From birth through death, each stage of life is dynamic and valuable. Through these stages, we sometimes encounter challenges beyond our own capacity and we need to reach out for help. I believe in healing. I believe we all have the capacity to recover and learn deeply about ourselves through our most challenging experiences. I enjoy working with people of all ages and in all life stages.

Many challenges we experience in daily life relate to conflict between parts of ourself. Each part reflects our body’s own loving attempts to care for us in the best ways it knows. When we shift one part of this feedback loop, the whole system rearranges. This is what makes transformation possible. My approach to therapy is client-centered and eclectic. I start with creating a non-judgmental, inclusive space for you to come as you are. From here, therapy can include talk therapy, body awareness, mindfulness practices, behavior coaching, evidence-based therapies, trauma modalities, and systems approaches as we reach for your goals.

If you’re reading this page, my guess is that you’ve finally had enough, and finally feel ready to reach out for help. How you feel about yourself doesn’t align with how you’d like to feel, and your relationships aren’t turning out the way you hoped they would. You worry so much that you worry about worrying, and you get lost in made-up scenarios of "what if..." Maybe you aren’t sure how to ask for what you want, and declare what you need. Maybe you grew up in a home where your family didn't take good care of you, or someone you trusted betrayed you. Past pains still hurt, and you aren’t sure how to heal. You're in the right place!

No matter how rewarding, being a parent can be extremely difficult. And amidst a global pandemic, support may be limited and anxieties high. Even in "normal" times, we can struggle to balance our needs with those of our children, to figure out how to discipline in a loving and effective way, and to help our kids develop and thrive. Through exploring one’s own childhood and relationships, a parent can better understand challenges surfacing around parenting, and achieve greater clarity and ownership in parenting decisions. My therapeutic approach helps parents work through challenges mindfully, with love and with confidence.

COVID-19 is changing how we look at and experience life, work and relationships, thus creating new thoughts and feelings about our lives. Whether you are encountering anxiety, depression, addiction, relationship issues and/or other possibly debilitating physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual obstacles they can be worked with during this time of uncertainty. Additionally, with over 15 years of experience in various healthcare settings I work with burnout, compassion fatigue, moral distress and other stressors.

Inherent in the human condition is the potential for suffering. At times, we may find that our pain, worries, and traumas have overcome our capacity to cope. When our capacities for coping become overwhelmed, we struggle to connect to others, to fulfill our daily obligations, and we may carry haunting feelings of shame and negative thoughts about ourselves, the world, and the future. Also inherent in the human condition is the tremendous capacity for resilience, growth, and healing. I believe that each of us holds within us a unique key to healing. Therapy is the process of compassionately clearing the cobwebs to find that key.

If your life had a resumé, “chameleon” would be at the top. You’re so good at figuring out others’ needs, they’d never suspect that you have them too. If you were honest with yourself, though, you’d admit how stressful it is to live for other people. You’re terrified you’ll lose relationships if you speak up or say no. Your energy is drained or you feel resentful. You’re exhausted from wondering if others like you or approve of you. If you make choices that disappoint others, you feel guilty and selfish. Your whole identity is about pleasing others, & you want to feel comfortable being your authentic self, but you have no idea how.

I help people come home to themselves. Life's challenges can leave us questioning our intuition and values and impact our self-worth, relationships, and well-being. Perhaps this is due to a difficult upbringing, perhaps due to trauma and loss, or it may be due to external stressors such as marginalization and oppression. I help clients to find their voice, re-discover self-trust, uncover inner wisdom, and cultivate strength and balance. Together we will explore your experiences, nurture inner resources, and identify and resolve destructive patterns that impact your relationships.

I work with patients from a variety of backgrounds who have diverse concerns that bring them to therapy. In general, patients come to me because they want something to go better in their lives. The solution for some may be to optimize the way they think: about themselves, their circumstances, and about the people in their lives. For other's, there may be something that needs to be better understood about their inner lives: their emotional world, their fantasy life, their wishes, dreams, etc. Most enter therapy because some combination of their circumstances, symptoms, and awareness has pushed them to a point where they want more.

The wounds and scars of our childhood often cause us to repeat dysfunctional patterns in our attempt to heal. We don't repeat painful relationships out of masochism or familiarity; we repeat because we want a different outcome, one we believe will shift how we feel about ourselves and our past. As a psychoanalyst, I explore (not dwell on) early care-giving relationships, traumas, and other life events that shaped who you have become. As your emotional story is realized we use our therapy relationship, your current life, and ongoing awareness of your inner world to work through the stuck places and create a different future.
