Often there is hesitation and fear when we take those first steps toward seeking help. Many people envision a therapist as a disconnected observer; however, my clinical approach is very relational and collaborative, meaning you and I both work together toward your healing. Once we've established a foundation of trust, my style tends toward creative and playful, as I feel the role of laughter is often undervalued in the therapeutic process. Our struggles are not silly, but we human beings often are. People typically enter treatment expecting tears, and they often come, but joy is equally powerful and cathartic.

I have had significant success helping clients deal with issues such as relationships, personal loss, trauma, body image, career development, stress management, depression, anxiety, illness, personal growth and what I call "behavioral decluttering", (elliminating old and unwanted behaviors). My style as a therapist is to help clients identify those areas of their lives which are most troubling and then develop specific goals to ensure that therapy produces important life changing results. The ultimate goal is for clients to eventually serve as their own therapists, applying what they learned in therapy to lead more fulfilling lives.

Coming into therapy is a difficult decision, but one that can bring incredible rewards. My task is to join with my clients as they increase their self-awareness, and to support them as they work through issues and challenges that they feel stuck on. Because therapy is a collaborative process, choosing someone you feel safe with, and understood by, is essential.

Each of us has intrinsic worth and our hearts and psyches have the ability to heal. My work with adults of all ages draws on the expressive arts, motivational and strengths-based therapies and cognitive behavioral and trauma-informed therapies. One of my passions has been exploring the ways in which the expressive arts - visual art, drama, music, movement, writing - touch us deeply and express emotions for which there may simply be no words. Where the response to suffering is compassion and hope, the goals of the individual - not the therapist - inspire the therapeutic process.

Most emotional and behavioral difficulties stem from traumatic events (recent or past). The symptoms of trauma can include nightmares, triggered memories, edginess, avoidance, explosive anger and slow-burning irritability, anxiety, depression and more. EMDR therapy is an evidenced-based therapy and a gold-standard treatment for trauma.

I believe therapy is the process of getting to know and like yourself better. By looking inward, we discover how we support or undermine ourselves with thoughts, feelings, habitual body patterns and behaviors born out of pain and trauma. We start to distinguish our authentic self from who we think we need to be. When we have more information about ourself and more freedom to be authentic, we can then begin to make changes to better support ourself and create a life that is fulfilling.
