I love helping adults who are ready to make a change and want to address: trauma, relationship difficulties, issues with food and body image, chronic stress, anxiety, panic, or depression through building tangible tools and mindfulness-based skills. I welcome clients of diverse backgrounds and seek to provide respectful and culturally sensitive services to all. As an immigrant myself, I have a special appreciation for the experience of first and second generation immigrants. My approach draws from mindfulness, body-oriented interventions, parts work, evidence-based modalities, advances in neuroscience, and attachment research.

You might be struggling with low self worth or a relentless inner critic that affects your relationships or school or work performance. By using a trauma informed approach we uncover what lies underneath allowing for understanding, access to compassion and the easing of overwhelming emotions.

So often self-work involves degrees of correction and vigilance that can actually make you feel less connected to yourself. You want to better understand yourself and your relationships so that you can feel more whole and authentic. You are curious how your past connects to your present problems, and why certain narratives repeat themselves. You want interpersonal interactions to feel less complicated at work, at home, and with friends. You are tired of trying so hard to analyze and figure out your part in these relationships to no avail. You want to find the right solution, but in doing so end up feeling isolated.

Music therapy is intended for children, teens and adults who have a strong connection to music, play and art, and who believe that starting with their creativity and strengths can help create therapeutic change. This creative form of therapy uses music in all of its facets. I work with children and teens who struggle with social-emotional challenges due to trauma, life changes, learning challenges, academic/social pressures that can result in anxiety and depression. For adults, music therapy might provide a richer and more intuitive experience with which to explore and cope with anxiety and depression.

It takes courage to reach out for support. Often people reach out when their usual strategies to manage their life fail, and they feel stuck. Are you feeling like you can't think or talk your way out of your unhappiness? The role of the therapist is as a facilitator or guide to help you identify the patterns that are no longer working for you, and develop strategies to heal and change. I will work with you to develop a plan in therapy that meets your individual needs and goals. My style is to give a combination of compassion, honest feedback, non-judgment, humor, and warmth.

I want the people I work with to learn how to go through those lonely, sad, stressful, and worried times with a fighting chance for a new possibility and better outcome. Exploring your history and learning how to cope with known and unknown patterns working against you can build newer and healthier patterns. Controlling the intensity of your emotions and bringing new passion and excitement to your relationships takes practice and a little time for the process to take hold. I believe we can do the necessary individual and couples therapy to increase your satisfaction of a life well-lived.

Transitions in our lives need to be marked and held to be integrated. The journey through can be dark and confusing, and how we adapt, grow, and who we look to for support, will illuminate our paths. I have had a focus on those contemporary rites of passage within my own experience, coming into adulthood, birth and parenthood, through relationships, my own identity, and facing our last goodbyes to loved ones. My work as a birth doula drew even more emphasis on the importance of our experiences around pregnancy and childbirth, and how celebrating the changing of our seasons was crucial to our sense of self.
