The challenges of life’s situations, the loss of a loved one, underlying trauma, mental illness, substance misuse, intimate partner violence can bring on feelings of loneliness, sadness, fear, anger, desperation, hopelessness, and grief to name a few. These emotions can at times leave us feeling “not like ourselves,” overwhelmed, and out of control, thereby, interfering with our daily lives and our ability to enjoy life to the fullest. Take a moment to imagine your life without these problems.

Waitlist for new clients
Overwhelming emotions and troublesome thoughts - whether they're related to current stressors or past experiences - can be burdensome and impact the extent to which we feel fulfilled in our lives. Whether such concerns tend to come and go rather quickly or linger for longer periods of time, therapy can be a safe space to better understand them and develop healthier ways of managing them. I strive to provide such a space for my clients, and my goal is to do so with compassion and skillful treatment.

Many individuals are dealing with stressful situations with life's ever present changes. I offer assistance in goal setting and follow through. For young children and their families I use a Child-Parent Psychotherapeutic approach and can combine this with trauma work. Perinatal families can expect a deep understanding of the stages of becoming a parent and struggling.

I specialize in EMDR Therapy. Disturbing events from the past can negatively impact us in the present in many ways. Sometimes this is manifested by intrusive thoughts, flashbacks, nightmares, feelings of anger, and overall reduction in optimal functioning. EMDR helps to process these memories, decreasing and ultimately neutralizing the emotional charge. It eliminates constant unpleasant reminders and rids us of continued negative messages internalized tied to the memories. It is not possible to change what happened, but it is absolutely possible to change how you feel related to past experiences to move forward with more peace.
