Are you often told that you "need to relax," that you're "Type A," or that "you should slow down"? Do you feel stuck in an endless cycle of worry, stress, or depression? Are you ready to make your mental health a priority but don't know where or how to start? If being able to just relax seems unachievable and hopeless; I want you to know that change is possible. Together we can help you develop healthier coping skills, establish appropriate boundaries, and gain new insights about yourself and your life situation.

I primarily utilize Somatic Experiencing and attachment theory to help clients get to the root of their anxiety, disordered eating, body image struggles, perfectionism, and many other concerns.
We might be a good match if you suspect that past experiences are affecting you, if you are seeking a deeper connection with yourself and others, or if you’ve tried other types of therapy but haven’t experienced lasting healing. I believe the body naturally wants to move toward healing and use this approach through my work with trauma, anxiety, and stress. I am passionate about equipping people to work through past, present, and future challenges and strive to be a peaceful and supportive presence in the process. I believe therapy is a place for laughter, tears, connection, and healing.

It is never too late to begin deep and meaningful work reimagining how traumas or other experiences can become integrated, meaningful parts of our lives and ourselves, rather than barriers or obstacles. The key to this important work is the recognition that your story and has deep and significant meaning.  No detail is ultimately insignificant, if we can but muster the courage, patience, and presence required.  I will help you!  I am so eager to understand and explore with you, and help create a safe space that ultimately facilitates not just growth and transition, but true healing and transformation.

I specialize in working with successful professionals who experience depression, anxiety, and relationship problems.
Everyone thinks you have it all all together, but inside it feels like you're spinning out of control. You can’t stay focused. Simple tasks that should be easy feel totally overwhelming and you've started avoiding them completely. Your relationships are suffering and you feel like it’s all your fault. You want to be easy-going and caring, but you're impatient and irritable. You want to be sociable and fun, but you're withdrawn and depressed. The fear of being exposed as a fraud looms over you constantly. You’re hanging on by a thread and it's only getting worse.

Whatever struggle is motivating you to start counseling, something inside is knocking. The knock may be feeling depressed, anxious, angry, or overwhelmed. It may be feeling disconnected in relationships and from what is meaningful in your life, a sense of emptiness or lack of purpose. It may be unresolved trauma. To answer that knock means to turn inward, which can be challenging and uncomfortable at times, yet I whole-heartedly believe the life you seek is patiently waiting. The pain you are experiencing is actually an invitation for healing and growth. Answer the knock. When things break down, breakthroughs happen.

I help youth and adults with stress, anxiety and depression, who are tired of pretending everything is okay.
Do you feel like you have been treading water for ages, barely able to keep your head above water? Or maybe you couldn’t tread any longer and have just been drowning? Maybe you’ve been searching for a lifeline, a pathway back to you. The you before all the hurt, pain, and confusion. You, who had a strong sense of self and who was not afraid to live authentically and vibrantly. But every time those bad experiences rise to the surface, you push them down. And the truth is that pushing it all down is just as tiring as you imagine addressing them head on would be. I know that you're tired of saying you’re okay when you are far from it.

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and a Registered / Board Certified Art Therapist working with adults, adolescents, and children. My approach to therapy begins with forming a safe, therapeutic relationship that allows you to explore life transitions, emotional pain, or other symptoms, such as anxiety, depression, addiction, or eating disorders. We will move beyond symptom management and help you to identify and develop understanding of the deeper meaning of the presenting symptoms. Often, the symptoms are external manifestations of conflicts and core beliefs rooted in the inner world or attempts to avoid the pain of past and current life experiences.
