Life can be difficult sometimes. We can get off track, have trouble coping with day to day stress, lose sight of our own goals and dreams, or just feel lost and overwhelmed. In my practice, I enjoy work with individuals, families, and couples struggling with issues ranging from depression, anxiety, trauma, women's issues, anger management, ADHD, relationship problems and communication problems. In therapy, the goal is to become engaged in a safe and trusting therapeutic relationship that can facilitate growth, change and healing.

Trauma work is not what's "wrong" with you it's understanding the story of what's happened how to you and how this is impacting your quality of life.
Beginning therapy and finding a new therapist can feel challenging yet hopeful. It is important to find a therapist with whom you can form a close bond and who begins to understand you. This bond can give way to more deep and meaningful therapeutic work. As an Object Relations psychoanalytical psychotherapist I will use our therapeutic relationship as the primary vehicle for change. Psychoanalytic work helps provide relief from debilitating symptoms as well as addresses the deeper underlying causes of your symptoms. Our work also allows for exploration in understanding unconscious drives that shape your daily life and relationships.

If stress, anxiety, depression, grief/loss, impacts of trauma, anger, or relationship difficulties are significantly impacting your life, we can work together to build upon your strengths, practice effective ways of communicating your needs, and identify evidence-based strategies that will support you in achieving your individual goals.
Every person deserves to feel seen, heard, and understood. I can help you find healthier ways of connecting with others by offering a safe space where we can explore the circumstances that have led you down a path of engaging in negative self-talk, using unhealthy coping strategies, fearing vulnerability, avoiding conflict, or having overwhelming emotions.

My passions include helping others work through disorders of mood; body image issues; grief; trauma and PTSD; and mental blocks that deplete energy and motivation.
When life gets difficult, uncomfortable or confusing, oftentimes we can rely on our wits and resilience alone. Other times, however, we can use a little support from others. With a background in crisis intervention, severe and persistent symptom management, mindfulness, and Kundalini yoga, I will collaborate with you as you develop your goals, life dreams, and self-care plans while clearing out the thoughts and habits you are finding to be unhelpful.

My speciality is ADHD/Autism that is complicated by severe trauma.
I'm not going to lament to you about how hard life is; if you're here you know that. My clientele often have a history of working with many therapists, and not finding the help adequate. Whether it's Autistic Burnout, social exclusion due to neurodiversity, disabling symptoms of ADHD, or hitting a wall regarding improvement in therapy, I have a plan. Neurodiversity does not jive with homework, so I do not give any. You will be challenged, and given a plethora of psychoeducation; because it is so hard to fix something unless you know how it works.

Often, we find that events from our past have a significant impact on our present, so I am trained in several trauma specific modalities including EMDR and Ego State Therapy.
Life is all about relationships. When our relationships are strained, life can become really challenging. Sometimes we have the hardest time communicating and connecting with the people we love the most. If you are struggling with loneliness, allowing people to get close to you, or repeated relationship challenges, you are not alone.
