Over the years, I've heard many clients expressed a sense of imprisonment within their own body or being 'stuck'. One client would describe 'being everywhere but nowhere' in order to portray the discord between the mind and body. Furthermore, I have encountered numerous clients who went through numerous therapy sessions in the past---only to find out that the change was not enough or even uncomfortable and confusing. As for young clients, their unspoken pain manifest in trace of scars from self-harm and other destructive behaviors. For many of them, the traumatic past has become their present stories.

My journey to becoming a therapist started when I was on the other side of the couch as a teen battling anxiety. I got treatment that changed my life. I am here to do the same. Clients describe me as energetic, warm, positive, and non-judgemental. My style is often labeled as gentle and client led. I have a heart for advocacy and am comfortable coordinating with other providers, educational systems, employers, or government agencies. My approach is based on my belief in the power of the therapeutic relationship.

Honesty. Vulnerability. Courage. If you are reading this right now you may be 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?

I am trained as both a counselor and an art therapist. I like to work with clients who have difficulty identifying or expressing their emotions. Art therapy is a way of working that helps you to express and experience thoughts and feelings when words fail. You do not need any artistic skill to do art therapy - just a willingness to explore with a sense of curiosity. I am certified in Internal Family Systems and integrate this approach into art and sandtray therapy.

I use a somatic approach and EMDR to supplement the work we do through talk therapy.
Hello, hey, welcome! My goal is to help people who have a sense of being ‘other’ feel more comfortable. Maybe you have felt different because of your life experiences, your family, how you present to the world, how you process information, or a trauma you experienced. Maybe things don’t seem to go the way you think they should and you aren’t sure why. Whatever brings you to therapy, I will meet you with compassion for your pain, respect for how you got to your current situation, and a certainty that together we can help you make changes, feel better, and create the sort of life you want.

Being able to reach a harmonious balance within and in relation to others can feel challenging at any point in our lives.

Do you have a secret? Do you seem calm and confident on the outside while on the inside you are anxious, worried and stressed? Do you feel lonely because no one really knows how you feel?

Through various models including Psychodynamics, Psychodrama, Somatic awareness, Internal Family Systems, and Mindfulness-Based modalities I will help you come back into yourself, learn to feel and breathe again, and face the demons that you have been running from.
One of the most challenging aspects of starting Therapy is finding "the right fit"- finding the therapist to who you feel comfortable opening up and who you trust can help you with your issues. My ideal client has been through therapy in the past and has not seemed to be able to get to the root of the problem. They "know" what to do, and have coping skills coming out of their ears, but can't seem to get relief. and when all else fails, old habits and negative coping skills are there to fall on. They are tired of being told, " just do x y z...." They believe there must be more to life than this and are ready for the next step.

I use mindfulness and somatic techniques for emotional regulation, and employ some psychodynamic techniques to examine and help you move past old patterns that no longer serve you.
Therapy can be a revelatory process and can bring us back to who we are at our core. I'm a therapist specializing in womanhood throughout the lifespan– managing work and burnout; the adjustment to motherhood; mid-life changes (including adjustment to LGBQ+ emergence in the family or chronic illness); and the mature woman navigating mind-body, marital, and relationship changes. I'm adept at working with you towards the best version of you, leaving behind what's no longer working and helping you build strategies for growth. Change is never easy, but it's doable with grace, humor, and the use of real tools that we'll develop together.

Working with clients to develop insight into patterns, navigate traumatic experiences, & release what weighs them down is a goal embodied with a range of integrative, somatic , & cognitive interventions.
Flow is seen as easy movement through life, but flow is found within our challenges too. Discomfort can be a catalyst to neuroplasticity & growth. Traumatic stress from past & present can overwhelm our natural rhythms & balance. Connecting to body and intuitive experience leads us along the path of healing. I help clients navigate their routes to wellness & authentic embodiment with a well exercised sense of humor, grace for self/others & common sense tools. I work to co-create & hold space for clients to understand & release trauma, from ancestral to individual, grounded in systems perspectives for de-pathologizing mental health.

We’ll get into your body and OUT of your mind, using somatic techniques such as EMDR, Internal Family Systems, and meditation.
Your anxiety just won’t go away! Every day you’re plagued with incessant what-ifs and worries about what others think. The constant striving for perfection is exhausting, as is that judgmental voice in your head that keeps telling you what you did wrong or how you’re not enough. You can’t remember the last time you had a full night’s sleep. You have tried everything, and nothing has helped. Your brain just won’t stop, and if someone tells you to “relax” one more time, you’ll lose it.
