Making the decision to approach therapy is a positive one, although you may have questions or anxieties around it. Therapy provides an opportunity to reflect on where you are, where you want to be, the way you are living and the choices you are making. At certain points in life we all can feel stuck, face challenges, experience frustrations and a sense of dissatisfaction in the way we live our lives. Therapy offers you a private, confidential space to explore, reflect and be heard, to gain clarity, and challenge yourself.

Therapy works best when it is tailored to your needs. My job is to provide a safe and welcoming place for you to show up just as you are, to feel heard and supported, and to work through the issues that are causing distress. Sometimes we know why we are feeling what we are feeling and sometimes we don’t—both are great places to start therapy. Together we can explore what is happening in your life and find solutions that best suit you. I enjoy working with teens and adults on a wide range of issues and most recently spent time working with adolescents as a school-based therapist in middle school and high school.

We all know that life is full of messiness, but what if we didn’t have to hold it together? What if we didn’t show a version of ourselves or wear a facade? What if we could be really honest about our experiences, thoughts, and feelings? Sometimes it’s hard to find places to allow our chaos, confusion and pain to come out of hiding and be seen. My hope is that you find comfort and safety to allow the mess to show up. I believe therapy offers us the invitation to do something different — to choose a new way. It can be an uncomfortable and powerful offer to be seen, known and heard for who you really are.

I am certain that no amount of research or birthing classes can prepare a person for the challenges of parenthood. As a mother myself, I understand some of the difficulties that come during the perinatal time period. Having the support you need can make a positive impact during this unique time. In therapy you can find a nonjudgmental space for processing and support.

There are many approaches to treating pain. Counseling deals primarily with common issues such as relationship problems, job stress or life changes. Psychotherapy goes into more depth and deals with specific symptoms such as depression, anxiety, or obsessive-compulsive traits. The goal of psychotherapy is not to "fix" external problems, although that can be the result; rather, the purpose of psychotherapy is to understand the internal world of the client. Change and struggle are inevitable -- but as we come to know and accept ourselves, we begin to respond to change and struggle in ways that cause us less distress.

To quote Søren Kierkegaard, "The most common form of despair is not being who you are." Traumatic and painful experiences can leave one feeling broken, small, disoriented, without words, stagnant and isolated. It can be hard to ask for help, but you might be relieved to know that psychotherapy is not about pinpointing or exploiting what's wrong with you. It is about becoming who you really are. We all need safe spaces to breathe, think, feel, express, move and be seen; to begin forming language around our experiences and to find reconnection and integration to and between our emotional, cognitive and physical bodies.

I believe that we learn, struggle, fail, grieve, endure, and thrive best in the context of relationship. But even with the hope of connection, accepting the invitation of relationship may feel risky. Being seen and honored—not in spite of the unseen parts of you, but because of them—can feel upending, even dangerous. In a culture that by and large fosters virtual engagement over physical presence, this therapeutic work invites us back into our bodies, and back into genuine connection with ourselves and others. When we are aware of our emotional and bodily experience, we then gain the ability to regulate that experience.

I believe that within each of us there lies uncharted terrain, eagerly waiting to be explored. Therapy can be a great tool to explore those domains. My primary therapeutic approach is Relational Psychodynamic Psychotherapy which means building an authentic therapeutic bond, exploring relational themes from childhood, and dynamics in the present moment are key components to my therapeutic work. Within this modality I integrate experiential components such as art, music, visualizations, mindfulness/meditation, movement and more. I believe that approaching therapy in these ways can offer a more embodied, formative experience.

Psychotherapy involves entering into the stuck places of your life and listening for how you struggle to live freely and authentically. It involves discovering, caring for, and reshaping the parts of your mind that are related to the problems you experience. This may involve learning to recognize unhelpful responses to pain that have themselves evolved into addictive or compulsive behaviors, addressing problematic relational patterns or making room to feel the deep hurts of loss or trauma and learning how to live well with the wounds that have shaped you.

The decision to begin therapy is often a difficult one and choosing a therapist can be overwhelming. My practice is focused on self-care, trusting yourself, being curious about yourself, and finding what does and does not work for you in your life. I draw heavily from the work of Brené Brown, specifically her research on developing more connection, shame-resilience, the ability to be vulnerable, and the opportunity to have more connection and joy in our lives. I have experience working with a variety of clients and find the best outcomes emerge when the therapeutic relationship is collaborative and transparent.

Psychodynamic therapy in 98103, also known as insight-oriented therapy, evolved from Freudian psychoanalysis. Like adherents of psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapists believe that bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness promotes insight and resolves conflict. But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in 98103 are able to work with a wide range of issues. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in 98103
