"Emotional problems can be difficult to cope with and resolve alone. Whether you have experienced a painful loss, are suffering from anxiety or depression, are feeling stifled in your relationships, or cannot seem to reach your goals, the help of an experienced professional can assist you in initiating the changes that will allow you to lead a more satisfying life. Understanding your emotional life is essential to your personal and professional well being. We use to have this top-down notion that reason was superior to emotion. However, recent research clearly shows that we think better when we know and can process our emotions."

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.

"Choosing a therapist can be intimidating, especially for people of color. We might find ourselves wondering if our therapist will "get" what it's like to be us. I believe each person, couple, and family brings with them a set of unique experiences, values, and goals, often influenced by various cultural factors. Perhaps you are an individual looking for a safe space to explore your identity, including race, ethnicity, and gender. Maybe you are in a cross-cultural relationship and want help navigating tricky topics productively. It could be your family is in conflict around generational differences and opposing values."

I love working with couples looking to rekindle their fire or make it burn brighter, and also with individuals looking to deepen their understanding of their own sexuality and in turn become an even better lover and partner. Dating, foreplay, and exploration of fantasies are just a few exciting areas of my work.

Anxiety, depression, self-esteem problems, relational issues, substance abuse, grief, and spiritual inquiry are some of the reasons people come to my office. I am skilled in helping them heal and resolve issues. Equally important, however, is the discovery of one's unique and unknown self.

With body oriented therapy, we will explore not only your thoughts and emotions, but also the physical sensations, postures, and gestures that come with them. This is important because tuning into your body can help you understand your feelings, thoughts, and life experiences more deeply. This understanding can support you in being the person you want to be and creating the life you want to have. The first step to change is becoming aware of how you are feeling, thinking, and being now. "
