The journey to parenthood can take many different paths. Are you finding that your path feels nothing like the pregnancy test and diaper commercials that promise rainbows, unicorns, and happy endings? Whether you have had a baby or are trying to have a baby, the journey can feel like you are on a never ending roller coaster, full of ups and downs, and unsure of what direction to go in next. The journey can evoke feelings of sadness, worry, fear, anger, loss and isolation. It can be overwhelming and confusing. It can leave you feeling like you don't recognize yourself anymore. You are not alone. I see you, I hear you, and I can help.

Often individuals who have experienced on-going internal or relational conflict feel stuck in a cycle that they can't seem to control no matter how many attempts or strategies they try. In the confusion and exhaustion, they give up and give in to hopelessness, low self-worth, shame, anger, and fear. This leads into more alienation, suffering, and despair. Those who want to heal the relationship with themselves and with those they love can rediscover the self that is trapped under all of the pain, anger, and fear. With empathic support, knowledge, and adequate resources, healing is possible.

We all face times in our lives that present seemingly insurmountable difficulties. It is part of our human experience. I also know that when we receive compassionate and skilled support, these times can lead to incredible growth and transformation. I consider it a privilege to be a supportive presence to my clients during the times when they have to find strength they didn't know they had. We all have the internal resilience to overcome every challenge life puts in our paths. I have a particular interest in helping clients move through traumatic grief and loss related to relationship loss, miscarriage, and infertility.

Worried moms & frazzled dads, look no further! Maybe your child/teen is anxious, sad, angry, or acting out. You've tried empathy, rewards, punishments, extra attention, special privileges. You've read books, consulted parenting blogs, & asked other parents for advice. Whatever you try, it may even work for a few days but then all the old problems come right back. Maybe your boy wants to dress like a girl and it's freaking you out. Maybe your teen declares "I'm queer"--what does that even mean? Let's add the stress of the global pandemic, and you're exhausted, frustrated, and worried about your child's future.

My therapeutic style is laid back, prioritizing the counseling relationship over techniques as a primary catalyst for change as research consistently shows this to be one of the most significant factors for positive client outcomes. After establishing goals to pursue sessions focus on generating insights and reframing counterproductive perspectives on given subjects. I believe that the answers to your challenges are within you- my job is to walk with you as you find them.

Integrative Therapists

What is integrative therapy?

Integrative therapy is a type of therapy that combines ideas and techniques from different therapeutic approaches depending on the needs of the individual client. By merging elements of different treatments, an integrative therapist aims to offer a more flexible approach than those who practice just one type of therapy.

How does integrative therapy work?

Integrative therapy approaches a client’s mental, physical, and emotional health in a holistic way to discover the sources of their unhealthy behavior patterns or other challenges and considers the approach most likely to lead to improvement. Among the techniques an integrative therapist may practice are cognitive-behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, EMDR, mindfulness, art or music therapy, psychodynamic therapy, breathwork, family systems therapy, gestalt therapy, and trauma-informed therapy. An integrative therapist regularly evaluates the client’s progress and is prepared to pivot to a different approach if progress stalls.

How long does integrative therapy last?

As with most forms of talk therapy, there is no set duration or end point for integrative therapy; people who find they are making progress typically continue until they feel they’ve addressed the issues that spurred them to seek treatment. New patients should understand that it may take some time for a therapist to land on a treatment approach that best meets their needs, but once they do, they should expect sessions to extend for a number of months, typically including at least 12 sessions.

How effective is integrative therapy?

There are hundreds of types of talk therapy, and research shows that while they vary in form, goals, and frequency, many if not all can produce similarly successful outcomes. But a single approach does not always deliver the greatest, or speediest, benefit, and so even therapists primarily trained in one model will use tools, language, techniques, or exercises from others to shape an effective treatment plan.
