I have the honor of working with people experiencing a wide variety of concerns including: depression; anxiety; grief/loss; life transitions; chronic illness; postpartum depression; sexual abuse ; relationship problems; low self-esteem; family of origin; stress and more. My relational approach is based on the belief that within the framework of a trusting relationship with a therapist, clients can explore patterns of behavior and emotions which may relate back to earlier relationships. Once a better understanding of the origins of these patterns is developed, people often find lasting freedom from their hold over their lives.

I work with adults and adolescents, individuals, couples, and families, helping them overcome anxiety, depression, chemical dependency and other addictions, PTSD and trauma (physical and sexual abuse , rape and domestic violence), family and relationship issues, including adoption, divorce, infidelity, anger, parenting, and issues related to the legal system.
My therapy style is engaged and proactive. Clients repeatedly tell me they feel safe and accepted in therapy to explore their issues, whatever they happen to be. I ask questions and make frequent observations to help clients (1) increase self-awareness and become more comfortable with themselves and their feelings, (2) to make better choices, (3) toward greater satisfaction in their lives and relationships. My unique history helps me understand and relate to the many struggles clients face, without judgment.

Social trauma (weightism, sexism and gender bias, sexual assault , and racism) contribute to experiences such as negative body image, anxiety, eating disorders, PTSD and depression.
I am a white, ciswoman, eager to work with adults interested in integrating Somatic Experiencing work into psychotherapy, a body based trauma therapy. If you recognize that your personal struggles are connected to the pervasive impact of the social, political, structural and power dynamics in which we live, working on that connection can be powerful. Embodied psychotherapy can be helful if you are feeling stuck and flat, or anxious and feel like you can't turn off, or if you flip back and forth between anxious and despairing. I hope to support your natural resilience so you can move through the stressors of life with more ease.

I am trained in Experiential Play Therapy and Filial Play Therapy for children, and am a Certified Sexual Assault Advocate.
I believe we all have the inner power and intuitive knowledge to change, but our intuition can get blocked when strong emotions or past events overwhelm us. Working to establish a partnership of genuineness, trust, and respect for this self-knowledge, I teach tools to calm anxieties, break through fears, renew hope, and increase self-understanding. Mindfulness, relaxation, and visual art techniques, as well as play therapy with children, are often part of this process.

For couples, this might look like having very different levels of desire, struggling with infidelity, or figuring out how to manage the effects of past sexual trauma as a couple. Individuals may want to address performance difficulties, sexual pain, or struggles with past sexual abuse .
