Through a gentle invitation, I ask clients to observe their thoughts and emotions without judgment as they arise and pass, nestling into the session as a place of safety and becoming grounded by the observance of breath. This natural unfolding helps to create spaciousness so that we can begin to navigate through the less than comfortable places within ourselves, looking at them squarely and experiencing them as they are, without repression or indulgence.

Experiencing anxiety is a normal part of life, but sometimes it can start taking over your life, and this is when therapy can help. Sometimes it is hard to know what to do, or hard to do what we want when we are overwhelmed by certain fears, feelings or ideas. This too is when therapy can help. Whether you or your child is experiencing anxiety that is causing distress and limiting life, I would love to work with you. I believe therapy is a collaborative process, which will be driven by your needs, desires, and motivations.

I work with individuals ages 18 and up, as well as couples and parents. I believe symptoms are a request from the psyche to grow -- whether this manifests as depression, anxiety, or just a feeling that you want more from your life or your relationships. Or you may be experiencing a transition, grief, or loss and need support to navigate this change. Therapy creates a space in which healing and growth can happen. I believe humans have a natural, inherent tendency toward health and self-actualization. We are hard-wired to live good and meaningful lives, but sometimes need support to do so.

As a board-certified psychoanalyst social worker, I help individuals work through depression and anxiety, traumas, personality disorders, and general problems in living. The conflicts or stuck feelings that bring a person to therapy tell us about internal experiences that need to be acknowledged and understood. Our problems are often the result of patterns of thoughts, emotions, and behaviors that can be addressed in therapy.

Psychotherapy is meant to address the roots of mental and emotional struggle, rather than just symptoms. In my practice, we can explore your strengths and challenges, discovering over time what motivates you, what may be contributing to your difficulties, and what helps you thrive. You will have the opportunity to get to know yourself and find ways of living that feel satisfying and fulfilling. My approach is intended to help create more room for your experience and navigate your thoughts and feelings with understanding, compassion, and skill.

I provide therapy for individuals-(children, adolescents and adults), couples, and facilitate process groups. I also am a multicultural educator. I help individuals cope with mechanisms that will help find ways to make different choices and re-invent ourselves; so we then become the architect, the planner and the builder of our lives, throughout our lives. I provide workshops and presentations that deal with undoing multiple oppressions in both queer and communities of color.
