I help people with a variety of issues but some of my areas of focus include: relationship issues, suicidal thoughts and feelings, self-harm, life transitions, parenthood and complex trauma.
Asking for help takes courage when you find yourself overwhelmed and not sure what to do. I approach my work with compassion and understanding. I strive to create an environment for you that is safe, accepting, and free of judgement. I believe that the purpose of therapy is to learn more about ourselves by expressing ourselves openly and honestly without emphasis on what is "right" or "wrong." This can help us identify deep patterns that keep us stuck and create new ways of dealing with life's challenges and being in relationships.

In our work together we will examine top stressors, identify coping strategies, reflect deeply on early experiences, and implement change. Over time, and with compassion, my aim is to support personal growth and self-discovery for years to come. My work is grounded in allowing space for my clients to be the experts.

Constantly coping with trauma, stress, isolation, grief, or substance abuse can make you feel like you are living in "survival mode." Therapy can help you find your way back to the life you want to be living. If you've reached this page, that means you're considering making a change - to better understand yourself, improve your relationships, create new habits, or rediscover your passions. This work can only occur when you feel comfortable and safe with your therapist. That is why I prioritize collaborative, culturally responsive, and patient-centered care.

Despite huge advances in modern technologies to extend life expectancy and increase physical comfort we have made only modest progress in relieving human psychological suffering that manifests as mood disorders and anxiety. It appears that many of our attempts to "fix" ourselves frequently backfire. My approach is highly collaborative and uses the most up to date discoveries in the field of behavioral science to help you "have a mind without your mind having you". Together we can help you gain flexibility that reduces suffering and learn skills that increase values-based living.
