Sometimes life is just hard; it hurts and things just don’t seem fair or right. Perhaps you are experiencing loss, a struggle, dealing with grief, setbacks in life, feelings of sadness or despair, anxious or just unsure of how to cope. Life feels upside down. While such feelings are difficult and real, pain and growth in life can coexist. What is most important is, today you have taken a positive first step seeking support. You have made a choice to do something different with your life. Our mind, which means our thinking, our brain and our body serve as indicators of what's working or not. Thinking gets stuck or we miss signals.

We all need support to walk through our lives with purpose, power, and joy. It takes bravery to seek support, so welcome to the threshold of change. I work with children, adults, and families using play-based and trauma-informed therapy to support reflection, growth, and recovery. Together we can address behavioral issues, stressful transitions like divorce, grief, adoption, and birth, and the conflicts of identity. Using evidence-based strategies, I partner with adults, teens, and children across a spectrum of diagnoses and life experiences to remove barriers and build strengths.

As a psychodynamic and attachment oriented therapist, I believe that the foundation of therapeutic treatment is a safe and supportive relationship between therapist and client. The process of treatment often uses the therapeutic relationship itself to uncover relational patterns from earlier in life that may be causing pain or dysfunction in the present day. By identifying the historical antecedent to a seemingly confusing or inappropriate emotional response, client and therapist are able to disrupt maladaptive patterns and choose new, more values congruent responses.

I view my work as helping people find new ways of relating. This includes how we relate to thoughts -- turning the volume down when they're too noisy, or listening carefully for new meaning in whatever you just said out loud. It can include accepting emotions despite having the urge to escape them. And it can include how we relate to people -- learning to speak directly about what we need despite how vulnerable it makes us feel, or choosing to hold back when normally we would rush in and share too much.

We often navigate emotional concerns but have difficulty naming and expressing them. Therapy can help clients gain clarity, learn healthy ways to express emotions, and cope with difficult emotions and circumstances. I offer a safe, supportive resource where clients no longer feel alone. Your feelings are valid and deserving of the care and attention that we sometimes fail to place as high priority in our busy lives.

You don't have to struggle alone in your difficulties. You can access encouragement and strength to live well. I offer a safe harbor and secure relationship for you to discuss your needs and problems. I enjoy working with people who feel stuck in negative situations or relationships, but feel puzzled about how to improve or change them. Collaboratively, we solve problems and/or rework the patterns that perpetuate the negative situations. We would explore any contributions of the past to the present so you can detach from the old patterns. Eventually, you will feel freer and more empowered to make desired choices in life.

Rather than just feeling better, my focus is on helping you live better and meet life's challenges with greater ease.
