About

Life can be hard but I'm guessing you already knew that.  All the hard stuff can leave us feeling overwhelmed, frustrated, or sad. Sometimes life's challenges become too difficult to overcome alone. Finding a safe and collaborative place to explore and address what is troubling you is the first step toward healing.  Perhaps you are struggling with anxiety, depression, grief, or challenges within a relationship. While there are no guarantees of what you will experience in therapy, research shows that therapy helps people. It works. Psychotherapy can elevate feelings of self worth, purpose, and improve your overall quality of life.
I provide a supportive, nonjudgmental relationship that doesn't lose sight of your strengths. As an integrative psychotherapist, I have knowledge in a wide variety of therapeutic modalities including evidence-based practices like CBT, Somatic Experiencing, Brain-Spotting and EMDR.
I incorporate psychodynamic and attachment theory to help you gain awareness of patterns from your past that affect your life in the present. Together we can work on cultivating self-awareness and insights that can foster a more peaceful life.
