I have training and experience supporting those managing anxiety, depression, trauma, grief and loss, depression and anxiety during the perinatal period, life transitions and stressors, and more.
Taking the first steps toward change can be hard and I want to team with you every step of the way. I believe each person has the innate capacity to heal, and that a trusting relationship with a therapist can be a support in that journey. Therapy should be a collaborative process, where you feel comfortable asking questions and can build clarity as you work toward your goals. In my practice, I strive to provide a space where you feel truly seen and can share openly. I tend to weave self compassion, mindfulness, and art creation into therapy, as ways to cultivate emotional resilience and deepen self discovery.

You've suffered a loss - and you're struggling with your "new normal." Maybe your loved one died; maybe you've lost a pregnancy or are struggling with infertility; maybe you or someone you love is facing a terrifying illness. Life as you knew it has changed forever, and continuing on feels overwhelming. You may feel alone, even with well-meaning people at your side who may not know how to help or what to say. Grief sucks, but with help, you can move on in ways that help you grow stronger and healthier.

Being a human can be really hard sometimes. Maybe it’s hard because there’s an area in our lives where we struggle, like in our careers or relationships. Perhaps, we’ve experienced some painful times that we haven’t fully healed from or find ourselves engaging in problematic behaviors. Whatever our struggles, I’ve found that psychotherapy can help reduce our suffering and help connect us to the joy of being alive.

When we are struggling with emotional or physical pain, hope can be tough to come by. If you are considering psychotherapy, there is good reason to be hopeful. As an evidence-based clinical health psychologist, I feel fortunate to practice at a time when the science behind psychotherapy is in full bloom. I am particularly passionate about mind-body approaches that combine modern cognitive and behavioral therapies with the wisdom that ancient contemplative practices have to offer.

Patients with cognitive, emotional, and behavioral challenges benefit from a variety of cognitive behavioral, neurobehavioral, and psychophysiological modalities. Patients with such conditions as emotional and physical trauma, chronic pain, addictions, brain injuries and disorders (autism, Asperger's, ADD/ADHD, motor and balance challenges, for example), sleep disorders, anxiety, and depression are treated. Individuals with neurological, autoimmune, metabolic, endocrinological, and other complex medical conditions find that the treatment modalities promote healing.
