"Therapy is a place for inquiry and finding meaning. Whether you are hoping to better understand your relationship patterns, process past and/or ongoing trauma, explore shifts in your identity, make a difficult decision or choose your next step(s), I bring a curious and warm presence to your exploration. The intersection of your various identities are fundamental to your connections to self and others, thus, I consider power and privilege and the social location(s) of each individual as I work to understand your path towards healing.

"Rejection Hurts–in both personal and workplace relationships. Let’s work together to overcome its impact on you. •Does miscommunication lead to misunderstandings, hurt feelings and taking things personally? •Does feeling rejected turn into self-blaming and self-rejection in a flash? Would you like to manage this? •Are you ‘filling in the blanks’ with your own assumptions? •Is resentment growing to where there’s barely room for connection or intimacy? •Would you benefit from practicing respectfully direct communication and checking-out skills? •And if you are ADHD, then most likely you know the power of rejection sensitivity."

"I take a holistic approach to therapy with children, teens and individual adults, looking deeply into the interplay between mind, body and spirit. I work collaboratively with clients to explore socio-cultural considerations, how we fit or don't fit in that context and our opportunities for growth. We'll sort through to find and examine unconscious patterns and get creative to generate alternatives that put you more in line with your goals and life purpose. If you don't know what those are, we'll figure that out too."

"When it's an uphill battle to just manage anxiety, low self-worth or impulsive self-sabotaging habits around the edges, it’s probably time to find a happier you. In working together, clients often they feel more confidant, self-accepting and effective in their lives and relationships. In session they feel really "gotten." I put my whole self into their shoes, as if I'm right there with them. They feel supported and cared for. Also, I use some effective "tools" to help cement changes into the emotional centers of their brain where emotions, impulses and habits are rooted. Straight talk therapy doesn't seem to anchor changes as well. "

"I specialize in helping individuals and couples transform obsessive thoughts, harmful/addictive behaviors, and unhealthy patterns into a serene, fulfilling life with repaired, satisfying relationships. Therapy can actually be fun! Especially as one establishes more fulfilling ways of being with oneself and others, and learns to hear, trust and act upon one's own inner guidance. Changing old, limiting patterns takes courage, and having a therapist with the right blend of compassion, insight and humor can be a valuable ally on the road to transformation."

You may have suffered traumas or losses and are wondering how these shape your thoughts, feelings and relationships. Maybe you simply have a sense that aspects of your life are not coming together in the ways you desire.
