I am currently not taking new clients. Are you feeling emotions that are difficult to handle; issues surfacing that you're ready to take a look at? Feeling stressed, anxious or depressed? Possibly your relationships are strained or unsatisfying. Maybe you're struggling with parenting a teenager, or you are a teenager wanting someone to listen? These are all areas of interest to me. I have worked with individuals, couples for over 22 years and am still amazed that while therapy is often not easy, it is truly worth the effort for most people. I have a calm, supportive, interactive style and welcome working with you.

Change—both expected and wanted or the complete opposite—affects us all, and we cope with it in varying ways. Traumatic events are never planned and often require new strategies to effectively navigate a world that may no longer feel as safe as it once had. The impact of loss, anticipated or not, deeply affects individuals, families and couples. My clinical practice is built on an investment in encouraging one’s own narrative expression of the human experience, identifying skills and strategies for living one’s best life, and providing a secure and caring place in which to grow and love change.

As a therapist who tends to soul, I believe that our sense of love and belonging (in our bodies, communities, culture, professions and families of origin) impacts us socially, cognitively, behaviorally, emotionally, somatically, spiritually, and existentially. Together we can rediscover what “home” means to you. I work with your stories, dreams, symptoms, behaviors, and mindfulness to guide you back into a full knowing of yourself, and acceptance of your path - even as you may be leaving it, physically. I specialize in the impact of personality factors and cultural knowledge on one's ability to cope with culture shock and stress.

Learning from latest discoveries in neurosciences and evidenced-based practices, I’m helping people like you overcome trauma, loss, and tragedies by supporting the first line of your defense through healthy live style change targeted to improve emotional and overall physical health. Even though all psychotherapy has the potential to change your brain for the better, as a neuro-psychotherapist, a big word for therapists who have learned how to improve your brain. In other words, I’ve learned some more direct approaches to putting you in charge of your thoughts and emotions than talking alone can do.

As someone who has been through and overcame a fair amount in life, I have a great deal of empathy as well as a nifty toolbox for those who are ready to get off the merry-go-round. You may be trying to pick up the pieces after a betrayal, or just tired of arguing about the same old sh*t or wrestling with negative thoughts that hold you, hostage. I am ready to roll up my sleeves if you are and help you sort it all out.

Integrating Trauma and Attachment-Focused Therapies, Play and Art Therapy, Mindfulness, Existentialism, and Psycho-education, I assist clients in healing and growing from what they have experienced in life. We are incredibly resilient and the strength within us sometimes needs a little guidance when we find ourselves in the dark. We will likely look at communication issues, attachment, choosing more effective coping strategies, and finding new ways to make life full and meaningful.

There will be instances when you feel "stuck" or experience suffering. The time is now to invest in yourself. Guidance from a professional outside of the current situation may provide necessary support to alleviate distress and find your path. To achieve this, I provide a warm and safe environment in which to explore areas of concern and strength. I believe our collaboration together will be key to face challenges and proceed with a more informed perspective. I have treated issues not limited to: anxiety, co-dependency, recovery, life transitions, chronic illness, abuse, childhood disorders, divorce, co-parenting, and depression.

I don't have an ideal client. I want to met people where they are at. If you've never had therapy before, it’s important to be aware we don’t start talking about the hard stuff. It can take 2-3 sessions for someone to feel comfortable enough to tell another person what they are struggling with. Therapists cannot read minds, but have studied human patterns of thoughts, feelings & actions. No one can truly know the exact consequences a person has experienced in their life. Regardless of the reason why someone is seeking therapy, there is no judgment, no criticism…just acceptance. People can heal & grow in this type of environment.

This is a period of great anxiety and uncertainty, and it's important to have extra support. Chances are, you are more compassionate towards other people than you are to yourself. Having an internal critic who never lets up on you can lead to depression, anxiety, and relationship problems.
