I have particular experience supporting couples, relationship uncertainty and fear, body image challenges, trauma, anxiety, transition into adulthood, and the Highly Sensitive (HSP).
I think that in many ways, mainstream culture opposes our aliveness. Maybe you feel scared or anxious about the uncertainty of life or relationships, or you struggle with being in your body or feeling connected in your life. I don't believe there is anything wrong with you; I believe that you've adapted to a context. As an embodiment-based, relational therapist, I am here to support you in finding wholeness with curiosity and presence. I believe we are multifaceted beings, with a lot more energetic real estate than we give ourselves credit for. Our work will address self-defeating beliefs and focus on fostering more creative ones.

I specialize in working with anxiety / depression, relationship issues, and stressful work environments.
Are you confused about why you feel the way you do? Judging yourself for not being enough? Wondering why awareness isn't enough to change your life? I work with adults and couples on issues related to developmental trauma, relational struggles, and anxiety and depression. Fear, shame and self-loathing that accompanies these issues can be crippling. I work to help you process your emotions and to pragmatically build healthier strategies. I help folks connect mind and body; which I believe creates real, sustainable change. Starting therapy can be daunting, anxiety provoking, and/or exciting. I will meet you wherever you are!

Stepping into therapy may be due to depression, anxiety, phobias, relationship issues, sense of unhappiness, sense of emptiness or inability to find much meaning in life and living. It can be a choice we make to explore ourselves today, examine the past or expand on ideas and future dreams. If you are driven to grow, develop and have a natural curiosity in examining life, living and discovering more about your own path, then psychotherapy is one way to engage in series of exploratory dialogues to live with higher level of awareness & consciousness.

You get to design your relationship the way you want it! I’d like to infuse a sense of playfulness and joy to the work we do together as we explore what is getting in the way of the relationship you desire.
In a culture that equates your productivity to your self-worth, it can be a challenge to feel comfortable and guilt-free when you choose to take care of yourself. I reject the cultural beliefs that shame us and try to force us to endure, rather than enjoy. Seeking help is a show of strength, there is no shame in it, and you shouldn’t have to “tough it out” on your own or “just get by”. Whatever it is about your relationships, connections, or experiences with intimacy that brought you here deserves attention. I’m interested in helping you feel more like yourself, more alive, and more at ease in the world.

Nurturing, nonjudgmental understanding, respect and honesty are at the heart of the therapeutic relationship I hope to develop with you. I believe that these deepest principles are the root of healing and recovery. The therapeutic relationship is where and how this takes place. When we address it in the here and now, then it most often generalizes to the present and future of your life. The foundation of my private practice lies in fostering this experience.

I've been practicing for 35 years. I work mostly with relationship and sexual problems; mood disorders; and work problems. I find that people's needs in psychotherapy differ. Some people need a safe place to explore their inner life. Others need direct advice. Most people need both and I try to provide both. I think people do well when they understand their current problems in the context of their personality and the arc of their life, that is, their past, present, and where they can head.

Relationship Issues Therapists
While need for human connection appears to be innate, the ability to form healthy, loving relationships is learned. Some evidence suggests that the ability to form a stable relationship starts to form in infancy, in a child's earliest experiences with a caregiver who reliably meets the infant's needs for food, care, warmth, protection, stimulation, and social contact. Such relationships are not destiny, but they are theorized to establish deeply ingrained patterns of relating to others. The end of a relationship, however, is often a source of great psychological anguish.
