Feeling understood, feeling helped, and feeling supported are at the core of psychotherapy. This process also includes developing and enhancing self understanding. Many people contemplate calling a therapist for a long time, unsure of what to expect or how to proceed. Together, we can explore and understand difficult issues in your life and gain a deeper understanding of your situation. Through this process, we can begin to offer you new emotional experiences. In a safe setting with warmth and engagement, I provide an opportunity to gently move through what is bothering you most.

Seeking support for yourself and/or child requires courage and humility. When we experience emotional safety, we begin to understand our ourselves more deeply. I strive to provide each of my clients with a safe, comforting, and non-judgmental environment where we can build a therapeutic alliance based on trust. My style is warm, interpersonal, client-centered, and challenging at times, focused mainly on our relationship in order to promote long-term fulfillment.

I work with women navigating the path to motherhood, including pregnancy and the postpartum period. I believe our past relationship experiences offer emotional clues that can illuminate current interpersonal patterns, and I help clients uncover this insight in a way that can lead to long-term change. In a fast-paced culture where spoken conversations are beginning to fade away; psychotherapy remains a place where clients can speak their narratives aloud, using psychotherapy as a healing opportunity to have their stories witnessed.

My "ideal" patient is ready to make changes s/he has long wanted and feels able to explore the barriers to emotional well-being in partnership with an experienced therapist. Building a healthy relationship in therapy is not only essential to immediate goals, but is a skill that patients take away for use with on-going problem-solving.

No matter how dark your struggle, there is a part of you that knows how to heal. The map to wholeness is inside you, like the map to a flower is already within its seed. I trust the timing and direction of this process and strive to create a safe, trustworthy environment for it to unfold. My style is warm and real. I will not diagnose or try and "fix" you. I will not analyze you. I will pay deep attention to what's happening in for you in the moment - mind, body and spirit.

Do you feel stuck? Many people begin psychotherapy because they feel something is "off". They are dissatisfied, but unclear about what they want; they feel that "something is missing," but they're not sure what it is. Others begin psychotherapy because they find themselves repeatedly cycling through unhealthy relationship patterns and they want to change. Additionally, we all have traumas and woundings within us, to varying degrees. Psychotherapy can help untangle these knots and move you through suffering and pain towards greater health, integration, wholeness, vitality, and well-being.

You try to be a good person and want more from life yet sometimes it feels like you're just going through the motions. You're functioning, but you can’t get rid of that voice—the one telling you that you’re not good enough, don’t deserve love, peace or happiness, deserved what happened to you, and that this is it in life. Your unresolved “stuff” – the anxiety, PTSD, trauma – keeps popping up at the most inconvenient time and causing you trouble. Relationships are hard. You can’t really relax. Anger eats at you. You’re tired of feeling “stuck” and uneasy in your own mind and body. What you really want is to finally feel at peace.

Many of us hold on to what is familiar, routine and predictable, even when what we cling to is no longer serving us. Letting go of what is known is one of the hardest parts of growth. Change and growth are possible when a sense of security, safety, and genuine understanding is present. I provide individualized, culturally-attuned and effective psychotherapy. You might have tried psychotherapy before, and perhaps it brought you through a stormy time, but ultimately left you to find yourself repeating well-worn patterns and holding the same insecurities that led you to seek help initially.

Often they report feeling "stuck," frustrated in their creative expression or in their ability to change or move forward in their lives.
