I believe your well being is all about you - your progress, your presence, your potential, and your peace. The pace of life is dizzying and often disorienting even for the healthiest person. We all bump up against obstacles and events that cause us to pause, reflect and assess the road we are traveling. Sometimes the moment is brief. At other times it is protracted and complicated. I'm here to explore life's turns and detours so that, together, we may restore these moments for a useful purpose.

At different points in life we can find ourselves "stuck," overwhelmed, defeated, or feeling disconnected from self or others. Social media has added another challenge for us to navigate while seeking connection. Therapy is an opportunity to make positive changes in one's life and relationships. By gaining an understanding of our needs, motives, and fears we can move out of an "auto-pilot" mode and into an active role in our lives. I work alongside clients to help them develop a more balanced, integrated, and grounded sense of self and build awareness of their choices in order to work to defeat the obstacles creating distress.

Do you ever feel like the support of your family and friends is not enough? You don't have to be diagnosed with a mental health disorder to benefit from therapy. Many people turn to therapy for help with everyday life issues: relationship problems, anxiety, and self-doubt. Others seek therapy during difficult times such as sexual abuse and grief. In order to reap the benefits of therapy it's important that you choose the right therapist- someone you can trust, who makes you feel valued with the experience to help you overcome emotional challenges and make changes for the better in your life.

Do you feel trapped in your thoughts and emotions? For many people dealing with stress, anxiety, depression, or trauma emotions and thoughts can feel like they are constantly overwhelming and painful. They can often feel trapping, keeping you from enjoying life the way you might want to. However, it doesn't have to stay this way. Together we can learn how to manage these seemingly uncontrollable painful experiences. Understanding our internal experience, and being equipped with tools to handle our reactions, is often the key to improving our lives.

The search for a therapist is never easy and I believe fit and comfort are essential in providing effective therapy. I strive to make coming to therapy a comfortable experience and to provide a safe space. I work with people wanting to reduce their anxiety and depression to build skills, gain insight, and increase self-awareness. I find that life transitions, big or small, can have a resounding effect on a person’s well being. Finding balance and building on personal strengths in order to achieve identified goals becomes important in these moments, as well understanding the importance of self-confidence. I strive to work with clients to find themselves and their individual nature that can help them through whatever they may face.

Do you find it so difficult to focus that it interferes with your work, school, or relationships? Do you or your teen become easily distracted? Is it really hard to remain organized despite your best efforts? Inattention, impulsivity, and hyperactivity are three common problems associated with ADHD, which affects about 5% of people. It is much more serious than just having trouble concentrating. ADHD creates real difficulties for teens and college students at school, presents barriers to adults' success at work, and strains relationships between people with ADHD and those who care about them.

Are you finding it difficult to manage the many roles in your life? It can be challenging when handling the multiple demands of husband, wife, employer, employee, caretaker, mentor, sibling, friend, volunteer and neighbor etc. Sometimes, it is hard to breathe because our minds are constantly thinking about what we have not accomplished for the day, the week and even for the future. This anxiety can impact the way that we navigate through life and can also affect our relationships.

An athlete's life is different from other people. Does the stress of being an athlete sometimes makes you feel overwhelmed and alone? Are you expected to be almost perfect and fear you won't measure up and will get ridiculed? Are you afraid of not being "good enough" and coaches losing confidence in you? Does worrying about your performance leave you feeling overanxious? Do you have moments of overwhelming sadness but are afraid to let anyone know because you're an athlete and athletes can't show any signs of weakness, all the while feeling stressed out with no one to go to?

Starting therapy can be trying process, and often what's important is finding the right fit between a therapist and a client. Once therapy begins, it can be an incredible resource where an individual may regain a sense of balance and peace of mind, build more satisfying relationships, develop more effective communication, as well as find the sense of direction and meaning that allows one to thrive. I also work as a forensic expert in women’s reproductive mental health and consult with legal counsel on criminal cases that are relevant to an experience in the postpartum period, this includes murder, infanticide, neonatacide.

We live in a culture where we deal with daily stress and sometimes trauma based on our marginalized identities, whether they be race, gender, sexual orientation, class, or ability level. Combine that with the ongoing effects of the pandemic and the stress of the constant negative news feed, and it becomes easy to feel overwhelmed and lose our balance. Having been in practice for 18 years and tuned into the ways in which our culture affects us all, I'm here to help. Reaching out to a therapist can be scary. I work to create an open, judgement-free environment where we will work on your problems collaboratively.

While life's challenges and transitions are often times when we feel greater anxiety and stress, I believe they are also opportunities for self-understanding and growth. Whether you are dealing with stress in relationships or at work, feeling worn out or depressed, or struggling to cope with a loss, you don't have to work through it alone. I strive to provide a safe, supportive and reflective environment where clients can feel comfortable to explore their concerns, feelings, and relationship patterns and build upon their strengths to develop different ways of understanding, coping, and relating to themselves and others.

Yoga Therapy enhances rehabilitation of injuries naturally using gravity, tensegrity and breath to improve circulation and create more space in tight joints, relieving tension and fatigue, facilitating clarity and insight.
