I enable clients to access the wisdom of their emotions to enhance their relationships and lives. Happy relationships and solid self-esteem are the foundations of psychological and emotional well-being, while disharmony, worries, and unhappiness signal that we need to experience new ways to effectively express feelings and enact aspirations in our lives. I strive to provide an inviting and nonjudgmental therapeutic context to empower clients to find satisfying ways to address concerns. My integrative approach draws upon Western science and Eastern wisdom, including Buddhist approaches to well-being.

*Accepting new clients using only Telehealth due to COVID-19* Life sometimes throws us unwanted curveballs and challenges that are difficult to navigate on our own. These challenges can make us feel like we are alone and powerless to change the things we want to change. Navigating these challenges in therapy is a way of choosing to face these challenges head on, to grow, and to heal. I know it takes so much courage and strength to bring you here, and my main goal is to match that courage and strength with acceptance, understanding, and unconditional support.

Have you ever felt stuck while in a relationship or confused about who you are or where you want to be in your life? Do parts of you feel lost and insecure while other parts of you are so ready to change and give up old habits? These different parts of us may feel pressure from family, friends, work, school, and society to fit a mold of who we are supposed to be as a person. We may even put the most pressure on ourselves to be in control, strive for perfection, or please others. Yet, deep down we may feel empty, out of control, anxious, or inauthentic. You are not alone.

Sometimes life throws us more than we think we can handle. We feel so sad it hurts. We feel alone and like things won't get better. We worry about things we can't control. We get so stressed and overwhelmed that we start avoiding or procrastinating. We may know what we need to do, but feel stuck or can't seem to actually do it.

I’m a big believer that therapy doesn’t have to be buttoned-up or artificial. It should be comfortable and real. I prefer to facilitate a casual, collaborative, & affirming environment where we can openly discuss anything that’s on your mind and empower you to explore who you are and how you relate to others. I work with individuals, couples, open/polyamorous relationships, and adult families. In addition, I specialize in working working with athletes, e-sports athletes, musicians, and fellow therapists.

Transitions in life such as birth, illness, death, divorce, aging, or career change, can be exciting, but also, devastating, confusing or scary. There can be a variety of reactions to these challenges, and at times having to make choices can leave you feeling stuck or depressed, and unable to make a decision. My passion is guiding women through these life transitions with compassion, empathy, and support. As an Oncology Social Worker I have learned how important it is to get to the heart of an issue and work toward resolutions, skills I learned working with patients experiencing life threatening illnesses.

It is normal, on occasion, for everyone to experience some anxiety dealing with life. But lately those feelings have become overwhelming. Over time, it feels like you are anxious about everything, and nothing. The worry is starting to creep into every aspect of your life- work, family, relationships,... even going to get out of bed feels overwhelming some days! You are not going crazy, and you are not alone- anxiety is one of the most common reasons people reach out to for help. Therapy can help get things back to normal.

I specialize in working with sexual desire discrepancy and intimacy. Sexual desire discrepancy is when one person in a relationship wants sex more or differently than their partner(s). It is very common and occurs in otherwise happy and healthy relationships. Although common, desire discrepancy can lead to severe relational discord. Through a combination of psychosexual education, deep couple's work, and a compilation of the leading sexual desire discrepancy theories, I have designed a way of addressing desire discrepancy that offers you and your partner(s) a new way to be sexual together. It is not easy work, but it is rewarding.

Are you tired of feeling stressed and anxious? Feeling stuck or overwhelmed by it all? You are not your anxiety. However, at times, it certainly feels that it controls every aspect of your life. Your anxiety decides what you say or don’t say, it impacts the choices you make, and holds you back from doing the things you want to do. Some days, before you even open your eyes in the morning, you are already feeling anxious! You have done everything you can think of to find relief on your own.
