My PhD is in Counselor Education and Supervision with a specialization in integrating religion and/or spirituality into counseling from the lens of the psychology of religion and spirituality .
Psychotherapy can bring light to darkness, hope to fear, and empowerment to stuck-places that weigh on us. I understand my role as your therapist as being a co-journeyer in your path through healing into a healthier, fulfilling life. My style focuses on reflective-empathetic listening to promote self-acceptance and awareness; cognitive flexibility and experimenting with new choices; and the affirmation of strengths. I have specialized experience with eating disorders, body image (HAES), and the effect of loved ones' addictions/alcoholism. I also value how culture, class, education, and power differences affect close relationships.

I integrate a whole body approach to help you reach your mental and emotional goals, including examining thoughts, patterns, lifestyle, diet, movement, relationships, spirituality , and energetic frequency in your environment.
I am an empathic guide who will help you to challenge your limiting beliefs and find your voice. I love working with young adults and adults who are seeking to align with their values, be authentic, and trust their intuitive guidance and compass. Together we examine your patterns of relationship and thought and how early experiences may be impacting you today. By healing and processing past and current stressors, my clients learn how to trust themselves, protect themselves energetically, and develop coping skills that leave them feeling empowered and confident in meeting the world as it changes around them.

I have experience in crisis intervention, anxiety and depression management, challenges related to spirituality /faith struggles, behavior management, trauma, and grief and loss.
I have a passion for helping people learn to navigate through life's challenges. My main goal in counseling is to provide a non-judgmental, safe space for people to speak freely and learn more about themselves. I don’t believe there is "one size fits all" approach to therapy and I pull from various theories and therapeutic interventions to create change and growth in each client.

My therapeutic approach is informed by my background in meditation, Eastern contemplative philosophy, and evolutionary psychology. I work with clients to establish a treatment plan that is uniquely sensitive to their particular clinical needs and concerns. Some of the most common techniques I employ focus on the important relationship between body and mind; these experiential, somatic, and cognitive interventions allow for critical shifts in perspective that promote meaningful and enduring behavioral change.

Scrolling through profiles to find a therapist can be such a process - I empathize with you! I imagine you're dealing with a great deal of stress in this moment and really need some hope that things can change. As social beings, we often feel expected to appear highly functional when we are carrying around so much fear and heartache, be it related to trauma, relationships, perfectionism, change, loss or something as seemingly simple as eating. I also understand the added pressure of having marginalized identities, and the worry that you won't feel safe or seen by a healthcare professional.

It takes a lot of Courage to seek help. For most, the journey begins when the struggle becomes overwhelming or unbearable. The Willingness to accept support & guidance usually does not come easy. I applaud anyone who does so. Basic human needs include survival, a sense of belonging, power, freedom and fun. When these elements are not in place or are out of balance, we can present as anxious, depressed, stressed out and angry. I work well with people who are wanting to gain clarity around imbalances, and who want to take action on making changes that align with, and help to maintain, personal integrity.

I listen to my clients and engage them around the unique stories they share so we can set goals and a treatment plan that is personally tailored to each individual and/or couple. My approach is a relational one such that I use our therapeutic connection to facilitate change.

My primary focus is clients with intense levels of depression, anxiety, and mood issues. I run an intensive outpatient group for individuals who were recently inpatient for suicidal thoughts or attempts, or people struggling and trying to improve their life before things become so bad that they need to go to a hospital. I also see clients individually for trauma therapy. I am a certified traumatic brain injury therapist, and have extensive experience working with individuals suffering from post-concussive issues.

The teenage years are the most vulnerable, exciting, and growing years of a young person’s life. Self discovery can often yield low self esteem, independence can easily shift to rebellion, and a slow maturation process often creates impulsive decision making. And when a parent’s warnings and worries don’t seem to have an impact on the teenager’s course, or when it feels too heavy to carry alone, it’s helpful to have another guiding force to help. Through counseling, an adolescent can feel understood, begin to understand themselves, and learn to understand and accept their role in the family and society.

Spirituality Therapists

What should I expect from therapy that incorporates a focus on spirituality?

Spirituality can mean different things to different individuals, depending on their experiences, beliefs, and life histories. Some individuals focus on strengthening their belief system, while others experience spirituality in secular ways, such as through meditation, yoga, or by spending time in nature. Clients can expect a therapist to help guide and grow their spirituality through any of these techniques, encouraging the individual to cope with the challenges they face and develop strategies to build resilience and purpose to improve their outlook in life.

What are the most common treatments that include spirituality?

There are several treatments that incorporate spirituality. Mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT) helps a person examine and reframe their negative thoughts and behaviors. Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) focuses on emotional acceptance and psychological flexibility. Existential therapy is most often used to address anxiety, depression, grief, loneliness, apathy, despair, questions of identity, and feelings of purposelessness and existential dread. Transpersonal therapy focuses on a client’s spirituality and meaning in life and may incorporate techniques including meditation, visualization, hypnotherapy, dream analysis, and or breathwork.

Can therapy incorporating spirituality help atheistic or agnostic individuals?

Yes. For non-believers, spirituality can offer benefits including a greater sense of connection to others and to the natural world. An interest in spirituality may also spur individuals to pursue mindfulness practices, or to contemplate their purpose in life and how to achieve it.

How effective is spirituality as a therapeutic remedy?

​​Research suggests spirituality is generally beneficial for individuals. It is correlated with better health habits, such as less substance use, and an improved capacity to cope with stress and other mental health challenges. Increased spirituality can lead individuals to become more empathic and less materialistic, as well.
