Therapy is a collaborative process grounded in a working and trusting relationship where both client and therapist engage towards building understanding and movement. I strive to create a safe and compassionate environment where you can explore your issues and increase your well-being while identifying life context that contribute to the challenges you face. We will work to apply contextual aspects, including identities, culture, and community alignments, to illuminate both challenges and potential aspects of resolution.

I combine compassion with knowledge of scientifically based methods in my work with clients, which is both supportive and goal-oriented. I find meaning in helping individuals navigate both normal developmental transitions and crisis periods in their lives. I use an integrative approach to therapy, focusing on both gaining insight into psychological patterns and also developing mindfulness in one's every day life. By employing techniques grounded in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy and Attachment Theory I tailor my work to each client's needs.

Parenting is rewarding, but it can also be exhausting & stressful. I offer a therapeutic space where you can take care of yourself, learn new strategies, & get the support you need. Whether you are raising a new baby, an adopted child, or a teenager - you might need a place to work through issues that come up while raising kids. Many people find the demands of parenting can reveal painful experiences from their own childhood, or expose issues that were easier to ignore before having kids. You want to feel good about yourself, & good about the family you've created. You deserve to feel empowered & confident as an individual & parent.

Many of us are navigating change beyond what we prepared for. When our relationships become a source of stress, rather than the calming connection we seek out, our nervous systems protest, using coping styles designed for combat, not for love. We can push our partner away at the very same moment we need them the most. Are you worn from repeating negative patterns, longing for a clearer map to communicating needs? Marriages are healthiest when couples become shelter for each other, removing blocks to a satisfying bond. Using 30 years experience, I provide couples with personalized tools for more effective, satisfyiing relationships.

Relationships can provide the greatest joy yet create emotional pain in our lives. Anxiety, depression, shame, and trauma can be traced to a current or past relationship. Maybe you are in an unhealthy or unfulfilling relationship. Perhaps, you are experiencing a relationship loss due to a divorce or a breakup. Or you may be living with the impact of early childhood trauma/neglect. You also may be single with a longing to be in a relationship. Despite the cause of emotional pain, I believe you can heal and grow. I offer a safe environment where we work collaboratively toward a fulfilling relationship with yourself and others.
