"My approach to therapy is based on mindfulness and self-compassion. Mindfulness teaches us how to be present and self-compassion teaches how to be a friend and ally to ourselves no matter what. I offer a warm and safe relationship, good old fashioned listening, and skills to improve effective communication, managing and learning from emotions, self-acceptance, compassion, and connecting with and living your values. Mindfulness-based therapy is practical, evidence-based, and it works. You don't have to be stuck, overwhelmed, or feel disconnected from your life. You can make positive changes, heal, grow, and thrive."

"Everyone wants to tell you what to do and you don't need any more advice or judgment. What you need is someone who can listen and help you look at the issue differently so that it becomes more open to resolution. You are an individual and not a diagnosis. I work on remaining non-judgmental, open, accepting, and caring. Whatever the issue, we can work on it together to help you to find solutions. Let's work on what could be, not what should be. It's time for you to feel better!"

"Do you struggle with issues related to sex, sexuality, and gender identity? I have worked to specialize in these issues which are frequently considered taboo. I strive to provide a safe and accepting environment for my clients to discover more about their sexuality/gender identity, transform it into what they want, and affirm who they are. Finding someone you feel comfortable talking to is hard, so I hope to make it a little easier by offering a free consultation to make sure we are a good fit."

"Hi! I am so glad you are here. My approach is direct, nurturing and connective. Our relationship is the foundation from which we can begin to do the work. I believe in the capacity to change and to become our best selves. I want this for you and I will work with you to achieve this. I incorporate psychodynamic talk therapy to delve into the origins of trauma and pain while incorporating mindfulness and somatic experiencing to treat the mind (thoughts) and body (symptoms). Additionally, I acknowledge that oppression exists within marginalized communities, thus treating the individual in a social context."

"Do your relationships cause you anxiety? Are you exhausted by life, rather than delighting in it? Are you working too hard in your friendships, in your family, at work, or in your romantic relationships? I work with many people struggling with issues related to untreated codependency. Structured to please and avoid conflict, you have built a life that you have molded for others and not for yourself. At a certain point this creates what we call, in the language of psychotherapy, symptoms. I help you to strengthen your boundaries in relationships and regain creative control over your life."

"You are “highly functioning”. You have succeeded in most of the ways that were expected of you. Most people look to you for direction, leadership, and support. And, you have a different internal life. You feel resentful of all the obligations put on you. You struggle with intimacy. You feel alone despite having a large social network. You worry a lot. You have a hard time knowing what you need. You feel disconnected from yourself. You feel tired. You want more."

"Does this sound like you? You criticize yourself for even the smallest mistakes. The voice in your head that says you aren’t good enough won’t leave you alone. So you veg out with TV, your phone, food or substances, or immerse yourself in work to get a break, but it's just a temporary fix - that voice always comes back. You try your best to keep your mind off things, but whenever you have down time, you're flooded with memories of the past or worries about the future. You don't know what to do with all these feelings. You wish you could just do something to make them all go away. "

"Real transformation often begins when you're suffering intensely. The intense suffering breaks through your hesitation to change at a core level. You don't have a choice anymore. Dark material surfaces: trauma, depression, loss, anxiety, spiritual crisis, meaninglessness, illness, or dependence on substances. Imagine that the symptoms you're suffering from are calling you home to a new way of living and being. I bring a high level of clinical experience, training, and compassion to my work. I am truly interested in you, how you got to this difficult point, and how to connect you to your authentic self."

"I specialize in psychological testing and assessment services for children, adolescents, and adults. Testing can help provide a better understanding of an individual's strengths and challenges and help target appropriate interventions. Sometimes testing is conducted to evaluate whether an individual meets criteria for a certain diagnosis, which is often needed to access services (e.g., for autism, ADHD, learning disability). Testing results can be used to guide treatment as well as to document a need for accommodations in school or for standardized tests. I also provide testing required for early entry to Kindergarten. "
