Are you struggling to have a healthy relationship with yourself or with others? Does it often feel like happiness comes more easily to other people than it does to you? Or that somewhere along the way, you stumbled or lost your way, and are fighting to find it again? Let me assure you that you deserve and are capable of joy and growth. My work has shown me that happiness does not mean feeling "good" all the time, but rather being strong enough to tolerate all that life throws at us. Maybe you have been thrown an awful lot.

As a psychotherapist, I have been profoundly touched by survivors of trauma, particularly extreme trauma, ritual abuse, clergy abuse, spiritual abuse, mind control, and illness trauma. Trauma survivors started coming to me over 30 years ago. Though at first I had little understanding of what they had gone through, I recognized they were just normal people who had endured abnormal, extremely difficult situations. Those first few clients patiently persisted with me and taught me. I am humbled that they trusted me. As they shared their stories and hearts and we persevered, I learned more and more, and they got better and stronger.

Adult clients come to me when feeling stuck, anxious or depressed. Others are coping with trauma, loss, or a major life change. Using a variety of approaches, I help clients gain insight and self-acceptance, to navigate life transitions from a position of strength, to grow in relationships, and to make meaning from loss. Therapy is a wonderful form of self-care, like eating well and maintaining friendships. Whether you are in crisis or just feeling stuck, I strive to be an honest, accepting, and active partner in your journey to greater fulfillment.

One of my favorite therapy-isms is, "if nothing changes, nothing changes". You deserve the opportunity to feel your best and I would be honored to help you on your journey towards emotional healing and self-discovery. The best part of being a therapist is getting to discover all the unique strengths and coping skills that everyone possesses, and helping them identify and access those gifts. I love working with people in all stages of life, and truly believe in the healing power of a strong, therapeutic relationship.

[Offering Secure Video Options] Compassion is not a relationship between the healer and the wounded. It's a relationship between equals. Only when we know our own darkness well can we be present with the darkness of others. Compassion becomes real when we recognize our shared humanity.” These words, written by Pema Chödrön, capture the nature of the therapeutic relationship. Our work will look like joining together as we honor your story and compassionately notice the places in your heart that feel broken and are hurting.

This approach is successful with clients seeking help with adulting, relationships, families, and parenting as well as individual therapy. As an open and affirming Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner I've learned that the integration of these talk modalities are helpful for navigating life processes. Talk therapy undergirds the treatment relationship and when necessary may be complemented with medication management.

Being "sane" in this world might be crazy. If you’re looking for a therapist who will not pathologize you or talk down to you, we might be a good fit. Whether or not you are dealing with extra baggage like anxiety, depression or relationship problems, you are bound to feel overwhelmed right now. This doesn’t mean that you aren’t doing ok, or even thriving, in other areas of your life. I get that. I also get that thriving in some areas of life doesn't mean you aren't really, deeply struggling in other areas. You can look completely put together, but not feel that way at all some of the time.
