I believe that anyone who wants to make a change in their life can do it. My style is laid back, with an emphasis on listening and getting to know the client on their own terms, and assisting them with self expression when needed. My orientation is self psychological and relational. For some issues, I find that a more structured, directed approach is helpful. I have recently incorporated DBT skills groups into my practice.

I approach things from a direct, affirmative, radically accepting, and relational-cultural lens.
Are you going through relationship issues, intimacy issues, sexuality/gender identity exploration, or trauma processing? Are you a part of the LGBTQ, ethical nonmonogamy, or kink/BDSM communities? It is instrumental to have a therapist who is non-judgmental, supportive and accepting of what you’re going through. If you are facing these issues and want support in a therapeutic space, I welcome you to join me, individually or as a relationship unit, to process and work through the obstacles you are facing. These topics have been taboo to discuss for too long. Join me in shedding the stigma and shame and in creating safety and trust.

My therapeutic approach combines mindful mind-body strategies and trauma processing techniques with a focus on relational and emotional change.
Life can be a struggle because of our internal and interpersonal difficulties. It can also feel daunting to reach out to another for help. The courage it takes to reach out is already the change process in motion in your life. My approach focuses not simply on the shame, guilt, anxieties, doubt and traumas that bring you to psychotherapy, but what is right and where is the glimmer of change in your struggles and traumas. I address traumatic experience, grief, addiction, emotional disturbances, life adjustments, and interpersonal stressors. I specialize in addiction recovery, PTSD and emotional disturbances, and personal growth.

It takes a lot of courage to seek help, especially in a world that unfairly stigmatizes getting psychological services. Lack of understanding of what therapy is and how people can benefit from it prevents some from using professional services to know and understand themselves better, to improve relationships, and to live more meaningful, fulfilling lives regardless of their challenges. Sometimes people have troubling symptoms due to anxiety, depression, and other disorders and need help to address these symptoms and their causes. I use a variety of approaches to help clients.

I continue to derive immense satisfaction from becoming a psychologist and exploring many paths and points of view about the nature of "reality", personally in my own work on myself and with others in psychotherapy (from physical/behavioral/external levels to non-physical/subjective/internal levels). People who have participated in psychotherapy with me often describe deriving value from increased awareness, insight and understanding about their past and present circumstances, both internal and external. These results have led to resolving external behavioral issues and increasing their level of internal satisfaction about their life experiences.
