Has managing negative self-talk, regulating emotions and remembering your true self seemed impossible lately? Would you like to gain deeper introspection & feel empowered? Is the goal to feel comfortable setting boundaries, embracing change or managing anxiety? Are you exhausted from patterns of behavior that leave you feeling helpless? Perhaps you’re going through a hard transition, a relationship ending or other big decisions which will affect yourself and others and you need support. You are not alone. My relational approach includes helping create a safe place in which you feel like you can start the change process.

Choosing to live authentically is an act of courage. Life offers many opportunities to hide our true selves, sometimes even from oneself, often resulting in living far below our capacity. Taking steps to heal, recover, survive, or take life to the next level can be challenging on our own. We’ll work together to understand what you want in your life, what’s getting in the way, and how you can create opportunities to have more of what you want, empowering you to live courageously and authentically. I love working with many different concerns including anxiety, depression, sexuality, gender, parenting, and more.

A trusting relationship can often be the first step toward healing. Within my practice I use a holistic, mind-body approach including Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) to alleviate the effects of trauma in both children and adults. Trauma comes in all shapes and sizes, and tends to plague us all to varying degrees, at one time or another, whether it's the Big-T Trauma of an automobile accident or the loss of a loved one; or the smaller-t trauma a child experiences when encountering emotions that he or she can't yet put into words.

YES, I am accepting patients, including for nights & weekends. My patients are often high-achieving women, who are struggling in substantial life areas such as work or relationships OR men who may be new to therapy or looking for a different perspective. I specialize in anxiety, relational problems, codependency, and complex trauma. Workplace injustices, infidelity, parenting struggles, partner disillusionment, or existential exhaustion can be too much to navigate alone. Let me help. My approach is one of genuineness and, when appropriate, humor to encourage my clients to feel as comfortable with me as they would a lifelong friend.

I have come to understand depression as the experience of drowning under the weight of unexpressed grief. And if you find yourself struggling with depression I want you to know this: there is a path from where you are to a place that is much happier and calmer. We all suffer and struggle at some point in our lives. But just as there is suffering in life, there is a path from suffering to healing. I know this path well and I would be honored to work with you.

You may be looking for help to decrease drinking or not playing as many video games. Perhaps you and your partner have hit a rough patch and need some clarity and understanding. Maybe you realize you are carrying hurts from your past that keep showing up in your present relationships. Someone may be saying, "you should see a counselor." If any of this sounds familiar, I look forward to meeting you! I want you to feel less anxiety and more peace and to feel empowered by proactivity rather than punished by reactivity. Whether or not you're ready for counseling, I welcome your call or email.

As we move through our life there are struggles, obstacles, transitions and adjustments. Some of these are from childhood or adolescence and some are happening today. How do we show up in our life in a genuine way? How do we move forward? Starting the process to healing can be a vulnerable place. Allowing someone to walk with you can be the first step.

As a parent, nothing is more painful than watching your child/teen suffer. You'd give anything to take away their pain. Recently, you've noticed some red flags. Your child's been more disconnected, anxious, and depressed. They've been more withdrawn from friends and family. You've tried everything to get through to them but nothing has worked. Your worried they might be considering self-harming behaviors. Something has to change. As school approaches, you want to ensure they are prepared. I'm here to help your child reduce their symptoms, improve their mood, connect with friends/family and thrive in school!
