I utilize a feminist, trauma-sensitive approach to support the healing of those who have experienced various forms of abuse, interpersonal violence and trauma. I use Eye-Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) to help clients understand, appreciate and reclaim control over the emotional and physiological responses that can come with trauma and PTSD. I acknowledge that the client is the expert in their life experience, and work to promote communication, coping skills, boundary setting and interpersonal dynamics that will facilitate the client's transition from surviving to thriving.

Whether you have tried therapy in the past and are seeking support again, or are just beginning your therapy journey – I’m so glad you are here. I believe healing happens in relationship – to ourselves, to our communities, and to others in our lives who we care deeply for. Through Somatic Mindfulness (body centered), Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), and Self-Compassion based theories, I view my role as a guide along the road back to yourself, the ones you love, and the life you want to feel present in.

I take a relational approach to psychotherapy, and work to create a space for clients to be genuine and transparent as we work together to address their needs. I am a good fit for individuals who are looking to gain deeper self-awareness and insight, increase meaning and fulfillment in their lives, and reduce mental health symptoms that interfere with their well-being. Those dealing with interpersonal difficulties, in addition to other mental health struggles such as anxiety, traumatic stress, and depression, often benefit from my integrative, relational approach to psychotherapy.

I invite you to a safe and held space where transmuting pain and suffering into embodied medicine is the natural human experience. As a relational and earth-conscious therapist, I believe alchemy is human nature. I specialize in guiding people through fear and loss, dissociation, grief, and trauma. My approach is holistic and multidimensional, as I weave ancient philosophies, energetics, and metaphysics with modern quantum, epigenetic, and neurobiological sciences. I believe all ways we have adapted to survive are gifts we can creatively embrace.

Intimacy, creativity, and feelings are essential aspects of nourishment when we are experiencing troubling times in our lives. The symptoms we experience such as depression, anxiety, or relationship challenges are often directing our attention to deeper meaning and understanding of ourselves. In my work with individuals and couples, we are often engaged in relationship and intimacy concerns and exploring ways to heal and experience self-love and self-trust. We all have survival, coping, and healing abilities that can help us grow and thrive under many circumstances. Sometimes assistance is needed to help these abilities develop.

One thing I did not learn growing up was how to understand what was really going on for me. I spent years not knowing how to listen to my own feelings or what to do once I found them. And I am still learning. A little more all the time. I have spent the past decade studying how to become aware of the subtle signals in a situation and how to follow them in a way that shows who we really are and what we really want. The learning and unlearning this takes has become my devotion. Being with others and doing this together has become my passion.

It can be lonely and distressing to feel stuck in patterns of negative thinking, conflict, or disconnection from those most important to you. I believe that therapy is a unique space where you as the client can pause, reflect, and speak freely and honestly about the parts of your life you want to see improve. I have experience helping people navigate a wide variety of challenges including relationship distress, infidelity, divorce, depression, anxiety, trauma, men’s issues, and life transitions. Therapy can be an opportunity to take meaningful steps toward changing your relationships and living in a more authentic and connected way.

We tend to think we should be able to go it alone, or talk with a friend,...or just TRY HARDER when life feels overwhelming and difficult to bear. Sometimes these attempts fall short, making it easy to blame ourselves, feel discouraged and disconnect from ourselves and our relationships. Even asking for help seems hard! That's why I am passionate about helping individuals and couples who are courageously finding their way through those tough times. I believe that we all have an internal wellspring of strength, wisdom, and hope - and counseling offers gentle guidance and support to move toward feeling better and more like YOU!

In the midst of it all, it can seem as if there is no way out—that these emotions will last forever. You're tired of life feeling dreary, tiresome and hopeless. The anxiety and sadness have gone on far too long. It's a lonely and isolating place to be. You can't help but wonder, "How long can I go on this way?!" There is hope. Therapy can help anyone—including you! Armed with the right tools, you can overcome the fear and sadness.

My ideal client is someone that could benefit from a coaching model, such as those feeling stuck in starting a business, wanting greater success, or those looking to access flow states, greater authenticity, peak performance, etc. I also like to work with clients who have attained success--but looking for a "boost" of motivation, flow, and creativity. I also work with clients overcome by poor self-esteem or self-image difficulties, anxiety/social anxiety, and need greater confidence. I utilize mindfulness techniques, dream journaling and interpretation, coaching, etc.
