Anxiety and depression impact your work, relationships, and personal goals. But with support, it is completely possible to feel better and manage these often-debilitating symptoms. I specialize in assisting adults with anxiety/depression to manage their symptoms and reduce the impact they have on their lives. This includes women who suffer from cyclical anxiety, depression, or anger in relation to their menstrual cycles (aka PMS/PMDD.)

I believe that the process of growth and healing requires a unique kind of strength and courage. My approach to therapy begins with creating a space of acceptance, honesty and respect where clients can feel safe to step into self-exploration and take risks in order to build self-awareness and create meaningful change in their lives. I am passionate about working with adolescents and adults dealing with all types of eating, mood and anxiety disorders, as well as clients struggling with non-suicidal self-injury, trauma, and issues related to relationships, identity development, body image, spirituality and self-esteem.

I believe that everyone does the best that they can with the tools that they have, but sometimes approaches that have served them in the past are no longer effective and they can get stuck in a rut. If you are feeling stuck in parts of your life, you have come to the right place! I am passionate about working with adults and emerging adults with diverse identities in a broad range of life circumstances. I have experience working in community mental health and college counseling settings with individuals across the lifespan.

I recognize the uniqueness of each person, couple, adolescent, and family. It is my goal to provide a safe and nurturing environment where one’s true self is free to be expressed. I believe in the power of the therapeutic relationship which can be curative in itself, which is why it is important to me to bring my most genuine self in order to have an authentic experience in session with my clients. Once the foundation has been set, I build on that relationship and incorporate counseling skills and techniques to gently guide and challenge my clients to help them to meet their therapeutic goals.

These are some surreal and unprecedented times that we are all living in right now. It seems that every day some other tragedy or stressor seems to be added to the heaping mound of stressors we already are dealing with on a daily basis. There is so much of the "unknown" out there and I think we all need help from others, especially now. I believe the ideal healing environment is one where you feel safe, respected, supported and valued. I work very hard to create this kind of space, especially as we are first getting to know each other. I also believe firmly that you are the expert on your own life.

My approach is holistic and strengths based. I draw on a variety of approaches including EMDR, mindfulness, family systems, psychodynamic, and stress reduction techniques. I am skilled at helping people identify how their past is affecting the present and healing these memories which often results in new levels of peace and calmness. My training as a pastoral counselor has also equipped me to work with people who want to address spiritual concerns and questions. I have significant cross cultural experience from life in Kenya and Central America and I relate naturally and warmly to people of any culture or background.

I believe the goal of therapy is to help individuals live their most authentic and fulfilling lives. This includes exploring themselves, their relationships to others, and their place in the world. Within the context of a safe and non-judgmental therapeutic relationship, individuals can develop self-awareness and identify patterns they desire to change. Using empathy, direct feedback, and skill building, I believe individuals can heal, grow, and enjoy their lives more fully. I practice using an integrative approach grounded in psychodynamic and relational theories as well as incorporating mindfulness techniques.

Happy relationships and solid self-esteem are the foundations of psychological and emotional well-being, while disharmony, worries, and unhappiness signal that we need to experience new ways to effectively express feelings and enact aspirations in our lives. I strive to provide an inviting and nonjudgmental therapeutic context to empower clients to find satisfying ways to address concerns.

They may have issues with relationships (familial, friendships or love), difficulty balancing obligations, challenges with stress or anxiety, self-esteem issues or depressive tendencies. They may be struggling with relationship, thought and/or behavioral patterns that may have once been functional but are no longer serving them. My goal for all of my clients is to help guide them to let go of old "stuff" and give them tools to create a more positive "next chapter" in their lives.
