I have a particular interest in working with women and couples around issues of infertility and pregnancy loss.
I AM NOT CURRENTLY ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS. People's reasons for seeking therapy are as varied as the individuals themselves. For some, therapy is part of a broader approach to life in which insight and inner work are seen as core elements to living well and expansively. For others, the step to seek therapy is taken out of pain and suffering and after much deliberation. At times our internal experiences are so painful, they prevent us from fully engaging in our lives and relationships. Therapy can help you learn to hold with care and confidence all your thoughts, feelings and memories while moving through life in a meaningful way.

Other groups are midlife and older women , wanting to explore how to create the life and relationships that they desire.
My work is devoted to helping college students and adults achieve the fulfilling lives they aspire to. My clients struggle with different issues, including: -worries and anxiety; -being overwhelmed by stress and not knowing how to find peace; -depression and low self-esteem; -work problems; -grief; -problems with relationships and intimacy; -seeking meaning in their lives; and -a desire for spirituality and creativity. Since it's usually so hard to change our habitual ways of doing things and it takes courage, my work encourages humor and teaches self-compassion. What I offer to others is the opportunity to learn to love themselves.

I work individually with adult women of all ages. My goal is to support the whole person by encouraging use of her strengths to discover new possibilities in life, and to identify and question thoughts and behaviors that aren't helping her move in a positive direction. Acknowledging the past yet focusing on the present, we collaborate to build resilience and flexibility for facing life's challenges: maintaining healthy relationships, dealing with life changes, illness and loss, work stresses, as well as conditions like anxiety and depression.

I believe my role as a therapist is to provide a safe, supportive space where you can talk over your difficulties, and I in turn provide perspective, insight, and creative problem-solving strategies. With over 25 years of experience, I have many therapeutic approaches available. Past clients have told me that they appreciate my ability to listen reflectively but still provide active feedback and ideas that allow them to see a new angle on their problems and begin to change. I can be most helpful with relationship issues and with anxiety and depression. I have particular specialties in helping women with mid-life transition issues.

I am a specialized clinician in providing peri-natal care for pregnant women and new parents.
Pregnancy and the first few months, even the first year, post-delivery can be really hard. These months can be filled with such joy and anticipation, but can also be accompanied by stress and uncertainty. During pregnancy, women often struggle with anxiety about their baby, their changing bodies, and their upcoming delivery. Post-delivery, women and their partners may continue to have worries about their health, their new roles as parents, and how to care for their baby in addition to managing other life stressors. One can need additional support as they try to navigate and adjust to the journey of pregnancy or new parenthood.

Life events occur that can overwhelm our coping skills or maybe we have been dealing with challenges for a long time. Either way, there are times we could all use support and perspective. I often work with people experiencing anxiety, depression, interpersonal relationship issues, trauma, and eating disorders. I believe that social/cultural identities, roles, and life circumstances impact how we feel about ourselves and others. I'd like to get to know your unique story. Whether this is your first time looking for a therapist or it's time to re-connect with treatment, you have taken the first step.

Sometimes we struggle and need help finding our way back to the life we want to live. We may experience feelings of anxiety, depression, hopelessness, and guilt. As a therapist, I aim to create a safe space for my clients to explore their feelings and experiences, and ultimately move towards the things they value. My practice is rooted in compassion, acceptance, and non-judgement. As a LGBTQI affirming therapist, I also recognize the role that oppression plays in creating and maintaining psychological pain. As such, the queer community is a priority in my work.

I believe that we have all of the tools in us already to make the change we desire. Therapy can serve to identify and access those qualities, offering a place to create a safe relationship with another-- to explore and strengthen ones' sense of self, and to work through challenges because life can be tough. Do you have trouble liking yourself? Do you struggle with low confidence, anxiety or other intense emotions, such as shame or guilt? Do you find yourself really angry and not know why? Within my relational approach to treatment, I strive to find a balance, reduce suffering, and work toward the change the individual desires.

Families come to me because their child or adolescent is struggling, and often times they don’t know where to begin to make things better. I work with children, teens, their parents, and young adults (up to age 25). I initially focus on learning about a person's challenges and strengths. Then, together we develop a plan for gaining mastery over difficulties, achieving goals, and ultimately reaching a child, teen, or early adult's potential. Often challenges feel overwhelming when first seeking help, but most families find initial sessions to clarify goals while also setting the stage for long-sought change.

Despite best efforts, the clients I work with find themselves frustrated, overwhelmed, or disheartened when trying to achieve goals, grieving a loss or navigating life’s unique challenges. They want to heal; disrupt patterns within themselves; or in relationships. Typically, they are open to the idea of “awakening” & want to feel more grounded within themselves & explore how they interact with the world. Through the lens of authentic compassion, they’re awakening or questioning our cultural conditioning that reinforces the idea that we are not enough. I create a genuine space for you to come as you are.

I believe everyone has an innate capacity to heal and change. Access to this healing is sometimes blocked when there is a need to adapt and survive traumatic, difficult or overwhelming experiences. Perhaps it is something that happened in childhood, or over a period of time, or is a single incident that occurred more recently. When access to healing is blocked, our nervous system can become overwhelmed. When this happens we may experience symptoms such as anxiety, panic, or hyper-alertness, depression, anger, low self-esteem, substance abuse, conflictual relational patterns, or low motivation.

September 2022: I am not accepting new patients until after the start of 2023. You are welcome to contact me and I will respond about availability when I am able. I have dedicated my 20 year long career to the premise that we must know what is possible and have capacity to do it before we can be free to choose. During my academic studies in Psychology, Philosophy, Religion, and Social Work I was introduced to the intersections of Queer and Gender theories and became ignited with the framework of knowledge, power, control, and paths to liberation, all of which continue to inform my practice.

Female Therapists

Does it matter what gender my therapist is?

In general, this is not an important factor, as there is no relationship between a therapist’s gender and their efficacy. Some clients, however, prefer to see therapists of a particular gender, whether due to their own past experiences with men and women, or ingrained beliefs about how people of different genders think and behave. Exploring the roots of such preferences and considering what one wants to address in therapy can help someone determine whether their therapist’s gender truly matters to them.

Should I see a female therapist?

Many people—not just women—prefer to see a female therapist, either because they believe that a woman will be able to relate to their specific challenges (for example, sexism in the workplace) or because they imagine feeling more comfortable disclosing sensitive information to a woman. Such beliefs may not turn out to be accurate, however, and adhering too rigidly to a gender preference can at times hinder a client from finding the best therapeutic match.

Do therapists get specific training to help with women’s concerns?

Therapists are trained to provide care to clients of any gender. However, some therapists—both men and women—may pursue additional training in feminist therapy, gender-specific issues, or women’s mental health. Female clients may wish to ask prospective therapists whether they have received specific training in the client’s primary area(s) of concern, or whether they have worked extensively with women on issues similar to their own.

How can I inquire about a therapist’s experience in treating women?

It’s OK—even encouraged!—to ask a therapist directly whether and how often they have treated women in the past, or whether they have treated women dealing with the client’s most prominent concern(s). Competent therapists will be happy to share their educational background, preferred treatment modalities, and prior client experience to help an individual find the therapist best suited to their needs.
