If you are feeling anxious, stuck, or having trouble adjusting to change you are not alone! Have you wished to feel more peaceful and accomplish things that matter to you? Are you for hoping for change in days ahead? Maybe you are trying to heal from trauma and feel stronger inside or more sure of yourself. You might want to develop or strengthen relationships and not hide from life experiences, but this feels overwhelming right now. If you have always felt a little different, identify as neurodiverse, or experienced emotional abuse or emotional neglect in relationships with parents, bosses, partners, or friends therapy could help.

I am passionate about helping individuals navigate life’s challenges. My goal as a therapist is to walk alongside you, process past experiences, shed light on patterns you are engaging in, and provide you with tools to improve your mental health. I aim to foster growth, introspection, and self-acceptance. I enjoy working with a range of ages and concerns, but I am particularly passionate about working with adults suffering from anxiety, depression, substance use disorders, and self-esteem issues

I work with children and adolescents (5-18) struggling with adjustment disorders, ADHD, Autism, developmental changes, self-esteem, anxiety, depression, and family conflict. I also work with young adults (18+) dealing with transitional life changes, identity exploration, and various mental health concerns. I believe in empowering clients to take control over the things they can and to accept the things they cannot. We will work together to establish healthy coping skills for challenging situations. I collaborate with parents to help identify your child’s strengths and to create a responsive rather than reactive home environment.

As much as you want to live in this moment, you find yourself being pulled into the past or worrying about the future. You notice that you aren't able to focus or concentrate on your life or work. You can’t take a full breath, your heart races, your stomach hurts, your head aches, you feel frozen, or you feel nothing at all. You find yourself getting hooked into so many negative thoughts and worry about all the bad things that might happen in the future. Part of you wonders if you are going crazy. Part of you wonders if it will always be like this.

Life is a journey full of transitions that can bring unexpected change and heavy emotions. Children and adolescents often struggle with navigating and regulating such big feelings. Regardless of age, I believe we all have the ability to channel our inner strengths when given the correct tools and proper support.

With warmth, sincerity and humor, I create a safe space for getting to the root of what’s going on.

Living with anxiety and depression is like walking around with a rain cloud of negative thoughts over your head at all times. When your mind gets caught in this downward spiral, it feels impossible to climb out. It may have even started affecting your normal day to day life – in school, work, or even your relationships. The feelings of agitation, tension, worthlessness and guilt prohibit you from moving forward, accomplishing tasks, and being at your best. Often times, you may even wonder if you’ll ever be your “best” again, or if this path of darkness is your new normal. As a therapist, I am here to help you reclaim your life.

I treat suicidal thinking, self-harming behaviors, and trauma in my practice. I have worked extensively with childhood trauma, as well as complex trauma related to long-term relationships. Often dissociative responses come hand in hand with experiencing trauma, so I also treat dissociation - anything from "feeling floaty," all the way to forgetting big chunks of time. Additionally, when we look at unwanted behaviors, they usually start as a solution to "fix" intense emotional pain, and then they start to feel like the problem itself. What you do to survive the past isn't necessarily what you need to do now to heal and move forward.

In your suffering, you may feel overwhelmed by your distress, not knowing how to cope daily or move forward in life. This is a tough place to be in, but humans are resilient, and you can learn new ways of responding to life's difficulties.

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.
