Sometimes, we get stuck. A problem that may seem small at first just seems to get worse and before you know it, you have gotten lost in a dark place and can't figure out how to get out. As a therapist, I want to be that flashlight that can guide you home. It takes courage to reach out for help, and doing so shows you are ready to find your way back- or to a new, better place! I meet my clients with understanding, non-judgment, and collaboration. Whether it's depression, anxiety, relationship issues, or life transitions- you deserve to find peace, and I look forward to helping you meet your full potential and reach achievable goals.

Things aren't working well for you. You're holding it together, but barely. It feels like everyone's needs are greater than yours, and you wonder whether it's really that bad. Maybe life looks like you intended it to, but you aren't sure why it doesn't feel like the right fit. You feel disconnected and overwhelmed. In your relationship, you know that things aren't working. You try, but you can't seem to make them understand what you need. You want to find your way back to the time when things worked.

Throughout my clinical work, I have found that one of the most difficult steps in therapy is scheduling and attending the first appointment. My aim is to reward that courage by collaboratively working with clients towards reaching their goals. My method is an individualized approach and is couched within a cognitive behavioral and interpersonal framework. I was trained as a generalist in clinical psychology working with a wide array of issues ranging from stress management and life transitions to more severe concerns such as trauma. I specialize in working with LGBQ/TGNC/Non-Binary adults in individual and group therapy.

We offer an ideal approach for anyone who deals with anxiety, inability to focus, dissociation, patterns of unhelpful behavior and other barriers to living the fullest life possible. Existential coaching brings the practices of mindfulness, movement, body awareness, sensation mapping, mind-body integration, and education. Combined with Existential-Humanistic therapy, positive, identifiable and sustainable shifts can occur much more quickly because this combination works from the top down (therapy) and the bottom up (mindfulness, movement, etc) and is, therefore, inclusive of the total experience of being human.

At times, it can be difficult to feel in control, stay motivated, and find fulfillment despite all the pressures from our society and those we develop for ourselves. We arrive at more trying moments at different points in life, and all meet these challenges with unique experiences, beliefs, circumstances, and minds. Many of us are struggling with depression, anxiety, stress, confusion about goals for our future, low self-esteem, body image issues, and relationship difficulties. An effort to deal with one obstacle can lead to developing habits and ways of coping that create new difficulties in another area.

Using a holistic approach, I offer talk therapy in conjunction with meditation and relaxation practices and the option of adding sound healing and energy work as an adjunct to therapy. These methods allow one’s full range of emotions, unresolved traumas, and unconscious core beliefs to rise into consciousness. Once these experiences are permitted to surface and reintegrate in a safe, caring environment, my clients are then able to more consciously work in and outside of sessions to bring increased self-acceptance and self-compassion to their lived moment-to-moment experience. I work with the whole person, not just the mind.

Connecting to our partner begins with understanding our own wants and desires and learning to communicate with one another in the most effective way possible.
