Short wait list for new clients. Are you or your child struggling with a difficult transition in life, anxiety, depression, body image distress, or low self-esteem? I see individuals of all ages, although my experience counseling children and adolescents suffering from eating disorders led me to discover a strong interest in working with children (10 years and older), teens, families, and emerging adults. I understand that a therapeutic alliance between counselor and client is essential, and focus initial sessions on building that bond.

I'm so glad you're here. You are so courageous to have begun this journey. You've just taken the first step to feeling better- to creating a happier, more peaceful future. I believe we are not meant to manage the struggles of life alone. Often what we need is a listening ear and an outside perspective to provide gentle feedback and guidance. That's where I come in. You will be met with empathy and kindness in a non-judgmental space. I identify as liberal and strive to provide inclusive, culturally competent care. Regardless of why you're struggling, I'd be honored to provide support. I hope to hear from you soon.

My approach to therapy is to build a safe environment for clients where we work to develop coping strategies, interpersonal skills, and insight to move toward emotional and behavioral health. I treat a variety of common issues (e.g., depression, anxiety, school problems, ADHD, and adjustment difficulties) as well as more complex ones, such as those resulting from trauma. I find that therapy is most effective when clients have the support of significant individuals (e.g., parents) and I welcome their inclusion in the treatment process.

I want to support you in healing in the deepest possible way. This has led me to explore the very roots of suffering, from the perspective of the ancient sages and from the perspective of modern trauma therapy. I support my people in experiencing the reality that exists beyond the bounds of the conditioned mind. I wield the wisdom of the body to facilitate deep transformation. I weave a nuanced understanding of the particular challenges modern minds face into what I offer to support my people in safely opening more and more fully to the freedom, love, and deep internal well-being available to us when we connect to who we truly are.

You’re stressed and filled with anxiety. Your thoughts are negative and you lack self-confidence. Intrusive thoughts keep distracting you from what you need to do each day. You worry too much - maybe you've even become worried about how much you worry. Do you want to learn to lower the volume of the anxiety? Do you hope to gain some perspective about all the worries keeping you awake at night? Have you tried to manage emotions by stuffing them deep inside? Or maybe your emotions are all over the place and you aren't sure what you are feeling.

Do you struggle to get your needs met in your relationships? Perhaps you try repeatedly and fail to achieve harmony? I have a special interest in working with individuals experiencing unhappiness in their important relationships. When my clients first come in, they may feel they are doing the heavy lifting and hope that things will change. Their relationship dissatisfaction gets in the way of the life they want in so many ways. They aren’t the person they strive to be according to their values. They feel like they are failing as a partner and in life. Greater self-confidence and fulfillment are attainable.
