I'm a psychotherapist, relationship specialist, wife and mom. Many of us can recognize patterns of our behavior that used to be helpful but now get in the way in the relationships we want. In many ways navigating difficult circumstances allowed us to survive or even thrive, but the ways we cope now don’t benefit us in the long run. These interactions can surprise us at times because while our lives can feel full and abundant, we also can feel sadness, resentment, and worry.

Relationships are important to all of us. We live out our lives in the context of relationships with others and with ourselves. When there is conflict in these relationships, we might be left feeling lost or frustrated and not know what to do. It takes a lot of courage to reach out for help, but together we can explore your relationships to find clarity. Taking the time to listen to your hopes, dreams and desires without judgment is essential for transformation in these relationships. As a therapist, I mainly work using talk therapy, but also use sandtray and art therapy as other modes of exploration and as a path to healing.

Welcome! If you have found your way here, you may be feeling a little "stuck." The stress of everyday life can be difficult. Past trauma may be negatively impacting your self-esteem or familial, work, peer, and/or romantic relationships. In our efforts to please others we can sometimes we lose touch with ourselves, or don't feel entitled to having our own needs met. You might be struggling with issues around identity and self-worth, or want to change unhealthy and frustrating patterns of communication. Boundary issues and a lack of self-care can leave you feeling depleted.

Watch, I'll show you - I couple evidenced-based treatments, wellness perspectives, Eastern theories, a conscious awareness approach - geared towards creating intrinsic & extrinsic progress. Your progress may include improved relationships, increased motivation, stronger sense of self-value, greater career & academic success, a reduction of painful & distressful emotions/unwanted behaviors. Full Disclosure: my therapy style is very assertive. I'll say things like "Yes, your feelings are valid - & so?" "That doesn't mean they serve you".
