I work with individuals who feel their lives are hindered by unwanted or distressing feelings, or self-defeating patterns of behavior, and who experience depression, anxiety, anger, low self esteem, compulsive or impulsive behaviors, or relationship difficulties. By establishing more effective coping skills and responses, positive changes can develop and lead to a greater sense of fulfillment. I approach each individual treatment collaboratively, exploring the foundation of the problem, identifying problematic patterns, and then developing treatment goals tailored to the unique needs of each individual client.

My therapy work is focused on emotional health and wellbeing. I work individually with clients and tailor treatment to best fit each person's concerns, character and goals. I do this by integrating insight-oriented treatment and establishing new ways of being in the present. This combines the exploration of long-standing maladaptive patterns and a focus on present-day functioning. I help also people examine and improve relationship dynamics.

Seeking help takes courage. I am invested in working together toward making the changes you seek by creating a safe, trusting environment where we can explore the roadblocks holding you back. I practice in a holistic community where many modalities of treatment are used to promote healing. Do you feel "keyed up" most of the time or continue to behave in damaging patterns where you know the "why" but can't seem to make changes? Talk may not be enough.

My approach to therapy incorporates elements of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Humanistic Therapy to help clients align their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors with their values. I believe clients have the power to improve their lives by reinterpreting their experiences and identifying what they can and cannot control. I also believe systemic injustices and entrenched hierarchies based on race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, spirituality, class, ability, and other factors play important roles in shaping personal experiences.

I use a warm, integrative approach to help change behaviors and identify patterns that prevent clients from living the way they want. We might start by targeting your day-to-day challenges, exploring the relationship between your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors to open a path to change. The next step is often to work backwards, seeking insight and acceptance of past experiences that can impact our adult lives in ways we do not recognize. My clients struggle with a wide range of issues like anxiety, depression, low self-esteem and self-criticism, perfectionism, issues with food and body image, and unsatisfying relationships.

If you're looking for a therapist, there's a good chance you feel like "something" in your life isn't working -- perhaps within yourself, a relationship, or your career. Sometimes it's hard to know what that "something" is, and, other times, the feeling may be directly connected to a specific event, relationship, or personality trait. As your therapist, I will work with you at a pace that feels manageable, and together we will reflect on what feels like it's not working and identify possibilities that may bring relief or change.
