There are predictable and sometimes mysterious consequences from trauma, loss, disability, chronic pain , and unwanted "new realities" of all sorts, planned or not.
Our thoughts, beliefs, behaviors, relationships and experiences shape us emotionally, physically and energetically. By gently and compassionately exploring these, both healthy and undermining, new choices become possible. I offer principles from Behavioral Cognitive Therapy including guided meditation, diaphragmatic breathing, cognitive restructuring, progressive relaxation, and mindfulness. When reinforced with practice, these techniques help to increase wellness and reduce suffering and anxiety. You don't need to know the problem or the solution to begin. You only need to want something to change.

My modalities also help with chronic pain .
If you want to change thought patterns or behaviors, you may need to work with your body because it too has developed habits that support your cognitive and emotional habits. What distinguishes me as a psychotherapist is the amount of attention I give to the bodily components of mental/emotional habits and the resources I can bring to improve the body-mind connection. In my practice I use EMDR, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, AEDP (Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy), IFS (Internal Family Systems), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Neurofeedback (direct brain-training), and EFT (tapping to get traumatic memories unstuck).

It takes immense courage to embrace therapy; you should be proud of taking this step. There are as many reasons to seek help as there are challenges in life. Perhaps you are noticing recurring tension, pain , or unpleasant sensations in your body? Or are you functioning well at work, but noticing that it’s difficult to connect to a deeper sense of belonging and meaning? Do traumatic memories keep lingering at the surface despite your efforts to put them behind you? Have you already sought help, spent many sessions venting about your worries and traumas, but wound up more frustrated and triggered than you were before?

My group practice specializes in the treatment of trauma spectrum disorders, including post-traumatic stress disorder, dissociative disorders, trauma-related pain , and trauma-related somatic symptoms. Ongoing experiences of verbal, physical, or sexual abuse, neglect, and bullying can lead to these symptoms. Sometimes people suffer these effects because they have experienced chronic invalidation. We treat couples, people in non-traditional partnerships, adolescents who struggle with emotional and behavioral problems. We also treat survivors of sexual violence and targets of workplace bullying.

What does sex mean to you? Is it about exploring your body and your imagination, feeling pleasure, or connecting with your partner? Many people I work with feel stuck in their sex lives. Some have found that their sex drives are different or that they don’t want the same things as their partner. They may struggle with orgasms, erections, or pain . Others have had past negative experiences that make pleasure and intimacy difficult. As a certified sex counselor and nurse practitioner, I recognize that sexual expression is a reflection of both physical and mental health and I can provide holistic support for both.

Once a client feels safe, I aim to break down feelings of isolation that may be breeding grounds for emotional pain .
Any individual, couple, or family making the decision to embark on therapy has made a brave step toward growth and change. Once rapport and safety is established, giving the self permission to be raw and vulnerable is what I strive for with clients. Feeling safe to explore discomfort and navigating different means of communication is at the heart of my work. The approach of curious exploration and demystification helps the individuals, couples and families that I work with resolve stressors related to anxiety, depression, grief, relational issues, work and academic influences, family dynamics, and LGBTQ issues.

Treatment is tailored to the needs and preferences of the client. Some situations call for deep introspection, others for charting one's way through a predicament, and still others for behavioral or other targeted techniques. I have tools for all of these.

Whether you're really hurting or simply seeking personal growth, I'm happy to help. How I practice is mainly cognitive-behavioral, but I also draw from nonviolent communication, feminist therapy, and anti-racist multicultural counseling. I work with people who have a fairly broad range of concerns (see list to the right). I work with adults and older teens; individuals, couples, and groups. I especially enjoy helping clients with a stigmatized identity overcome both internalized and external oppression. I welcome transgender and other queer folk; Muslims, immigrants, and racial and ethnic "minority" members; and activists for social and environmental justice.

My primary therapeutic focus is to help teenagers and adults to develop a stronger sense of self and to develop the coping skills they will need to address issues of anxiety, self esteem and self worth. I use a non-judgmental, trauma informed and holistic approach to help clients develop their ability to self soothe, including using body/movement and grounding techniques. I focus on both personal autonomy and understanding ourselves in relationships, with the goal of moving out of stuck feelings and thoughts to embody a more curious stance of your experiences and the world around you.

Do you find yourself feeling stuck in certain feelings? We call emotions "feelings" because they are experienced physically first, and then words are put to what is felt. If talking yourself out of uncomfortable feelings isn't working, you may want to try body-based therapy. All of your emotions are needed to fully express yourself, just as a dancer needs a full range of motion, and an artist needs every color. I help clients to cope with uncomfortable and painful feelings in order to open up to feeling safe experiencing the full range of human emotions.

Chronic pain in the form of headaches, joint problems, or full-blown fibromyalgia can radically impact one's life.

It can be influenced by many factors, including emotion and memory.
