Are you are wondering if counseling is really for you? We may understand - because some of us dealt with depression and at some point didn't believe in therapy. We now believe anyone can get through his or her trauma with the right support. We are a team of amazing Therapists. We like to say – we make dreams come true! That’s because we know when you’re able to get past this hurdle, you will be able to focus on all the things you’ve always dreamt about.

My practice consists largely of adolescents and young adults. My greatest assets are - an ability to connect with people in an accepting, non-judgmental and empathic way. Many young people today seek guidance and a better understanding of who they are and what they are feeling, their instinctive reactions and how to better understand themselves and gain from this crucial insight. Helping them through this life-changing learning process is my forte.

My approach to therapy is geared towards both developing insight as well as finding ways to promote healing and growth. In session, we often work to develop a deeper understanding of ourselves and the patterns that permeate our lives. Depending on your goals, we may also incorporate mindfulness or other somatic practices to help promote nervous system regulation. Therefore, sessions can flexibly move between exploratory, experiential, or solution-focused.

Life as a neurodivergent and/or disabled person can be beautiful, wonderful, and filled with so much joy! It can also be exhausting, challenging, and involve a lot of misunderstanding from those around you. Many of us experience traumas, anxiety, depression, Autistic burnout, emotion regulation difficulties, relational difficulties, and struggles with work, school, and parenting demands. If you're looking for support in managing any of these areas, and you want to work with someone who knows how to set you up for sustainable change, you're in the right place.

Despite our best efforts, life can become overwhelming at any point. The everyday stress we experience can make it difficult for us to live the life we want. As your therapist, my goal is to encourage self-reflection and identity exploration as you process previous and current experiences. My approach to therapy is inclusive, non-judgmental, and culturally affirming. We will work together to better manage negative emotions, and to build new tools for a more empowered life.

I have a menu of treatment options that can be tailored to clients of all ages. I also work with parent-child dyads and couples who are struggling with co-parenting. My work with individual adults utilizes both body focused interventions (from my background in Gestalt therapy) and insight oriented and behavioral techniques (from my background in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy).

Making the decision to start therapy is one the best gifts you can give yourself. That might sound a bit cliché, but giving yourself permission to focus on your own needs and discover more about yourself can be an incredible process. This is especially true if perhaps you’ve gotten used to putting the needs of others first, by being a caregiver to a parent or family member who may be struggling with a physical or mental illness or substance misuse. Learning to put the focus back on yourself and figuring out what gives you happiness and fulfillment is one the many ways that a good therapeutic relationship can enrich your life.

I'll walk beside you along this new path if you're ready to take the first step. I work mainly with women who can be described as responsible and stoic. Women who take care of others but have a hard time seeking care for themselves. Women who can be their own worst critic, who feel unseen and often sacrifice their comfort to keep things running smoothly. When things have been this way forever it can be hard to imagine a life with enough space to make yourself a priority. If this sounds like you, we can team up to bring ease and well-being into your life. Start a new journey: reach out.

It is not easy to find someone with whom to share your inner world. As a therapist, I seek to provide a secure holding space that can assist in containing those feelings, because I believe that having a judgement-free space to develop awareness is important to one’s mental health. In this process, I will help you explore all the different parts of yourself, even the ones that feel the most shameful or unwanted. This process allows you to gain a more dynamic sense of yourself by getting to know the parts that have been kept at a distance. I believe this work can help make the intolerable a bit more tolerable.
