I see people as having rich, complex human emotions that are not well described with overly simple and often stigmatizing diagnostic labels like depression or generalized anxiety. Each person is entirely unique, with their own history, strengths, and challenges. In therapy, I will work with you to better understand yourself. When we can understand why you might be feeling or thinking or acting in a way that is not best for you, we can work together to change it in a way that is tailored to your needs and your circumstances.

We can't change our destination overnight but we can change our direction. A deep and felt understanding of how and why we live our lives can allow us to reorient ourselves to a more fulfilling life. I believe that therapeutic treatment must be tailored to each individual person seeking change. I work with adults who have endured trauma, feel anxious or depressed. I see couples that have drifted apart, struggle with anger, parenting difficulties and adolescents overwhelmed with the highs and lows of emerging adulthood. I also work with expectant parents and infant parent dyads having difficulty connecting with each other.

You've spent years in talk therapy, have hit a plateau and are wondering if you’re not meant to fully heal or if therapy actually works. You are bright, sensitive, and big-hearted but either feel like you’re stuck on ON (easily startled, racing thoughts that are difficult to control or turn off, struggling to relax and feeling flooded emotionally), or stuck on OFF (flat, lethargic, exhausted, foggy, unmotivated and disconnected from your vitality and energy). It is possible to deeply heal- you just need a more innovative and dynamic approach to do so.

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.

Are you really hard on yourself? Do you struggle with shame or guilt? Do you find yourself comparing yourself to others? Do you feel like you never measure up? Are you sensitive? If these are common themes in your life then perhaps we might be able to work together. I center my work around self compassion. I believe that only from a place of self compassion can we feel grounded within ourselves enough to develop a compassionate relationship with others around us.

Ultimately, this relationship-building endeavor leads to more present, choiceful, and connected experiences. I'm interested in present moment awareness. Together, we follow the thread of aliveness.
