An area of focus in my practice is working with parents, couples and families in times of adjustment and transition, particularly in the early years of parenthood. Parenthood can be very demanding especially when you're trying to maintain a career and relationships with your partner, family and friends. I work with clients to give them communication tools and self-care strategies as well as increasing self-awareness and personal insight.

My work with you begins from my deep respect for the self-awareness and courage it takes to seek support. From our first session together, I aim to create an optimally safe and trusting relationship, a safe harbor in what may be tumultuous life seas. Gently but actively, I will help guide you through the places inside where you feel stuck, afraid, or are simply in too much pain to examine. In our sessions, I won't just sit back silently; my approach to therapy is warm, interactive, experiential and engaged.

In these times of drastic global change, it is completely natural to feel anxious, fearful, overwhelmed, sad, and stressed. What's most important now is that you feel supported during this time not only by your self care practice, but also by your support team. I would like to be on that support team for you. In my practice, I specialize in working with individuals or couples who are feeling anxious or depressed, individuals dealing with stress and burnout, new and expectant parents, those who are dealing with loss, issues with self worth, and people from dysfunctional family systems.

Wanting change is hard. When I started my own work, It seemed like some kind of dream that things could be even a little different. Somatic Therapy was the magic that brought me through complex trauma and back to myself, to my emotions and to the possibility for connection and joy. When I work with you, I bring my training but I also bring my whole self. I am warm, compassionate, and above all present. Coming to therapy is a radical act of bravery and trust.

The key to emotional health and happiness is nurturing the authentic self, the source of one's primary needs and feelings. When we neglect this essential task, our ability to love and work is compromised. Depression, anxiety, and compulsive behaviors are often signs of alienation from the self. In my work, I integrate psychodynamic therapy, mindfulness, and experiential techniques to help each client's real self emerge and develop. In this way, therapy can serve as a catalyst for personal transformation. It can help you overcome adversity and create a productive, satisfying life, in alignment with your deepest values.
