I offer psychotherapy and coaching for individuals and couples. My approach is collaborative, warm, and very interactive, lending itself easily to both short term goal oriented work and long term depth exploration. I believe that therapy should provide useful day to day tools for lasting change. To that end I specialize in helping couples communicate with one another in a manner that is collaborative rather than aggressive. I also offer professional coaching designed to help individuals better their communication skills in interpersonal relationships and the workplace.

Psychotherapy isn't one size fits all. It's a unique relationship that develops and responds to your needs, life-experiences, ethnic/cultural identity, challenges and resources. You may be feeling stuck-repeating painful patterns, wanting to make changes but not knowing how. Or you're a survivor of sexual violence and the ways you've been coping aren't working anymore. I meet you where you are and bring my clinical and life experience, deep listening, compassion, acceptance, warmth and creativity. Together we create and draw on the power of a safe, accepting therapeutic relationship to support your growth and wholeness.

Let's be honest: you wouldn't be looking at this profile if everything were going perfectly. These are remarkably stressful times – you might be feeling more anxious or depressed; you might have trouble sleeping; you might find yourself feeling restless or irritable or having relationship difficulties. Any of these experiences (and more) can feel hopeless, overwhelming, or that you're the only one who is suffering – DON'T BELIEVE IT! All of these issues can and do improve, but nobody is born knowing how to do it. It takes skills and support, and like any skill, it takes time, practice, and ongoing support.

You’re a paradox. Any of your friends would say you’ve “got your shit together.” And they’re not wrong but that’s also not the whole story. You’ve done well throughout your life. You’re a hard worker. You’re great with people. And you’ve achieved a high level of success. You worry a lot. But who doesn’t? Most of the time it doesn’t get in your way and in fact, it’s been a main driver of your success. You’re detail oriented and you expected excellence of yourself and others. Now and again your worry and anxiety get the best of you and feel as if you’re about to fly apart. Somehow you always find a way to keep it together.

Creativity can be foundational to positive and longstanding change. We come into the world with an innate skill to solve the many problems that arise during development. Sometimes these solutions bring up new challenges or get in the way of our relationships and our ability to enjoy life. I work with children, adults, elders, and couples who are struggling to adapt to a stressful world. By developing a trusting relationship where exploration is welcomed and analyzed, we are able to find new ways of functioning, new solutions to our interpersonal conflicts, and improve our ability to flexibly adapt to our changing world.

It feels like you're at a breaking point, something's got to give, so you're thinking "well, maybe I'll give therapy a try before I just accept that this is how things are for me." You may feel like there's something wrong with you, that you're alienated and alone in this. I can assure you that you're not alone. I offer a safe space to co-explore what's been bringing you down, the underlying beliefs, past traumas, and ruptures in relationship that have helped to inform your present experience. You can and will create a more useful story that isn't so hard to bare, it may even propel you faster towards what you want and need.

Are you struggling with anxiety or depression? Or perhaps, you’re struggling with both. You experience excessive worry & thought traps that you can’t seem to get out of. You ruminate about issues from the past, present, & worry about all the future “what if’s.” You feel mentally & emotionally exhausted. Your heart races, you’re restless, you have trouble concentrating, & panic attacks creep in without warning. It’s a real pain the butt, just like depression! When you’re feeling depressed, doing basic things can be really, really hard. The low self-esteem, lack of motivation & bully in your head are crippling. It's exhausting...

Making the choice to seek support and guidance is very powerful as it means that you are looking to create a shift within yourself, and what you are currently doing is no longer working for you. When we experience life's challenges and transitions, it is so common for us to feel overwhelmed, confused, and very much stuck in the negative cycle of our circumstances. What I aim to do is work collaboratively with you to create forward movement in your life, and ultimately to create multiple opportunities out of challenge.

Identifying these patterns and developing strategies to overcome them can empower you to get unstuck and move toward your goals.
