"We are hard-wired for connection and so I focus on couple, family and individual relationships. At their best, our close relationships feel like home - safe and secure places where joy and support abound. When relationships feel strained, or you’ve lost a sense of safety and stability, we struggle. In your partnership, you may be experiencing disconnection, repetitive fights, mistrust, infidelity, lack of intimacy, or loss of emotional connection. In my work with couples, I connect with each of your perspectives, working as a translator for your emotional needs and hurts, and helping you heal any fractures of trust or old wounds."

"Pregnancy or newborns may bring about feelings of worry combined with increased anxiety or depression. There could be intrusive thoughts or repeated patterns of behaviors that feel like OCD that is difficult to manage alone. Hormonal changes during pregnancy and postpartum could foster mood swings, increased irritability, difficulty sleeping, sadness, and anger. It may be overwhelming at times and feel as if there is no way out. I work with parents and young adults who are new to adulting. College and work are difficult. I have an extensive and broad range of clinical experience working with parents, individuals and families."

"We all face challenges and often times the most difficult thing is knowing when and how to ask for help. You are because you have taken that brave step. I am here to support you and collaborate with you to figure out what wellness and wholeness can look like for you. As an art therapist, I believe the creative process offers a unique avenue for exploring and complementing talk therapy. Sometimes it is difficult to put our experiences and feelings into words and it is helpful to have another way to express them. You do not need to have any artistic skills, just an openness and curiosity to learn more about yourself."

It might sound like a no-brainer, but the relationship between you and your therapist is the most important aspect of success. You wouldn't talk with someone you didn't like or didn't trust and tell them your most hurtful, vulnerable, or embarrassing moments, would you? Some therapists have the skills to be awesome but forget that you are a person and not a diagnosis and don't fit a mold just because you feel a certain way. Does this "click" with you?
