If you're feeling hurt, hopeless, or lost, finding a place to feel safe is paramount. Science tells us that when we're feeling withdrawn, anxious, or worse we need to sync up with someone who feels confident to be able to experience that for ourselves again. I'm here to help you feel grounded, confident, and empowered to become your best self.

I see people with depression, anxiety, compulsive behaviors as well as traumatic histories and losses. Together, we will work to gain a deep understanding of your early and lifelong relationships, in which your struggles were formed. Additionally, I ask about how social, economic, gendered and racial issues frame your pain. I integrate a basic psycho-dynamic understanding integrated with trauma techniques, body work, hypnosis and cognitive behavioral work in individual and group therapy. Group therapy adds another layer of healing possibility through the camaraderie, clarity and empathy groups provide.

Everyone encounters problems which have the potential to negatively impact our sense of relational, mental, physical, and spiritual well-being. Often, I work with people who have adopted patterns of thinking, feeling and behaving that leave them feeling 'stuck' in repeating faulty problem solutions, With my support as a trained mental health professional, therapy represents an opportunity to slow down, develop an expanded view of 'the problem', understand what happened to block problem resolution to date, renew hope, develop and implement a roadmap to get where you want to go, and, ultimately, achieve the balance essential to realizing one's full potential.

Feeling 'stuck' and often say to yourself, "How am I back here again? I'm so sick and tired of it!" I understand that sense of confusion and defeat. I help people with depression, anxiety and addictions break through those nagging, repetitive cycles of frustration. I use humor in a gentle way to explore past traumas, compassionately eliminating limiting beliefs. People are struggling today to feel better and move their lives forward. I'll work closely with you to break through those impasses to a more satisfying life. You'll soon experience a flow "in" your life more than a struggle "with" it.

If painful experiences were met with confusing or anxious responses from others or described in manners that did not respond to emotional needs, then a child or individual would likely cope with difficulties by disconnecting from the threatening emotional meanings. We need another at times, or search for a healing process. If you have been struggling with strong feelings or a particular situation, it is time to get help. You can find the way through fears, loss or other struggles. I am here to support you through your struggles, through personal hardships, finding truths or make sense of confusion in your mind or life.

Not everyone has the same approach to life's problems such as grief, loss, bereavement, illness and stress, nor to the typical challenges of family relationships. The context of culture, ethnicity, race, gender, class, sexual orientation and spiritual beliefs influence the ways in which we view the world and how the world views us. I work with children, teens, individuals, couples and families to resolve issues in a way that is sensitive to their culture and context; and together we develop solutions that are congruent with their values.

I provide psychotherapy for couples, families, children, and adults from diverse backgrounds. I help to keep the peace at home, by enhancing intimacy, expressing emotions, improving communication skills, decreasing fighting, and bridging differences in personalities and habits, such as ways of managing finances, and finding time to enjoy each other. I help my clients to navigate normal life changes and stresses such as marriage and parenthood, divorce, step- and blended family changes, and recovering from infidelity. I help to address school and academic problems, "stinking thinking", child behavior problems, common (and uncommon) disorders, such as depression, anxiety, and substance abuse.

Don’t you wish life came with a handbook on how to do it right? Me too. Instead, society expects you to know how to manage feelings of despair, fear, guilt, anxiety, isolation, trauma, hopelessness, and doubt while also dealing with family, friends, relationships, careers, health, and social norms. It’s easy for mental health to take a backseat when you're trying to focus on everything else. You want to move towards the life that you want, and you realize that you need some help getting there. Keep going. You got this. You just need a safe, supportive place to be who you are and work some things out that may be holding you back.
