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.

How did you decide it was time to look for a therapist? It’s usually emotional pain - anxiety, sadness/depression, grief, relationship problems - that brings you here. And addressing the source of that pain is the start of our journey. We’d begin with a 15/20 minute phone call where you lay out what you’re dealing with and I give you some sense of how we would begin to tackle it. Most therapists offer this and it’s a really solid way to feel into whether you want to work with someone. I have seen over and over that the pain that brings someone to therapy - if you work with it - is actually a gift.

I specialize in working with individual adults, children, adolescents, and families using somatic methods that increase awareness of the body in the present moment. These methods allow past experiences that remain "stuck," within us to be contacted in the present and internal states can begin to shift. "Stories," or habitual patterns, that keep us from experiencing optimal well-being are interrupted and replaced with new possibilities. Somatic methods are effective in addressing a variety of treatment needs such as trauma, anxiety, depression as well as challenges with children and in families.
