No one ever said it (life, relationships, career, school) would be easy but should it be this hard? Taking the first step to explore therapy can be challenging but it can be helpful to obtain support during times of transition or difficulty. If you are still unsure, or even if you are familiar with the therapeutic process, meeting me and getting more information about how I work just takes one session, and a consultation costs you nothing.

You see yourself in the mirror and wonder when the joy left your face. Somedays it's even hard to recognize yourself. Perhaps you've become preoccupied with past wounds and don't have any energy left for today. Or maybe nervousness and worry have crept in and overshadowed everything else. Whether it's regret about yesterday, not feeling fully alive right now, or anxiety about tomorrow -- you're not living the life you imagined for yourself.

Seeking therapy is courageous and vulnerable. I strive to create safety with clients so that each person I work with is open to exploring what is going on emotionally, physically, cognitively and spiritually. Trauma and stress live in the body and, in my experience, an integrated approach is most helpful, where we pay attention to feelings, physical sensations, thoughts, behaviors and images that arise during sessions. We will work together as a team moving towards your goals, so that as you feel better, you will have more choices in your life and more freedom to become the person you want to be.

Adolescence can be a time of intense emotional struggle affecting the whole individual and those around them. Through processing the underlying issues, whether that is trauma, anxiety, depression, family dynamics, etc., clients can learn to embrace this unique time in their life to discover their self-identity and begin forming their own voice. My approach to therapy focuses on providing a safe space for adolescents to address their struggles while finding hope and meaning for their future.

The experiences and interactions we have throughout our lifetime can have an impact on our well-being, thoughts, relationships and decision making. As we begin to understand our thoughts, emotions and behaviors we may be able to face life challenges in more effective ways. At times, attempting to understand ourselves without any support can feel confusing or exhausting. In therapy sessions, I will provide you with support in a collaborative and safe space as you discuss past challenges or current stressors. Sessions are individually tailored to meet your therapy goals.

Often times we don't realize that we are living disconnected from ourselves until something big happens that knocks us off balance. We all go through struggle and challenges in our lives, and counseling can help with that. I work with client's looking to use their mind-body connection to tackle their trauma, anxiety, depression, or family challenges. As a Somatic Therapist, I have found that our body-mind connection is one of the most effective and successful ways to get in touch with the unconscious mind.

Selecting the "right" therapist can be a challenging process. I believe that the relationship between client and therapist begins with the establishment of trust and a desire to grow. I value authenticity, empathy, humor, respect for self and other, and put these values to work in session. My areas of specialty include issues surrounding sexuality and gender, sexual dysfunction, childhood and sexual trauma, the LGBTQIA+ population and those seeking purpose or deeper meaning in life. I aim to meet my clients where they are, holding space for exploration of self, empowerment for growth, and reclamation of their joy for life.
