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.

Therapy can be a wonderful space to put yourself first! It’s a space where you can finally process some difficult things you may be going through or have gone through in life. A chance to become vulnerable with yourself to lead a fuller, happier life. I’m a compassionate, trauma-informed, culturally humble therapist here to empower and provide a safe space for you as you begin your therapeutic journey. As you allow yourself to be vulnerable, I want to provide support by helping you see your own resilience, strength, and courage. I’m here to listen as you process those difficult things.

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.

My first experience with therapy, was as the client. After surviving a traumatic event, I sought help from a therapist. Therapy proved so helpful, it was then, that my passion grew. While most of my experience has been in private practice providing individual therapy, I have worked in a county mental health clinic, an inpatient psychiatric setting and a residential group home. At the core of distress, we may find some form of unresolved shame, guilt, trauma, abuse or loss. I am here to provide "a safe place" to process those hurts, while helping you increase self-awareness and gain skills to lead a more fulfilling life.

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.

*I do not have current openings. If you would like to be placed on a waiting list, please contact me via email.* Amid the pressures of today's world, it is rare that we allow ourselves moments of stillness in which to reflect upon our lives, relationships, choices, and larger forces at play. These moments are paramount to bringing our lives into alignment with our priorities and ideals. My aim is to encourage the pause necessary for self-reflection. This pause allows you to see yourself more clearly and to articulate your most fundamental questions. Through the clarifying process of self-reflection, change becomes possible.

I view therapy as a partnership and work well with clients who are driven to gain understandings of themselves and life, both autonomously and collaboratively. Every person has their own strengths, which can be harnessed to develop insight and change into their lifestyles and perspectives. I also acknowledge that everyone has their own past experiences that have led them to today. I strive to establish rapport with my clients and a space to feel safe and validated to foster a deeper level of empowerment, personal growth and self-acceptance.

Successful therapy often boils down to learning how to make reasonable and realistic expectations of yourself and the people around you. We can figure that out together. Plus, humor and laughter can provide relief for life's challenges. We'll look at making changes mindfully, from a "could, not should" perspective.

Welcome! I am so glad that you are looking for positive support in your life! I am an affirmative psychotherapist working with individuals and couples helping them become the best version of themselves. Psychotherapy is talk therapy. The individuals I work with identify with different sexuality and gender identity. Individuals may experience anxiety or other issues around sexuality and intimacy. I also work with couples who want to be more emotionally focused and would like to enhance their relationship intimacy with one another. I look forward to working with you!

Life is hard. There are so many challenges that can get us off track. Most challenges can be diminished if not overcome by closely examining them and seeing them from a different vantage point. We can work together to pinpoint what makes meaning in your life and use what motivates you to overcome or better traverse whatever problem may be that you are experiencing. With good communication and a solid understanding and grasp of who you are and what you want out of life, I don't believe there is any issue in life that we cannot work together to mitigate or overcome. I have flexible hours that include days and nights.

What type of Ithaca mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Ithaca?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
