There are moments in time when things don’t make sense, when relationships are “off”, or when we feel stuck. I am here to create a space for you to move towards a place of healing, wholeness, and flourishing. I’d be honored to partner with you on your journey.

I use aspects of psychodynamics, cognitive behavior, attachment, mindfulness, family systems and interpersonal theories to create an accepting and nonjudgmental space.
* TELETHERAPY PROVIDED AT A SLIDING SCALE* The self can be the source of much mystery and turmoil. Unexpected life events, interpersonal troubles, and difficult transitions can leave you feeling lost. Sometimes we can lean on our community and other resources, but it can be tough to find a safe space to explore our true needs and feelings. In a world where everybody has an opinion, an unbiased perspective can be hard to find. Therapy can be a transformative experience of acknowledging Self and finding a higher level of functioning.

Do you wish your family communicated more effectively, your kids would respect you and your rules, or you could get your teen to open up to you?

This challenging time may be creating disruption in your life as well as awakening awareness of problematic patterns and pain from the past. So often our frustrations and emotional pain are rooted in parts of ourselves of which we are largely unaware. You may feel stuck in patterns of bad relationships, loss of identity, or lacking meaning in life, even when you know you want to break free. You may be defined by your job or family role, but what else are you? What is missing in your life from not knowing all that you really are?

I am experienced in providing therapy for children and families, teens, adult individuals, and couples.
Our relationships are the greatest treasures we have in life. When we feel disconnected in our relationship with ourselves and others, we are more prone to experiencing isolation, dysfunction and pain. While our pain can be a great teacher, feeling stuck and alone on the journey of life can feel hopeless at times. My goal is to walk with you through the healing process and support you in restoring life in your relationship with yourself and others. With a holistic approach to therapy, addressing the needs of the body, mind and soul are vital for restoring connection as we walk together through the healing process.
