I work collaboratively with clients to gain a full understanding of current problems, how they may have developed, and ways to make meaningful changes both internally and in one’s relationships. This might include skills based techniques such as mindfulness and cognitive behavioral therapy, facing difficult emotions in a safe environment to gain a greater sense of control and acceptance around them, or understanding how past experiences may influence current emotional reactions.

I also incorporate mindfulness and acceptance based therapies into my practice.
My passions are treating OCD and helping LGBTQ+ folks navigate identity processes. Many of my clients joke that I am "not a talk therapist, but a 'do' therapist," as sessions are often very active and skills focused. I view therapy as a supportive environment where I can help clients face their fears. I provide only evidence-based treatments, as my goal is to help people get results as soon as possible.

My empowering approach to psychotherapy draws from the insights of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT),Somatic Experiencing, mindfulness -based practices, Jungian and depth psychology, and, for those interested, dream analysis.
I offer an interactive, practical, comprehensive, respectful and resourceful style of therapy that helps people shift their focus from wondering, "What's wrong with me?" to asking a very different question: "What's right about me?" My sessions, for both individuals and couples, are designed to identify effective and practical problem-solving strategies, as well as to uncover inner strengths and healing resources to address your concerns. I am open-minded and value cultural and religious diversity.

Over the past 21 year, I have worked with clients with a range of issues from depression to anxiety. My clients describe me as approachable, down-to-earth and practical in my work with them. I enjoy the process of exploring what issues are causing distress and identifying together what needs to be done to resolve those issues, or learn different, more effective ways of responding.

I specialize in psychotherapy grounded in attachment, trauma, social-emotional development, parent-child relationships, mindfulness and somatic experiencing.
You deserve to be fully seen, and are worthy of being held. Reaching out to a therapist and finding the right fit can be a daunting task, but I hope you will take a deep breath and a moment to connect to have your questions answered. Relationship issues are so hard, even when they're going well. If you find yourself in the messiness of painful family history, attachment issues, big and unmanageable feelings, and are struggling to thrive, make meaning, and be graceful with yourself, believe me-I can relate. It's not too much to ask to heal your inner child by confronting the past that continues to show up in the present.

Therapy is a wonderful space to build resilience. Through cultivating awareness of our thoughts, feelings, and sensations, we can break unwanted patterns of avoidance, reactivity, or shutting down. Through replacing judgment with mindfulness and self-criticism with self-compassion, we gain a greater sense of agency. Through understanding ourselves within our biological, social, and historical context, we are reminded of a shared humanity.

This helps me to gain a dynamic understanding of your situation and work collaboratively toward your goals.

As part of this balanced life, I routinely implement mindfulness based stress reduction (MBSR) as a way to relate to your inner world in a more authentic way.
Much of our lives are series of automatic reactions and habits. In between being in these autopilot modes, we can have moments of awareness something isn’t quite right or we envision our life differently. In our work together, I will utilize our relationship to help expand your awareness and move toward acceptance and deciding on an appropriate action. My role is to provide safety, security and honesty for you to use and explore what is most important in your life. One of my personal beliefs is that we all have the capacity to change and that we all are doing the best we can with the tools we have.

Mindfulness-Based (MBCT) Therapists
For clients with chronic pain, hypertension, heart disease, cancer, and other health issues such as anxiety and depression, mindfulness-based cognitive therapy, or MBCT, is a two-part therapy that aims to reduce stress, manage pain, and embrace the freedom to respond to situations by choice. MCBT blends two disciplines--cognitive therapy and mindfulness. Mindfulness helps by reflecting on moments and thoughts without passing judgment. MBCT clients pay close attention to their feelings to reach an objective mindset, thus viewing and combating life's unpleasant occurrences.
