding the things you used to do because it gives you temporary relief from your anxiety. I would like to help you explore the underlying causes and provide you with tools to enjoy what's important to you.

Female Therapists

Does it matter what gender my therapist is?

In general, this is not an important factor, as there is no relationship between a therapist’s gender and their efficacy. Some clients, however, prefer to see therapists of a particular gender, whether due to their own past experiences with men and women, or ingrained beliefs about how people of different genders think and behave. Exploring the roots of such preferences and considering what one wants to address in therapy can help someone determine whether their therapist’s gender truly matters to them.

Should I see a female therapist?

Many people—not just women—prefer to see a female therapist, either because they believe that a woman will be able to relate to their specific challenges (for example, sexism in the workplace) or because they imagine feeling more comfortable disclosing sensitive information to a woman. Such beliefs may not turn out to be accurate, however, and adhering too rigidly to a gender preference can at times hinder a client from finding the best therapeutic match.

Do therapists get specific training to help with women’s concerns?

Therapists are trained to provide care to clients of any gender. However, some therapists—both men and women—may pursue additional training in feminist therapy, gender-specific issues, or women’s mental health. Female clients may wish to ask prospective therapists whether they have received specific training in the client’s primary area(s) of concern, or whether they have worked extensively with women on issues similar to their own.

How can I inquire about a therapist’s experience in treating women?

It’s OK—even encouraged!—to ask a therapist directly whether and how often they have treated women in the past, or whether they have treated women dealing with the client’s most prominent concern(s). Competent therapists will be happy to share their educational background, preferred treatment modalities, and prior client experience to help an individual find the therapist best suited to their needs.
