It takes courage to seek help, and the rewards of doing so can lead to a lifetime of fulfillment. I understand and have experienced the emotional challenges life has to offer. In working together, we will cultivate growth by understanding the obstacles that you face and develop solutions that can help you gain control of your life and achieve your goals. Ultimately, therapy can lead you to greater self-awareness, self-esteem, and most importantly, a more fulfilling life.

I work with adults 18+ that struggle with generalized anxiety, social anxiety, depression, chronic pain, low self-esteem, relationship concerns, or really anyone interested in personal growth and self-exploration. I believe we all have an inner guide (whether you call this your gut/intuition, your higher self, or your inner wisdom) that can direct us toward healing, joy, and fulfillment if we allow it to. My goal is to help you access this inner guide and learn to really listen to it!

My intention for you is to gently but dynamically create opportunities for growth and healing through flexible and creative alternatives to break through old patterns. I like to collaborate with motivated clients who are willing to work to change their lives. My goal is to help you discover your own solutions to your problems and concerns in an environment that is welcoming, empathetic and non-judgmental. I do that by carefully attending to your thoughts and feelings. Although I will offer specific "interventions" I believe that change occurs during therapy when there is strong motivation combined with the quality of our connection.

I believe that a healthy outlook comes from having a good grasp of your ABC's... Accept, Balance, Cope. People often say things like, "I need to let it go," or "I need to forgive ...," etc. But we rarely talk about what it means to do that. Those phrases mean accepting that life is what it is-a balance of both good and bad-and making a choice to focus on the things we CAN change. Then "it" can stop directing our lives-we cope. Whether you need to let go of anger, fear, or sadness, I can help!

At some point in our lives, it is not uncommon to find ourselves struggling with the unexpected life situations brought on by medical conditions, disability, or the demands of work, family, health and life. I am specialized in the treatment of emotional adjustment difficulties brought on by neurological and medical conditions, disability, brain injury, work-life balance, caregiving demands, and demanding academic and professional careers. Specifically, I work with ordinary people attempting to cope with demanding and the oftentimes unexpected twists and turns of life.

Now Accepting New Clients! Clients are distressed - sometimes they know why and sometimes they don't. The journey starts when asked what is bothering them the most, and there is the starting point. Sometimes these thoughts in error are so deeply embedded -we don't even see them for what they are - and what they are doing to us. In therapy we reframe these thoughts - but first one needs to become aware of them. The journey together includes identifying their strengths, options available to them, and find coping skills or solutions that work for them. The goal is to be free from constant distress.

In a world that encourages the creation of a chaotically tough exterior, I want to work with you to find your strength in peace and softness. Being vulnerable is often very scary, but bravery is defined by facing your fears, not by the absence of them. It is my goal to provide a space where you feel safe enough to tap into your own power and help you cultivate the assertiveness needed to create a life of your design, something we all deserve but rarely give ourselves permission to have.

Does life seem too challenging and uncertain? Awake at 3am unable to quiet your mind. Overwhelmed by anxiety? Immobilized by depression? Possibly you abandon your feelings to defer to others. You may be outwardly successful yet that doesn't ease your inner distress. A voice in your mind reminds you of perceived shortcomings leaving you feeling inadequate. Discouraged from trying to move forward but feel stuck? Whatever you're experiencing you don’t have to face it alone. You’re a woman seeking a deeper understanding of yourself—in relationships, beyond responsibilities & self-defeating patterns which create barriers to intimacy.

It happened again, last night. You and your partner got into a big fight over something so small, you can’t even remember how it started. How did it get so big, so fast? You don’t know how to make it clear that you’re listening, you get it. You know you sound harsh, and that you’re defensive. But what else can you do? The past comes up, your character goes on trial, and whatever you say just makes things worse. And saying nothing feels like taking all the blame. You can’t let things go because you’ve done so much of that already. You’re in such a sensitive place that you’re losing hope, and that’s the scariest part.

I am passionate about working with folks highly motivated to grow and create positive change in their lives by breaking cycles of abuse and trauma. Clients of mine have described themselves as “too self-aware for therapy” or an “intellectualizer,” often due to the intersection of neurodivergence (ADHD/Autism) and complex trauma.

Female Therapists

Does it matter what gender my therapist is?

In general, this is not an important factor, as there is no relationship between a therapist’s gender and their efficacy. Some clients, however, prefer to see therapists of a particular gender, whether due to their own past experiences with men and women, or ingrained beliefs about how people of different genders think and behave. Exploring the roots of such preferences and considering what one wants to address in therapy can help someone determine whether their therapist’s gender truly matters to them.

Should I see a female therapist?

Many people—not just women—prefer to see a female therapist, either because they believe that a woman will be able to relate to their specific challenges (for example, sexism in the workplace) or because they imagine feeling more comfortable disclosing sensitive information to a woman. Such beliefs may not turn out to be accurate, however, and adhering too rigidly to a gender preference can at times hinder a client from finding the best therapeutic match.

Do therapists get specific training to help with women’s concerns?

Therapists are trained to provide care to clients of any gender. However, some therapists—both men and women—may pursue additional training in feminist therapy, gender-specific issues, or women’s mental health. Female clients may wish to ask prospective therapists whether they have received specific training in the client’s primary area(s) of concern, or whether they have worked extensively with women on issues similar to their own.

How can I inquire about a therapist’s experience in treating women?

It’s OK—even encouraged!—to ask a therapist directly whether and how often they have treated women in the past, or whether they have treated women dealing with the client’s most prominent concern(s). Competent therapists will be happy to share their educational background, preferred treatment modalities, and prior client experience to help an individual find the therapist best suited to their needs.
