I have succeeded with problems of depression, abuse and trauma recovery, "anxiety", panic, lack of meaning in life, social fears, shame, anger, and lack of confidence.
My goal for every individual, couple, or family I work with is not just to solve problems but to achieve actual long-term happiness. I do a developmental, growth-oriented style of therapy, best suited to intelligent adults, couples, or families interested in permanent solutions to emotional difficulties such as depression, inter-personal conflict, loneliness, lack of meaning, insecurity, panic, or anger. Therapy as I practice it will change how you understand yourself and other people, how you react to life events, and most important of all, how you feel on a day-to-day basis.

Loneliness and anxiety are pervasive in our society today. Many of us feel overwhelmed with the stressors of daily life and that overwhelm is compounded by depression, anxiety, past trauma, abuse , or current marital and parenting difficulties. We long to not feel alone anymore and to talk with someone who can understand and help.

Sometimes, life imposes barriers or rifts on our path, leaving us lost or stuck, uncertain of how to move forward. I support those who arrive at this place by holding a container for deeper self exploration and encouraging one's remembrance of their innate ability to heal and grow. Individuals connect with me for a trusted space to tend to wounds of developmental and ancestral trauma, sexual and domestic violence , and grief and loss. Others seek me out for support in cultivating an integrated awareness of themselves, their relationships, and their part in our world or to prepare for and process psychedelic journeys.

I am trained in working with a large number of psychological issues, including substance abuse and personality disorders, across all demographics and ages.
Because no two patients are alike, therapy should be tailored to each patient, rather than trying to treat everyone with the same theoretical approach. I believe that a therapist’s job is to guide the patient as they learn to change the behaviors and thinking styles that may have once been helpful, but are now getting in their way. Most importantly, I believe it is a therapist's job to teach their patients the skills necessary to eventually function independent of their therapist, allowing them to eventually leave therapy instead of being stuck with having weekly sessions for the rest of their lives!

Domestic Abuse Therapists
Domestic abuse can be physical or psychological, and it can affect anyone of any age, gender, race, or sexual orientation. It may include behaviors meant to scare, physically harm, or control a partner. And while every relationship is different, domestic abuse and violence typically involves an unequal power dynamic in which one partner tries to assert control over the other in a variety of ways.
