I have treated a wide variety of issues including but not limited to depression, anxiety, addiction, professional development, relationship and intimacy issues, infertility, gay, lesbian and transgender issues, and parenting.
I believe that therapy is a conduit for mental, emotional and spiritual change. Working with individuals, couples and families I often see my clients grow and change in the most positive and rewarding ways. In my practice I work closely with people to identify the changes you want to make in your life. Then we focus on the strengths that have helped you thus far and the challenges that have held you back. Understanding yourself, a strong self-esteem, and emotional, mental, physical and spiritual healing are the key to moving forward in life and being happy.

My particular areas of interest include surviving the trauma of interpersonal, sexual, and/or political violence; negotiating a lesbian/ gay/ bisexual/ transgender/ queer identity; and the impact of stigma on mental and physical well-being.
I believe there are many ways to bring about change, and work collaboratively with clients to identify the ways that will work best for them. My approach to therapy is integrative, incorporating relational, psychodynamic and strengths-based perspectives, as well as cognitive-behavioral and mindfulness-based interventions. I am committed to understanding clients within their cultural contexts, and pay close attention to the impact of ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation and, when relevant, religion on development and identity.

Do you identify as a womyn and feel like you "should" be happy? Do you have a job, great friends, maybe a spouse/partner, children? Do you wonder why you still don't feel fulfilled? Are you searching for something more? Something that feels "right," but you're not sure what "right" is? These are common issues many womyn face and many struggle to do something about because of societal norms, "gender" roles, family obligations, guilt, or not feeling like their life and well-being is as important as those close to them.

Using a strengths-based perspective, I encourage people to think about what went right, using that as a foundation to build off of.

Therapy is an opportunity to take the time to reflect and become more familiar with what it is we want out of life in an incredibly demanding world, where we are often left with very little time for ourselves and relationships. It is my hope that we can collaborate to make our time together something that is both thought-provoking and restorative.

The challenges, difficulties, or traumas we encounter in life can make us feel anxious, depressed, vulnerable, or even overwhelmed. Psychotherapy begins with finding someone you can trust, not only to lend a compassionate ear, but also where you can reflect and discuss openly your thoughts, feelings, and actions. I believe in working collaboratively, interactively, and respectfully to create a safe space. By exploring how your ways of coping may have developed and what they may serve, we can help you discover more varied ways of responding to life's struggles, enabling you to feel more hopeful and empowered.

I love helping clients who feel stuck with anxiety, depression, or trauma become “unstuck.” In my therapy space, I strive to create a supportive environment for people to explore their emotions – and the experiences that shaped those emotions. With individuals, couples, and families, I work collaboratively to understand how previous dynamics, especially with families of origin, contribute to their current thoughts and coping skills. When clients understand how their past relationships influence their current selves, they are better able to build new futures, with greater self-acceptance, growth, new skills, and overall happiness.

I recognize that entering in to therapy can be a vulnerable and challenging experience – to speak to a stranger about your thoughts, feelings, fears, and dreams. First and foremost, I strive to create a space that feels grounding, safe, and compassionate. From this space is where I believe individuals can tap in to their inner wisdom, challenge themselves, explore their depth of mind and achieve a greater sense of understanding and peace.
