An area of focus in my practice is working with parents, couples and families in times of adjustment and transition, particularly in the early years of parenthood. Parenthood can be very demanding especially when you're trying to maintain a career and relationships with your partner, family and friends. I work with clients to give them communication tools and self-care strategies as well as increasing self-awareness and personal insight.

Here's what I believe: Your emotionality is one of your greatest resources. When we can understand our emotions as information, not instructions, we have access to all of the rich insights they provide to us about ourselves and the world around us. As a holistically oriented therapist, my work weaves together Western psychological theory with Eastern traditions of spirituality, infusing sessions with practices to assist you in developing self compassion, mindfulness, Emotional Fluency and a reconnection to your body and it’s wisdom.

I am especially passionate about treating eating disorders. I see clients of varying age groups with a particular focus on adolescents, transitional age youth and young adults. Changing one's behaviors and psychological states is a process and I aim to meet clients where they are at in terms of their readiness for change. In addition to specific graduate training and many years working at Stanford Health's inpatient eating disorder unit, I also have lived experience dealing with disordered eating, and find that my own recovery journey benefits clients and serves as a reminder that recovery is attainable.

GASLIGHTING; NARCISSIST ABUSE; CODEPENDENCY; TOXIC ATTACHMENT; HI-CONFLICT RELATIONSHIP: Gaslighting is a form of psychological/emotional abuse where the abuser manipulates situations repeatedly to trick the victim into doubting his/her own memory, perception & sanity. You're accused of doing something that you know you didn't do or say. Often belittled, demeaned, and raged upon. You walk on eggshells & constantly need to watch what you say for fear your partner might blow up. You often feel confused & now distrust yourself; have trouble making decisions & feel like you lost yourself or don't know the person you used to be.

Let’s be honest. Life can be messy. If you’re seeking help exploring personal issues, navigating a difficult relationship, or finding parenting overwhelming, perhaps I can help. My approach as a holistic strength based therapist is guided by a fierce belief renewal is available for all who seek it out. It’s not easy work. My questions tend to go deep, I'm direct, and my own journey has reinforced a truth everyone needs a place to be seen, heard, and honored without judgement. We’ll likely travel difficult personal terrain, probably find time to laugh, and may get stumped together...which can be a vital part of the healing process.

Choosing to begin psychotherapy opens yourself to the experience of self-discovery, reflection, and growth. This decision may feel exhilarating or scary, as self-work often requires courage and a willingness to examine aspects of life which may have gone unattended for some time. But truly, beginning psychotherapy reflects an inner desire and commitment to enhance the parts of yourself and your life which are working well, and to explore, and ultimately make changes in the parts you would like to be different.

We are living in a surreal time. Things that may have felt difficult prior to the pandemic carry a very different load now, as we learn to navigate life with Covid. While the idea of therapy may have felt radical before, it can now offer us a roadmap to developing greater internal strength to steer through the uncertainty. It is deep within our unconscious that we meet our true selves and can then begin the profound work of developing mechanisms for the lives we are seeking. I view it as a great privilege to bear witness to the strength that emerges from the courage of confronting the vulnerability of our own psychology.

My approach is creating a safe space for this wisest self to navigate the way. My style is compassionate and direct; I believe transformation happens when we can see ourselves clearly, with curiosity, and without shame or judgment.

I am curious about the inner stories that make people who they are. I became more in touch with my inner story after being pushed towards therapy by challenges I faced in my own life. Through therapy, I learned that old beliefs are like knots, and therapy can help you untangle them. The key to understanding my inner story was to pay attention to the wisdom of the body. Our bodies can communicate things that our mind does not know; getting in touch with this knowledge helps us become aware of our emotions.

Therapy is a relationship. My role in therapy is to walk with you through the exploration process. Ultimately, this relationship-building endeavor leads to more present, choiceful, and connected experiences. I'm interested in present moment awareness. Together, we follow the thread of aliveness. Sometimes, more than one "part" of you is alive in the moment. Inviting in these parts can provide an opportunity to build a relationship with them.
