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.

To seek counsel and to make the conscious decision to ask for help is an act of courage. It is never easy to be vulnerable to another, let alone, allow someone into your world. Forman once said, “It is an act of bravery to feel your feelings.” I hold this statement to be true. As your therapist, it is my hope to be able to develop a therapeutic alliance with you to walk the journey of exploring and overcoming whatever challenges and obstacles you may be facing. By implementing several different types of clinical modalities including CBT, DBT, and Psychodynamic therapies, it is my goal to be able to meet you where you’re at

Let me tell you a secret, therapy is not a one size fits all type of thing! I wish it were as it would make life so much easier, but the fact is every person is different and requires sessions catered to their own unique backgrounds, environments, and goals. As a psychotherapist, my aim is to work with you on getting to wherever you want to be in life, so I invite you to reach out if you are interested in taking a bumpy ride through the road of self-discovery.

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.

*email preferred* Therapy can be a transformational process of self-discovery facilitated by deeper levels of awareness and change. I believe we have an inherent ability to heal ourselves, and my primary focus is to honor and trust your experience. Anxiety, depression, trauma, and other life stressors can interfere with living a fulfilling life, causing problems in your life and relationships, and leaving you feeling overwhelmed, anxious, depressed, lost or numb. I believe that therapy should meet the individual where they are within their unique set of circumstances.

Feeling stuck or unfulfilled in different areas of your life? Would you like support that is professional and confidential? Unlike talking to friends and family, therapy offers a safe space where you can put words to things that are difficult to say, and confront things from your past that seem to interfere with your life in the present. Therapy can lead to deeper self-awareness and insight that can empower you to make the changes you need to live your best life. Everyone has the power to grow and heal with the right conditions and tools.

Our practice specializes in trauma, anxiety, and stress related disorders, and we feel that it’s so important for you to feel safe with your therapist while you work through these issues. All Inner Lakes Therapists are LGBTQIA+ and BIPOC allies, and ND affirming, if not members of these groups ourselves. We all have strong values around social justice, cultural competence, and providing therapy that is empowering and de-stigmatizing. We are body-positive, sex-positive, kink-affirming, and non-judgmental. We are all unique and awesome therapists with lived experience that allow us to be truly empathic with our clients.

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.

I come to the practice of counseling after many years working in student services in a university setting. I find (as the research continues to show) that the most important element of effective counseling is the connection between client and counselor—we will work collaboratively. I draw on client-centered, existential, mindfulness, solution-focused, trauma-informed, EMDR, and parts work approaches. I am in network with Aetna, Optum and UHC insurance and I also take direct pay. Email me to inquire about current openings.

**I am sorry but I am not currently accepting new clients. **I am working via teletherapy (computer video or phone) during the pandemic. I am an insight-oriented therapist with a deep respect for Jungian psychology, Internal Family Systems (IFS), meditation and yoga. The underlying principle in my practice is to value people's individual experience and the particular meaning that their experience has for them. In this spirit we can explore together to help lay the groundwork for insight.

As a therapist who goes to therapy, I know, firsthand, the importance of finding the right fit. The right therapist is different for each of us and often has little to do with programs completed or certifications earned. Instead, it’s about presence—about feeling safe to show up exactly as we are while being empowered to do what is right and true for us.

Empowering you to confront your fears, challenges, insecurities and trauma to rewrite your story and create the life you desire is my favorite thing to do as a therapist. I will meet you where you are, free of judgement, with compassion and support. Sometimes, we all need to be reminded of our strengths. Let me help you remember these strengths and use them to focus on your goals while developing an action plan to achieve these goals.

Please note that my practice is for adults only. Today you are one step closer to a new personal space where you feel empowered and enabled to experience your true personal freedom. We often limit our personal freedom and our way to happiness because of our fear of expressing our true self, not the false self which is dictated by others. My goal is to help you uncover your true self and lead a balanced life that is truly meaningful to you. I use Jungian Psychoanalytic therapy primarily. I encourage you to talk about your dreams and express your self through Jungian-based active imagination. 私は日本で生まれた日本人です。日本語をご希望の方は日本語でどうぞ。

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.
