Understanding and making sense of your experiences and patterns can help you live a more balanced life - a life which empowers you and generates a positive path to growth, health, and well-being. The goal of our therapy would be to bring more awareness to your choices and patterns, so that you can be empowered to make more mindful decisions. While we can't change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand and make sense of the past and meet new challenges in your life with more clarity and balance.

I see my job as supporting people in stepping into lives of consciousness, authenticity, meaning, and joy - whatever that looks like for each particular person. My focus is primarily with people who are dealing with grief, addiction / recovery, and/or aging, although many of my clients are outside these particular categories but yet are longing for a deeper life. To get there, healing has to happen first. Trauma needs to be addressed. Beliefs, communication styles, and relationship patterns that are limiting need to be considered and reformulated. Stressors and anxiety needs to be managed. This is the path we travel together.

I believe pleasure and intimacy are key components to realizing your own worth. Whether you are looking to connect more deeply to yourself, a partner, or a community, I am here to reflect your own capacity for joy and fulfillment back to you. Therapy is about connection, and I bring my openness, curiosity, and sense of humor into my sessions. I use a blend of techniques from emotionally-focused therapy, somatic psychotherapy, sex therapy, and yoga to work with both individuals and partners.

My goal is to provide a safe space in which to learn coping skills, heal or to find solutions to a life issue. You may not need "healing" but just someone to help with your partner, children, parents, work, or other areas that can be difficult. I will meet you where you are emotionally and together we will work on the plan to meet your goals. I want you to put your feet on my couch, bring your dog and be comfortable. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, a Certified Clinical Mental Heath Counselor and a Certified Hypnotherapist. If you want to stay in the comfort of your own space, I am also a Certified Distance Counselor.

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.

As Hemmingway said “The world breaks everyone and afterward many are strong at the broken places.” We begin wherever you are… you might be in the process of fracturing or maybe you are trying to make sense of the pieces of your self, or you might be letting the fear of breaking hold you back from life. I am here to walk alongside you on this journey. Along the way we can work to make sense of the broken pieces, figure out how to put them back together and learn to accept that which will be forever changed in you. I see growth and healing as an active process that is not linear or quick, but rather a journey we must embark on.

I do individual psychotherapy and coaching work. I specialize in relationships, trauma and anxiety. My intention is to provide a safe, nonjudgmental relationship in which people can explore their feelings, needs, beliefs and perceptual frames in order to make significant and lasting changes. For some people learning the effective use of assertiveness, self compassion and boundaries can be key components to changing their relationship to self and others.

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.

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.

Expression, in all of its forms, is empowerment. Being able to trust someone and feel safe with them is instrumental in amplifying expression. This is why it is important to find a therapist that is a good fit for you. Clients may carry experiences that they do not have the words for — and that’s okay. As an art therapist, I use the creative process to support clients in connecting with themselves and build self-confidence and compassion. I specialize in working with survivors of trauma and individuals who are facing challenges related to self-worth, depression, anxiety, family conflict, and interpersonal difficulties.

I’m passionate about working with chronically ill adults and adults in their 20s-30s having difficulty navigating the many challenges of adulthood. If that’s you—hello there! You’ll want to know what therapy with me would be like. Put simply, my approach emphasizes noticing. It sounds easy, but many of us are ‘programmed’ not to notice what we're feeling or what beliefs we’re operating from. It actually takes quite a lot of courage & curiosity to notice. Together, we notice whatever is there. Often this means starting with the parts of us programmed not to: What's scary about noticing? How did they come to believe what they believe?
