I incorporate the latest in neuroscience research and pull from relational psychotherapy, mindfulness , psychodynamic, interpersonal neurobiology and cognitive-behavioral therapies.
Life is difficult. Feeling better is possible. We all have the right and the ability to feel some peace and acceptance about our lives; the things we can control and the things we can not. We may often believe the negative thoughts we have (that we often make up) and act accordingly. You can change your life, your outlook and the way you think and feel about yourself and your relationships. I believe changes and growth occur when an individual is able to challenge their thoughts, examine their perspectives and learn how to be true to themselves.

My practice is informed by mindfulness , attachment, somatic, IFS and other systemic therapeutic theories and methods.
When holding space for change and projection towards health I believe we must look at all aspects of people's being—the mental, biological, emotional, spiritual, and cultural—to address issues being experienced. This includes providing encouragement and a safe space to explore race, gender, class, power, and sexuality. I seek to find an integrative approach with each client that best fits their needs. My clinical interest includes working with clients struggling with anxiety, depression, trauma, healthy relationships, ENM (ethically non-monogamous) relationships, blended, and non-nuclear families

I'm a psychoanalytic psychotherapist and an EFT Couples Therapist, and I'm passionate about supporting folks in embodying their personal power. I utilize deep emotional attunement between partners to promote understanding, and I work with the unconscious to understand barriers to growth with both individuals and couples. With couples, I support each partner in communicating their truths while developing a new language to understand the negative pattern that leads to escalation or collapse. Together we will use mindfulness to understand what's happening in the moment and so I can learn what supports you best.

Awareness has the power to transform, and therapy is a path to becoming more aware. It can help us understand where our patterns come from, how thoughts shape behaviors, what our true needs are and what is getting in the way of what we want. Therapy can help us have more agency, show up differently in our relationships, and find meaning and purpose in life’s challenges. In my work with clients, I draw on a variety of approaches, including psychodynamic theory, somatic practices, and mindfulness .

Whether you want to work on healing traumatic events, feel energetically drained, need emotional support, want to use an integrative mental health therapy or just need some time to experience mindfulness and release stress, art therapy can assist in your healing journey. Creating art promotes emotional awareness, reflection and processing of life experiences, and the beauty of using art therapeutically is that previous art experience is not required. I'm glad to work with clients who have never made art, or make it every day.

I am a believer in the benefits of mindfulness , breath, and movement.
Psychotherapy is something that happens between people...you and me. It is a process that I expertly and sensitively guide, but it is something that we experience together. Relationships, past and present, may be a source of pain, frustration, or fear...but they are also the key to unlocking your full potential. Together, we will work to alleviate your most pressing problems as well as to develop a fuller understanding of the deeper, underlying issues that keep you stuck in emotional and relational patterns that limit your capacity to more fully give and receive love.

Mindfulness-Based (MBCT) Therapists
For clients with chronic pain, hypertension, heart disease, cancer, and other health issues such as anxiety and depression, mindfulness-based cognitive therapy, or MBCT, is a two-part therapy that aims to reduce stress, manage pain, and embrace the freedom to respond to situations by choice. MCBT blends two disciplines--cognitive therapy and mindfulness. Mindfulness helps by reflecting on moments and thoughts without passing judgment. MBCT clients pay close attention to their feelings to reach an objective mindset, thus viewing and combating life's unpleasant occurrences.
