People often engage with therapy when life feels out of balance: there’s a sadness or disconnectedness they can’t shake, or a mind so active it seems impossible to slow down; there are problems with romantic or sexual desire; there are questions about who one is, what one wants, or even how to want in the first place. My approach to therapy is primarily psychoanalytic. I listen closely to language, helping people hear and understand themselves in radically new ways. I also work to help people discover more intentional and effective modes of relating — to thought, emotion, physiology, and other people.

My approach is one of collaboration, curiosity, humor and warmth, using an anti-oppression framework. As a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner, I bring empathy, skill and understanding with how to carefully engage and shift the effects of stress, grief, anxiety, depression and past traumas. Navigating relationships, identity questions and adjusting to life transitions is a significant part of this work. I welcome working with clients from all cultural, class, ethnic, racial and religious backgrounds; abilities; gender identities; and sexual orientations.

My whole career I have worked with teens and young adults. I love working with young folks because they are at a time in their lives where they are constantly growing and changing in so many ways. Sometimes growth can be a real challenge and it can create pain and conflict, but it is my goal to help teens, young adults, and their families to move through these moments and to become the people that they want to be. I work alongside young folks and their families to identify what the major hurdles they face are and then help to figure out how can we all work together to overcome them.

My practice is currently full. Welcome! I offer an open-hearted, compassionate approach, rooted in relational, mindfulness, and spiritual techniques. You have an innate strength, capable of leading you to peace and clarity, and I am here to partner with you and guide you to that inner wisdom. I take a non-pathological approach and view "symptoms" and "diagnoses" as protective coping mechanisms with positive intent, despite their negative impact. When we get curious about these protective parts, we can form a relationship with them and discover the underlying vulnerability needing attention and healing.

My approach to therapy begins with developing a strong rapport with the client. I work to develop a trusting therapeutic relationship through compassion, empathy, and support. You can expect a laid-back, nonjudgmental environment – perhaps even a bit of humor. Seeking therapy is a sign of strength that should be appreciated as such.

My overall therapy goals are to help my clients identify and address the barriers and stressors that interfere with their ability to lead productive and fulfilling lives. I utilize this overarching principle to address the various presenting needs from helping an individual cope with a primary medical illness to addressing stressors associated with life transitions, interpersonal conflicts, or primary anxiety or depression. I have also pursued extensive training and interest in perinatal mood and anxiety disorders and supporting individuals and families through infertility and the transition into parenthood.

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.
