I'm a psychotherapist, relationship specialist, wife and mom. Many of us can recognize patterns of our behavior that were previously helpful but now get in the way of the kinds of relationships we want. In many ways navigating difficult circumstances allowed us to survive or even thrive, however the ways we find now to cope don’t benefit us in the long run. The ways these interactions show up can surprise us at times, because while our lives can feel full and abundant, there can also be a flip side of sadness, resentment, and worry.

Seeking support requires plenty of courage, strength, and determination. Taking the first steps toward change can feel both invigorating and nerve-racking at the same time. I aim to create a warm, supportive, and non-judgmental space for you to share your life experiences. One of our most fundamental human needs is to form connections, and I strive to utilize our therapeutic relationship as a guide for growth and healing. As a partner in your personal journey, I hope to empower you to gain the valuable insight and practical skills essential for overcoming obstacles, achieving your goals, and living a well-balanced, self-fulfilled life.

Are you tired of feeling stuck and that nothing seems to change no matter what you do? Maybe you are feeling overwhelmed and anxious and it’s starting to affect your relationships and your work. Or maybe it’s because you’re in a relationship where you have the same fights over and over and nothing seems to get better. Unresolved hurt and resentment may be making you feel distant from your partner. You may long to be closer but feel unsure that things can change. Feeling disconnected or distant from others is painful and can leave us feeling alone, insecure and full of self-doubt.

Choosing a therapist can be intimidating, especially for people of color. We might find ourselves wondering if our therapist will "get" what it's like to be us. I believe each person, couple, and family brings with them a set of unique experiences, values, and goals, often influenced by various cultural factors. Perhaps you are an individual looking for a safe space to explore your identity, including race, ethnicity, and gender. Maybe you are in a cross-cultural relationship and want help navigating tricky topics productively. It could be your family is in conflict around generational differences and opposing values.

Coping with Covid-19 & shelter in place: We’re living in a time of uncertainty, stress and anxiety that is likely once in a lifetime. Survival fears about sickness and death have suddenly surfaced in a manner that most of us have never experienced. For those of us that have pre-existing PTSD, depression or anxiety, those feelings may be particularly amplified. We’re all seeking safety, comfort, and connection during this environment of extreme isolation. In response to these realities, I am offering therapy sessions, including EMDR using Zoom, FaceTime, or phone. Take care of yourselves and take care of one another.

Do you feel tired and overwhelmed? Are you exhausted from bobbing and weaving around the needs of others? Is it difficult for you to ask for and trust in help? While you feel depleted, there is still a spark within, guiding you to focus on your own wellness. Your head is barely above water, yet you are determined to emerge and need help to do so. Perhaps it is time to enter a relationship with a therapist; a collaborator who can journey with you to explore your past, build mindful awareness in the present, and develop skills to achieve your future goals of self compassion, acceptance and authentic connection to yourself and others.

It can be hard to recognize at first, but painful experiences often provide opportunities for immense personal growth and deeper connection to yourself and others. They offer a chance to tap into our own innate wisdom and capacity to grow, while developing new strategies for navigating life’s inevitable twists and turns. I provide strength-based, trauma-informed, somatic psychotherapy to youth, adults, and families who are seeking support with changing patterns that no longer serve them, creating a path towards greater resilience and meaning in their lives.
