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.

Are you troubled by longstanding, pervasive issues -- whether relationship problems, depression, anxiety, emptiness, low self-esteem or even self-hate? Do you have a sense that your problems may stem from childhood wounds or past trauma? People are often unaware of feelings and behaviors that influence their lives. Therapy offers a unique opportunity to explore unconscious assumptions and emotional defenses that cause problems. Painful, confusing feelings become important guides to understanding hidden parts of yourself. Greater awareness allows for better choices, making room for new healthier parts of yourself to emerge.

Some of the questions my clients often grapple with in therapy include: What has served me in the past that no longer serves me? Which choices help me open to experience rather than withdraw? How can I rely on my strengths to overcome obstacles? How do I grow from connections and disconnections in my relationships? I am primarily guided by the unique qualities and needs of each person or couple, and work collaboratively towards their desired outcomes. When appropriate, I provide suggestions for behavioral practices between sessions, in order to bridge what we do in therapy to your everyday life.

The experiences and interactions we have throughout our lifetime can have an impact on our well-being, thoughts, relationships and decision making. As we begin to understand our thoughts, emotions and behaviors we may be able to face life challenges in more effective ways. At times, attempting to understand ourselves without any support can feel confusing or exhausting. In therapy sessions, I will provide you with support in a collaborative and safe space as you discuss past challenges or current stressors. Sessions are individually tailored to meet your therapy goals.

As a therapist, I am passionate about walking alongside folks as they reveal their truths and vulnerabilities to themselves. I believe, and have witnessed that people are capable of long standing change with knowledge, support, and connection, and that therapy is a great place for that. You can learn new ways to manage life stressors, feel safe, gain confidence, and live a more joyful and purposeful life. I use cognitive behavioral, solution-focused, and strength-based techniques, while never ignoring the human element and connection where the real change happens.

Often times we don't realize that we are living disconnected from ourselves until something big happens that knocks us off balance. We all go through struggle and challenges in our lives, and counseling can help with that. I work with client's looking to use their mind-body connection to tackle their trauma, anxiety, depression, or family challenges. As a Somatic Therapist, I have found that our body-mind connection is one of the most effective and successful ways to get in touch with the unconscious mind.

Struggling in relationships with others or experiencing shame? Many of us need to reach out for assistance in order to figure out how to better manage stress and enjoy life, rather then feel burdened by it. This is not weakness or lack of self-will. Rather it is a fact of our existence as human beings. We often need help from one another to accomplish certain tasks we cannot do alone.
