“Courage doesn’t happen when you have all the answers. It happens when you are ready to face the questions you have been avoiding your whole life.”-Shannon Alder. Is that normal? Why do I do this to myself? Why can't I just accept it and move on? When do I get the old "me" back? And how many therapists do I need to see before I get better? Questions like these can eat away at us for years, robbing us of the joy and serenity we crave. We all deserve to find the answers, but first we may come to realize that we need to take hard looks at ourselves.

Will I ever be good enough?....Maybe I AM the crazy one?... Have you had these thoughts? Are you anxious, depressed, a chronic people pleaser? Have your "loved ones" blamed you for "everything that is wrong"? Do you hate the way they act around you, but then a few memories of when they were nice make you feel guilty for having those thoughts (cognitive dissonance)? This is all normal if you have experienced narcissistic abuse or emotionally immature parents. This is where I come in. Healing is a real possibility. You deserve it and I'm dedicated to helping you move from surviving to thriving!

My approach to therapy is through a relational lens, examining patterns in life that might contribute to "feeling stuck". My goal is to help you overcome such barriers and live your best life while fostering healthy relationships. I am a licensed psychologist, and have also worked as a licensed professional counselor previously before completing my current degree and licensure. My background includes diverse roles working with adult populations, and also teaching as an adjunct instructor. My research interests have included studying music and emotion.

Hello! Due to a focus on other offerings, I do not have psychotherapy openings. However, I am accepting new clients (Telehealth) for the Safe and Sound Protocol and mindfulness training. My psychotherapy approach is rooted in mindfulness, relational systems, trauma and nervous system informed intervention. Over the past several years I have trained in newer frameworks, including EMDR, Polyvagal Theory-informed therapy, somatic and sensory experiencing, as well as other trauma-informed techniques.

Are you struggling to remain psychologically flexible in an ever-changing world? Psychological flexibility means contacting the present moment fully as a conscious human being and based on what the situation affords, changing or persisting in behavior in the service of chosen values.

I work with those from all walks of life experiencing loss, intense emotions, family estrangement, and trauma. Healing is rooted in the understanding that experiences with systematic oppression have hurful effects on personal well-being, interpersonal relationships, and physical health. If you are experiencing doubt, fear, or lack of connection in your life, I can help. I utilize non-traditional approaches to explore connections between how cultural experiences affect dynamics between family members and within the community.

Immediate telehealth openings as of 4/22/24. Some wounds have a hard time healing. These wounds show up in different ways – sometimes through people-pleasing, feeling too guilty to relax, always keeping busy, struggling to say “no,” or lashing out at others. This pain comes with anxiety, low self-esteem, depression, and negativity about life - and other side effects. It can also make you feel “stuck” in some ways and unable to move forward. Maybe you’ve found yourself there – if so, you're in the right place. I want to help you take steps forward to heal your wounds and get back to living the life you envision for yourself.

Therapy is a collaborative experience where we work together on the reasons why you came to therapy. Through the growth and the development of the therapeutic relationship the reasons why you come to therapy can be explored in a safe and friendly environment so that you can become the person that you want to be. Also I accept many insurance plans through my private practice.

Therapy is a gift that you give to yourself. You allow yourself the time and space to sort through issues and challenges. You are brave enough to try new things, be honest with yourself, and deepen your understanding of yourself. As your therapist, it is my privilege to travel the path with you, helping you to create it and to guide you as you go. I view people through a healthy strivings lens. This means that I look for the healthy motivations that underlie even the most unhealthy behaviors, and I always find them. We then will work with those healthy strivings to find healthier and happier ways to live.
