Life is challenging. We all benefit from receiving support as we navigate transitions, relationships, and the constancy of change. I have 20 years' experience supporting people who span a diverse range of ages and cultural backgrounds. My approach integrates body and sensory awareness with relaxation practices. I offer information about how neurobiological processes impact functioning and experience. The therapeutic relationship is collaborative and dynamic as we observe and shift unhelpful patterns of thought and behavior. Some people choose to make art as part of most meetings; others prefer to mostly talk.

Individual, Couples/Relationship, Teen Counseling. LGBTQIA+, Poly, Sex-Positive, & Kink friendly. Folks tend to come to me when they are feeling stuck around their anxiety or depression. They usually are holding questions around their sexuality/identity, life transitions, and processing grief or loss. They know that they have the wisdom to resolve these feelings inside, but they are feeling stuck on how to access them. Everything feels a little garbled, and I help them clear the way to access the answers to the questions they are holding.

Psychotherapy is a uniquely effective way to address and process deeply rooted issues that manifest in ways that are painful, confusing, and make people feel out of control. I work with children, adolescents, and adults in individual therapy, using a collaborative approach that centers on empathy, understanding, and exploration. My orientation is predominantly psychodynamic, and I tailor my approach to each individual to address unique circumstances and complexities. I strive to create a safe, warm, and validating environment that enables people to share and be vulnerable without fear of judgment.

There are many reasons to feel stuck in life. Sometimes it can feel overwhelming. That is when you get support. Together, we can work through it. Trauma, like most things, has a spectrum. We have all experienced it in one form or another. The key is to not compare, and to understand how we can change the way we react to things when we get triggered. I work very relationally, and I want to help guide and support you in the areas that may feel stuck and even scary. I have a background of working as an integrative therapist in a hospital, and have worked with people dealing with addiction, illness, depression, anxiety.

I am a licensed psychotherapist specializing in child and teen counseling. Families come to my practice feeling lost, worried and some at the recommendation of a school counselor, lawyer, friend or pediatrician. Many parents have read multiple books and tried various interventions at home or at school without success. This can feel frustrating and upsetting, although it is a motivating starting place. What these families all have in common is concern for a child who is struggling in some way and in need of a child counselor. I offer child counseling, family counseling, family mediation, reunification, and parent support.

Assisting you in working though thought patterns and feelings that are causing you distress is my goal.

Currently taking new clients on Mondays. As a depth psychotherapist, one of the things I do is help my clients know their unknown issues. I do this by creating a safe therapeutic environment in which to explore and bring repair to the past injuries and traumas holding my clients back from experiencing life and relationships in a full and meaningful way. I like to look at my client's dreams, artwork, and daily life experiences, to bring light and insight to blockages and barriers to their full experience and enjoyment of life. Such blockages can be past trauma, incorrect embedded beliefs, and ingrained thought patterns and habits.
