I work collaboratively to address shame and traumas resulting from abuse, neglect, erasure, and power imbalances, including invisible/marginalized identities, moral injury and more existential matters.
Working with individuals who are aware that they need healing or to reconcile their many pieces is a passion of mine. Adjusting to parenthood, exploring race, class, spirituality or issues of sexuality, or struggling to balance work with all of the other stressors of life -- including unresolved traumas that you were forced to ignore in order to function -- deserves attention. Clients do not need to understand all the feelings they have or why they have them when they walk into the office. They just have to want the better life they have always deserved. Third Culture Kids and micro-minorities welcome. We will create context.

My approach to helping is providing you a safe place to discuss issues affecting your relationships, work, and emotional well-being. Often times we are unaware of how much responsibility and commitments we carry that we do not have time to take care of ourselves until we are sick, resentful or overwhelmed, feeling powerless. I am a direct, compassionate and supportive listener. My goal is to assist you in identifying areas to relieve pressure or problems in your life.

Fulfilling our potential is a lifelong journey of becoming more at peace with ourselves, deepening the intimacy in our relationships, being more authentically human, and feeling more alive each day. Along the way, certain challenges arise to cause us distress or confusion. Such moments can make us feel held back, afraid, or unsure of where to go from here. But these moments can also be the points of growth and healing from which we renew ourselves in ways we did not think possible.

Therapy is a place to get the support you need to move forward and discover new meaning, joy, and honesty in your relationships. While I tend to focus on the here and now of life’s obstacles, during therapy, we will likely explore past patterns and incorporate mindfulness to help you feel more in control in the future.
