Do you critique yourself often, replay conversations over and over, or think of all the "what ifs"? If so, you may benefit from therapy services. I work with children ages 6+, adolescents, and adults dealing with anxiety, depression, and life changes that are difficult to navigate. I help clients learn how to manage stress and develop insightful decision making skills. I also help clients develop healthy communication skills to increase assertiveness, confidence, and deeper connections with others. Therapy can also help with identifying negative self-talk and coping skills that may be doing more harm than good.

Although we cannot change what has happened to us, therapy can help us feel connected to life again. Extreme stress and suffering due to events out of our control (trauma) can lead to sensations of hopelessness, worry, unexpected memories, and sleep difficulties. I believe that connection to self, others and community is healing. I take an integrative, collaborative, mind/body approach to therapy which includes cognitive work, mindfulness, body awareness, EMDR, among other interventions. My background in Social Work and Public Health enables me to find interventions supported by scientific research to develop a path to wellness.

I help these women address anxiety, stress, low self-worth, self-sabotage, and cultural/ racial identity issues, heal from past traumas, build their resilience, understand their life experiences through a different lens, develop new, more compassionate, ways of looking at themselves, and create new strategies for dealing with what’s going on in their lives.
I work with women who despite all outward appearances of success are struggling internally. Some constantly compare other people’s achievements to their own perceived failures. Some struggle to feel confident and capable in the workplace. Some feel disconnected from and misunderstood by their loved ones. Some have a hard time letting go of old patterns that no longer serve them and may, in fact, have adverse impacts. Some find it challenging to love themselves despite their struggles and flaws. Some discover that their normal coping strategies aren’t working anymore and this affects their behavior/ interactions with others.

Fear, sadness, grief, anger, anxiety, betrayal, confusion, physical pain and other life/relationship/work stresses can leave us feeling lost and out of balance with ourselves and with others who are important to us. I have worked for 20+ yrs. doing both solution-focused and longer-term therapy with individuals and couples who are challenged with such issues. I actively engage with my clients to bring about new insights, and fresh ways of thinking, feeling and behaving where a re-balance can occur.

The Diathesis-Stress model of psychology suggests, GENETICS load the gun and the ENVIRONMENT pulls the trigger. As human beings, we are all biologically vulnerable to experience mental health disorders, although they may manifest in different ways and to different levels of severity. At the same time we are all exposed to environmental stressors that can interact with our predispositions. With any therapist, it is important to develop SMART (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, and Timely) goals that allow us to gain insight into our vulnerabilities and surroundings, to better understand why we react the way that we do.
