I am encouraged by the resilience of the human spirit. We have an incredible ability to heal and make meaning out of our lives. Within a comfortable therapeutic relationship that is built on trust, the power of telling ones story is transformative and can provide the fuel for making courageous life changes. I work with a range of issues and disorders, including depression, grief, anxiety,attachment and relationship struggles. I have years of experience in trauma recovery work with survivors of violence and sexual abuse. In my work I offer authenticity and direct communication as a compliment to my knowledge base.

I believe that clarity regarding who you are, what you believe, and why you believe it are among the greatest predictors a good and joyful life. I also know that a "joyful life" can sound absurd when you're struggling with depression and anxiety. My clients and I talk about their ideals and underlying beliefs and joys as context for their struggles. Together we examine the presumptions and expectations that--when left unchecked--lead to *so* much heartache. We work together to create a narrative of what could and might be instead, along with a solid plan for how to bring new realities into being.

Stress, anxiety, uncertainty, and fear can feel overwhelming. You may find yourself turning to drugs or alcohol, harmful eating patterns, self-harm, or fall back on other old habits to cope with your emotions. You may be struggling with anxiety, stress, depression, or fear. Maybe you are in recovery from addiction or an eating disorder, and are having trouble maintaining your progress. You may be navigating your gender and sexual identify. Or perhaps you are concerned that your teenager is dealing with some of these issues. Whatever you are facing, you are not alone! I am here to provide support, guidance, and encouragement.

I believe in using therapy as a means to help people find the tools within themselves to move toward positive mental health and overall wellness. I believe in support over solution; in walking with someone to face their unique issues however they need rather than “fixing” them. As a social worker, I consider the “whole person” and the systems impacting them to offer a positive therapeutic experience to every client and help them to feel seen, heard, and supported. I specialize in using EMDR with neurodivergent folx who may feel less-than, not good enough, inherently wrong, etc.

My practice is with clients seeking emotional well-being, a deeper sense of themselves, and an improved ability to cope with the distress that accompanies life's challenges and problems. My approach is shaped by the principle that we all have a basic need to feel safe and to know that we matter. My work is informed and guided by the knowledge that a significant number of people dealing with emotional/mental health problems, and many of those who use alcohol and/or drugs, have experienced some form of childhood or adult abuse, trauma, neglect, invalidation, or chaos.

I believe that we live in challenging times. Many people find it difficult to feel confident and self assured, have peaceful, fulfilling relationships, navigate the demands of finances, family, work and home, and also focus on nourishing self care. These challenges are interconnected. They are related to how we have developed our sense of self in the context of family expectations and experiences, societal demands, cultural assumptions, and media influence. It is necessary for all of us to learn how to live our best lives in these particular circumstances. You are not alone.

This life can be very challenging and bewildering. I offer supportive and inquisitive presence as we work together to resource your nervous system, deepen self-attunement, and cultivate resilience during times of stress, grief, life transitions, relationship changes and spiritual explorations. I believe our body is highly intelligent and can help us tune into the wholeness of our inner being when we practice listening, attuning, tracking, and responding to the messages of our body.

Life is a funny thing. And often terribly complicated. During our journey in this world, we often face challenges that can feel too big or ongoing. Whether it’s with chronic feelings of anxiousness, depression, emptiness, issues about sexual orientation, gender, or ethnicity, relationship conflict, sleep disturbances, substance misuse, school or work issues, or any combination of those, many of us struggle silently. But you don't have to. It can help to work with a therapist with a deep understanding of what it’s like with some of those struggles and who is passionate about helping others learn to thrive despite these adversities.

Licensed in North Carolina and Colorado, I work with adolescents and adults seeking a way towards brave and engaged living, working through challenges that get in the way. My belief is that at our core we are fearless, clear, and compassionate. In therapy we work together to identify what is blocking you from that core, and set about clearing the way for your authentic self to emerge. I have worked over 30 years in mental health, 20+ years as a licensed clinician. I also bring experience of training clinicians and supporting them in leadership roles, most recently as the CEO of a wilderness therapy program.

I have a passion for helping children, teens, and adults find ways to gain control over the improvement of their quality of life.

I have experience with helping my clients learn reliable social skills, mindfulness techniques, and other skills that can be applied to their general wellbeing. I am also experienced in helping guide individuals through CBT who have struggled with post-concussive, PNES, psychosomatic, and functional neurological symptoms.

Having worked in a variety of settings, including 15 years in wilderness therapy, I've found that there is something wonderfully inviting about working together in quiet outside spaces (or utilizing teletherapy in these times of Covid-19). Optimally I help clients utilize their individual strength, values and insight to help find a more peaceful state of mind and lifestyle. As human beings we are meant to build meaningful connections, and sadly there are an overwhelming number of deterrents to building those relationships with self, others, community, etc. We can and will tackle those difficulties together.

Once the cells of the body know the experience of safety, honesty and trust within one relationship it can then emulate the experience in other relationships, this is the healing power that counseling offers. And without the elements of safety, honesty and trust the brain holds on tightly to old ways of being which makes change difficult. I am committed to offering all of my training, skills and experience in the service of creating a healthy, collaborative therapeutic relationship that fosters personal growth and healing.

Do you feel stuck? Stuck in worry, guilt, fear, sadness, or rage? Or maybe you are tired of being tired, tired of anxious thoughts keeping you up at night. You may feel stuck in the cycle of unhealthy eating behaviors, the effects of trauma, or having difficulty asking for what you want and need, or even knowing what you want or need. You want something different. I see my role as a guide for you. I focus on helping you reconnect to your wisest, most, compassionate and loving self. Having connections with your wise self will give you more clarity, power, creativity and compassion for your life and to connect with those around you.

You've tried everything and your child is still scared or angry and think they can't change. I work with children ages 3-13 to feel better and get along. They're not to blame for what's happened in their lives but do need to take responsibility for their actions. I support kids in not feeling broken or thinking they are "bad". I use play, art projects and stories to help them express feelings. I teach them skills to understand and manage their feelings and teach them to share their feelings to get support and feel safe.

I enjoy working with people who want to deepen their sense of self, build stronger relationships, recover from the impacts of personal trauma, develop better coping skills, interrupt generational and collective trauma patterns, move through anxiety and depression, and find ways to navigate the state of the world while still finding joy, ease, love, belonging, and meaningful resistance to harmful and oppressive systems. In the past I have worked with adolescents in wilderness therapy, with survivors of sexual and domestic violence, with college students, and with immigrants and their families.

Life is really rough right now in so many ways! We have never experienced anything like what we are experiencing right now. Life has been flipped upside down, anxiety is sky high, depression is increasing, relationships are suffering, and those with children are being forced to become homeschool teachers. The sense of balance in our lives has been thrown out. We feel stuck, depressed, anxious, and maybe even hopeless. It is really important to take care of yourself in this space and reach out for help, to talk things through, and figure out how to move forward in a positive direction. You don’t need to stay stuck in this space.

The journey of thousand miles must begin with one step - Lao Tzu. In a battle with your emotions or body? I am a DBT-certified therapist (have practiced DBT for 15 years), and an Intuitive Eating certified therapist. I see therapy as a journey we take together; you’re the driver and I'm the helpful passenger or tour guide :) I have been a licensed therapist for 15 years, supporting folx with mood disorders, emotion regulation challenges, body image issues, and issues of race and gender. I want to provide support as you create a new chapter in your life, gain insight about yourself, and help you develop healthy coping skills.
