I believe that healing often occurs best in the context of a safe and trusting relationship between a client and therapist. As a psychotherapist, I strive to create a secure, caring, and collaborative relationship with each of my clients so that therapy is a place they feel fully seen, heard, understood, and respected. I work from an integrative and holistic perspective, meeting each client where they are and working collaboratively with clients to reach their own personal goals and to create lasting, meaningful change and healing in their lives.

It's a terrible feeling to be awake at 3 am because your mind is flooded with worries. Your worry may have started as small, but then it lead to another worry... Suddenly, your worries feel overwhelming. You feel shaky and unsettled. It's hard to concentrate on anything but your worry and that restless feeling in your body. You tell yourself, "Just stop worrying about it." You want to let go, but you just can't figure out how. It's hard to not beat yourself up.

Your eating disorder has helped you survive a traumatic and stressful environment, yet you now realize it is no longer needed to keep you afloat. Now what kept you alive for so long is holding you back from moving forward with your life.

At times you may feel too depleted to consider making needed changes in your life, or to know what is even possible to change. Old coping mechanisms no longer work so well, bringing diminishing returns and unhappiness. It may take a crisis to be ready to seek help. Psychotherapy can reveal ways of replacing the behavior patterns and symptoms that cause us trouble with real solutions. Using the insights of existential and psychodynamic perspectives of psychology - including dream work - as a basis, I will help you understand yourself, care for yourself, and discover strength and meaning wherever you may find yourself in your life.

You are brave for being here. You have done your best as a parent, and yet your child is still struggling. It hurts to see them beating themselves down, and selling themselves short when you know who they are at their best. You've heard them say "I'm not good enough," "no one understands me," or "things would be better if I weren't here." Maybe they've turned to self harm to manage their emotions. You want to protect them, help them heal, and show them the beauty you see when you look at them.
