I have provided therapeutic services to an array of clients over the past 30 years of working. These clients include individuals, families, couples, and groups. Overall, I have assisted individuals struggling with managing depression, trauma, anxiety, bereavement, ODD, ADHD, and thought disorders to name a few. I'm equally committed to keeping families together given the positive correlation between teen delinquency and broken families or single parents.

Breathing is the first thing we do when we come into this world and the last thing we do when we leave it. What happens when we don’t pay attention to our breathing? Are there moments and challenges that take our breath away? Do periods of heightened anxiety, depression, stress, intrusive negative thoughts, unhealthy relationships, lack of self-confidence, past traumas, grief, and loss overwhelm us to the point that we forget to take a deep breath, to take stock of life? I want to help you breathe again. Working collaboratively with you, I can help you identify meaningful treatment goals and options for healing.

We are innately wired for connection, intimacy + pleasure. However, these intrinsic values can be altered by experiences of trauma, physiological factors, + the environment. Part of our work together will center around separating who you think you “should” be as a human from who you actually are as an intersectional being. I work with both individuals + couples to develop an understanding of attachments + sexuality in order to promote intimate relationships with both the self + others. We will explore how to cultivate meaningful connections that enable vulnerability, generate deeper intimacy, unearth desires, + harness pleasure.

Too much responsibility and stress at home, school or workplace often leads to strained relationships, isolation, loss of motivation or debilitating fears.

Life can be a struggle because of our internal and interpersonal difficulties. It can also feel daunting to reach out to another for help. The courage it takes to reach out is already the change process in motion in your life. My approach focuses not simply on the shame, guilt, anxieties, doubt and traumas that bring you to psychotherapy, but what is right and where is the glimmer of change in your struggles and traumas. I address traumatic experience, grief, addiction, emotional disturbances, life adjustments, and interpersonal stressors. I specialize in addiction recovery, PTSD and emotional disturbances, and personal growth.

You’re trying to hold it together as best as you can. You are able to be there for everyone else but struggle to show up for yourself. Sometimes you just feel so down but you can’t quite figure out why. It's been going on for a while now and no matter what you have tried, nothing seems to make you feel better. It may be something from your past that you are having a hard time dealing with or may even avoid thinking about. You feel like no one gets it. So you put on a brave face each day and decide you can deal with whatever it is later. You question your every move and your relationships, thinking “something must be wrong with me"
