"Therapy is a partnership. Together, we work gently with the body, mind, and emotional experience to reduce and heal troubling symptoms. I invite into our sessions the parts of us that facilitates perceiving, thinking, sensing, feeling, remembering, imagining, expressing, connecting, and relating. I support clients to become more aware of different aspects of themselves - those aspects that support and contribute to their well-being, and those that constrain or stagnate their potential. Together, we work towards mind-body integration for renewed purpose and well-being. I offer a free 30 minute in-office consultation."

"The decision to take your child or teen to therapy is not an easy one for many parents. Perhaps your child is struggling in school, and you are dreading the next phone call to address the latest issues, or you might feel exhausted trying to figure out how to go through the daily functions without all the “meltdowns.” you have tried everything in your power to help your child, and have not seen enough improvements. You might be worrying about your teen’s emotional state, lack of communication, or defiant behavior. Many parents in these situations know that they need help, but are unsure where to start. "

"As of September 16th, I have availability for new clients. Life can be hard. With life's challenges and demands, it is easy to get drained, tired, overwhelmed and worried. You get so caught up in doing things that the world demands of you that you may forget to tune-in to yourself. Therapy is a space where you can break away from the world, allow yourself to reflect, and explore how and why you're living your life the way you are. It's where you can have good days and you can have bad days and both are completely okay and accepted. Eventually, in that space a transformation can happen."

One of my primary approaches is to address the beliefs that each person has internalized during his or her life. These beliefs direct our choices. Erroneous beliefs about self, others, and the world at large put limits on us and hold us back from healthy relations and personal empowerment. My professional commitment includes honoring my clients' diverse world views as they work toward improving their lives."

"Are you feeling distracted or overwhelmed? Perhaps you are lacking motivation and seeking clarity to connect with your passions and purpose in life, or desire more fulfilling, harmonious relationships. Maybe you’re tired of people saying you’re “too much” or “not enough” leaving you feeling not good enough or unworthy. You are not alone. Releasing old fears, anxiety, shame, guilt, and negative thoughts doesn’t have to be a painful, difficult process (deep breath!). It can be incredibly freeing, creating space and connection to a part of yourself you never knew was there. "

"You may think that big things have to change in your life in order for you to feel better and experience improvement. But I've come to believe that a key, gentle shift in perspective can bring about more positive change than many realize. That is a shift from taking a critical approach with yourself to taking a Kinder Approach. With this shift in how you approach yourself and your experiences comes greater self-awareness and feelings of confidence, hopefulness, empowerment and knowing your value. You can begin to see and feel new possibilities and choices for your life."
