"Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning to dance in the rain"-Anonymous. My therapy style is warm and compassionate as I work with clients that desire to cope and thrive in the midst of anxiety, depression, and stress. I specialize in working with unresolved issues and trauma that result in anxiety, depression, and grief. I am certified in EMDR by EMDRIA. Integrating therapy with spirituality when appropriate is also a special area of focus.

We are living in a surreal time. Things that may have felt difficult prior to the pandemic carry a very different load now, as we learn to navigate life with Covid. While the idea of therapy may have felt radical before, it can now offer us a roadmap to developing greater internal strength to steer through the uncertainty. It is deep within our unconscious that we meet our true selves and can then begin the profound work of developing mechanisms for the lives we are seeking. I view it as a great privilege to bear witness to the strength that emerges from the courage of confronting the vulnerability of our own psychology.

Since major stressors trigger mental health challenges, please know that this is a vulnerable time, especially if you're feeling overwhelmed, unproductive, or isolated. Learn strategies to rein in anxiety, hopelessness, irritability, and joylessness, so you can manage your mental wellness through the rest of this pandemic. What if therapy could help you feel like yourself again sooner? It's okay to get angry, set boundaries with difficult people, and make space to figure out what you want and need. Together, we can address what doesn't seem right and develop custom tools and strategies to help you reach your goals.

The decision to work on oneself is not something I take lightly. Healing is a sacred path, but not easy. I welcome clients as they are and hope to become while offering a warm and peaceful presence that is active yet non-invasive. My clients are as diverse as the issues and different parts of themselves that emerge. Symptomatic states of being tell a story of a unique legacy of neurobiolgical attachment wiring. Developing safety, mindful awareness, and self-compassion, I help my clients find meaning, hope, and the freedom to become who they were meant to be.

Are high levels of anxiety and work pressure causing you to feel irritable and impatient with people? Are you tired of feeling chronically rushed, tense, and fatigued? Mindfulness and somatic therapy for anxiety will empower you with effective techniques to reduce anxiety and increase your emotional peace. I know the time pressure you experience most days is intense - and the amount of obligations required of you at home and at work is mind-boggling. But the extreme pressure you experience is unsustainable, and it’s keeping you from fully enjoying secure personal relationships and meaningful leisure activities. There is another way.

By including humor & other non-traditional approaches in my work, I am a good fit for those looking for someone who is not very 'therapist' like but still has all the experience, therapeutic skills & insight to help create positive change. I am often able to connect with children & adults that have previously not enjoyed or benefited from counseling. Whether you are looking for brief Solution Focused help or gentle inquiry, you get to decide how we work together.

As an integrative therapist, I draw from different psychotherapy orientations. This allows me to tailor therapy to your needs and allows for a truly collaborative process in deciding where we go and how. Since successful therapy depends on a strong relationship between client and therapist, my first priority is nurturing that bond by creating a safe and supportive environment. I believe therapy is most effective when it is flexible, demystified, and client-centered, so you can expect me to be transparent about my ideas and approaches. My style is at times infused with humor and is always warm and direct.
