My goal is to support the whole person in their desire to identify strengths, address their struggles, and to encourage growth. My relational approach includes helping create a safe place in which you feel like you can start the change process. Issues range from impulsivity, anxiety, emotional regulation, unhealthy coping tools, and difficulties working through trauma. I can assist this process with creating genuine connections to begin addressing emotional regulation tactics, stress reduction, psychoeducation of trauma and the brain, and cognitive restructuring.

Living in a world filled with poverty, marginalization, and oppression can feel daunting and make people feel as though they have little agency. Therapy can be a helpful place to explore the places in our lives where we do have agency, where we are able to make tangible changes-often times this is in our interpersonal relationships. As a therapist, I approach my work from a relational cultural perspective, a theory grounded in the exploration of identities, oppression, intersectionality, and their impact on social and emotional functioning.

It would be a gift to work with you on Relational Issues (both intact and non-intact families), Grief and Loss, Anxiety, Depression, Trauma and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder as well as Acute crisis/mental health.
My goal as a therapist and Clinical Supervisor is to increase your zest and vitality for life, to foster your ability to take action (empowerment), as well as to support you in having clarity (a clearer picture of yourself and others). Each of these goals, I believe, lead to an increased sense of self worth. In my time as a therapist, I have found that growth occurs both individually as well as in connection with others and that growth fostering relationships (of all kinds) that are created through mutual empathy and mutual empowerment are a key aspect of all of our lives.

I guide clients in five areas, (mental, emotional, physical, relational, and spiritual) to actualize their authentic, effective, loving, and empowered selves.
We all have a unique expression of life force energy, but at times it may seem the core self--our spirit--has been pummeled by trauma, loss, pain, unhealthy relationships, or life in a toxic culture. Often when trying to make change, clients find that despite being inspired, they can't do what they need to do in order to live the meaningful life they desire. Our thoughts and feelings are connected to our physical state, our relationships with partner(s), friends, family and the culture at large, as well as our spiritual life.

Impossible is temporary. As a relational psychologist specializing in issues like trauma and addictions, I have learned this time and time again. The combination of a supportive relationship, motivation to change well-worn patterns, and clear, concrete guidance can lead to changes far beyond what people believe is possible. Sometimes it seems "impossible" to live a deeper, more connected existence. We may carry scars of rejection and betrayal that keep us from being our truest selves. We heal in the context of genuine, warm, accepting relationships that also encourage us to take risks. I so enjoy building these relationships.

I see therapy as one sacred relational space where together we can learn to be with one another in ways that are less cruel and less oppressive and so result in less suffering.
The foundation of my therapeutic style is a continued invitation to turn your attention towards what is happening for you in the present moment as we work together. If you choose to work with me, you can expect us to curiously explore the ideas, images, memories, sensations, and feelings that are arising for you as they unfold during our sessions. The goal of this kind of therapy is to help you experiment with novel and flexible ways of being in relationship with others and your environment. The primary modalities that inform my practice are Gestalt, Buddhist psych, psychodynamic, ecopsychology, transpersonal, and attachment theory.
