I am a trauma specialist working with developmental, relational, and shock traumas. Relationship is what we long for from our deep selves. From birth, our instinct is to connect in order to feel safety, comfort, and wholeness. This yearning moves with us throughout our lives. Connection gives us a sense of belonging and of being "okay". Be it the relationship with self, body, others, and life experience, the connection and flow of it is vital for healthy functioning. When the connection is blocked, frozen, or severed, a whole-self cannot thrive. Reconnecting is essential for our authentic self-expressions.

**I am currently 100% telehealth (Zoom/phone).** Psychotherapy is a journey of discovery. It is a walk toward the self. The purpose of psychotherapy is to assist the patient with knowing the Self: their intrinsic goodness, wisdom and strength found within. For women and couples, this requires a setting aside of assumptions about the self and others in order for curiosity to emerge. In psychotherapy, we explore what brings meaning to life and what creates value. We ask, “Do my actions bring me closer to the person I want to be?” As I assist the patient with shoring up coping skills we also explore the wondrous road back to the Self.

Why do we choose partners who fail to meet some of the important needs in our life, even though initially there was something about them that caused us to deeply love them? Why can't our partner understand what is going on in our world? Why doesn't our partner love us better? We imagine meeting the perfect partner and staying in love with them forever. They would understand us so well and offer the right words and support that we need. Why can't we find that perfect partner? Why is the partner we have so annoying at times?

You may be seeking therapy for many reasons, and it can be overwhelming to begin the process of therapy. As your therapist, I will engage you in becoming comfortable with exploring your inner self. My work with you is aimed at increasing your awareness of processes that lead to suffering and ultimately increasing your enjoyment and satisfaction in life. We will explore what is working for you and where you get stuck, how you relate to others and yourself, and your coping mechanisms, which all affect how you're feeling on a daily basis. Learning to understand and flow with your emotions will probably be a focus in our work together.

Being assertive seems easy in theory. You tell someone what you're thinking, feeling, or wanting. You express yourself in a clear, firm, and respectful way. You set clear physical and emotional boundaries. Unfortunately, if you've experienced childhood trauma, abuse, neglect, or harsh punishment, being assertive can be really difficult. You may fear upsetting other people. You may fear coming across as 'aggressive.' You may have a hard time expressing your thoughts and feelings.

If we are lucky in this life we will experience many inner deaths, each an opportunity to shed the scaly skin of yesterday, to embrace our own expansion, and enter a next dimension of life. If we fail to die, we fail to grow. Sadly, we have lost the ritual container that holds our rites of passage and without the containment and guidance that goes with it many of us feel lost, hopeless, deficient in some way and without a sense of belonging. Therapy in the depth tradition has become a space to compassionately witness and accompany individuals in the alchemical process of healing and growth.

When we understand and have compassion for our particular reactions to things, we begin to live in a state of greater peace and become able to connect to our deepest and most unique resources. Learning to calm and soothe our body’s response to stress can be life changing and enables us to harness our greatest potential.

Toxic shame can overwhelm us. I support my clients as they work through sex addiction, porn addiction, intimacy issues and sexual dysfunction, as well as the trauma which so often lies beneath. I also help couples as they navigate the challenges of infidelity, non-monogamous relationships and general disconnection.

Families are greatly impacted by betrayal, infidelity and sex addiction. As parents struggle to orient themselves to a new reality in the face of betrayal, it can be overwhelming and painful for a parent to recognize the immediate and future impact on their children. Well meaning parents can unintentionally make serious mistakes in managing the family during this painful and confusing time. You may have questions at this time such as “How is the tension in the household affecting our child?" and “Is our child internalizing emotional pain that we can't see?”

Do you ever feel like you are trapped in a pattern of making poor choices in life, having no grasp of why you make these choices, and why you seem unable to choose differently? I believe that therapy is a means to illuminate your internal world, and explore what drives your thoughts and behavior. With a better understanding of where your thinking originates, you will gain a stronger foundation in which to challenge negative and/or distorted thoughts that may be holding you back.
