As a trauma therapist I have helped many learn skills to manage symptoms of PTSD and behaviors related to PTSD: substance abuse, compulsive behaviors, eating disorders, suicidal thinking, and self harm.
Sometimes in our lives many of us find ourselves, feeling hurt, sad, angry, lonely, and stuck in old habits. Therapy seeks to assist us in recapturing the experience and feelings of pleasure, freedom, connection, and choice. In therapy this is achieved by exploring our present experiences, as well as, core thoughts, feelings, attitudes, and behaviors. During this exploration the missing experiences are revealed and resources reclaimed leading to a deeper healing experiences and transformation.

I have significant experience working with higher risk behaviors, such as self harm, suicidal ideation, substance abuse, and other addictions.
OPEN TO RETURNING CLIENTS ONLY. I specialize in working with adolescents and young adults ages 13 to 30, but I do treat all adults. I have 20+ years of experience helping young people and their families negotiate major life transitions, relationship challenges, school related academic and social issues, as well as managing symptoms of depression, anxiety, trauma and substance abuse. I understand the neccesity of collaborating with families of teens and individualizing each person's treatment approach. I am also aware of the specific dynamics of many of the local schools and universities, and can help navigate through those systems.

We have all been broken by life, fragmented by negative experiences, and sometimes we feel so broken that we are unable to pick up the pieces alone, but, fear not! Mental, emotional, spiritual, occupational, and social wellness is a process and not a state of mind. It is a level of perfection we ought to continually strive for, because those fragmented pieces of our lives CAN be put back together. Relationships CAN be mended, and CHANGE IS POSSIBLE, but it doesn't just happen; we have to be intentional. "We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope." -MLK

Worried moms & frazzled dads, look no further! Maybe your child/teen is anxious, worried, sad, angry, or acting out. You've tried empathy, rewards, punishments, extra attention, special privileges. You've read books, consulted parenting blogs, & asked other parents for advice. Whatever you try, it may even work for a few days but then all the old problems come right back. Maybe your boy wants to dress like a girl and it's freaking you out. Maybe your teen declares "I'm queer"--what does that even mean? Let's add the stress of Covid-19, and you're exhausted, frustrated, and worried about your child's future.

As a psychologist, I appreciate the opportunity to witness peoples’ capacity for not only surviving, but also thriving in today’s complicated world. My experience over the past decade has brought me to understand the many ways a therapist’s role is akin to that of a gardener tending to a lotus. Just as the young lotus needs tender care and stillness, I provide a safe, nurturing and collaborative environment. Respecting the lotus’s need for sunlight, I approach therapy with warmth, openness and humor. As a Confucian scholar once said, “I love the lotus because while growing from mud, it is unstained.”

I offer therapy and assessment for children, adolescents and adults, to address difficulties with mood, anxiety, attention, learning, emotion regulation, and identity. I am affirmative of neurodiversity, which includes individuals who are ADHD, Autistic, Gifted, or who have learning differences. Traditional approaches often do not affirm the lived experience of a child or adult who is “differently wired” or who is having a hard time. Through open-minded exploration and creative problem-solving, therapy can help to develop greater self-knowledge, confidence, acceptance, psychological flexibility, and interpersonal effectiveness.

Are you suffering from a loss -- or losses -- in your life? Have you lost a loved one? A relationship? Are you anticipating a loss? Loss and grief can be so painful, both emotionally and physically. What was, no longer is. The people and things you believed you could count on may no longer be available. Loss and grief can feel disorienting, like the ground under you has crumbled or shifted and you no longer know what’s up or down. You might feel stuck. You might feel like nothing will be good again. Loss and grief can bring up all kinds of feelings and reactions. They’re all valid.

Finally deciding to seek out therapy can sometimes feel overwhelming and even increase uncomfortable feelings. Finding the "right fit" with a therapist means taking emotional risks to get the support you deserve. For many years I have worked to help individuals regain or perhaps even discover for the first time, a sense of inner peace. My practice incorporates holistic and integrative approaches to treat a very wide range of mental health challenges. I believe "theory" is invaluable, however, experience and research shows that successful therapy is closely connected to the relationship that develops between therapist and client.

I want you to have the best life imaginable: to live in a body that can feel what it feels and with a mind that can know what it knows. I believe we heal through connection and relationship ; it is how we survive then thrive. Sometimes we need to make meaning of our experiences; sometimes we just want to manage or reduce unwanted symptoms and sometimes we need someone to simple be present- to sit and witness and listen or hold the silence. I hope you will find all these elements working with me and together we will walk the path to healing. Come in and let's explore together!

I believe therapy can help one learn to navigate strong emotions and better regulate one's responses to life's challenges. Feeling understood and validated by one's therapist can allow one to develop insight into thoughts, feelings and behaviors. In knowing the context and meaning that underlies how we relate to the self, to others and to the world, we have greater choice in breaking free from distressing patterns that may be keeping us stuck. Over time, the therapeutic relationship becomes the vehicle that allows one to carve a personal and professional life that feels satisfying and deeply meaningful.

Have you become increasingly concerned about your child's behavior at home or school? Do you worry that your child is struggling with day to day functioning? Are their behaviors difficult to understand and manage? Does the smallest thing seem to trigger your child? Is your teen withdrawing and not engaging in activities that once brought them joy?
