I offer treatment for additional concerns including: codependency/family conflict, anxiety, and complex trauma.
You look in the mirror and see the "bad" traits. That you're not thin enough, not righteous enough, not "good" enough. You realize that these traits were projected there by someone else--a partner, or maybe even a parent. You want to recover from perhaps a lifetime of emotional pain and narcissistic abuse but you don't know where to begin...I specialize in treating adult children of narcissists, cult abuse/religious trauma survivors, and those struggling with disordered eating and body image issues. I can support you in developing your inner strengths so that when you look in the mirror it will be your true self staring back at you.

I currently ONLY have availability for IFS Level 1 graduates seeking clinical consultation/therapy. Resolving trauma can be a long and difficult process. It is comforting - and essential - to have a compassionate and consistent therapist as you walk the road to healing and joy. With over 25 years of experience and a specialty in treating trauma, I can help provide the roadmap to a healthy resolution. Many clients try to avoid distressing memories, but this is rarely successful in the long run. With the newer trauma-specific treatments now available, perhaps together we can find our way to lasting peace.

I specialize in treating childhood trauma, chronic pain, adult children of alcoholics (ACOAs), post-traumatic stress disorder, and codependency.
With over a decade of experience in the mental health field I have worked with clients from all walks of life. While everyone is unique in their struggles, I believe that most suffering can be alleviated by addressing root causes such as early childhood traumas, nervous system dysfunction, and family of origin wounding.

I have particular interest in trauma, identity questioning and development, and relationship concerns.
I view psychotherapy as a collaborative experience between therapist and patient. I see my role as that of a space holder and guide. I will shed light on and explore what may be causing difficulty in your life, provide affirmation, and offer tools that will help sustain your therapeutic goals. I believe that transformation and change can evolve through collaboration and the development of a renewed narrative that is validating and hopeful.

I have experience helping with depression, anxiety, trauma, loss, chronic pain and illness.
Sometimes we look around and life is not the way we want it to be: full of disappointment, stress, sadness or loss. Sometimes we need help finding our way. In my practice, I seek to create a compassionate, supportive space for collaborative exploration, growth and positive change. I create a place where you can be seen and acknowledged, and you can give words to feelings and experiences, to discover greater understanding and self- awareness. When we understand our patterns of behaviors and feelings, we can free ourselves of the unwanted burdens that weigh us down, and live more fully and happily in the present.

My practice is trauma-informed, and I am dedicated to an anti-oppression, anti-racist, body positive/neutral, LGBTQIA+ affirming and equitable lens.
Do emotions take over and exhaust you? Have people marveled at how resilient you are or mentioned your sensitivity as a liability? Maybe you sometimes wonder if you’re the only one who is seeing the hurt and pain all around. It’s likely you have figured out how to adapt to what the world wants you to be. You present the part of yourself that is widely accepted by your community and our social systems, but what about the rest of YOU? If any of this speaks to you, I relate and I can help. I guide young adults, adolescents, and children to connect to their inherent worth, power, and self-compassion.

You want to thrive, to feel like your life is moving in a clear direction, that you have a purpose and that you’re no longer cycling through patterns that have only caused you more pain. You’re tired of feeling like you are going around in circles, feeling “stuck” but you're not exactly sure why or what to do. Maybe you can’t remember the last time you weren’t feeling anxious, exhausted, or doubting yourself. You’re curious about what a life full of intention, joy, and peace could be like but aren’t sure how to get there. I hear you; it’s time to transform.

I work from the understanding there is a part of us that is already whole and healed. Trauma can skew how we perceive ourselves and the world. Through therapy, we both tend to the hurt parts of ourselves and also cultivate an access point to the whole, healed self. We practice ushering our habitual emotional and mental patterns into our awareness in order to remove blockages to allow us to be the person we’d love to be and to live the life we’d love to live.

We specialize in EMDR therapy, trauma-informed therapy, and yoga therapy through a spiritual lens to address various challenges like anxiety, stress, toxic relationships, and workplace trauma.
Your mind races, trapped in a cycle of overthinking. Saying 'no' feels impossible, burdened by guilt and obligation. Frustration builds, leaving you moody and irritable, longing for support. Masking true feelings becomes second nature, craving validation and acceptance. Doubt plagues every decision, fueling the belief that you'll never measure up. It's a constant battle, wondering if there's a way to break free from anxiety and self-doubt. But you can find the peace and clarity you deserve with support and guidance.
