Modern living is strenuous and challenging work. I will help you find relief from the heaviness of the worries, depression, and fatigue that so often sit right next to your innate capacities for meaning, appreciation, and joy. My approach is collaborative, engaged, and warm. I deeply respect the power of the therapeutic relationship as a potential agent for change and transformation, and I value your feelings of safety and comfort as essential to our working relationship.

I have extensive training in early childhood mental health, trauma treatment, regulation, attachment, and somatics, and I bring an awareness of social, cultural, and political factors that may be impacting the issues that bring you in for therapy.

I enjoy supporting parents in managing the struggles of raising, living with, and loving children. I am also available to work with children on developing emotional regulation skills, coping with family stress, recovering from traumatic events, and increasing confidence and self-esteem. Please call me for a free phone consultation.
