About

Do you feel “stuck” in repeating patterns? Do you long for a change but can’t seem to make it happen? Or have you recently made a big transition and need help adjusting? Has trauma – either a one-time life event, or an ongoing stressful situation – stopped you from living fully? I help individuals and couples identify goals and the barriers to reaching them. With a collaborative and supportive approach you will find purpose, confidence, and belonging. My approach emphasizes self- determination and collaboration, drawing on evidence-based talk therapies and mind-body approaches like EMDR, mindfulness meditation, and yoga.
Effective therapy is built on relationships: with your therapist and with yourself. Talk therapy provides the frame for our work together, and I am trained in both psychodynamic and CBT-styles. I also specialize in mind-body approaches, like EMDR, meditation, and yoga, which help you reconnect with your body and the present to overcome stress or trauma.
Finding a therapist is very personal. You are entrusting your therapist with some of the most sensitive parts of your life. Your comfort is paramount, and to that end, I offer a complimentary, fifteen-minute phone consultation to give you a sense of my style, answer your questions, and support you to decide whether you would like to set up an appointment.
