My approach to counseling is rooted in relational psychoanalytic work and engages people as their whole selves. I attend to what is happening in the room. This includes what is coming up in your thoughts, feelings, and body.

*I am not currently accepting new clients. Sorry!* I am an experienced clinical psychologist who has spent 15 years developing my knowledge and skills for addressing problems that occur in families such as problematic parent-child dynamics. I am also well equipped to address internalizing disorders such as depression, anxiety, suicidality, and PTSD in children, teens, and adults. While I use evidenced-based techniques that are informed by scientific research, I do so in the context of a warm and caring therapeutic relationship. I strive to understand your personal struggles without minimizing what you are going through.

Life will become complicated for all during some season. No one is exempt from that reality. The good news is that we do not have to navigate it alone and without guidance. Quality counseling is able to not only address current pain but identify the underlying causes that lead to our symptoms and "stuck" spots.

As a practitioner of Jungian, depth, and psychodynamic psychotherapy, I specialize in supporting those who feel stuck, down, depressed, or anxious; those who are searching for purpose, calling, or meaning; and those who are interested in incorporating dreamwork into the therapeutic process. Often, when we find ourselves at a standstill or in a crisis, our potential for healing and transformation comes from the unconscious side of the psyche. Since 2014, I have specialized in supporting veterans as they seek to heal and transform after war and military service, as well as first responders in search of healing.

Living authentically and creatively sounds good, right? Nurturing quality relationships is important and also difficult. Managing stress in difficult times is confusing and overwhelming. Showing up in your life *how* you want is why we are here. Helping you identify ways the past has shaped your life, the patterns that have emerged and how to implement the change you want is our priority at HTC.

I will work with you to eliminate shame and blame in order to shift to compassionate understanding to promote change and growth in the richness of the new relationship with yourself & others. It is so easy in this busy life to simply lose touch with your truth. A primary focus of our work together will be to expand your consciousness and understanding of dysfunctional beliefs in order to facilitate choice and change in regards to how you communicate and operate in your world. As you become more psychologically mature, you will then be able to live an authentic life which will foster true happiness.

Therapy helps you access your inherent ability to heal and find sovereignty. We all have the innate capacity for cultivating joy, to love and be loved; but the ways we have learned to cope with our experiences are not necessarily the strategies that will help us thrive now. Your physical and emotional experiences are messages that can help you understand your needs and values. When we learn to respond to these messages with care and wisdom, we begin to serve our deeper purpose and selves.

I find the greatest joy in working with families to repair and build nurturing relationships. Coming from a playful perspective I love to help children and their parents find their self-worth and express their true feelings in ways that they can understand each other. I utilize my training and background in child development studies to help children and parents understand each other in appropriate ways. I keep in mind that each child and family is unique, seeking to understand without judgment.

It’s okay to say, "I'm not okay." If trying to return to “normal life” post pandemic is harder than you thought & you’re sad or anxious and not sure why- you are not alone. Life is messy but good therapy ends. Maybe your life looks nothing like it did two years ago & you’re reeling and only now catching your breath and struggling to breathe. Maybe your life looks the same and you feel different but you’re stuck, overwhelmed and don’t know what to do next. What we allow will continue & lasting change requires work. Often starting the work & reaching out is a daunting task but when we avoid our stories, that's when they define us.

I provide a therapy called ERP (exposure and response prevention) for people with OCD. If you’re reading this, you probably know that OCD can take on a life of its own. My clients are trying their best to keep themselves and their loved ones safe, yet OCD can become incredibly time consuming and take attention away from the very activities and people that matter most. With treatment, my clients are increasingly able to feel a sense of safety in their lives and join others instead of needing to control the moment.

Overwhelmed? Everyone needs help occasionally through life transitions. Do you have trouble saying no? Do you feel like you do not value yourself enough or have difficulty setting boundaries? Do you have traumatic or abusive experiences (or episodes of panic)? Do you overanalyze things? I have extensive helping experience with these and other issues. I work to get to the root of these issues.

Life is hard, and everyone needs support at one time or another. If you're experiencing anxiety, depression, tough relationships, or difficult transitions, you're not alone. You might lack confidence in your recent life choices. You might feel as if you don't have many options right now. You might feel stuck in a never-ending cycle of the "same old". Again, I say... you're not alone.
