More often than not, we can find ourselves cruising on autopilot amidst our busy schedules and various responsibilities. There does not seem to be enough time to take a pause and allow ourselves to “just be.” We may suddenly find ourselves feeling disconnected from others and feeling like we are not living our lives as fully as we would like to. I believe that we strive for a deeper connection to others, our surroundings, and most importantly to ourselves, which is why I believe that therapy can be used as a vessel to explore unfulfilled needs and discover our authentic selves.

Our emotions and feelings take a toll when they go unaddressed, affecting our relationships, self-worth and general life satisfaction. So often, these emotional problems stem from our family-of-origin and past wounds that are silenced. While we can feel that something is wrong, the path to healing, recovery and health can feel messy and out-of-reach. Our feelings are not a reflection of reality because we can experience freedom from the dysfunctional patterns in our lives. I specialize in treating adults with: 1) Mood & Anxiety Disorders, 2) Relationship & Couples Issues, 3) Trauma & Borderline PD and 4) AsAm Mental Health.

Life demands so much from us on a daily basis. Our bosses want more of our time, our partners are slow to show love but quick to start an argument, and our families always seem to ask for more. Therapy is your space to escape from these demands, to take a breath and realign with who you truly are. I am passionate about helping clients illuminate ways they may enhance their relationships, embrace their true self, and gain the self-confidence needed to thrive in life.

I specialize in sexual issues and persistent psychogenic pain. Both of these realms entail working through trauma, anxiety, grief, impulsivity, and depression. In sex therapy, I help clients grappling with issues around functioning, sexual shame, sexual trauma, impulsive behaviors, sex and porn "addictions," low and hyper-arousal issues - all from a sex-positive, kink/poly/bdsm-friendly stance. I also help couples navigate challenges in their intimate relationships. With chronic pain and discomfort, I help people change their relationship to the symptoms, which leads to drastic reduction and often elimination of symptoms.

You don’t have to go through your quarter life crisis (or any crisis) alone… especially during a pandemic! In these unprecedented and uncertain times, you might be constantly worrying about the future or unsure of your place in the world. Maybe you keep comparing yourself to others and struggle with maintaining healthy relationships and setting boundaries at work and at home. Former ways of coping such as traveling and socializing with friends have come to an abrupt halt, and you might be having trouble finding new ways to manage your anxiety, depression, and unresolved trauma.

I believe therapy is a process in which people nurture their strengths and understand the experiences that have shaped their lives. Together we can reach greater clarity as we explore the thoughts that bring us joy and the triggers that cause us pain and sadness. With over 15 years of experience working with adults and teens, I have helped people who live with depression, anxiety, PTSD, and who are making major life transitions live fuller and happier lives. Sessions with me are a very interactive process that blends cognitive based therapy and mindful practices with natural humor and compassion.

While 'regular therapy' focuses on the past and the emotional wounds that come with it, coaching focuses on goal setting and taking action, understanding our present and finding ways to create a brighter future. It's about changing old habits, developing new ones, embracing change and moving with ease towards a more fulfilling life. Hypnosis is a form of guided meditation that works with the subconscious, where our habits, memories and emotions are stored. Combining life coaching with hypnotherapy brings about the most beneficial results, engaging both, the conscious and subconscious, empowering people to achieve lasting, positive results and enhanced mental / emotional attitudes.

Imagine life if your "problem" disappeared. Really, take a moment. Picture a world free of the burden that holds you back, keeps you silent, leaves you feeling lonely. On one hand, you crave that freedom more than anything, yet I'm sure you're questioning whether it's even possible to rid yourself of this pain -- this shame, addiction, depression, sleepless nights, unfulfilled relationships -- whatever it might be. But I'm here to remind you that change is always possible, if you put in the work. New beginnings are around the corner, if you take that first step. Because second chances are not guaranteed.
