As a clinician that specializes in both Dialectical Behavioral Therapy and Perinatal Mood & Anxiety Disorders, I love to work with my clients on finding the tools and skills to tackle the roller coasters that come with life, especially in the journey of becoming a parent . Growing a family can be full of twists, turns, ups and downs, often creating heartache, grief, depression, anxiety and a whole host of other challenges before during and after a baby and within the context of your relationships. I take the approach of walking with you to empower and support you and your family in reaching your goals, whatever that looks like.

Life is difficult for all of us at times, and it can be normal to become stuck in survival mode following traumatic events or severe life stressors. My heartfelt passion is to facilitate the gap between these temporary survival modes of reaction and a lifestyle that has you or your loved one feeling safe and living in a way that feels unshakably true to yourself and your ideals.

I am a CERTIFIED IMAGO RELATIONSHIP THERAPIST. I specialize in relationship work, and my style is collaborative. I believe that my clients are looking for three things when they come into my office: 1-Encouragement that their pain or negative situation will lessen or end, 2-An opportunity to be heard and validated for their feelings and experiences, 3-A plan of action to improve their lives. My clients often report that they feel empowered after working with me. I offer more than one solution to a problem so that my clients may choose the one that best suits them.

Mental health is part of your physical health. You cannot have one without the other. No one is exempt from facing mental health struggles at one time or another in their life. It is not uncommon during times of mental health struggles, either it be an isolated incident of panic, short-term and long-term anxiety, tragedy, situational depression, or circumstances that were out of your control that caused you to have a "new normal." Therapy will alleviate these stressors through a process of personal insight, change, and opening your eyes to a new way of seeing your life and how you react to it.

Therapy, as I have practiced it for over 30 years, involves helping a client develop a new clarity about his or her life and its context. Some aspects of their life to explore are: their thoughts, feelings, values, concerns about others, and their concerns about themselves. Once a new clarity about their life is achieved, new solutions to their dilemmas will evolve. I certainly believe that clients are individuals, but I also know that they are connected to larger systems. My extensive knowledge of Individual and Family Systems allows me to work successfully with individuals, couples, and entire families.

"Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes." C.G. Jung-- You might suffer from anxiety, depression, grief, and/or relationship issues, but the key is that you are willing to explore why. My philosophy is holistic in that I feel like it is important to examine each part of life because I truly believe everything is connected when it concerns mental, emotional, and physical suffering and pain. I have recently completed a yoga teacher certification so I am able to incorporate somatic principles and movement into my work with clients.

Are you feeling overwhelmed, down or frustrated? Or is your child having a hard time with attention or adjusting to a new situation? It can be difficult to know where to turn when you’re new to these problems, or when the help you’ve gotten hasn’t been enough. I work with adults, kids, and parents who are experiencing depression, anxiety, grief, ADHD, or other parenting or mental health issues. I can help you get a handle on what’s going on and learn new ways to cope with chronic problems. While we can’t prevent every curve ball in our lives, we can learn ways to decrease our stress and improve well-being.

If you find yourself feeling stuck or overwhelmed with parenting , you are in the right place.
Accepting new clients! I'm so glad you are here. The hardest part of getting help is reaching out to make that first appointment and you are one step closer. Childhood mental health issues have been rising for awhile now and we saw an even bigger increase the past few years. Not only are our children struggling, it is hard work learning to parent our children with mental health needs. Navigating depression, anxiety, mood swings, trauma, etc is not meant to be done alone. I believe in working alongside you, your child, and family as we tackle issues together.

Trauma, abuse, codependent relationships, anxiety, and parenting are my specialties.
I want you to know what it’s like to live a life of healing. If you feel like you are drowning, overwhelmed, exhausted, or resentful - I can help. Together we will roll up our sleeves and get to work. It will get a little messy, but I’m not scared of the mess. I will support you while you learn to love the things you have previously hidden. Your pain, your thoughts, and your behaviors can all make sense when we explore them with kind curiosity. It is time to take off the shackles of your past, and live tomorrow more free than you were yesterday.
