If you are here, I want to help! I believe that therapy is meant to empower clients to know that they are capable of change and living a fuller, more integrated life. I work with adolescents and adults, utilizing a bio-psychosocial-spiritual approach in therapy with the goal of creating a safe haven for clients. This simply means integrating the many parts of a person into therapy in the hope of improving one’s emotional, spiritual and physical well-being. I also aspire to explore the impact of significant relationships and the influence of larger social systems on a client's sense of wholeness and ability to achieve desired growth.

I love to see people who are exploring helping themselves achieve a better space in their life. Many people are suffering, yet they aren't quite sure the next steps. I have experience working with many issues that can make you feel as if you have lost your path or wanting something more out of life. I try to adapt my style to your particular needs and take a collaborative approach, yet guided to therapy sessions. Sometimes we need a safe place to process our thoughts.

Anyone seeking knowledge, development, and relief from anxiety and depression is a candidate for Jungian therapy and possibly analysis. Those who are willing to engage in active dialogue with the energies of both the inner and outer worlds discover new or renewed life. It is a journey of soul work. Jungian analysis seeks to orient you to the original and whole Self you are, in both your higher development and in relationship to the world and others.

When you are triggered, have a trauma response, or in a PTSD loop it is overwhelming; this can be scary, and frustrating. Living life from this place makes it hard to connect with others and to know your sense of self. Challenging patterns become en-grained as feeling powerless leads to loss of hope. My goal with you is to help you acquire skills/tools to feel more embodied and to change the repetitive challenging loop by understanding more deeply the patterns at play. Self-empowerment is essential in our work together as my desire is to help you take your life back with confidence and ease.

Are you a college student that is seeking greater mental health and emotional well-being during your college experience? Right now, you are probably trying to answer the question: “Who am I?” This is a time when you can feel 'in-between,' and a little unstable; when your identity, values, personal relationships, living arrangements, social roles are all changing, AND you are trying to be successful in college! Whew, no wonder you feel overwhelmed! That makes sense! You are taking responsibility for yourself, but probably still feel like you are ‘not quite’ an adult. I absolutely love helping people navigate this in-between time.

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.
