Therapy is a unique opportunity to explore your truest self. It is a space with no right or wrong. I am available for you to discover and be with various parts of yourself. Together, we will explore these pieces and the experiences that cause pain and discomfort; through this, there will be space for healing, understanding, and acceptance. My goal as a therapist is to accompany you on your journey: To guide you in understanding your authentic self as you foster self-love and acceptance for all the parts of yourself.

Many of us hold on to what is familiar, routine and predictable, even when what we cling to is no longer serving us. Letting go of what is known is one of the hardest parts of growth. Change and growth are possible when a sense of security, safety, and genuine understanding is present. I provide individualized, culturally-attuned and effective psychotherapy. You might have tried psychotherapy before, and perhaps it brought you through a stormy time, but ultimately left you to find yourself repeating well-worn patterns and holding the same insecurities that led you to seek help initially.

Therapy should be easy to understand and active from the word go. We don't just talk about the problem or figure out why the patterns are there; we hit the ground running with action and get you feeling better as soon as possible. I work with a lot of folks who have tried therapy before and been disappointed when insight and understanding don't lead to change, and folks who are trying therapy for the first time and want it to be practical and clear. I start with a free 20-minute phone consultation.

Being a licensed psychotherapist since 1986, I've worked with a wide variety of issues. I know that pain and suffering are inevitable in life, but being miserable is optional. With warmth and humor, I am skilled at helping clients make meaning of the suffering, while facilitating and eliciting options that lead out of it. I work with couples and individuals of different races, ethnicities, sizes, orientations, genders, and ages. Therapy is the process of examining your life as a great novel in process of being created. My job is to help you envision and shape the next chapter.

I am a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist. I am also certified in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing). My theoretical orientation is attachment focused, and I frequently employ the use of EMDR. I work with folks of all ages. EMDR is a psychotherapy technique that enables people to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress that are the result of disturbing life experiences. EMDR therapy shows that the mind can in fact heal from psychological trauma much as the body recovers from physical trauma. Using the protocols and procedures learned in EMDR, clinicians help clients activate their natural healing processes.

The key to emotional health and happiness is nurturing the authentic self, the source of one's primary needs and feelings. When we neglect this essential task, our ability to love and work is compromised. Depression, anxiety, and compulsive behaviors are often signs of alienation from the self. In my work, I integrate psychodynamic therapy, mindfulness, and experiential techniques to help each client's real self emerge and develop. In this way, therapy can serve as a catalyst for personal transformation. It can help you overcome adversity and create a productive, satisfying life, in alignment with your deepest values.
