Honesty. Vulnerability. Courage. If you are reading this right now, you are probably looking to make some positive changes in your life. It takes someone that is truly honest with themselves to reach out when they need help. It takes vulnerability to talk about it. It takes courage to follow through. Sometimes we may feel stuck in life and we come to a bridge that we need to cross. Are you looking for a therapist that is real and genuine that can assist you in crossing this bridge?

Life is messy. My job is to provide a safe and nonjudgmental space that is focused on you. Your needs, your thoughts, your feelings, your fears, your dreams, and everything in between. My goal as a therapist is to help you feel heard and understood. To help you understand and accept yourself. And to help you develop the tools you need to move though life's messes in the best way possible. I am enthusiastic about working with children, families, young adults and those working though life transitions.

I am a curious and compassionate psychotherapist, calm and gently direct. I support individuals, couples, and families in more fully connecting with self and others. My style draws primarily from Gestalt: an experiential, relational, here-and-now-oriented, culturally responsive, and trauma-informed approach. This might look like mindfulness, somatic/body process, role-play, enactment, dreams, parts work, and other creative experiments. I also fluidly integrate Internal Family Systems, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Polyvagal Theory, Psychedelic/Ketamine-Assisted Therapy, and other frameworks, depending on client needs.

I believe that true healing happens when a challenge is addressed holistically, and when the client is seen as a whole person. Therapy with me is a safe space to explore your connection with any uncomfortable emotions, disruptive thoughts and behavioral patterns, as well as, complicated relationships with the individuals in your life. I am especially passionate about working with those who suffer with pain and trauma from the past and who are interested in exploring how it affects their everyday life.

Sometimes, just getting through the day can be very hard. There are so many roles that we play: Perhaps we are working, studying, parenting, teaching, coaching, not to mention shopping, cooking, maintaining a household, sharing life with someone and trying our best to do it all. Am I talking about you?

Accepting new clients! - Hello and welcome! Finding a therapist can be hard. I want to commend you for taking that first step. I approach therapy with a non-judgmental and trauma-informed lens. I use a client-centered approach and believe that the body and nervous system holds memories from our past. I strive to help you work through those memories in whichever way you feel is most comfortable. My goal is to create a safe environment that allows you to prosper. I use a variety of different interventions, honoring that you know yourself best and what helps one person, may not help another in the same way.

TELETHERAPY AVAILABLE, We might face life circumstances that seem impossible to cope with. Trusting that you can bounce back and move on can be quite a challenge during such times, but is for sure possible. I have had the opportunity to work with a diverse range of clients who have dared to hope, to seek help, and take charge of their life to create a better future. I have worked with individuals of different ages (adolescents, adults and seniors) with diverse backgrounds and life experiences.

My experience is primarily working with adults with ADHD and/or trauma. I love to help clients with ADHD build systems to help them meet the challenges of their executive dysfunction head on. As a person with ADHD myself I understand the unique challenge of feeling like you're fighting against your brain to make things happen. I have also trained in providing EMDR therapy to help reprocess traumatic experiences and negative thoughts. Trauma means different things to different people, but whatever it means to you is valid.

Do you feel misunderstood or that you can’t let anyone see who you really are? Maybe you can’t understand why your thoughts and feelings are always trying to take you hostage? Locking away who you are has made it difficult to connect with others and left you feeling alone. I love to give people the freedom to embrace and understand their emotions. As your guide, you will begin to drop the fear and exhaustion of trying to keep it all together so perfectly and embrace your own truth. You will begin to accept & love yourself just as you are!

The stories others tell about us and the ones we tell ourselves help to shape the landscape of our lives. Life is also full of profound mystery. Sometimes, we find ourselves navigating a landscape that bears no resemblance to the one we imagined. We suffer unimaginable losses, injustices and pain, and frequently there are no answers explaining why. Additionally, finding our way can be exhausting and leave us feeling sad and defeated. In those times, it's easy to forget (or perhaps, no one ever told or showed us) the truth that we absolutely matter; we are deserving of acceptance and kindness, and we are worthy of respect and love.
