I'm a psychotherapist, relationship specialist, wife and mom. Many of us can recognize patterns of our behavior that were previously helpful but now get in the way of the kinds of relationships we want. In many ways navigating difficult circumstances allowed us to survive or even thrive, however the ways we find now to cope don’t benefit us in the long run. The ways these interactions show up can surprise us at times, because while our lives can feel full and abundant, there can also be a flip side of sadness, resentment, and worry.

Sometimes difficult experiences make us feel like we are stuck in quicksand; the more we try to breakout, the further down we fall. Experiences we live through affect how we relate to others and how we feel about ourselves. My goal as a psychologist is to help give you strategies to escape the quicksand.

Are you tired of feeling stuck and that nothing seems to change no matter what you do? Maybe you are feeling overwhelmed and anxious and it’s starting to affect your relationships and your work. Or maybe it’s because you’re in a relationship where you have the same fights over and over and nothing seems to get better. Unresolved hurt and resentment may be making you feel distant from your partner. You may long to be closer but feel unsure that things can change. Feeling disconnected or distant from others is painful and can leave us feeling alone, insecure and full of self-doubt.

Choosing a therapist can be intimidating, especially for people of color. We might find ourselves wondering if our therapist will "get" what it's like to be us. I believe each person, couple, and family brings with them a set of unique experiences, values, and goals, often influenced by various cultural factors. Perhaps you are an individual looking for a safe space to explore your identity, including race, ethnicity, and gender. Maybe you are in a cross-cultural relationship and want help navigating tricky topics productively. It could be your family is in conflict around generational differences and opposing values.

Finding the right match in a therapist is essential to beginning this uniquely personal process. Therapy often gets a bad name when there is a sense of disconnect between client and therapist, which can make therapy feel like another struggle. Life is challenging enough. I am committed to creating a comfortable and genuine dialogue with each client, or to offering more fitting outside referrals. I am able to put people at ease, welcoming humor where appropriate.

Are you worried about self-defeating tendencies? Why do you get in your own way in relationships, at work, in school, or in expressing your inspiration and creativity? We look together at the barriers to success that interfere with productivity and peace of mind. Because I co-authored the book, "Procrastination: Why You Do It; What To Do About It NOW," (and because it took me six years to complete my dissertation!) I like to help people overcome procrastination and achieve their goals. My other specialities include: grief, trauma, relationship difficulties, sexual and gender confusion, low self-esteem.

Coping with Covid-19 & shelter in place: We’re living in a time of uncertainty, stress and anxiety that is likely once in a lifetime. Survival fears about sickness and death have suddenly surfaced in a manner that most of us have never experienced. For those of us that have pre-existing PTSD, depression or anxiety, those feelings may be particularly amplified. We’re all seeking safety, comfort, and connection during this environment of extreme isolation. In response to these realities, I am offering therapy sessions, including EMDR using Zoom, FaceTime, or phone. Take care of yourselves and take care of one another.

I have worked with adult individuals for over sixteen years and specialize in helping people live more conscious, meaningful and contented lives. In living though a global crisis, finding our ground and our truth is more critical than ever. Learning about the source of anxiety or deep feelings of sadness; sorting through relational issues such as a need for better boundaries; bringing awareness to coping mechanisms that aren't working anymore (substance use, over eating, compulsive shopping) - these are a few of the ways therapy can help you gain more balance and well-being in your life - even during this unprecedented time.

Whatever your reasons for coming to therapy, I will meet all parts of you with respect and non-judgment. My sense of humor and realness helps you get comfortable, and even laugh sometimes; my grounded, caring presence makes it safer to talk about and experience challenging emotions. Therapy work with me involves thoughts and insights from the mind, feelings and sensations living in the body, and relationships with others in the world (particularly the one between client and therapist); a balance of resources which we will use to help you explore, understand, integrate, and move yourself closer to healing.

Do you feel tired and overwhelmed? Are you exhausted from bobbing and weaving around the needs of others? Is it difficult for you to ask for and trust in help? While you feel depleted, there is still a spark within, guiding you to focus on your own wellness. Your head is barely above water, yet you are determined to emerge and need help to do so. Perhaps it is time to enter a relationship with a therapist; a collaborator who can journey with you to explore your past, build mindful awareness in the present, and develop skills to achieve your future goals of self compassion, acceptance and authentic connection to yourself and others.

It can be hard to recognize at first, but painful experiences often provide opportunities for immense personal growth and deeper connection to yourself and others. They offer a chance to tap into our own innate wisdom and capacity to grow, while developing new strategies for navigating life’s inevitable twists and turns. I provide strength-based, trauma-informed, somatic psychotherapy to youth, adults, and families who are seeking support with changing patterns that no longer serve them, creating a path towards greater resilience and meaning in their lives. I welcome clients of all ages, backgrounds, and identities.
