I work with women navigating the path to motherhood, including pregnancy and the postpartum period. I believe our past relationship experiences offer emotional clues that can illuminate current interpersonal patterns, and I help clients uncover this insight in a way that can lead to long-term change. In a fast-paced culture where spoken conversations are beginning to fade away; psychotherapy remains a place where clients can speak their narratives aloud, using psychotherapy as a healing opportunity to have their stories witnessed.

Building a healthy relationship in therapy is not only essential to immediate goals, but is a skill that patients take away for use with on-going problem-solving.

Do you feel stuck? Many people begin psychotherapy because they feel something is "off". They are dissatisfied, but unclear about what they want; they feel that "something is missing," but they're not sure what it is. Others begin psychotherapy because they find themselves repeatedly cycling through unhealthy relationship patterns and they want to change. Additionally, we all have traumas and woundings within us, to varying degrees. Psychotherapy can help untangle these knots and move you through suffering and pain towards greater health, integration, wholeness, vitality, and well-being.

My clients struggle with depression, anxiety, loneliness, relationship challenges, questions around life direction, life purpose, personal identity. Often they report feeling "stuck," frustrated in their creative expression or in their ability to change or move forward in their lives. I try to look at each individual's strengths (ask how we can build upon those), and also look at where a person is getting in his or her own way.

Psychotherapy provides a unique space for you to explore your experience in life in a profoundly important way. In a culture that does not make space for "negative emotions", and idealizes independence, there is little room to get to know the parts of ourselves that we imagine others will not approve of. When we aren't in touch with all aspects of our humanity, effectively shutting out parts of our experience, we can find ourselves feeling confused, depressed and/or anxious, having trouble in relationships with others, not enjoying our work, having difficulty processing grief and loss, or struggling with issues related to our identity.

I see therapy as collaborative. If you’re ready to put in the work necessary for change, you’ve come to the right place. If the following sounds like you, feel free to reach out to me now: You know what you want to change in your life; you realize that a commitment to change means that most of the work is going to be on your end; and you're ready to trust in someone to partner with you.

Beginning in childhood and continuing throughout the lifespan, relationships are the foundation of our emotional experience. Our behaviors, thoughts, and emotions have a layered history, constantly being influenced, altered, or reinforced through what learn from and experience with others. At times we may feel stuck.

You want to interact with another person, not talk to a "wall". You want to share vulnerable feelings and embarrassing stories without feeling judged. Most importantly, whether you're laughing or crying, you want to feel comfortable being yourself.
