" When you're looking for a Therapist, it's not an easy time. You’ve struggled to change behavior patterns, communicate better and gotten nowhere, Now you feel powerless as well as in a mess. If someone has mentioned you talking to a professional, you could often catch yourself anxiously focusing on what you imagine other people are thinking about you. You might be surprised at the amount of relief you can feel by talking to a caring, invested but objective professional about what's going on and getting some perspective. You can start exactly where you are. "

"I wholeheartedly believe that the wounding that happens in relationship can be healed in relationship. Therapy with me is relational, humanistic, empathic, body-oriented, mindful and experiential. I will support you as you build and discover what's most meaningful to you and surrender that which no longer serves you. Together we can walk into the scary questions. We can strengthen your access to the wise observer and guide that already exists within you. By bringing compassion and curiosity to all of your different parts, we can rediscover what home means to you, together. I work well with queer youth, couples and families. "

"Psychotherapy provides a unique space for you to explore your experience in life in a profoundly important way. In a culture that does not make space for "negative emotions", and idealizes independence, there is little room to get to know the parts of ourselves that we imagine others will not approve of. When we aren't in touch with all aspects of our humanity, effectively shutting out parts of our experience, we can find ourselves feeling confused, depressed and/or anxious, having trouble in relationships with others, not enjoying our work, having difficulty processing grief and loss, or struggling with issues related to our identity."

"I'm a psychotherapist, relationship specialist, wife and mom. Many of us can recognize patterns of our behavior that were previously helpful but now get in the way of the kinds of relationships we want. In many ways navigating difficult circumstances allowed us to survive or even thrive, however the ways we find now to cope don’t benefit us in the long run. The ways these interactions show up can surprise us at times, because while our lives can feel full and abundant, there can also be a flip side of sadness, resentment, and worry."

"It's a big decision to make some changes in your life. Therapy can be a support. An effective therapy is a space where your experiences can be discussed with authenticity and candor, and you feel support and understanding in this process. My approach is thoughtful, kind, collaborative and curious. I work relationally and psychodynamically, meaning that we will give some careful consideration to how past experiences may be in present-day obstacles. Through this process, connections are made that may facilitate a deeper understanding of you, your relationships, and importantly, offer some relief from punishing patterns."

"Tired of feeling down, anxious, or simply not your best? Ready to do more than just talk about it? If so, body oriented therapy may be for you. With body oriented therapy, we will explore not only your thoughts and emotions, but also the physical sensations, postures, and gestures that come with them. This is important because tuning into your body can help you understand your feelings, thoughts, and life experiences more deeply. This understanding can support you in being the person you want to be and creating the life you want to have. The first step to change is becoming aware of how you are feeling, thinking, and being now. "
