People come to me for help because their existing coping skills aren’t working. They often experience unhelpful thoughts they know aren’t true, even though they feel like they are. Their emotions are running their lives. As a therapist, my greatest passion is helping people regain control of their lives by learning how to manage their thoughts and feelings. I specialize in helping clients dealing with anxiety, depression, and low self esteem as well as those who are struggling to navigate life transitions. Ideal clients are motivated to work on themselves in and outside of our sessions.
Are you looking for an empathetic, supportive, solution-focused therapist? The clients I serve appreciate the connection we share and the candid, compassionate style that structures each therapy session. You don't have to continue feeling stuck in a relationship. Anxious or depressive symptoms don't have to continue to make each day a struggle. Loving yourself is possible. Change is difficult, but if you are ready for it, and you have the right tools, you can be successful. "You can change what's going on around you when you start changing what's going on within you."

Our relationships mean everything. Relationships to our family, our partners, our friends, and ourselves. The greater our understanding is to these spaces between creates the potential for greater satisfaction in our lives. When we are unhappy and suffering, our needs are not being met in a fundamental way. My vision for successful therapy is allowing the container to explore those spaces between. For the individual, we might explore the different ‘parts’ of the psyche. In relationship to others, we learn to communicate our needs while also honoring our partner’s and family's. I am here to help you in these endeavors.

Are you struggling with your relationship with your children, partner or family member? Maybe your in an unhealthy pattern of communicating, and it just seems impossible to get out of, as though you are having the same argument over and over and things are not changing. Perhaps you are a single mom who feels like no matter what you do, patterns in your life are just not changing? People get stuck in unhealthy patterns of interactions that lead to unwanted symptoms, such as anxiety, behavior problems, OCD, and much more.
I believe that we all struggle with trauma, and most mental health challenges stem from how one adapts to these experiences. I specialize in working with trauma, identifying how it is held in the body, the strategies we uphold as defense mechanisms, and how to negotiate with our inner self to move toward a healthy healing of mind and body. Coming from either a top down approach for those thinker types, or a bottom up approach for those feeler types, we will compassionately reconnect the mind and body, in order to achieve relief and greater connectivity to self and others.
I am highly skilled at helping clients with depression, anxiety, relationships, chronic illness, life transitions, and work/life balance. What brings individuals and couples to therapy is complicated and personal.

I see the root of all challenges as relational--whether it is how we relate to ourselves, others, to our distractions of choice, or to the stories we tell ourselves.
