Are you the person who has it all and you’re still not happy? You’ve done everything right but you cannot fully enjoy the life you’ve worked so hard for? Or maybe you keep doing something you can’t stop yourself from doing, even though you’ve tried. I specialize in helping highly-motivated individuals reach their full potential emotionally to achieve life-encompassing success. And yes, it is possible to reach your goals in half the time of typical talk-therapy. Why waste time in a subpar emotional state when you could really feel happy?

You’re supposed to be an expert in your field, but you certainly don’t feel like it. You try your hardest, but you still feel like an imposter. The worst part? You just know others can see right through the pretending despite your efforts to maintain the appearance that everything is just fine. The voice in your head tells you how you’re not enough. You look through Instagram and wonder how everyone else has it together. You’re juggling too many projects because you can’t say “No.” You know you need help but aren’t sure where to begin. You wish you could find a way to just relax, let go of the worry, and embrace the present moment

If unresolved trauma has left you feeling alone and helpless in a threatening world, or if the catastrophic predictions of anxiety have kept you immobilized, I can help. Using a holistic approach that addresses the mind (our thoughts/beliefs), the emotions, and the body. I work with clients to recognize and embrace the present moment as a safe place from which to connect with others, explore and take risks, and move their lives forward. You’ll learn to regulate your response to triggers, detach from self-defeating core beliefs, and utilize grounding and mindfulness techniques to find the lightness and relief you’ve been seeking.

You may have a sense that something needs to change because the way you have been doing things isn't working, despite perhaps years of great effort. You may be completely exhausted, physically, mentally, or emotionally. You might be achieving success, academically or professionally, yet struggling in your daily life. Mundane tasks such as shopping, doing the dishes or paying the bills may feel impossible. And navigating relationships at work or with friends and partners might be confusing or too complicated. You may act okay, saying, "I'm fine." But inside, you aren't.

Trauma has impacted every relationship in your life. You have struggled to connect with others around you and you feel like it’s your fault, like there is something wrong with you. You’re often angry, anxious, confused, overwhelmed, sad and frequently shut down and disconnected. You know you can’t keep living like this, but you don’t know where to turn. You feel like you’re the only person experiencing your struggles, but you’re not! While it’s often hard to ask for help or to even know how, therapy can be enormously helpful and gratifying.

Are you unsettled with a super hero cape that is weighing you down? Do you look like you have it all together, but you're secretly dealing with issues? Are you the one that people turn to for help with their problems, but you are to afraid or embarrassed to ask for help yourself? ​It is very easy to become consumed with trying to have it all, pretending to be okay, and putting others first. Unfortunately, the sacrifice of neglecting yourself, carrying emotional baggage from unaddressed pain, trauma, anger, and unhappiness, can lead to you feeling depleted physically, financially and mentally.

But taking the first step in supporting your child is the most important one. In order to best help your child, a comprehensive psychological evaluation may be beneficial. Whether to better understand your child's strengths and weaknesses or to assist in treatment planning, early identification can reduce and prevent long-term negative outcomes. I specialize in the assessment of and treatment planning for children ranging from early childhood through early adulthood to help families better support their child.

I strive to provide an open safe space with no judgement to discuss thoughts, feelings and behaviors with the intention of creating opportunities for change. These changes may be practiced and adjusted as needed to find a solution that fits the unique person that is you. If one is trying to make a change and has a slip aka "blip in the radar of life". We do not start all over, we look at what was learned with curiosity and start again where we are in the process. This is a shame and blame free zone. We are all works in progress.

Are you someone who struggles to ask for help? Many times, we try to brute force our way through our day-to-day lives even if we are in distress or in need to speak with someone about how we are feeling. Sometimes we can allow shame or self-judgements to get in the way of talking about difficult symptoms or emotions with a professional. Being able to disclose and talk about these issues with someone who makes you feel safe and validated is so important. The process of disclosing may be uncomfortable at times, but it is not unbearable, so long as you have the proper clinician by your side!

Female Therapists

Does it matter what gender my therapist is?

In general, this is not an important factor, as there is no relationship between a therapist’s gender and their efficacy. Some clients, however, prefer to see therapists of a particular gender, whether due to their own past experiences with men and women, or ingrained beliefs about how people of different genders think and behave. Exploring the roots of such preferences and considering what one wants to address in therapy can help someone determine whether their therapist’s gender truly matters to them.

Should I see a female therapist?

Many people—not just women—prefer to see a female therapist, either because they believe that a woman will be able to relate to their specific challenges (for example, sexism in the workplace) or because they imagine feeling more comfortable disclosing sensitive information to a woman. Such beliefs may not turn out to be accurate, however, and adhering too rigidly to a gender preference can at times hinder a client from finding the best therapeutic match.

Do therapists get specific training to help with women’s concerns?

Therapists are trained to provide care to clients of any gender. However, some therapists—both men and women—may pursue additional training in feminist therapy, gender-specific issues, or women’s mental health. Female clients may wish to ask prospective therapists whether they have received specific training in the client’s primary area(s) of concern, or whether they have worked extensively with women on issues similar to their own.

How can I inquire about a therapist’s experience in treating women?

It’s OK—even encouraged!—to ask a therapist directly whether and how often they have treated women in the past, or whether they have treated women dealing with the client’s most prominent concern(s). Competent therapists will be happy to share their educational background, preferred treatment modalities, and prior client experience to help an individual find the therapist best suited to their needs.
