I help women find their true self when they strip away their roles of mother and partner.
Are pregnancy and motherhood supposed to feel this way? Why didn't anyone tell you how lost and alone you would feel? Since becoming a mom, you may feel like your partner and yourself are on autopilot and don't connect anymore. By acknowledging that you need some extra support, you can take the first steps to feeling more hopeful about this new adventure. You can work towards trusting yourself and others. You can be present in the moment for child, yourself and your loved ones and not lost in your self-critical thoughts.

Currently only accepting adult (18+) clients. Multiple factors determine our holistic wellness and one facet can often throw off the others. Our mental, emotional, spiritual, and physical aspects need to be addressed as parts of our whole self and should be included in therapy. I work with women and men ages 15+ to understand and reduce symptoms from various mental health concerns in an effort to work towards holistic healing of mind and body. I have special experience working long-term with persons dealing with the systemic effects of complex trauma.

I help women overcome anxiety, trauma, and body image issues. Many of my clients are highly sensitive, resilient folks who struggle with binge eating, food restriction, over-exercise, and low self-esteem. Many are tired and wired: exhausted by anxiety but can't turn off their thoughts and perfectionism. Our work together will help you challenge old, negative beliefs, tune into your intuition, and align with your values. I use a combo of problem-solving and slow, trauma-sensitive strategies to help you feel less worry and more freedom in your relationships, choices, body and food.

I am particularly effective with women who hear the "call" that there can be something more.
Transpersonal Psychology is short term and positive. I specialize in using MARI (Mandala Assessment Research Instrument). MARI is a Jungian tool based on symbols and colors, which when chosen, reveal a visual picture of the psyche. Given the effectiveness of MARI, one session therapy is a very real possibility. MARI is non-verbal and non-threatening and is the only intrument that speaks to the deepest psychological and spiritual states. My particular area of interest is women who are in the middle of making changes in their lives.

To navigate between locations within the same country, enter a new city or zip code into the search bar.

Learn more about how to find a therapist.

Is online therapy a good option?

Therapy conducted online or over the phone can be just as effective as in-person therapy, as long as there is a strong alliance between the client and the therapist. To find a therapist who provides telehealth services to clients in your area, click “Online Therapy” on the directory homepage and search by your city or town or your zip code.

What’s the difference between a psychologist, a therapist, and a counselor?

Therapists, psychologists, and counselors are all licensed mental health professionals. In the United States, psychologists have earned a doctoral degree. The terms “therapist” and “counselor” are used somewhat interchangeably, but generally therapists offer longer-term, mental health care, while counselors offer shorter-term care that may focus on one domain, such as marriage, career, or academic challenges.

What type of therapist is right for me?

Clients should consider factors such as insurance coverage and their primary reason(s) for seeking therapy to determine the type of professional best suited to their needs. Someone struggling with mental health challenges such as depression or anxiety, for example, may wish to seek out a clinical psychologist, psychologist or therapist, while someone navigating career obstacles or marital upheaval may benefit from seeing a counselor who can offer short-term, targeted support.

Is everyone in the Psychology Today Therapy Directory a licensed therapist?

The Psychology Today directory lists providers who offer legitimate mental health services to the public, including psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and counselors. Many have been licensed by the country or state where they practice; providers whose license or primary credential has been verified by Psychology Today are signified by a “Verified” symbol. Some clinicians or organizations provide services for which their state or country does not offer licenses, such as pastoral counseling. They may be selectively included without the “Verified” seal.

What type of therapy is right for me?

The type of therapy best suited to a particular individual depends on several factors, including their primary reason for seeking therapy, their preferred timeline (some therapy types last for a set number of sessions, while others are open-ended), and their personality and preferences—some may prefer a more structured approach. For many individuals, multiple types of therapy could provide a good fit.

Is online therapy cheaper than in-person therapy?

Many therapists charge the same amount for online therapy as they do for in-person therapy—though clients may still find this cost-effective if it cuts down on their transportation costs. Health insurance plans often offer equivalent coverage for online and in-person therapy; indeed, in many places, they are legally required to do so. Text-based or on-demand therapy apps may be cheaper than traditional one-on-one psychotherapy; however, the practice may be less effective and is not likely to be covered by insurance.
