I have a compassionate and receptive style that I combine with an integrative therapeutic approach, drawing on a variety of approaches, including EMDR and IFS.
My focus is to help adult individuals heal, recover, and feel empowered. I specialize in treatment for those recovering from eating disorders, trauma, depression, addictions, intimacy and attachment disorders, and codependency. It is my philosophy that each one of us has our own wisdom and capacity to heal. I am of the belief that no one is broken, nothing is missing, and people do not need to be fixed. Instead we need to learn the skills to trust ourselves and strengthen our ability to extend compassion inward so that we can recognize that we have been complete within all along.

I offer an integrative approach which includes practical skills so that client's have the tools needed to navigate life.
Life can be overcome by stress easily, and for some of us that stress becomes unbearable. Thoughts and feelings become overwhelming, leaving life feeling out of control and chaotic. In my work, I bring a wealth of curiosity and compassion to exploring a person's inner world of thoughts and feelings. Through this exploration, clients find deep internal healing and develop meaningful satisfaction in their work, relationships, and most of all within themselves. I am trained in Internal Family Systems therapy, which has given me a means to help people reach their goals and create the life they long for.

I utilize a holistic, strength based and integrative approach, which cultivates mindfulness, emotional resilience, and self-compassion.
If you have been thinking about speaking with a therapist, or finding one for someone you care about, then you are in the right place. Opening yourself up to ask for help can feel like a risk, but I encourage you to see this moment of vulnerability as a strength. Life is hard and seeking therapy is an opportunity to prioritize yourself, and focus on what really matters to you. I view it is a collaborative process, in which we can work together to discover what would help to increase your overall experience of wellness.

“Why?”, you ask, “does my life seem so hard?” Anxiety and depression, constant companions, you wonder why, after all the hard work you have done on yourself, you aren’t feeling better? The voices in your head telling you “You’re not good enough” or “No one cares” are getting louder - again. Anytime you speak up at work or in your relationships or spend time with others, you feel like an imposter. You are certain others will see through your “imposter syndrome” and eventually leave or get annoyed. You spend most of your time taking care of others' needs which is a welcome distraction. And, you know you are reaching a boiling point.
