To those around you, you may look like you have it all together. But on the inside, you are screaming. You're hiding the obsessive thoughts and "crazy" compulsions you engage in so you can maybe lower your level of anxiety. You can't sleep due to your anxiety. You've tried to make changes, but it never gets better. These are secrets that you think no one will understand.

Our first priority when we meet will be to establish trust and mutual respect in the relationship so that you begin to feel comfortable and safe. Therapy can be a rewarding experience but for many people it can feel daunting and unfamiliar at first. Our initial sessions will be focused on establishing safety. I also believe that clients are best served by helping them to understand their own experiences, strengths and by exploring both positive and traumatic experiences from their past. I take a teaching approach, often providing education about attachment and neuroscience, as clients express interest.

Welcome! I offer professional, personable, compassionate, Integrative Psychotherapy with a Trauma Informed Care perspective. I utilize a variety of strategies and concepts to meet you where you are. I trained with Marsha Linehan in DBT and integrate this into treatment when helpful. I have training in Sensorimotor Expressive Arts Therapies, working with 'the bottom up' approach rather than starting with the cognitive, as trauma research recommends for many. I do often use art therapy for symbolic and metaphorical expression of experience, and do talk/insight therapy with my clients as well - I am process oriented.

Most of us have never been taught how to build great relationships, raise children, or to be content and find meaning; these issues tend to cause us a great deal of stress. Stress is a major cause of anxiety and behaviors that you want to change. However, you have the building blocks within you to put together great relationships, raise children, and have a meaningful flourishing life. Sometimes the building blocks you already have get jumbled and need to be adjusted. Errors in thinking lead us to feel bad and spiral downward or become anxious or depressed.
