“Sensitivity isn't being wimpy. It's about being so painfully aware that a flea landing on a dog is like a sonic boom.” This is a quote from a favorite musician of mine, Jeff Buckley. I see sensitivity as a strength, not a deficit. As a therapist, I work hard to help my clients understand that oftentimes the parts of themselves that they view as weak are really their greatest strengths. The stories we tell ourselves about ourselves are very important. They are the lens through which we view everything- they color our world. The problem is that a lot of the time the narratives we have about ourselves are simply not true.

My ideal client is someone whom is struggling in life and motivated to seek help and make the changes necessary in their thoughts, beliefs or circumstances to get back into wellness. I enjoy working with teens. Most of my career has been with at risk youth. I also work with women's issues, addressing underlying causes of stress and overwhelm. I use Imago and Gottman approaches with couples. When working with men, we discuss the need for vulnerability and self-acceptance. Anxiety, depression, stress, grief and loss can all be successfully addressed with psychotherapy.

I work along side clients to explore the issues they bring to therapy, using a variety of therapeutic techniques, including cognitive behavioral, mindfulness, biofeedback, EMDR, and experiential therapies. I have reduced my practice to working with domestic abuse, since I am working on a book for DV survivors. When clients present with anxiety and/or depression, I assess whether it's the result of stress or trauma, or is biological. I work with those who do not want medication, and also recommend a medical evaluation when progress is not being made, respecting the client's right to decide. I am a good listener and also give people feedback when appropriate.

As a counselor, I utilize a family systems approach in my work with adolescents and their parents in order to assist with restructuring of communication so that individuals can feel heard, respected and have their ideas validated. I also work hard to eliminate cultural biases and meet the client's where they are based on their individual needs. Additionally, I began my training in couples counseling and continue to support couples in appropriately communicating their needs as they develop mutually supportive behaviors together. Another area of focus I enjoy is assisting members of the L.G.B.T.Q community with their specific needs.

I understand that starting therapy can be a scary process. I work to create an open and inviting atmosphere for everyone who walks through my door. It is important to feel like you have a "good fit" with your therapist, which is why I take the time to listen to what brings you in, hear your personal goals and explain what you can expect from therapy. It's not my job to judge, blame, or take sides. I will work with you to provide applicable tools and resources, identify your personal strengths and offer new ways of communicating to provide relief.
