You look around, the common culture doesn't reflect your ethnicity, gender expression, ability, or sexual orientation. You don't fit into a neat little box. The stress of not fitting in, or having to explain or feel guilty for who you are has taken over. Is this how it's gonna be for the rest of my life? - you wonder...and it makes you tired. My clients come to me to overcome doubt, build confidence. I use techniques to help them slow down and listen to their inner voice so it's so loud and clear that anxiety has no room to stay.

So often self-work involves degrees of correction and vigilance that can actually make you feel less connected to yourself. You want to better understand yourself and your relationships so that you can feel more whole and authentic. You are curious how your past connects to your present problems, and why certain narratives repeat themselves. You want interpersonal interactions to feel less complicated at work, at home, and with friends. You are tired of trying so hard to analyze and figure out your part in these relationships to no avail. You want to find the right solution, but in doing so end up feeling isolated.

I work with adults in their 20s, 30s, and early 40s who are feeling stuck or unfulfilled and can’t pinpoint why. Often my clients are dealing with big life transitions, such as a career change, relationship beginnings or dissolutions, or new parenthood. The first few decades of adulthood are an exciting time of self-discovery and building the life you want to live. But they can also be stressful and overwhelming. I’m here to help people have confidence in themselves and their decisions.

As a person originally trained in psychodynamics, I care greatly about the experiences and relationships that have shaped you. I am currently perusing more training in Jungian/depth psychology, which means I am greatly interested in the unconscious and how it reveals itself through dreams, spontaneous visions and creative endeavors. Of primary focus, in my work with clients, is the therapeutic relationship. It is here that our patterns of relating often reveal themselves. Through the safe container of therapy, I invite my clients into new ways of being that invite more creativity, flexibility and deeper relationships.

As a creative professional in the flow, it’s easy to take creativity, passion, and aliveness for granted. But what happens when anxiety, perfectionism, and self-doubt stop you in your tracks? Suddenly it’s hard to find your flow, you lose confidence, and the mounting pressure to get back on your feet only makes it worse. Whether your goal is to overcome creative blocks and burnout, sustain your energy while "in the spotlight", or strengthen your personal and professional boundaries, together we can develop the inner resources you need to lead a more embodied life.

I have been working with clients for ten years, helping them make significant changes in their lives. I work with depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, self-judgement, family and relationship issues, marriage and sexuality, past trauma and spirituality. There are many things in life that can be difficult, and I help people see and understand the meaning and purpose in their experiences. I believe that change comes from awareness. If you cant see what is causing you suffering, you cannot tend to it. I help you know yourself and your circumstances so that you can feel empowered as opposed to victimized by life.
