I am not accepting new clients. Disappointment, stress, and trauma can make us forget who we really are: inherently good beings, capable of giving and receiving love in a balanced, healthy way. I can help you to remember, by providing a safe, warm, and welcoming space where you can share your experiences. We'll explore your story together and, along the way, take a look at your strengths, your potential, and what stands between you and strong, healthy connections with yourself and others. I have a deep understanding of how essential - and fragile - trust can be.

As humans we are built for connection and have a biological need to feel loved, understood, accepted and secure. When these key ingredients are missing from our most important relationships, it can be isolating and may lead to feelings of anxiety, loneliness, frustration or even resentment. If you find yourself struggling with such feelings, therapy can help you learn the necessary skills to reduce relationship tension and improve communication in your relationships (romantic, friends, family or even at work). I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker specializing in behavioral, emotional and communication difficulties.

Your distressing emotions may be what bring you to therapy, but they can also be a doorway to hope, curiosity, insight, and self-compassion. They provide an invitation to access the strength and worth within you, and an opportunity to heal and move forward with greater ease. I have the privilege of working with individuals that are experiencing the anxiety, sadness and confusion that arise from complex trauma. These show up as issues in relationships, feelings of overwhelm, "stuck-ness", low self-worth and difficulty finding joy in life.

Having a mental health therapist should be as ordinary as having a primary care physician. Everyone is unique and has their own story, therapy can benefit everyone from children to adults.

I have been a psychologist for 29 years and work with clients who are interested in exploring their options in how they live in the world. I see the therapeutic process as a dialogue between two partners in exploration and developing resources. For me choice supports health and that clients sometime come with a lack of awareness of these choices or needing to develop more internal and interpersonal supports. I work in the present moment as well as connecting present patterns to client's history as well as the larger contextual field. My approach is relational and somatic from a Gestalt Therapy base.
