I provide individual, group, and couples therapy for adults. I specialize in working with anxiety, relationship challenges with family, friends, partners, etc., self esteem, and trauma. I view therapy as a collaborative process, where clients and I work together to explore themselves, understand connections between their experiences and how they think, feel, and behave, and utilize this information to create the change they want in their lives.

We are flawed. We struggle, overcome, and struggle again - such is the cycle of life. The moments of clarity and purpose are the "sweet spots'' of our life landscape. As your counselor I will help you navigate the areas of your life that become barriers to you realizing your full potential.

I pursued a career in therapy because I believe that holistic healing is possible. Taking care of your mental, emotional, physical and spiritual wellness, enables you to take care of others, and live a life of joy. With a background in the arts, storytelling, and visual media, I integrate the power of story in the narrative of your life, past present and future. Where are you right now? How has right now been impacted by your past, and what is a vision and purpose for who you want to be? What do you want your life to look like in the future? We can work on all this together.

Life brings many changes, and sometimes these changes can throw us off track. It helps to talk with someone who is objective in order to gain perspective, sort through what is confusing, and identify new ways of thinking, feeling and behaving. Are you struggling to cope with stress, life change, sadness or depression, loss, relationship issues or other such challenges? Would you like to break old habits and learn new ways to cope? I can be your co-pilot.

I am a firm believer that making the decision to address your issues takes a great deal of courage and bravery. Many of us come from circumstances or environments that encourage us to push through pain by burying it, outworking it, or avoiding it. While these coping skills help us to survive, they don't necessarily encourage us to thrive. As a therapist with psychodynamic training and extensive life coaching experience, it is important to me that our sessions focus on identifying where core issues are coming from, encourage collaborative problem solving, as well as create space for intentional goal setting.

My approach to therapy is integrative, helping the body and mind work together towards healing. I draw from holistic and somatic therapy techniques, practical neurobiology, yoga philosophy and meditation, mindfulness and mindful imagery, and frameworks of anti-oppression and intersectional feminism. I welcome folks who want to weave a spiritual or energy work component into therapy. I love talking with clients about tarot, astrology, the chakra system, nature, ancestral healing, intuitive gifts, and any other forms of energy work. If you connect with a practice that I'm not familiar with, I would love to learn about it from you!

Emerge. I like to assist people of diverse ages and backgrounds to emerge from different challenges. These difficulties may include the stress of daily life, single or repeated experiences of trauma, abuse, and neglect, relationship difficulties, problems with self-acceptance, life transitions, anxious and depressive feelings, and more. Most of us struggle to live in the moment with self-acceptance. In my 15+ years as a Psychologist, I have successfully worked with many people to decrease self-limiting thoughts, feelings of self-blame, worries, and stress so that they can live with more freedom, joy, and self-compassion.

I trust that you are the expert on you. Together, we will navigate what you know, how you know it, and, should you want to, how to create change where you want it. In my work, I bring my passion for storytelling and mental health to create space for you to edit, author, and share your own story. Storytelling is a powerful tool and one that can shape how we view ourselves and others. By working with a Narrative approach in therapy, we will use that tool to help you create the narrative that takes the most courage to write. I believe that old patterns are breakable, that change is possible, and that you are here for a purpose.

I believe there is incredible potential and hope for each person to have a fulfilling and meaningful life, even despite challenges in a person's background or current stressful situation. Each person possesses the resources within themselves to create the change they desire. Counseling simply facilitates unlocking those resources as providing additional "tools" for desired change. I enjoy working with a variety of people and consider it a pleasure to listen, encourage, offer these additional tools to move closer to a person's desired goals, healing, and happiness.
