I use a strengths-based approach to enhance skills you already use, mixed with evidence-based therapies: CBT, EMDR, DBT, ACT, family systems, feminist therapy.
Sometimes our challenges overwhelm our typical ways of dealing with difficulties. Therapy can help to enhance competence, peace, strength, healing, and acceptance. My style is creative, collaborative, directive. I facilitate others to access hope and visualize healing, empowering you to confront the biggest, baddest wolves in your life, whenever you're ready. I specialize in treating problems rooted in intense experiences. Sometimes what we learn to do to survive something ends up creating problems for us later on. We'll work together to uncover what is holding you back and develop skills you need to live a rich, full life.

I am also fundamentally a Queer therapist, and I believe that any problem can be understood by analyzing power dynamics and differentials, whether in an individual person, a family , a community, or a society.
As we grow and develop as humans, we often find ourselves confronted by issues from the past – issues we may have thought long-resolved. These issues can manifest in our relationship dynamics, our perceptions about ourselves, and our means of coping with our environment. My role is to join you in confronting these things so that you can integrate and learn the lessons these past experiences are meant to teach you. In our work together, you are the expert. You decide what your experiences mean and how they impact the person you are.

During the course of my professional & personal life, I have gained an expertise in reproductive health & family building including fertility treatment, assisted & third party reproduction, and adoption & foster care.
Therapy is a very intimate experience. I strive for a personal connection with my clients from the get-go. Through that relationship, I am better able to understand the motivations, hidden struggles and impulses that drive my clients, and in turn, help them to utilize their own strengths and learned techniques to successfully address the difficult issues for which they sought therapy. I have assisted clients who are going through or preparing for a life transition, experiencing depression, anxiety or mood disorders, and recovering from trauma or loss.

We specialize in individual, family , group and couple's therapy.
We believe that being the best version of ourselves requires work. Many things can obstruct our path toward self-improvement. We enjoy accompanying our clients on their path and helping them to overcome their challenges. Individuals often become entrenched in patterns of behavior and relationships that are difficult to escape. But if we can assist our clients in honestly assessing their motivations, we believe they can live authentic, meaningful lives every day.

I obtained my Masters in Marriage and Family Therapy at The Family Institute at Northwestern University.
Therapy is the practice of finding opportunities for growth, while identifying the circumstances we can alter and finding peace with those we cannot. I use a systemic approach to help clients integrate their past experiences and relationships with where they are currently, in order to help them move forward with greater intention and well-being. This can be done through verbal expression, creative arts, play, movement, and writing. My approach is compassionate, curious, creative, affirming, and strength-based. I prioritize the therapist-client relationship in order to foster trust and safety, and help support change.

Clients reach out for help for a variety of reasons: they may feel the loss of a relationship, be struggling with communication with their family or significant other, believe they are under-performing at work, feel depressed, anxious, "down in the dumps," lack self-confidence or may struggle with out of control behaviors. Some clients come to me completely new to therapy, others have explored and worked on themselves for years, but seek a new perspective. I draw on a variety of theoretical approaches to understand a person and explore their perspectives on their life and their issues.

Together, we will explore your struggles in the context of your whole life: your inner self, interpersonal style, family , partners, health, work, culture, beliefs, community, and experiences related to diversity or difference.
I believe at some point, everyone experiences difficulties they cannot resolve through their usual means of coping and problem-solving. I can help you move forward by understanding patterns in your relationships, past experiences, thoughts, feelings, and behaviors and how they contribute to your current symptoms and concerns. With this insight, you can then take actions to produce the changes you seek. I'm passionate about helping clients find constructive and realistic solutions that reflect their individual personality and lifestyle.

As a family therapist I am trained to work with individuals, couples (or parent-child dyads), and families.
As a therapist I try to keep two sides of me fully present in our conversations. The first is who I am as a person, striving to feel what the concerns you bring to me must be like "on the inside." The other side is my commitment to the science of what is helpful to people. Through these inner conversations I strive very hard to help you find the care you need. What sets therapy apart from other conversations is the knowledge and experience we bring to our time together. I strive to do this in a personal way.

My approach combines elements of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), emotion focused therapy, family systems theory, mindfulness and internal family systems.
People come to me when feeling stressed, anxious, overwhelmed with fear and stuck - whether it's a relationship concern, a challenge with a child, a loss or life has taken an unexpected turn. As an experienced Clinical Professional Counselor and Marriage and Family Therapist , I can help. I partner with clients to change limiting beliefs and defeating patterns, discover strengths and embrace possibilities. I provide a safe, nonjudgmental space to explore difficult emotions, understand triggers, process deep wounds and become curious about all parts of ourselves.

I also have experience in and enjoy working with folks around relational issues, difficult family dynamics and identity exploration, to name a few! Please note, I only work with adults at this time.
Whether you are looking to cope with mental health concerns or eager to explore and understand yourself more fully, therapy can guide you to a more fulfilling daily experience that you can carry with you over your lifetime. Taking the step to start therapy is a move made out of courage and strength. I believe that through evidence supported treatment, humor, collaboration and a strong, supportive therapeutic relationship, change can begin from the moment we meet. Let's work together to help you build a life worth living!

I’m passionate and well versed in working with trauma with particular interest in relational trauma within family systems, grief and loss, men’s issues, anxiety, addictive behaviors and the LGBTQ+community.
We all have been shaped by our past experiences but sometimes we don’t know how to move forward. We don’t want to be “stuck in the past,” but we also know we can’t “avoid” our history. I have extensive experience helping people process their lived experiences, understand how their relationships with themselves and others affects who they are, and approach trauma, grief and loss in a manner that gives space for healing.

Are you well educated and yet feel overwhelmed by life? Is anxiety or depression making every day a struggle? Are you unhappy in your relationship, going through a life transition, or reeling from a major loss? Do you have noisy inner critics who make you feel bad about yourself.? When you feel out of balance maybe your self-care goes out the window. You feel off, not yourself, simple daily tasks of life become difficult. Maybe you are irritable with the people you care about the most. Maybe you want to talk to someone but are worried you will burden your family or friends.
