"As a clinical psychologist trained as an integrationist, I enjoy working with people from a holistic perspective. I believe it is important to consider not only what is going on in the present, but also what has happened developmentally, biologically, interpersonally,and cognitively. In addition to conceptualizing our experiences as people from a systems perspective, I conduct individual, group, and family therapy using a DBT-informed frame of practice. What this means is that change comes about by learning new behaviors in a variety of contexts while balancing the reality of a person's situation and skill level with acceptance."

"One thing I did not learn growing up was how to understand what was really going on for me. I spent years not knowing how to listen to my own feelings or what to do once I found them. And I am still learning. A little more all the time. I have spent the past decade studying how to become aware of the subtle signals in a situation and how to follow them in a way that shows who we really are and what we really want. The learning and unlearning this takes has become my devotion. Being with others and doing this together had become something I love. "

I hope to collaborate with you to build resilience, transform old patterns and find new pathways to growth and change. Our bodies are foundational to our moment-to-moment experience, holding wisdom that can help us grow and make meaning. Because trauma is often held in the body, we can use somatic mindfulness and more to learn what our body and mind need to set better boundaries, enhance relational connection, and integrate trauma-related feelings and memories.
