I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. I obtained my undergraduate degree in Clinical Psychology and graduate degree in Marriage and Family Therapy. My therapy approach is taken from an attachment theory and perspective. I believe humans are wired to feel connected and that we all greatly benefit from healthy relationships. Without this connectedness, we may experience loneliness or isolation. I provide a safe, accepting space for individuals, couples, and families using a positive Existential Therapy Model to support self-awareness, meaningful relationships, and values of life.

The primary theoretical orientations that I use are person-centered, DBT, narrative, and existential .
Do you feel stuck and unable to make changes in your life? While change is not easy, it is possible. Therapy can be a powerful tool in this process by helping you gain insight, support, and confidence to develop new patterns and behaviors. I work collaboratively with individuals to identify the sources of their pain and empower them to resolve them. You're not alone & things can improve. And if you’re wondering if now is the right time, it probably is.

My approach to therapy integrates existential -humanistic counseling, somatic experiencing, mindfulness, yoga, breath-work, and acceptance and commitment therapy.
Has life become overwhelming? Hopeless? Lonely and disconnected? Are you feeling chronically stressed and over-stimulated? Are you beginning to ask bigger questions about this life and the meaning of it? Maybe you've hit a point in life where you feel confusion about who you are and how you understand yourself. You are longing to take a new direction in life that leads to your liberation, acceptance, and sense of inner peace. I seek to work with people who are simply open to the process. There is no ideal client, but rather an ideal alliance that we can work on creating together through authenticity, empathy, and trust.

Life is difficult. Beginning the process of therapy can also be difficult, but when the process succeeds, an individual can rise above their difficulties through the collaborative work of a fellow journeyer. My ideal client is someone who has aspirations for themselves but is unsure how to satisfy or achieve them. I especially enjoy working with individuals on spiritual and existential issues to work out questions related to their understanding of the meaningfulness of life, connection with others, isolation, and freedom.

I may use depth psychological, client centered, solution focused, cognitive restructuring, cognitive behavioral, psychodynamic, existential , mindfulness and story-listening.
There are moments in our lives when we need someone to hear our personal story because it feels too overwhelming to be contained. I passionately believe people are capable of investigating, with help, their areas of emotional discomfort and self-doubts. My skill as a therapist is assisting individuals in authentically discovering their hidden stories while honoring their uniqueness. I offer the safe environment and genuine respect needed to imagine healing mind, body and spirit. People can then begin a process of making new choices and trying out new life skills.

I use mostly a narrative approach, but may have individuals and families utilizing existential techniques to work towards their goals.
Your resiliency is your super power. My mission is to empower people to rewrite their narrative based on externalizing and deconstructing techniques. I know how hard change and transformation can be, and I utilize my skills to empower others to aid in their healing process. Often times we get stuck in the cycle of telling ourselves we are unlovable and damaged. We find ourselves living out those irrational scripts we have been conditioned to feel for so long. My approach can help you move past those barriers that keep you stuck and allow yourself to find healing and purpose. You will learn to own your greatness.

I believe there is power in learning to balance our lives emotionally and spiritually. I have 20-plus years as a counselor, and have been able to help clients find emotional and general life balance. I draw from primary treatment modalities of Cognitive Behavioral, Dialectical Behavioral, Solution Focussed, Psychodynamic and Existential Theories. Ideally, at the conclusion of counseling, a client will be able to actively deal with their internal states in a way that allows them to feel more at peace with increased self esteem, and well being.

I use Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Narrative Therapy, Existential Therapy, and Mindfulness Based Therapy.
Are you spinning your wheels? Have you tried, again and again, to just get this thing called life to work for you, but nothing seems to stick? I've been there, and I get it. Our lives are the stories of our being in the world, and I work with individuals, couples, and families to look at the big picture of the story of YOUR life. We will explore not only the “how” of your life and the challenges that it brings, but also the “why” of these same issues, so that you can finally make some progress and begin to live with greater fulfillment and ease of being in the world.

I am not afraid to sit with you, hold space for your emotions, and explore your existential fears.
Until recently, you’ve adjusted to challenges by relying on personal strengths, a social circle, and your innate ability to rebound from the challenges of human existence. But something has changed. You may feel stuck, lost, confused, angry, sad, or anxious as you struggle to adjust to a new life transition. It may be a job or move, loss and grief (for a loved one, pet, miscarriage, or career), a life-threatening diagnosis, or divorce. You seek a safe, non-judgmental space to explore life’s challenges, identify meaning and purpose in life, improve decision-making skills, and enhance your intrapersonal and interpersonal connections.

I have worked with clients struggling with depression, anxiety, PTSD, personality disorders, existential concerns, death, dying, grief, loss and a myriad of other issues.
There is no need to struggle alone, and yet we often do. Our suffering may appear in many different forms; from depression to anxiety, to relationship issues, substance use and more. It’s time to shed this idea that “we have to have it all together” and let ourselves be human for a moment. In this honest space, my clients tend to become more in touch with their authentic selves and establish beliefs, values, narratives and take steps towards a more fulfilling and meaningful life.

I am passionate about healing trauma. I provide a safe space for you to turn toward your experience. A whole body-mind approach has the ability to truly heal the roots of our concerns, much more than talk therapy alone.

You've found disappointment because your life does not look the way you thought it would. Perhaps you are dealing with a major loss that has you feeling like a bomb went off in your life. Or perhaps you dreamed life would look a certain way and feel left behind, unfulfilled and unsure what you want moving forward. Or perhaps you are struggling to adjust to a life change. Even if your life looks good on the outside, you feel empty and hopeless. You cannot shake a nagging worry or sadness, and your friends and family might not understand how much your life feels like a battle. You feel alone, but you do not need to suffer in silence.
