My therapeutic approach is informed by contemporary psychoanalytic theories, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and mind-body-Spirit approaches. I pay special attention to what is happening in the present moment of the sessions, while honoring the impact of life circumstance and familial history.

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.

I have been a practicing psychotherapist for over 16 years. My approach to therapy is to create a respectful, supportive, and non-judgmental environment in which to explore problems and patterns and work toward health and healing. Anxiety, depression, school and relationship issues, and family adjustment to loss, separation or divorce are some of the more common reasons individuals and families seek my consultation. Our work may be focused on understanding problems, developing skills to more effectively manage symptoms or behaviors, or improving relationships. I also provide support to parents with managing children's behaviors.

I believe therapy should be a collaborative effort between client and therapist. While I may share some evidenced-based ideas during our sessions, only you are the expert on what works for you. My sessions will generally follow a cognitive behavioral approach, meaning that we will examine, and possibly shift, your thoughts and perspectives on life situations that are causing you enough distress to want to pursue change. Together we will form a plan of action that is the right fit for you at this point in time.

I whole-heartedly welcome all parts of you into our work together. I move beyond working with just your thoughts and embrace you as a whole-person, which includes your emotions, body sensations, relationships, and even spirit. As a result, I offer an integrated approach that includes body-centered, creative, cognitive, and contemplative techniques. By slowing down and deepening insight you can identify limiting patterns, develop greater acceptance, access inner knowing, and make self-directed change.

Many individuals seeking therapy have had experiences feeling misunderstood, isolated, ignored, or even confused. Navigating mental health is not always easy or comfortable. Regardless of one's presenting issues, my goal as a counselor is to help clients gain a better understanding of their experiences, identity, and conflicts. I have extensive experience working with clients facing racial identity issues, anxiety, depression, trauma/PTSD, perinatal or new parenting issues, and issues related to athletics. Even if you don't fall within these categories, I'd be happy to get to know you and help you through your journey!

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.

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.
