I have been working successfully with depression, anxiety, PTSD, somatic and body image issues since the year 2000. I work in the present moment, attentive to content, process and relational aspects of the session. Aside from talk therapy, I facilitate change through experiential exercises such as meditation, movement, body and somatic awareness, gestalt role play, EMDR and cognitive and behavioral mindfulness. I am interested in how contact boundaries can be restored and built to a healthy state, creating a stronger and confident self.

I utilize approaches from several different modalities to include but not limited to Gestalt, Narrative Therapy, Existential Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, etc.
I specialize in assisting members of the LGBTQ+ community. However, I have considerable expertise and interest in helping those suffering from a wide range of issues from mild mental health issues to severe and persistent mental illness. I believe taking the step of seeking out therapy is a positive one and one that can benefit anyone. I tailor each therapy session to the individual client as well as the therapy goals that may (and frequently do) shift while progress is made during the therapy process. I view the therapy process as a journey taken by both therapist and client.

Techniques to be utilized include deep listening, clarification, reflection, use of relaxation techniques, recognition of client strengths, emotional support, progress indicators, visualizations, body psychotherapy, gestalt, communication, and experiential exercises, hypnosis, new information, use of Myers-Briggs, games, stories, drawing activities, community outreach where indicated.
During initial sessions I gather information as to the nature of the problem and the outcome desired. Together we assess strengths, and then obstacles to be overcome, whether environmental, relational, emotional or physical. It can take a single session or a number of sessions. At this point I recommend specific therapeutic modalities to be used to support client(s) to attain their goals. For some, the process is slow and delicate, for others vigorous and brief, a place to come back to when life's crises inevitably occur. For all - an experience in discovering a larger life of Resilience and Reconnection.

Are anxiety, anger, alienation, sadness or confusion causing you to feel overwhelmed trapped or hopelessly thwarted in reaching your goals? Or do you feel a deep longing for change? The call to deepen your understanding of yourself, of others and your situation is often signaled by negative thoughts, painful feelings, or a work or relationship crisis. The opportunity to talk with someone who is accepting and takes a practical approach restores hope, rekindles desire, resolves conflict, and directs the flow of energy towards positive movement.

Overcoming mental and emotional challenges can be difficult, but even more when you feel like you are dealing with them alone. It's not always easy finding someone who's willing to listen and understands from a culturally responsive lens, especially when discussing personal challenges that have been discouraged outside of the home. Stress can come from many different avenues of life (career, family, relationships, society, and culture, etc) and can bring about depressions, anxiety, anger, isolation, and low-self esteem. It's not easy learning healthy ways to cope, managing your symptoms, and even recognizing that there's a problem.
