"Are you ready for a positive change? Tired of doing the same thing and expecting different results? While we cannot change our past, or our genetic predispositions, we can learn to change the way we respond and react to our emotions and triggers; in order to give them less power and control in our lives. Learning about your unique experiences, needs and goals, and responding with caring and empathy, I will walk with you in exploring the barriers that you feel are hindering you, and provide therapeutic support, counseling and tools to help you acheive your goals."

"I am a therapist working primarily with women. My clients often describe feeling anxious and burdened by the expectations of others, overwhelmed by school or the work/life balance, or unsatisfied with relationships. Some clients are wondering about the right time to start a family, others have experienced a challenging road in trying to start their family Mothers I work with tell me they feel as though they've lost themselves in caring for their growing family, they've lost their connection with those closest to them, and often times their symptoms of Postpartum Depression or Anxiety are sucking the joy out of motherhood."

"My goal is to connect you with the hope, passion, strength, and skills you need to thrive. Life can be a challenge when your emotions are in the driver's seat. What others find to be simple tasks can turn into a daily struggle, and long-term goals may feel out of reach. Together, we will work on creating tools for you to feel empowered to get up every morning and RISE. If you or your child have emotions that take control and command many aspects of daily living, I have help to offer."

"Each of us has a story. Stories shape our behaviors, thoughts and emotions, and influence how we form relationships, feel about life and ourselves. Sometimes, we hide parts of our stories to feel safe and lessen hurt. Over time, these missing parts can take root and cause suffering, leaving us drained, anxious, angry, depressed or just empty. I believe therapy is an opportunity to discover and make use of the healing power of our stories. Unearthing and reclaiming lost parts dissolves them of their power over us, alleviates our suffering and allows us to live a happier, more authentic life."

From a psychodynamic lens, I create a supportive environment for my clients based on trust and connection. Growth becomes possible when we have the opportunity to reflect and gain insight in a non-judgmental setting. From this space we can begin to integrate aspects of ourselves that have been neglected due to challenging or painful experiences."

In order to accomplish this many people need to resolve the inhibitions that betray their strengths. Because each person is unique, there can be no set formula for helping people find solutions and pursue their goals. As a therapist I focus on the particular circumstances presented, and help construct personalized goals by carefully and non-judgmentally attending to what is being presented and responding in a direct, supportive, and interactive manner, always from an empathic perspective."

"All human beings are capable of meaningful and lasting transformation. All of us, regardless of whether we are 6 or 60, can use our minds to change our brains to change our minds to... well, you get the picture. This is thanks to a phenomenon called "neuroplasticity." Neuroplasticity says that neurons that fire together wire together. Through the intentional development of new skills for choosing healthier thoughts and responses to life's challenges, we can actually change the structure of our brains. This gradual transformation of our neurology allows us to restructure our lives to eliminate needless suffering."
