My clinical practice draws from extensive training in psychotherapy that integrates a psychodynamic perspective with therapeutic interventions that match the unique needs of a client. The range of interpersonal and skill-based interventions includes an understanding of family, culture, and gender specific influences on the current issues or concerns. The use of mindfulness principles and skills provides an added support to clients for strengthening their ability to better manage stress and for overall well-being. In over two decades as a psychotherapist I have consistently found that an integrative approach is most effective for promoting the positive outcomes that my clients are seeking.

Life is full of change and the unexpected. Have you been blindsided by one of the many curveballs life can throw at you? Do you feel overwhelmed, lost, or directionless? Realigning after a huge change- be it the loss of a loved one, separation/divorce, job change, health shift, or even college graduation- can be a challenging process. I love to help people adjust, grow, and transform though these shifts, seeing the forest through the trees to come to a fuller, more centered perspective on all that life still has to offer. Finding our way back to peace can be demanding and we could all use some support in this process.

I've found that the majority of my clients are seeking to find and give volume to their inner voice. So many things can derail us from what we truly want and know we need, and feeling stuck, depressed, or anxious is often a red flag that you are pointed in a direction that doesn't feel right. Stressed relationships, a painful past, life changing events, a recent episode of anxiety and/or depression, and a number of other challenges can cause distress. It's tough to prioritize mental health, but it is worth it. I can help you find your voice.

People often say they “just-want-to-be-happy.” The question then becomes, "what does that mean?... 'Happy.'" More importantly, what does it mean for you in your life today? Our thoughts and ideas change over time, and because happiness is not a thing we 'get' – but rather something we 'experience' and is often more an ebb/flow – we are constantly able to make choices about how/when/if we experience it. Happiness is for you to define and RE-define as your own, and therapy is here to help you dig into it more deeply. You connecting with true senses of Wellbeing can become more accessible, more sustainable – and can become a Lifestyle.

Our way of live has been turned upside down. The structures of our community that ground, secure and orient us, have been hit by this pandemic. We find ourselves feeling disoriented and out of sorts. Others are grappling with not only the upending of routines caused by the pandemic but are fearing for their life or their livelihood. Whatever your situation, your life has been changed right now by something outside your control, and this is invariably stressful. And, of course, many of you were dealing with mental health issues or traumatic life events before the complication of a pandemic.

***NOT ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS AT THIS TIME*** In a time of such uncertainty, it is more important than ever to connect, feel heard, and to tune into ourselves. I use a relational approach to therapy which considers the therapeutic relationship to be transformative and healing, a vehicle for better understanding our internal world. When given the space to talk things out authentically with someone who really listens, we learn to tune into ourselves so we can move forward in a more constructive way.

My clients face a range of pressures to fit with expectations from friends, family, and coworkers. They wrestle with self-criticism, intense emotions and mood swings, and report feelings of despair. They may feel so broken down and overwhelmed that they use substances, hurt themselves, or engage in impulsive behaviors to feel better. They are intelligent and brave and struggle to balance the demands of life against a sense of hopelessness and pessimism about things feeling better.

Artful as a woodland fox, gentle as a feather. These symbols represent my therapeutic style in working with adult female clients. I believe that my role as therapist is simply to help clients uncover that which they already possess. My passion is guiding individuals inward, towards a personal sense of wholeness. I find this is achieved through techniques that connect mind, body, and spirit. As an art therapist, clients have the option to use art materials during our sessions as a form of expression in conjunction with talk therapy. The creative process often becomes a powerful tool for healing.

View problems as opportunities to release limitations, to grow and to experience more joy. Clarify your true desires; learn that you are a powerful creator - in thought, word and deed. Recognize the guidance communicated by your emotions; focus on what is wanted now; release negative thoughts, images and bio-energetic blocks; allow more joy and good into your life; resolve trauma; manage stress and balance health by attending to body, mind and spirit.
