Feel lost, stuck, lonely? Having a hard time coping with a recent trauma ? Going through a life transition? Open to a more holistic approach to therapy? Unlike regular talk therapy sessions, which may focus on surface issues and provide short term comfort, my holistic approach dives deeper for longer-term healing. My unique approach addresses the body, mind, and soul as they are all connected in the healing process.

These treatments are effective for anxiety, sleep disorders, trauma , and life transitions.
An increasing amount of people are experiencing stress, anxiety, and other uncomfortable emotions regarding the current state of our world. Now more than ever, it is especially important to take care of our emotional health as well as our physical. There are many different approaches to therapy and it is not “one size fits all.” As a therapist with extensive training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, I integrate this theory with other evidence-based treatments to address a wide range of issues. Most importantly, I focus on building a strong therapeutic bond with each of my clients through curiosity, understanding, and compassion.

The clients I work with face issues such as depression and other mood symptoms, anxiety, life transitions, trauma , and grief, as well as concerns related to self-esteem, identity, and relationships.
My approach to psychotherapy is psychodynamic, focusing on developing insight and working relationally to better understand and change patterns. I also utilize tools and perspectives from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical-Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Narrative Therapy to meet clients where they are and help them progress toward their goals. I have deep respect for the lived experiences and wisdom of each person, understanding that everyone inhabits a world with joys, pain, and sorrows that can be difficult to navigate alone. I believe that relational work can be crucial to both inner and systemic change.

Trauma has been a blessing for your career, but a "curse" for your love life. It has rewired your nervous system to become a highly driven, fiercely independent, successful person. Your ability to rise above challenges and think of creative solutions is an incredibly useful skill in your career – a skill that you first developed during trauma to keep yourself safe. While the effects of trauma has led you to great success at work, they've also caused you to sabotage relationships. Despite years – even decades – of therapy, you still find yourself stuck. This is not your fault.
