These include relational-psychodynamic therapies, mindfulness-based therapies, and Somatic Experiencing for trauma resolution.
I believe every person has the innate ability to heal and grow. I believe that we can best do so when accompanied compassionately along our journeys. Through increasing self-awareness, cultivating our inner and external resources, and understanding the interconnected influences of mind and body in our daily lives, we can transform through painful times and arrive into greater and deeper capacity for relationships to ourselves and with others. I specialize in working with adults through trauma healing, grief and loss (including that of beloved animals), LGBTQIA+ identities and relationships, depression/anxiety, and life transitions.

In addition to psychodynamically oriented talk therapy, I integrate mindfulness, trauma informed approaches, somatic imagery, and EMDR, all depending on your individual needs.
There are times that you might feel stuck in patterns that make life feel unsatisfying and empty. Maybe you feel depressed, anxious or in chronic pain. You may be negotiating a relationship or trying to adjust to a new job. Psychotherapy allows you the space to understand how your past and present intersect and what gets in the way of living life to your fullest while also helping you to tap into your inner resources. My approach is collaborative, thus giving you the space to reflect carefully. I work with you to develop better coping skills and help you to understand & manage complex feelings of anxiety or sadness.

Single motherhood is one of the hardest jobs. The hours suck, your employees constantly push your boundaries and buttons. There’s always something to clean, something to cook, something to do. Your duties are endless. And, you are expected to be everything to everyone else in the house (and probably outside of the house too). But who are you for yourself? Do you even have an answer to that question? You're doing it all, feeling like a doormat, and OMG the stress and anxiety of keeping up a level of looking "fine" on the outside is soul crushing. How much more are you going to put yourself through before you decide enough is enough?

As a therapist, I hope to broaden the notion of how therapy can look and feel. In session, I seek to provide a safe, warm, nonjudgmental space where you can come and be seen and valued for who you really are regardless of what has happened to you in your life. My style adapts to your needs in the moment and varies from deeply focused and engaged to gently supportive to ridiculous and playful. Just as in life, I feel that therapy can be enhanced by a certain amount of levity, so I tend to incorporate art, movement, play, humor and profanity to facilitate communication of the full range of emotions.
