Deciding to seek therapy can stir up all kinds of emotions. Maybe it’s been a long time coming, perhaps the thing you used to do to get by isn’t working anymore, or maybe life recently threw you a difficult curve ball. Either way, it can feel isolating trying to figure it out alone. Friends and family can be helpful, though sometimes you just need a safe space of your own to regroup and a safe person to walk with you while you do the hard work.

So, it's come to this. You've been told by someone important to you (or maybe a stranger at the gas station) that you need to do more than just binge watch Korean comedies on Netflix or take up a hobby, like knitting or wood carving. Or maybe you just realized you want more support. So here you are. The good news is therapy is for everyone! Surprise! And I'm only going to say this a half dozen times: Therapy is far less expensive than the amount of knitting one may need to do in order to process their shit. So welcome! You are here.

Some people enter therapy with a specific problem they want to solve. Others are interested in achieving a broader goal such as psychological growth and understanding. I am happy to help you define and work towards a goal which best meets your needs. My specialties include stress and anxiety, depression, relationship and communication problems (eg. assertiveness, , intimacy issues, anger management) and self-esteem issues. In my work I draw from my training in cognitive-behavior therapy, family systems approaches, Ericksonian hypnosis, Buddhist psychology and mindfulness meditation, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy.

My approach with each client is to meet them where they are. We work together on a shared journey of discovery and problem-solving. I believe I can help people manage their lives more effectively. I particularly enjoy working with clients who struggle with who they are or what they want from life. They might feel depressed, anxious or ineffective. Many come from neglectful or abusive families. They may be newly sober or in another recovery program, but need additional help building a life.

I believe that every person has an emotional, mental, physical and spiritual life that needs to be supported and nurtured. The path to emotional healing occurs through a collaborative approach focused on enhancing personal strengths and reconnection to oneself with an increased capacity for self-acceptance and compassion. My therapeutic approach is influenced by a trauma-informed foundation utilizing the principles of NARM (Neuroaffective Relational Model), as well as skills-based therapies to improve personal effectiveness and empowerment.

As a parent, it is difficult to watch your child or adolescent struggle. Children may not know how to express their thoughts or feelings. Teenagers may not want to communicate at all. These struggles can affect school performance, peer relationships, and family dynamics. I have been a pediatric nurse practitioner for twenty years, working with children and adolescents with ADHD, ASD, anxiety, depression, mood disorders, and behavioral concerns. Pediatric nurse practitioners can assess and treat mental health conditions. My goal is to work with the patient, family, school, and therapist to help your child.

We are created for connection. All of us are searching for meaning, purpose and belonging. We are made to be in relationships with each other. Our relationships provide an opportunity for life's greatest joy and greatest heartache. All of us experience the brokenness of our world and fall short of relational wholeness. Each of us a unique combination of biology and experience, which results in unique challenges, vulnerabilities, strengths, and hopes. I believe everyone has the insight, ability, and potential to thrive in our human experience and sustain a meaningful life.
