Do you feel stuck in your life? Perhaps you experience feelings of depression, anxiety or loneliness. These feelings may be in reaction to problems at work or disappointments in relationships. You may want to connect more with your own wishes and needs so that you can experience engagement in life, and happiness in relationships. Psychotherapy is a journey that can benefit and enrich oneself. The freedom to express painful feelings, in a safe relationship, opens up the possibility of understanding conflicts and experiencing positive emotions, that make life worth living.

My specialities include (but are not limited to): trauma & complex trauma, addiction/substance use, anxiety, depression, identity-related concerns, relational volatility, depression, life transitions, mood instability, and spiritual/existential concerns.
Those I collaborate with have unique lived experiences connected to a variety of complex histories, outcomes, dynamics, and adaptive responses. They’re in search of a therapist who is resonant, attuned, and with the times; someone who can meet them in their intricacies and provide a safe space devoted to the exploration of their inner and outer worlds. My goal is to offer just that: to co-create therapeutic experiences that fully honor the entirety of a persons being - not just their symptoms, identified labels, and categorizations.

I've worked as mental health specialist in secondary & higher education for 20+ years; extensive experience with teens: relational/social skills, identity issues & LD/ADHD/Executive Functioning.
Times of upheaval and change can challenge our long-held beliefs and assumptions. It is hard to know what to expect and who to rely on. Acute stress, which has so many causes, infects our relationships, health, work, school - even relaxation and fun. Stress keeps us in a reactive versus a responsive position. It can lead to coping strategies that are temporarily numbing, but with a high price-tag. We lose clarity around our values, direction & purpose. My job as a therapist is to help clients access the best compass available to chart their course. Call it your "gut"; your inner voice; your truth.

I practice relational-cultural psychology, which means I believe relationships are central to mental health, and cultural contexts are foundational to how relationships are formed, valued and experienced.
I offer a safe environment in which clients can learn and grow. Therapy with me is conversational. I encourage my clients to lead the conversation and I share my thoughts and insights as honestly and sportively as possible. I believe positive growth and change occurs when people feel safe enough to make changes in how they relate to themselves and other people. The more authentically a person knows themselves, the more empowered they are to make life-affirming decisions.

Life can bring an unexpected storm that makes you feel defeated, or overwhelmed within the high waves. Don't give up yet because this will be your opportunity to find your way out of the maze.
