“Sensitivity isn't being wimpy. It's about being so painfully aware that a flea landing on a dog is like a sonic boom.” This is a quote from a favorite musician of mine, Jeff Buckley. I see sensitivity as a strength, not a deficit. As a therapist, I work hard to help my clients understand that oftentimes the parts of themselves that they view as weak are really their greatest strengths. The stories we tell ourselves about ourselves are very important. They are the lens through which we view everything- they color our world. The problem is that a lot of the time the narratives we have about ourselves are simply not true.

I work along side clients to explore the issues they bring to therapy, using a variety of therapeutic techniques, including cognitive behavioral, mindfulness, biofeedback, EMDR, and experiential therapies. I have reduced my practice to working with domestic abuse, since I am working on a book for DV survivors. When clients present with anxiety and/or depression, I assess whether it's the result of stress or trauma, or is biological. I work with those who do not want medication, and also recommend a medical evaluation when progress is not being made, respecting the client's right to decide. I am a good listener and also give people feedback when appropriate.

As a counselor, I utilize a family systems approach in my work with adolescents and their parents in order to assist with restructuring of communication so that individuals can feel heard, respected and have their ideas validated. I also work hard to eliminate cultural biases and meet the client's where they are based on their individual needs. Additionally, I began my training in couples counseling and continue to support couples in appropriately communicating their needs as they develop mutually supportive behaviors together. Another area of focus I enjoy is assisting members of the L.G.B.T.Q community with their specific needs.

Real change lies in a person’s willingness to become more of who they really are rather than trying to become what they are not. You are not a problem to be solved or fixed. Competent therapy offers no gimmicks, no quick fixes-- what matters is a willingness to explore who you are rather than who you "should" be. I cannot promise quick and easy relief from your suffering. What I can promise is my full attention and engagement. Every difficulty is an opportunity; perhaps not a welcome opportunity but your struggle has meaning—that you are not satisfied with the status quo, that you have not given up.

I understand that starting therapy can be a scary process. I work to create an open and inviting atmosphere for everyone who walks through my door. It is important to feel like you have a "good fit" with your therapist, which is why I take the time to listen to what brings you in, hear your personal goals and explain what you can expect from therapy. It's not my job to judge, blame, or take sides. I will work with you to provide applicable tools and resources, identify your personal strengths and offer new ways of communicating to provide relief.

Chocolate, snowboarding, and shopping can be therapeutic, but sometimes they're not enough. I see teenagers, adults, and families when struggles get in the way of fun and suffering becomes too familiar. Friends and family hopefully are there when we need them, yet therapists can provide additional essentials: nonjudgmental, individual attention in a safe setting. Relationships are central to our well-being, and the therapy process involves building a relationship. Clients lead, and I listen to your goals and help you to identify unhealthy patterns, reduce negative self-talk, and learn more about how you view yourself and the world.

We are in the midst of a challenging social transformation. Everyone is affected in their own unique ways --- with increased anxiety or stress, deepening despair and grief, or more urgent questions about relationships, work, and community. As a clinical sociologist, I am well prepared to work with clients feeling the impact of the current social upheaval on their mental health, their relationships, their careers, and their worldviews. I'm especially familiar with the challenges of people working in health care, education, and "essential worker" gigs, as well as with people in marginalized communities.

I enjoy working with each client individually to match their treatment needs and desired changes with the method of treatment. I also specialize in resolving distressing and/or traumatic life experiences. These experiences often keep us stuck in behaviors that are baffling and even debilitating a times. Efforts to change often feel overwhelming and defeating. Through EMDR and other creative strategies, I have assisted many clients to realize new behavioral patterns and positive beliefs about themselves. I believe the reprocessing of psychological distress provides individuals in depth healing and renewed emotional freedom.
