I see people as having rich, complex human emotions that are not well described with overly simple and often stigmatizing diagnostic labels like depression or generalized anxiety. Each person is entirely unique, with their own history, strengths, and challenges. In therapy, I will work with you to better understand yourself. When we can understand why you might be feeling or thinking or acting in a way that is not best for you, we can work together to change it in a way that is tailored to your needs and your circumstances.

I am Jungian-oriented, with EMDR. I have an engaged, relational approach, grounded in modern research on the brain, trauma and attachment. I believe the goal of therapy is to realistically become who you truly are--not to fix you, or tell you how to be. If you work with me, we'll look at your personal, family and cultural history, and the beliefs you hold about yourself and the world. Where we find traumas, disturbing memories, negative beliefs and uncomfortable feelings, we can use a variety of methods to loosen then, learn from them and heal them, including SE and EMDR.

I draw on the immense resources of the body-- its rich wisdom to support the cultivation of mindful presence, internal resource, gentle self inquiry/guidance and embodiment. Creating space for you to listen to your voice and inner experience allows for both depth and breath of understanding, as well as authentic expression and acceptance.

You may long to live wholeheartedly - and to feel loved and connected - but struggle with anger, depression, loneliness, or inexplicable sadness and anxiety. You may find the stress of work, life, running a household, or parenting has diminished your capacity to feel joy and be creative. Once a source of comfort and pleasure, your intimate relationship may now be disappointing, frustrating, or even deadening. Therapy can help relieve the symptoms of debilitating feelings by uncovering the underlying (and sometimes unconscious) causes, and empower individuals - and couples - to become the authors of the lives they want to live.

It can be healing to share your story with someone who truly listens, empathizes, and validates. Someone who can relate objectively and non-judgmentally. Someone who can hold space for and tolerate all emotions, even those that seem intense, overwhelming, and scary. It can be life-changing simply to have a space and time once a week that is just for and about you. A space that is safe and welcomes all aspects of who you are, even those that you feel you can’t show to anyone else. A space that honors imperfection and encourages humanity. A space in which you aren’t alone.

Bilingual, Culturally Sensitive, Trauma-informed, Relational Psychotherapy. I believe that engaging in therapy is an act of courage because change is by definition radical. An important goal of therapy is to connect to your authentic/creative self as a way to make meaning in times of suffering. Together we will explore your personal, family, cultural, and political history to understand the ways in which your experiences shape how you feel in the world. Whether you are struggling with life transitions, finding/keeping good relationships, or trying to integrate different identities, our work can help you find some sense of cohesion.

Therapy might be a way for you to travel to yourself. It might provide you with new eyes for looking at an old image. And with the possible feeling that there is a way to let your guard down, untie your knots, and create new patterns. You might also find freedom in the cultivation of a wider and more balanced scale of emotions that includes joy, ire, sadness, rapture, and many more. Therapy might also show you that in addition to enduring life, you might also be fully alive.

I believe the most difficult thing is often accepting all of ourselves and our experiences. When we reject ourselves, this can lead to feelings of not being good enough, feeling inadequate, comparing ourselves to others and coming up short, feeling anxious, depressed, and ashamed of oneself. These feelings can lead someone to become a perfectionist, an overachiever, attempt to make their body into the ideal shape/weight, or escape painful feelings through alcohol, drugs, food, or other means.
