Life can be overwhelming and you are not alone in your struggles. Though reaching out for help can feel scary, making this choice is often transformative. You deserve support and to have hope in your life. Therapy is a process where this happens and I find it an honor to walk beside and gently guide you through whatever you may be experiencing. I believe in basing our therapeutic relationship on acceptance, genuineness, and empathy. I work with all types of people--children, adolescents, and adults--who are struggling with the external, internal, or both in a non-judgmental, strengths-based, trauma-informed manner.

We all have a unique journey in life, as individuals and as couples, and I believe that our resilience is as unique as our journey. I work with clients to help them overcome distressing cycles that make them feel stuck and empower them to find stability, create healthier relationships and live an enriched life. Together we explore underlying emotions and find new ways of coping with past traumas, difficult life transitions, loss, relational distress and other mental health issues. While EMDR, mindfulness and cultural sensitivity are at the core of my practice, I also integrate Psychodynamic and CBT interventions.

As your therapist, my goal is to help you recognize and become your best self. Together, we will come to a greater understanding of the fear, anxieties, and challenges you face and work towards discovering solutions. I specialize in working with couples in distress using Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy, created by Sue Johnson. We all get stuck in negative patterns of communication from time to time. When the destructive cycle takes permanent residence, it can feel horribly scary, isolating, and hopeless. But I've witnessed firsthand how EFT can be effective even with couples on the brink of despair.

Approaching therapy can be very scary and may feel like just another thing on your to do list. You may feel apprehensive about sharing intimate details of your life with a complete stranger or perhaps therapy isn't your first rodeo at all and you're seeking something specific. No matter the need, I believe therapy is for everyone. The difference between therapy and a friend is 1. You pay a considerable amount of money, give dedicated time to your concerns, have peace and quiet, and resources ready for you to grab at your own leisure instead of someone else telling you the shoulda, coulda, woulda's.
