Waitlist for new clients
In my practice I work with families and children who have experienced trauma and are having attachment difficulties. Many children I see have pre-verbal trauma from parental stress during pregnancy, adoption, neglect, or abuse. Some of the children I see are experiencing traumatic stress due to gender fluidity or gender dysphoria. Because trauma is the result of feeling helpless in a situation, many of the families I see have never thought of their child's behavior as a symptom of a life trauma. This shift in perspective is often the beginning of the healing process.

Anxiety leaves us feeling exhausted. If you are a young woman dealing with anxiety, you may be fed up with school or work insecurity, struggling to connect with friends, and relentlessly ruminating over past mistakes. You might not even remember a time when you didn’t feel this way. But one thing is for sure: you’re ready for some relief. You’re ready to breathe easier. You’re ready to feel more like yourself. Most of all, you are ready to take control back from anxiety and show up as the person you really are.

Therapy is an experience where human beings learn to live differently. Differently is the key word. Different can look like less depression, more spontaneity, or deeper and more mutual relationships. Different can be learning to say "yes," "no," or "maybe." Different can be improved physical health, less anxiety, or sustained sobriety. When one begins treatment there's usually a percolating idea of what needs to be different. Helping you clarify the ways you'd like to live differently, what has gotten in your way up to this point, and how those changes can be made is psychotherapy.

Often times, how we feel about ourselves, others, and situations have a lot to do with the stories of our lives and problems that arise in social, cultural and political contexts. I collaborate with clients to create alternate stories that creatively solve their problems and increase their fulfillment in life. As a result, I am very committed to understanding and incorporating cultural aspects of the client's life into treatment. I view therapy as a collaborative experience where we select goals/objectives that will help you become the person you want to be or experience the relief you seek.

I have extensive experience and training in supporting people in working through their trauma and the issues and conflicts that arise from facing powerlessness and feeling out of control of one’s life. Trauma is not measured by the event itself but by the perception of the person who has experienced it. At times dark memories from our past can be triggered by current events, life changes, or present issues. This may cause our daily life and relationships to suffer. It may feel as if a part of our self is lost. These difficulties and disconnection from our true self can arise regardless if one has experienced a past or recent trauma; life itself can be at times difficult to navigate due from life stages and changes, death of a loved one, parenting issues, relationship problems and/or chronic pain or illness. During these times self-reliance, and established support systems are not enough. My career focus is empowering teens, adults and older adults through openness, understanding, therapy, and healthy coping skills; to confront and work through, those conflicts and issues that prevent overall wellness, peace and contentment in their daily lives.

A basic theme in behavior can be viewed as a directional thought process. If we think it, believe it, we can become it. This thought process can apply to how one handles a problem. There are times that problems interfere with daily life in such a way that it grows into an overwhelming place of emotional discord in our personal and/or professional lives. Stress, anxiety, depression, and premarital/marital issues can be metaphorically high on the Richter scale for mental health therapy. These factors can also be connected to deeper issues related to human behavior. Welcome services are provided for individuals, couples, and families.

Unbeknownst to many, the stigma associated with "therapy" is lifting. Society is waking up and realizing overall health needs to be a non-negotiable. My passion lies in supporting & educating clients on brain/nervous system health; increased awareness on thought/behavioral patterns that exacerbate overall stress, feelings of unworthiness, and unhealthy cycles. My ideal client is ready to do some hard work and be challenged, curious and brave enough to look inside, get honest with self, work on vulnerability, and face their fears. Together, we will identify and dig out the roots that no longer serve them and plant new seeds.
