Sometimes even the smartest and most capable women I know feel stuck. It could be moving beyond an issue in a relationship, anxiety, perfectionism or it could be an eating disorder or traumatic memory. You may feel like you are underperforming in life and relationships or just completely overwhelmed with everything going on. When we do not have the social support we need or just not sure how to use our social support, it can be helpful to talk to a professional and get objective feedback. To be asked thought provoking questions. To get ideas with how to move forward and start thriving in life!

Children and adolescents have many challenges today. A strong, supportive family environment is the key to promoting health in our young people. I am dedicated to providing guidance and help to make the process easier for the family. Trauma and behavioral issues are my specialty. It helps to have a safe and non judgmental listener if you are struggling with life issues. It is my goal to be that person as you work through the difficulties you may be experiencing.

Accompaniment matters. Relationships transform. We sit together to access the health that is at the center of every human being, even when one of us can’t feel it. We sit because healing happens in relationship, access to true self is made easier in the presence of another person’s settled nervous system, and because your healing matters for the health of all of us. Whether you are facing overwhelm, anger, a frozen feeling, compulsions, depression, trauma, anxiety, or facing other difficult experience, we can touch it with awareness and respect. Our experience includes joy, includes pain, and includes connection and compassion.

The fact that you are here now, reading these words, shows that a part of you is ready for change. It takes courage to face our feelings and work through them to build a better life. When we do face our feelings, we find that everything we are feeling and doing has helped us to survive our past experiences. We learn to give compassion and understanding to ourselves and our loved ones, and recognize that we have each been doing our best. We can then learn new ways of relating with our feelings and our loved ones that brings joy and connection.

I provide a safe, warm and welcoming atmosphere that allows for self exploration, discovery, and healing of the mind and heart.

While being genuinely seen in young adulthood is so powerful, being out as your authentic self seems entirely out of reach. You suspect your lived experience is too different to be relatable or painfully unacceptable to those you care about. Loneliness is a wall between you and the life you want. At night you lay awake imagining what you might say if you told your story. The words catch in your throat. Anxiety when it comes to being honest about who you are is a bitter pill. It takes on a life of its own, causing you to feel stuck and wondering if you're silencing the best parts of yourself.

Clients who benefit from therapy with me are often individuals who have felt misunderstood, marginalized, or even harmed by the mental health system. Whether because of sexuality, gender identity, spiritual beliefs, neurodivergence, or non-mainstream relationships, they have found therapy to be unwelcoming, unhelpful, or unsafe. No one can heal in the absence of emotional safety, so my first priority is helping you establish safety with me. This means engaging as fully as possible with your preferences, values, and needs, and trusting you to be the expert on you. You're always steering the ship in your therapy--I am only a guide.

Can you use your mind to reduce your suffering, rather than increase it? Or to increase meaning and depth in your life? You can, but most people need a little help with this. Sometimes a sympathetic family member or wise friend can help a great deal; other times when a knowledgeable, compassionate professional is a better choice. Perhaps your internal life feels out of control, or you're feeling stuck, repeating ineffective patterns of relating to yourself and others.
