I specialize in oppositional & treatment resistent teens and those with ADHD of all ages. In addition to addressing the disorders that go along with ADHD- anxiety, anger management, depression and substance abuse- I also work frequently with couples to improve their relationships as well as families as a whole. I enjoy my job and working to help people feel better about themselves and their lives by providing support, teaching coping skills and communication skills, solutions and feedback. I can speak fluent sarcasm when necessary and yes people with ADHD can do yoga.

I know personally how hard it can be to experience sexual/physical/emotional trauma/addiction/depression/grief/financial/relational ruin/overwhelming anxiety. Hoping to get through a day with the jaw clenching/palm sweating/handshakes/thoughts racing/heart pounding/doubting every idea/thought/emotion, asking will this be forever? Sometimes, you experience paralyzing nightmares or dreams that you are moving in slow motion, and feel so alone and isolated when in a crowded room. Moreover, the constant dread (or what I call the invisible weighted depression blanket). I get it; I've lived it and worked with many others who have as well.

I believe that we are the expert in framing our life experience and telling our individual life story. The process of healing begins when we stop asking “what’s wrong with me,” and focus more on our strengths, gifts and abilities. On our path to wellness, we examine the role of hope, the importance of taking personal responsibility, self-education, learning to advocate, and to build a supportive network to live the most productive and healthy life possible. Each of us has our own unique personalities and each session will progress forward with you the client as the focus and guided by your needs and goals for growth.

For over 30 years I have been helping people overcome life obstacles and interpersonal struggles. Clients report significant benefit when they seek help dealing with transforming ideas of self that result from trauma, relationship changes, chronic illness, grief & loss, gender dysphoria, and coming out as LGBTQ. I utilize a variety of approaches including narrative, DBT, ACT, attachment-focused therapy, internal family systems and trauma informed practices. I now am seeing clients in person as well as virtually.

Are you looking for more intimacy, depth, and authenticity with your partner? Deeper insight & awareness? More connection to what you believe in or what your value? I know and deeply appreciate the power of: "I hear you and I see you, and you are not alone." This is the essence of counseling. Together in relationship we can dive into the ecosystem that is your attachment history, hopes and dreams, survival mechanisms, and the multilayered lenses through which you view the world. I identify as sex-positive, poly-aware, LGBTQ-celebrating, kink-supportive, and sex worker-affirming. I specialize in working with couples.

When we've experienced unhealthy relationship dynamics or trauma, it can be hard to know how to trust ourselves and others. This can lead to low self-worth, codependency, repeating unwanted patterns, depression, or relational issues. Safely exploring what is at the core of these issues will allow you to live a more authentic and connected life. I work primarily with women who want to uncover their core beliefs and subconscious patterns in order to consciously create the life they desire. Unburden yourself by learning how to compassionately accept your story, process your emotions, and become the safe, loving place you yearn for.

I consider myself progressive and social justice focused but all that matters in the therapeutic relationship is what I can support my client in working through. I tend to work through a person centered lens to support my clients in processing the struggles we identify together. I'm from Brooklyn, NY and went to graduate school in Manhattan at Hunter's Silberman School of Social Work where I earned my Master's in Clinical Social Work and have since worked in a wide variety of settings with a number of diverse populations while earning my clinical license to practice therapy.

I do not have psychotherapy openings, but I do have openings for clinical case consultations with colleagues. To me, the most important things I do as a psychologist are to listen to you carefully and attentively; and to respond in such a way that you feel heard and understood on a deep level. Many people come to psychotherapy feeling their problems or symptoms don't make sense, leaving them feeling worried or discouraged. In our meetings, we will discuss your feelings and experiences, so you can learn more about what you do feel, and how your feelings do in fact make sense, given what you've been through in your life.

After 30 years of clinical experience with individuals and couples, I believe the process of psychotherapy strengthens relationships with the self and others, enhancing both insight and opportunities for growth. I bring an open mind, respect and practicality to the therapeutic relationship. I am currently offering treatment using teletherapy and in-person sessions. I am an out of network provider but am committed to helping you to receive reimbursement by your insurance and to adjusting the fee if necessary.

You already know yourself very well. And because of this- You are looking for a different kind of therapy space. You are seeking a space in which you can find humor, grace, and wonder while navigating this human experience. One in which your intuition, spirituality, and inner knowing will be honored and used as a tool to transform your lived experience. A space where context matters and is used to create new perspectives and deeper understanding. A space to unpack your stories, unravel your deepest beliefs, and become friends (yes… I said friends) with your inner shadowy parts.

Are you haunted by the past? Do upsetting memories interfere with your present-day experiences? Maybe you instinctively know that you over-react to situations that trigger intense feelings from your past. You just want to forget about it and move on. However, your emotional over-reactivity has been impacting your relationships, your job, and your overall sense of well-being. Perhaps you have avoided therapy because you don't think talking about it will help. If this is your story, then I can help. The model of therapy I use does not require you to talk about your upsetting memory. You get to decide what to share if anything at all.

Do you find yourself going through an uncomfortable period of change? Or maybe you’re facing a need for change and feeling overwhelmed by it. Either way, you may be dealing with stress, grief, isolation, or addiction. Additional factors like discrimination burden, caregiving roles, and financial difficulty may make change seem impossible. It can feel safer to live with dissatisfaction than to risk losing the comfort of routine, but avoidance can allow unhappiness to snowball. This can happen at any age. Humans grow and change throughout our lives, which requires maintenance, flexibility, and willingness to tune in to our needs.

I enjoy working with women, teens, and first responders in the areas of anxiety, stress, self-esteem, depression, relationship difficulties, trauma, and life transitions. It is within the context of our relationship with self and others that we find or lose balance. It can be hard communicating our feelings and needs with others in an effective way. I offer a whole person, mind-body approach to treatment within the context of a safe and trustworthy therapeutic relationship.

In my view, the client (or couple) who gets the most out of counseling is the one who demonstrates the following characteristics. They: (1) know what they want and are highly motivated to achieve it, (2) are willing to reflect on all aspects of their personhood--that is, emotions, thinking, and behavior, (3) are capable of taking responsibility for their own thoughts, feelings, and interactions with others, and (4) desire to become more loving of themselves and others.

My orientation as a therapist is well suited for clients looking for deeper, clearer self-connection and awareness as well as the attuned, sensitive therapeutic relationship that supports this. My approach often includes the body's wisdom along with a kind of present moment, open and curious attention - mindfulness. Given enough safety, your awareness can relax and become less habitual, more rich and intuitive, as the session becomes a space for uncovering and revising the implicit learning and beliefs that hold you in place, including troubling patterns of thought related to past trauma, attachment wounding and addiction.

When life feels too overwhelming and you can't seem to keep up, or you have lost your motivation, I will help you find your inner strength and confidence to manage and move forward.

What type of Asheville mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Asheville?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
