My practice focuses on helping individuals, couples, and families who are suffering from emotional or physical pain or the aftereffects of trauma. We help them resolve the traumatic experience, as well as its consequences (e.g. physical pain, stress, disability, depression, anxiety, insomnia, medication dependence, isolation, etc.) Although most of our patients have not responded to prior therapies, we've had outstanding success in helping them move from feeling a severe loss to finding a new and positive beginning. We love to work with people who are ready to change and eager to learn how to do it.

Happiness in life is dependent upon relationships - the relationship with yourself, your partner, your children - and the other significant, albeit difficult, people in your life. The bulk of my practice has focused on this very specialized area of interacting with other people. Whether doing discernment counseling with a couple contemplating divorce, working with couples to discuss and workout seemingly intractable issues----as well as mediation services for divorcing couples, relationships are the foundation of contentment and I have experienced a great deal of success with clients in this area.

It seems like nothing you say gets through to them anymore. When the one you care most about doesn't seem to listen, it's frightening and isolating. Sometimes just talking to an objective person helps you find a way to live a better life, resolve problems, and make better decisions. Suffering originates from not knowing what to do with life’s challenges. Every person needs guidance to leave behind the confusion of the current situation to breakthrough to a future clarity. It's not too late to learn the skills that can get you off to a fresh start. It's time to break those unproductive patterns and replace them with healthier ones.

As a therapist, I am passionate about walking alongside folks as they reveal their truths and vulnerabilities to themselves. I believe, and have witnessed that people are capable of long standing change with knowledge, support, and connection, and that therapy is a great place for that. You can learn new ways to manage life stressors, feel safe, gain confidence, and live a more joyful and purposeful life. I use cognitive behavioral, solution-focused, and strength-based techniques, while never ignoring the human element and connection where the real change happens.

I strive to be a therapist who is empathic and non-judgmental while utilizing insight to help patients to increase self-awareness. I have witnessed clients become more empathic towards themselves as well seeing their suffering decrease. Therapy can markedly improve the quality of clients' relationships, work, and play. An important aspect of therapy is looking at your feelings in the present moment or "here and now" with me. The therapeutic relationship itself helps heal and we will analyze it at times. I aim to create an environment where the client feels safe and free to express themselves to increase self awareness.

In these times of uncertainty, I am here to help. I have years of experience and am able to work with you virtually. Call me! Listening for what is not said is often as important as what is said. No one therapeutic approach suits every client's need, so I tailor my approach based on what's best for the individual. My success with sober clients and others suffering from addictive disorders comes from my willingness to help them navigate the realities of life. Sometimes psychotherapy alone cannot cure mood disorders, just as drugs for depression and anxiety are less effective without concurrent psychotherapy.

Starting therapy can be an intimidating and overwhelming first step. Society often makes us think that we need to be strong enough to handle our problems on our own. However, I believe true strength comes from being able to recognize when you need extra support and being brave enough to ask for it. If you are here, that means you are ready to take care of yourself, challenge yourself, and embark on a journey of self-growth and discovery.

No one ever said it (life, relationships, career, school) would be easy but should it be this hard? Taking the first step to explore therapy can be challenging but it can be helpful to obtain support during times of transition or difficulty. If you are still unsure, or even if you are familiar with the therapeutic process, meeting me and getting more information about how I work just takes one session, and a consultation costs you nothing.

As we begin to understand our thoughts, emotions and behaviors we may be able to face life challenges in more effective ways.

In therapy sessions, I will provide you with support in a collaborative and safe space as you discuss past challenges or current stressors. Sessions are individually tailored to meet your therapy goals.

Self-acceptance, body positivity; the messages are great in theory. But try as you may, you can't seem to live them yourself. It's painful to feel uncomfortable in your own body; the shame, guilt, and hiding's wearing on you. It's painful to feel not enough, thinking, "If only I could look a certain way, then I'll be seen and loved." Starving, binging, or purging to feel a sense of safety- because you're unable to express your real feelings and needs. You're hurt; looking for acceptance in the wrong places from the wrong people. Secretly thinking “I can’t get out from this vicious cycle of negative relationships, food, & body image.

Often times we don't realize that we are living disconnected from ourselves until something big happens that knocks us off balance. We all go through struggle and challenges in our lives, and counseling can help with that. I work with client's looking to use their mind-body connection to tackle their trauma, anxiety, depression, or family challenges. As a Somatic Therapist, I have found that our body-mind connection is one of the most effective and successful ways to get in touch with the unconscious mind.
