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.

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.

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.

Life in the time of Coronavirus; we're living through a historic global health crisis that's indescribably stressful. The blindingly fast pace of life has come to a grinding halt. We're accumulating losses, some more than others. Everyone's survival stress and anxiety about sickness, death, insecurity, uncertainty and loss have come roaring to the surface. If you have pre-existing PTSD, depression, OCD or anxiety, you may feel particularly affected. You may find you're relying more on compulsive behaviors to cope with stress. While it may feel surreal, this is actually a great time to start therapy.

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.

Therapy is an opportunity to feel genuinely seen and understood by another person, maybe for the first time. I believe that it is from this place--of knowing yourself with compassion and being known without judgment--that meaningful change is possible. I work with individuals who grew up with a parent with addiction/mental illness, those grieving a loss, and those who are tired of the same stuck dating and relationship patterns. I have helped couples navigate parenthood, racial and cultural differences, communication challenges and entrenched arguments, and physical and emotional intimacy issues.

I believe that healing can come from numerous sources, but one of the most powerful is through interpersonal connections. In my work, I provide a space for vulnerability and understanding that allows these connections to foster change. Therapy is like an objective mirror that reflects thoughts, feelings, and emotions. Through this mirror, you can begin to see a clearer picture of yourself, so much so, that eventually you can carry that image outside of the therapy room and be happy and confident in what you see. I believe to have this image, you must strengthen yourself and the relationships that are in it.
