Through humor and integrative evidence-based methods, I effectively work with a wide range of issues such as depression, anxiety, addiction, and relational difficulties.
It takes time to choose the best therapist for you. When you're ready, let's talk and see if we might be a good fit. I appreciate the importance of this process, which is why I offer a free phone consultation to address any questions or concerns you may have prior to scheduling an appointment. Consider me a resource- even if we don't end up working together. Remember, life can be much more than survival. Change is closer than you may think. Keep reaching out.

I practice somatic psychotherapy that is relational, attachment focused and informed by interpersonal neurobiology.
I utilize an integrated approach that considers body, mind, emotions, and spirit. This approach involves embarking on a journey with you in which I bring my entire presence to hold you with deep care, non-judgment, and a playful sense of humor. As you share your experiences with me, I will wholeheartedly attune to you with both my inner knowing and acquired knowledge and skills. I draw from decades of study of diverse therapeutic modalities, eastern wisdom traditions, and personal life experience. ​ I honor your unique strengths and capabilities and recognize that we are all at various points in the process of evolving.

I use an integrative approach, embracing Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness, Relational Therapy, Positive psychology, and wisdom traditions.
Due to the virus, high anxiety has increased dramatically. My clients wish to manage their anxiety and use this time proactively. Many of my clients have wounds from the past and suffer from depression, fears, perfectionism, loneliness, burn-out, weight, sleep problems, addictions, obsessions, and/or pain around their sexual orientation. It's important to process great losses and identify underlying trauma. Rape victims will find a compassionate ear. It is wonderful when my clients are open to improve their (love) relationships and open their heart to the present moment. My clients are brave for seeking support and facing issues.

Our lives have been turned upside down, as a nation and as human beings. It is not only the fear of contracting the COVID-19 virus, the fear that someone we care about may succumb to the virus, but also our financial stability and the upheaval to our lives, what we considered normal has been suddenly torn asunder. As a species, humans are highly adaptable. And, we will adapt to this too. Please reach out for help during these very trying times. It's better to act sooner than to wait if you feel your mental health is taking a toll.

My focus is on training the individual to understand his/her own process, so that dissociated material can be integrated, bringing the individual into the present moment.

My practice focuses on helping individuals, couples, and families who are suffering from emotional or physical pain or the aftereffects of trauma. We help them resolve the traumatic experience, as well as its consequences (e.g. physical pain, stress, disability, depression, anxiety, insomnia, medication dependence, isolation, etc.) Although most of our patients have not responded to prior therapies, we've had outstanding success in helping them move from feeling a severe loss to finding a new and positive beginning. We love to work with people who are ready to change and eager to learn how to do it.

Life doesn't come with instructions, and sometimes going through it on your own can be daunting. I enjoy working with adolescents, teens, and young adults presenting with relationship issues, finding personal authenticity, building self-esteem, and stress management. I find psychology and the human experience endlessly fascinating, and believe therapy can usher in change and transformation. The power of another holding you in highest regard when feeling most vulnerable is healing, and finding a person you trust to be with you in that space is a barrier in itself. My approach is strengths-based, genuine, and nonpathologizing.
