Building a trusting, collaborative relationship is at the forefront of my work, though I’m aware this looks differently with each of my clients. I see the process of change as occurring in the context of relationships and through exploration of patterns that may be preventing one from living a fulfilling life. Through the discovery of these patterns, we can begin to understand how to live life more genuinely. I am a relational and psychodynamic therapist who incorporates various therapeutic approaches and interventions, including cognitive-behavioral and mindfulness techniques.

Together, we will find relief for your pain whether it is through talk therapy, somatic exercises, or meditation and mindfulness.
We are all on our own healing journey and I want to congratulate you for taking this step toward peace and wellness! This is hard and we all need a support system to help us along the way. I want to be there for you to assist you when the feelings get too much, when that sneaky trauma response appears just when you thought you met the person of your dreams, but you are now sabotaging the heck out of this new relationship and have no idea why or when life just seems to keep serving you that left hook you were not anticipating at all.

A Certified Telemental Health provider, informed by evidenced based practices such a Cognitive Behavioral therapy (CBT) and Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) as well as using psychoeducation and goal setting, I will work alongside you to promote long-term symptom reduction and balance in your social (work, school, family) and emotional functioning.
I am both inspired by and respectful of the time, courage and commitment it takes for you to engage in a therapeutic relationship, especially via telehealth. Utilizing a strength’s-based approach, I believe helping you to set realistic and achievable goals is pivotal to a successful outcome of self-sufficiency and self-care. Working from a place of compassion, flexibility and sensitivity, I also recognize and incorporate in treatment the importance of different life factors (e.g., family, cultural and environment) that heavily influence us socially and emotionally and our abilities to cope with challenges.

The best approach is as individual as each of my clients; I draw from a cognitive-behavioral background, while also incorporating mindfulness, dialectical exercises, self-care, and building on/utilizing strengths.
People seeking improvement or understanding in their lives can almost always benefit from talking things through. Whether you want to explore childhood issues, heal from trauma, deal with work stress, address anxiety and depression symptoms, or something else, I can help you accomplish your goals. Do you feel un-help-able? Having spent ten years in community mental health, I have worked with people from all walks of life, with all different needs, and feel comfortable talking with most people about most things.

Each and every one of us has a unique story that shapes who we are as individuals. This story can be a mixture of positive and negative experiences, joyful and painful, the good and the bad. How we experience this story, how we share it with others, and how it impacts us are all pieces to an intricate puzzle of who we are and how we live our lives. My primary goal as a therapist is to create a non-judgmental environment filled with acceptance and compassion in the hopes that, by doing so, clients will feel comfortable sharing their stories, learn to embrace their authentic selves, and grow into the person they wish to be.

I collaborate with clients, providing the space and opportunity to explore the nature of their relationship with self and their relationship with others. I seek balance in my work. I respect that my work with clients often needs to shift fluidly between different approaches: practical concerns such as skills-building and decision-making, internal explorations of experience, and existential concerns regarding discovering or creating meaning and purpose.

My ideal client is ready to do the hard work of making real change in their life. Sometimes, people think change has to be big to start therapeutic services; it doesn’t. Sometimes, learning to breathe, decrease anxiety, and be more mindful of your strengths can become a great asset. Therapy doesn’t have to be forever; sometimes, you just need help getting through the now. I help individuals & families dealing with chronic illnesses and end of life. At times like those, crises often happen: medical conflict, spiritual conflict, familial conflict, financial concerns, housing and food insecurity.
