Currently accepting new clients. Trauma, attachment + identity impact people in different ways. Do you often feel detached or numb? Do you avoid thinking about the past or self-medicate? Are you concerned about your parenting? Do you often find yourself in difficult relationships? Are you concerned about your memory? Do you feel sad or anxious a lot? Are you "stuck" in the same pattern? Do you have trouble trusting people? Are you irritable most of the time? Do you feel like you don't know yourself or your purpose? Do you feel incomplete or want meaning in life? If you answered yes to any-I believe I could be a good fit for you.
As a psychologist, I received 15+ yrs of training, education, + practice providing therapy + psychological evaluations. I have gained extensive experience in working with trauma, loss, gender identity, + aging/health issues. These issues can become unconscious causing problems in relationships/life + can make you feel anxious, lost, depressed, +/or numb.
I believe that treatment works best when it is suited to your unique personality and needs. Therefore, I use a unique and highly effective multi-modal approach to therapy. Grounded in contemporary relational/interpersonal dynamic theories, I integrate existential, trauma/gender-focused, cognitive behavioral, + mind/body techniques into your therapy.

I approach therapy in a collaborative, integrative, and trauma-informed way. I pull from my expertise in relational, existential, and somatic techniques. My specialty is in using psychodynamic/relational approaches that delve deeper into childhood attachment and trauma. I have recently developed a trauma treatment that has shown significant reduction in trauma symptoms after only 4 sessions.
