Have you had a recent difficult or traumatic life experience that you can't recover from on your own? Did you grow up in a chaotic home where it felt hard to be seen or get your needs met? You may have felt an underlying anxiety and not enough soothing due to issues beyond your control. If you struggle in your current relationships and seem to experience too many painful feelings like fear, anger, sadness, shame, or guilt you probably have unresolved trauma, even if it doesn't seem to match your idea of what that is. I can help you overcome these damaging experiences and negative feelings so that you can feel more at peace inside.

Finding the right therapist can be overwhelming. It takes a lot of strength to begin the process of therapy and I applaud you for taking the first step. Entering into a therapeutic relationship is all about building trust. I provide a relaxed, non-judgmental, and compassionate atmosphere in which you can safely explore your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. I truly want to get to know who you are and how we can work together to reach your goals, work on changing behaviors that are no longer suiting your needs, and modify unhealthy thinking styles.

Is your mother driving you crazy? Do you feel guilty for disliking her? Is she so full of herself that you feel there is no room for you? Are you struggling with the pain associated with your relationship with her? You feel terrible that you can't seem to get it right. Maybe you even blame yourself for the relationship not being what you wish it was and think you can fix it. For years I have been helping women unravel complicated and painful mother-daughter conflicts, which often involve maternal narcissism.

To others, it seems like you have it all. But underneath lives a different story. Despite your outward success, you feel haunted sometimes by feelings of failure, conflict, self-doubt. At certain moments, a gnawing sense overcomes you, telling you: Something is not right. You've made changes but somehow still end up in the same unsatisfying patterns, repeating the same unhelpful behaviors -- feeling more and more alone. You want to understand your patterns and your past so you can create a different future. You want to learn to feel differently about yourself and how you relate with others. You want to find a different way.

I see therapy as an opportunity for self discovery, healing and a safe space to move towards our growing edges. My approach is mindfulness based and collaborative. Together we can explore the narratives and relational patterns that may be getting in the way of our personal growth or intimacy with other. Through a somatic approach (integration of mind-heart-body), we arrive into a more empowered and embodied sense of being.
