I am passionate about helping individuals, couples and families heal their lives and relationships. My approach is compassionate, supportive and hopeful. It is my belief that you are not "flawed" or lacking, but rather are constrained by burdens and beliefs that are the result of painful experiences. Together we remove those constraints so that you can experience freedom, wholeness and joy. When working with couples, my goal is to help remove constraints to intimacy and to help you and your partner create a relationship that is honest and fulfilling. Often personal healing must occur in order for this to happen.

If you are experiencing anxiety, depression, or stress related to chronic illness or pain, you may find yourself feeling a sense of powerlessness. As a caretaker of someone experiencing mental or physical challenges, you may experience relentless responsibilities, coupled with witnessing a loved one's suffering. Constant decision-making and handling emergencies may be contributing to mental exhaustion and burnout.

You know your kid is struggling, but so are you. She’s not a bad kid, but she wears you out. The school thinks she needs discipline and testing, but you feel like maybe she just needs help adjusting to life. Every time she gets in trouble at school by fighting or disrespecting adults, you wonder what you did wrong and how can you ever fix what’s broken before it’s too late. You’re losing your patience, but you also want to yell at everyone to just leave her alone; she’s still so little and she’s been through so much. You’re really trying. I hear you and I want to help.

I want to be part of your healing story. I believe that two people working together are stronger than one. I believe that most of our suffering comes from the pain around separation and disconnection and that healing and empowerment is best experienced and guided within a relational framework. I believe that the traditional or Western medical model for healing is outdated and limited and so I embrace a holistic or integrative approach to mental health. I believe that healing takes place beyond intellectual processing and that we need to integrate healing into somatic or body based processes and rewriting personal narrative.

I believe people look into getting help because they truly want to be in a better place. Everyone faces obstacles in life. Some of those obstacles are more difficult to move past than others. In order to be your best self, you must break through those obstacles. Counseling is very personal and there is no one way that counseling happens. I will work with you and your specific needs to make our sessions feel safe and productive.

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.
