I am interested in working with adults, couples and families and specialize in working with trauma , postpartum depression, eating disorders/body image conflicts, life transitions, anxiety, depression, sex therapy, and relationship dissatisfaction.
Therapy can be about working to resolve ongoing pain, or it can simply be about self-exploration and growth. No matter what brings you to therapy, it is my belief that a trusting relationship between the client and therapist is the starting point for progress and is essential to achieving long-lasting change. My goal is to make all my clients feel comfortable and welcomed when working together. I understand that the ability to reflect and be comfortable in sharing the most intimate details about your life is not an easy task. My goal is to create a safe space for my clients to share their stories and to help manage their concerns.

I offer person-centered, values based, trauma informed individual and group psychotherapy alongside empirically based interventions and skills.
In the current state of our world you may be noticing internal experiences which can feel overwhelming and exhausting. It is understandable if you are noticing yourself feeling disconnected from your life or even a heightened awareness of yourself or others around you. This can often lead to, but not limited to, isolation, using substances to numb or activate your emotions, becoming overly involved in tasks, or relying on behaviors of restriction or bingeing. Our minds and our bodies are working extremely hard to regulate and become accustomed to our current routines and oftentimes this can lead to burn-out.

To me, therapy is about seeking wholeness; it is a journey of more fully integrating our minds, bodies, & souls. Many of us live trapped in patterns & scripts that weigh us down & that keep us from living full, authentic lives. As a trauma -informed therapist (& former spiritual director), I take into consideration the whole person, noting that past or ongoing traumas, wounds, & injustices shape the way we understand and engage with ourselves and the world. I help clients draw connections between formative past experiences & current ones in order to identify & shift those relational patterns & ongoing struggles.

My clinical focus consists of working with adult individuals experiencing post-traumatic stress , depression, anxiety, anger problems, relationship difficulties, work burnout, grief/loss, adjustment concerns and identity development issues intersected with culture and sexuality.
I believe we are most content when we are most in alignment with our true selves. Discontent, then, is more of a disconnect with who we truly are. It is a pain that can take on many forms (e.g. stress, sadness, loneliness, anxiety, anger, grief, exhaustion) and serves the purpose of bringing to our awareness, aspects of our self that need to be attended to rather than ignored. I believe the foundation of a helping relationship lies in fostering a safe space in which a person can show up as they are in the presence of someone who holds them in positive regard while highlighting their strengths and exploring together areas of growth.

I work with adults who are trying to figure out how to get unstuck or need to adjust to a new phase of life. Many of my clients come from other nations, where the norms are different and people live more communally. Most of my clients also have a history of trauma , narcissistic abuse, or issues stemming deeply from their childhoods. These issues and traumas add a layer of complication to an already challenging day to day life. What all of my clients have in common is that they feel anxious, powerless, or hopeless about their situations. I can help.

I have a deep respect for the strengths you bring to the therapeutic work, and my approach to therapy involves building on these strengths to support you in reaching your goals. I believe strongly in a non-judgmental approach to therapy, and I offer an emotionally safe space where you can explore important life issues in an authentic way.
