I am a generalist client centered provider, but I also incorporate aspects of mindfulness practices, play therapy, sand tray therapy, Internal Family Systems , and psychodynamic treatment into my practice.
Welcome and thank you for taking the time to view my page! I am a licensed clinical social worker who has experience working with clients ages 5-adulthood. I have a keen appreciation in using client-centered, empathic, compassionate, and creative treatment approaches. I feel that each person is an individual and deserving of tailored and unique therapeutic care. I also believe in starting therapy where you are, not where I think we should start. This is your time to feel heard! I understand it can be challenging to take time out of your busy day to seek help, so I have lunch hours, after school/ after work hours available.

I am a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner committed to mental health treatment promotion and prevention. With a psychodynamic foundation, I integrate Internal family systems ( IFS ) and attachment theories to my treatment approach. This approach is successful with clients seeking help with adulting, relationships, families, and parenting as well as individual therapy. As an open and affirming Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner I've learned that the integration of these talk modalities are helpful for navigating life processes. Talk therapy undergirds the treatment relationship and when necessary may be complemented with medication management.

I rely heavily on Mindfulness, Self-compassion and the Internal Family Systems model to support you in your unique process of reacquainting with your true Self.
As a therapist, I hope to broaden the notion of how therapy can look and feel. In session, I seek to provide a safe, warm, nonjudgmental space where you can come and be seen and valued for who you really are regardless of what has happened to you in your life. My style adapts to your needs in the moment and varies from deeply focused and engaged to gently supportive to ridiculous and playful. Just as in life, I feel that therapy can be enhanced by a certain amount of levity, so I tend to incorporate art, movement, play, humor and profanity to facilitate communication of the full range of emotions.

I work with clients primarily using EMDR, internal family systems , and cognitive therapy to do the repair work.
What if I told you that you can stop having anxiety, intrusive thoughts or that pit in your stomach feeling? You might think, ‘Doesn’t everyone feel like this? This is just life, right?’ The answer is no! You don’t have to carry this yuck around with you anymore. Change is possible with EMDR therapy. We all have life experiences that impact us in minor and major ways that leave a lasting impression on us. Imagine a life where you have lessened anxiety or depression symptoms. You can have less inner conflict, better decision making, and enhanced self-control.

With training in emotionally focused therapy, CBT, ACT, trauma-informed care, and IFS , and experience working with couples and individual adults, I am eager to hear about your needs.
“I don't feel cared for.” “When I bring up the ‘hard stuff,’ I’m met with silence." “Whatever I give is never enough.” “Why do I feel so alone?” “We keep having the same fights.” “I just want to be heard.” If these statements resonate with you, I'm glad you've landed on my page! Navigating these struggles alone can be overwhelming. In couples therapy, I can offer effective and compassionate help for your relationship, tailored to meet the needs of your situation. Working together, we can develop the skills you need to move away from a cycle of conflict and frustration and move towards greater connection, communication, and intimacy.

I enjoy working with individuals, couples, and families. When thinking about the stages of change, I prefer to meet clients where they are; and am willing to work at a pace they feel comfortable with at the start of treatment. Individuals come to treatment with a myriad of goals and needs. Specific issues may be difficult to pinpoint. However, one of my goals in the overall process is to see clients who are open to changing their current dynamic or patterns, with the hope of a more favorable outcome.

I believe in the human spirit and the potential in humans to learn, grow and change to better our lives and the lives around us. My ideal client is someone who finds themselves in patterns they want to become free from in order to be whether they are patterns that are deeply personal, relational, or familial. There may be issues of the past that include trauma, loss, adoption, family issues; it could be more recent issues around those same things or also gender identity, sexuality, race, being LGBTQ and wanting to create a family. You may be at a turning point in your life and want to find your own voice and knowing.

Life can be tedious and overwhelming, especially when we do it with kids, work, and family. Even if we look around and see that “nothing is actually wrong in our lives”, we may still feel sad, lonely, anxious, and overwhelmed. Therapy can be very helpful in gaining the internal tools needed to cope better with our lives.

Do you feel depressed, anxious or disconnected to others? Does hurt from your past haunt you or disrupt your day? Do feelings of shame or engaging in maladaptive ways of coping make life that much harder? Sometimes life events have overwhelmed our mind and body's capacity to cope and to feel stuck in how to move forward. This can be due to past trauma or relational harm, all while battling heavy emotions. Whatever it is that has led you to this point today where you are seeking support, you are one step closer to connecting to your worth as a human and the freedom that can come from releasing the pain of your past.
