I have experience working with teens/young adults, veterans, clergy, trauma, families, athletes, entertainers/models, students, and LGBTQIA +.
Therapy does not have to be boring, hard, or last years, I have heard from my clients that they enjoy coming to therapy and it was not like what they thought it would be. It's okay to laugh, talk, and generally have a good time while working on difficult complex situations and issues. You will be able to make necessary changes in your life by getting techniques, tools, skills, and guidance to achieve your obtainable goals. You will walk out of a session with a skill or two that you can go home and start using immediately. While any given technique doesn't work for everyone, I'll be sure to give you the tools specific for you.

My primary focus as a counselor is in working with stressed out moms, gifted and LGBT adolescents, and the families who look they have it all together but feel like they are falling apart.
Sometimes the families that look perfect on the outside struggle behind closed doors. Moms are grappling to make picture-perfect Pinterest parties for kids who barely speak to them, make sure her parents can still live independently, connect to husbands who are trying to succeed amid the stresses of work, all while surpassing expectations at the office. It's hard to explain to your teenager why they should have to work for their trip to Europe because it builds "character", in a Kardashian society.

I work a lot with issues such as depression, anxiety, grief and LGBTQIA issues.
You don't know why, but you just don't feel like yourself anymore. You feel depressed, you can't focus, you are anxious or wanting to isolate yourself. You don't know when it started but something is not right and your life is not like it used to be. What would your life be like if you had a greater understanding and better tools for coping with and managing your emotions? What would your relationships be like if you had a deeper awareness of yourself and improved strategies for communicating with your loved ones?

I respect all people, including members of the LGBTQ community.
I won't judge, talk to you in phony psychobabble, or give up. I am about authenticity, insight, and empowerment. There are utilities inside of us that lead us toward growth. Sometimes we lose sight of our own capacities. I am good at helping people use those utilities to take charge of their lives. Life should not be about coping; it should be about possibilities!

I am also an ally of LGBTQI, Transgender , Sex Workers, Polyamorous, Pagan, and Vegan persons.
As a therapist and yoga instructor, I combine counseling with mindfulness for stress, anxiety, and depression. I assist you in deeply understanding your suffering and uncovering inner strength through acceptance and choice, while cultivating compassion for yourself and others. Mindfulness helps us recognize emotional and physical experiences, while awareness of breath creates space to become more response-able. This develops healthy responses to stress, anxiety, and depression. It also improves our ability to communicate and be in relationship with others.
