You often feel like you're shouting into the wind, and no one is listening. What does it take to have your inner voice be heard and respected? It helps to get out of the echo chamber of our own heads and find someone to bounce ideas off of. This first step is truly the hardest, but it pays off quickly! Reaching out for help can be scary, and procrastination so easy to justify - but taking that first step, and resolving to change your life, starts paying off right away. When you're clear about what you're thinking and feeling - and why - it's much easier to know what to do next. Therapy can help you do that, and you won't feel alone.

Navigating life’s difficulties can be challenging, especially during this time of physical and emotional isolation. I honor all as unique individuals and value your life experiences. Prior to counseling, my background was in music where I maintained a professional position in the arts for over 20 years. I can relate to the many challenges artists face on a deeper level and I understand the pain and frustration that comes with being creative and sensitive. I value the importance of cultivating a strong therapeutic relationship so we can collaborate in finding the tools within yourself to move towards positive growth and change.

Together, we will work to gain a deep understanding of your early and lifelong relationships, in which your struggles were formed. Additionally, I ask about how social, economic, gendered and racial issues frame your pain. I integrate a basic psycho-dynamic understanding integrated with trauma techniques, body work, hypnosis and cognitive behavioral work in individual and group therapy. Group therapy adds another layer of healing possibility through the camaraderie, clarity and empathy groups provide.
