"Do you have a persistent feeling of "not good enough" that follows you from work to relationships to family? Does your mind race with thoughts about what you could have done better or how you disappointed someone? Other people might tell you that you work really hard, but your inner critic says it is not enough. You often feel self-critical and overwhelmed.Sometimes you are so paralyzed by anxiety that you can't finish work projects, make phone calls, or see friends. I can help you learn to manage anxiety, silence your inner critic, and feel good about yourself."

"Is the Past, Gender Expression, or Anxiety making choices instead of You for a full and happy life? (and not doing a very good job of it?) Are you feeling just maxed out every day; sometimes starting from the moment you wake up? Do you feel stress that overwhelms your body's capacity to cope? If so, you may be looking for a therapist like myself. I have personal and professional experiences in all these areas and can understand through shared experience and collaboration how to help you get back in charge of your choices."

"Reaching out for help often takes time--there are so many reasons we give ourselves for putting it off! I recognize your courage for being here at this time. You are at the point in your life or in your relationship, in which taking action towards healing feels necessary. With warmth, creativity and insight, I help people who are yearning to live an authentic life - a life that is real, instead of perfect. One in which you learn to listen to your inner wisdom, to express your thoughts and feelings, and to face challenges with courage and integrity."

Ultimately, however, the motivation for change and understanding and the work toward them are the responsibility of the client. I work to accompany and assist the clients in their journeys toward a better understanding of themselves and their relationships, as well as the resolution of interpersonal and intrapersonal issues."

""And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom" -Anaïs Nin. There are times when we feel lost, confused, even fearful. Perhaps we find ourselves at a crossroads, undergoing life changing experiences. We want to deepen our relationship to all aspects of our lives, and may feel we know where we would like to be, but cannot find a foothold, or begin the journey alone. If any of these relate to your life situation, you are probably ready to enter into the therapeutic process."

With adults, I believe we can address current struggles and pain, as well as explore your past experiences to help heal the parts of you that have been hurt, abused or mistreated. Children are living in the part of their lives that will forever affect them as adults.

But, therapy is a long-term investment in yourself and in your desire to live a fuller, more satisfying life. I work with clients struggling with sadness, depression, anxiety, loss, anger, grief, loneliness, and isolation. Other areas of specialty in my practice include relationship and communication issues, early childhood and adult trauma, domestic abuse, life transitions, including employment transitions, parental and sibling relationships, eating and body image concerns, and self-awareness and self-care."

EMDR is a psychotherapy technique that enables people to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress that are the result of disturbing life experiences. EMDR therapy shows that the mind can in fact heal from psychological trauma much as the body recovers from physical trauma. Using the protocols and procedures learned in EMDR, clinicians help clients activate their natural healing processes."
