Are you coping with stress, relationship difficulties, or loss? Feeling overwhelmed or consumed by intense emotions and thoughts? Distressed by memories of the past or worries about the future? We all need help navigating these understandable human struggles at times. Maybe you are aware of what isn't working and want help figuring out how to take steps toward change. Maybe you are confused about why you feel so stuck or unhappy. Maybe you have already invested time, money, and energy, with mixed results or limited success. It's common to feel uncertain about how to move forward or whether therapy is the right next step for you.

Together we'll craft a tailored plan that builds on your strengths and targets your specific struggles, drawing from the science of what works to select evidence-based approaches that resonate with you and meet your unique needs. Through a supportive and action-oriented approach, my goal is for you to end our work feeling differently than when you started.

As a nationally-recognized expert in the areas of stress and trauma, I source from a wealth of experience in our work. I received my doctorate from the University of Oregon and trained at Yale and the National Center for PTSD. If you think we may be a good fit, please consider a free consultation or visit my website to learn more about me and my practice.
