I work with clients with general life stressors, life transitions, depression, anxiety, trauma, attachment issues, co-dependency, body image, sexual abuse, adults in recovery, relationship issues, adoption , adult children of alcoholics and adult children of mentally ill parents.
There is a phrase that says the longest distance we will travel is the 18 inches from your head to your heart. Current research supports the use of body based methods. I am a Brene Brene Brown Daring Way Facilitator. I also use a combination of music therapy, psychodrama, advanced integrative therapy, and Brainspotting. Brainspotting can be used to process traumatic events, remove creative blocks in artists, and improve sports performance. Brainspotting is also very helpful in stopping unwanted behaviors such as smoking, over eating, phobias, and addiction.

Having worked with individuals and families to develop strategies to cope with and manage the effects of a stressful career, address trauma, grief, infertility and adoption , Post-Partum Depression, and other mental health concerns, I know that reaching out can be hard.
Therapy should be a safe place for you to work on goals, gain skills to better deal with life challenges, and/or to take back your life from the effects of trauma, depression, or anxiety. I customize my style for each individual and use evidence-based interventions to help you reach your goals. We can work together to help you find understanding, and catalyze growth and healing. I worked in the corporate world for 10+ years, and understand the struggles of managing a team, proving your worth, and finding time and ways to care for your soul.

I have provided therapy for both children and adults and can honestly say I enjoy working with all ages in various stages of life. I believe that anyone can gain knowledge through their experience in an optimistic way in a warm, supportive, therapeutic environment. When facing challenges and struggles, you do not need to feel alone; it can be very advantageous to have someone by your side who is nonjudgmental, understanding, and compassionate. Taking the opportunity to seek out help is not a sign of weakness; it is an admirable attempt to try to live a more fulfilling life for yourself and demonstrate a great deal of strength!

There are many reasons or motivations people may have for seeing a therapist, and they are all valid: You might feel stuck, out of balance, disconnected. Maybe you and/or a loved one are experiencing some form of loss or distress, are seeking change or healing. You may want to foster growth, self-exploration, nourishment, or acceptance in your life. Perhaps you just need a space where you can be validated and supported, without judgement. My approach to therapy is eclectic and collaborative: working with you to tailor and adjust my methods to your strengths, preferences, and needs. In therapy, one size does NOT fit all.

Adoption Therapists
In recent years, psychologists have begun to investigate how adopted children and their adoptive families navigate their lives together. In an attempt to help children who have been adopted adjust and thrive in a new home, and to understand why problems may arise, studies look at the genetic as well as both prenatal and postnatal environmental influences on the development of children who have been adopted.
