Seeking clarity? Therapy can allow you to identify and remove blocks to creating change, help you make more intentional choices by offering deeper awareness of your perspective, and/or help you to construct coherency or a different view of issues that are plaguing you. While I enjoy working with clients of varying backgrounds and ages (and all are welcome in my practice), I specialize in working with those who are suffering from anxiety, trauma, complex trauma, sex- and sexuality-related concerns, and who are aged 14+. I can help you to make adjustments that create change in your life. I offer therapy that is LGBTQ+ affirming.

I work with children, adolescents and adults, in varying degrees of distress. Many clients enter their therapeutic relationship with presenting problems which may include depression, anxiety, dysfunction in a primary relationship, or grief and loss. Others present addiction and codependency patterns that cause chronic difficulties with maintaining healthy relationships. Some suffer trauma that remains buried and entangled deep within. All are seeking a new path out of their suffering and into an enlightened experienced of themselves and the world. Together we will seek that fresh perspective, allowing old wounds to heal and creating space for a renewed vision of hope.

As children we create beliefs about ourselves and the world around us that are a result of our interactions with our environment, our heredity and, our relationships with others. Everyday we reinforce those beliefs by our assumptions and our interpretation of events, even though those beliefs may no longer be accurate, may cause us pain, and may negatively impact our ability to function at optimum potential. Counseling and hypnotherapy facilitate awareness, change, empowerment and growth.

My guiding philosophy in working with clients is that what is right with a person can enable them to overcome what is wrong with them. My years of working with patients in various treatment settings have only strengthened that view. Whether the issue is depression, trauma, painful personal loss or getting through a difficult crossroad in one's life, my basic approach is to help the person find their own pathways to healing. This is like a process of making "repairs," not of the body necessarily, but repairing one's perspective on life and finding the wherewithal to constructively move forward.

I provide a safe environment for clients to process their issues. I believe that psychotherapy is more than talk therapy. I am excited about the new research and treatments that focus on mind and body (somatic memories). I have an integrative approach to therapy. I work best with complex trauma (emotional and physical, including childhood neglect) and resulting anxiety and depression. I work well with grief related issues (complicated grief) and problems that arise from chronic illnesses.

People seek psychotherapy because of anxiety or depression or both. Often a person seeks treatment when his own perspective on his problems shows him no way out. Through asking you questions and making observations,I will help you see a perspective that will allow you to see what you need to do to attain satisfaction and joy in your daily life.

The ideal client is one that is willing to put in the work to make the changes identified to heal. Their needs include identifying the areas in which they are carrying the heaviest load. Once identified, the client works alongside the therapist to create and execute their goals within the treatment plan. Goals such as creating a list of coping skills, identifying and eliminating stressors, leaning into their support system, practicing mindfulness, completing assessments and researching behaviors. They want this to begin healing from their past (traumas) and entering into a fulfilling life to become a better version of themselves.

As a therapist who cares about her clients and their struggles, my goal is to help you achieve a fulfilling life while effectively handling any pain or suffering you may be experiencing. My method of therapy, called Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, is an empirically supported approach that has been "astoundingly effective" with improving a wide range of problems, including depression, relationship issues, family conflict, poor self-worth, and stress at work.

You may have been feeling overwhelmed with bouts of sadness. You may become panicky when particular topics are discussed or when driving down that one road. You may become uneasy when that one song comes on your playlist, a movie is featured on your feed or a smell comes by your noise. You notice you act unlike yourself around certain people because they remind you of someone from your past. Each of circumstances take you back to a particular painful moment or a series of events. A wound from emotional, physical, sexual or religious trauma and now you are ready to start leaving it behind.
