The ideal client is prepared for a new journey and experience. Clients who work with me soon realize that their strength and freedom comes from within. They feel liberated from their emotional constrains and fears. Through therapy, my clients discover that "They" are the creators and drivers of their own lives. They experience emotional freedom that, in turn brings more balance in their lives. Clients achieve stress relief, improve their self-esteem and self-concept, and experience increased levels of satisfaction in their relationships. They experience an increased ability to work out conflicts in a constructive way.

I use supportive, insight-oriented and cognitive techniques in order to help my clients identify the source of their dissatisfaction, and begin to pursue a more fulfilling life. Beginning therapy takes courage. However, it is very often a relief to gain perspective on issues that at present may feel overwhelming or unmanageable. I see therapy as an opportunity to find relief from distress, and to find lasting, sustainable improvement in the quality of your life.

As a therapist, I support clients in finding clarity, understanding themselves more deeply, and taking steps towards creating the kind of life they want to experience. My clients feel lost or overwhelmed and want something to change, but may not know where to start. Together, we work to understand how unprocessed emotions and past experiences are getting in the way of their wellbeing in the form of anxious thoughts, unhelpful relationship patterns, or negative self-talk. My clients want to build tools to become more self-aware, cope with challenges, and feel more satisfied in their personal relationships.

There can be such a range of feelings, thoughts, and questions in the search for a therapist… but I'm truly so glad you are here. I hold the belief that an authentic, collaborative therapeutic relationship is foundational to building and maintaining an empowered therapy space... which means bringing that "human-ness" into session is so important. I prioritize a trauma-informed/relational approach and have a passion for walking alongside young adults in their journey through trauma, relationships, self-esteem, and anxiety.

Keeping things inside us is a terrible, lonely weight. It may start off feeling manageable, but it eventually builds up. Often we find it difficult to share with others, because we don’t want to burden them or be seen as “needy.” At these points, I think we just need someone to be honest with about our experiences and needs, without fear of judgment. When we notice we’re having the same thoughts and problems coming up repeatedly, we might need a push to get us unstuck. When an old hurt arises, we may need the space to explore it and the skills to ground ourselves in the present.

Looking for relief from symptoms of depression, anxiety or low self esteem ? Perhaps you are struggling in your current relationship to feel heard, to increase intimacy or to quit arguing? Through our work together I will help you find positive alternatives to negative thoughts, beliefs, feelings and behaviors that are keeping you from fully understanding and accepting yourself and connecting with others. Together we will establish realistic goals, monitor growth and change and celebrate rewards, while learning to accept the things that can't be changed. Clients see me as non-judgmental, empowering, and active in their quest for healing.

I utilize a growth-oriented approach to empower people to problem solve and make changes to pursue the life they envision. Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) strategies are used in my practice, with an emphasis on the use of trauma-sensitive mindfulness, to equip people with the skills needed to overcome life’s stressors and challenges. In dialectics, we acknowledge the opposing sides of each experience and work together to synthesize the two. I prioritize developing a safe, trusting therapeutic relationship that will meet you where you are at in your journey, and will come alongside you to cultivate your strengths.

As an art therapist, I can incorporate the art making process as a restorative tool to increase insight using nonverbal forms of expression and expanding imaginative capabilities within oneself. My desire is to provide a safe space to explore past experiences and traumas while creatively working towards healing and growth.

Sometimes life presents us with difficult challenges and we feel lost. We may be haunted by trauma, feel stuck in relationships, have negative thoughts cycling around in our minds, and find that we are sabotaging ourselves. Changing life circumstances-both positive (like the birth of a child) or negative (loss of a job)-can cause anxiety and despair. I address these issues by fostering a warm and trusting therapeutic relationship where clients become more aware of their thoughts and feelings, make sense of their experiences, and move forward in their lives.
