I specialize in working with adults who have experienced trauma of various kinds (illness, accidents, assault, loss) in childhood or adulthood. I have worked for many years with women and men who have experienced childhood sexual, physical or emotional abuse, or adult sexual assault. Recurring thoughts and images about the trauma, or less conscious feelings such as fear and worthlessness, or difficulties letting anyone get close, can persist, even if it happened long ago. My focus in therapy is to help you work through these experiences so they no longer prevent you from living more fully in your present life.

Many of us feel anxious and overwhelmed in our daily lives. Most of the time, we have the tools and support to effectively deal with our anxiety. However, there can be times when we have difficulty managing the stress on our own. Work, family, finances, health issues and other stress can trigger unresolved trauma from our past which often leads to heightened anxiety. Research shows that chronic stress negatively impacts our health and relationships. Whether your anxiety is caused by past traumatic experiences, or a recent life events, we can work together to improve your ability to cope and live a more peaceful life.

"What good is psychotherapy if you're up to your a** in alligators?" A phrase that was used by my favorite professor in graduate school. My goal as a licensed clinical social worker is to meet individuals where they are in life presently, whether they need to process ongoing psychological challenges, or current anxiety and stress related to everyday concerns. With my patients, I want to help process through feelings, thoughts, and behaviors and help facilitate a better understanding of any underlying issues. Ultimately, helping individuals to be able to live a more healthy and productive life.

Welcome! My belief in the healing potential of psychotherapy is grounded in the decades of research on attachment, trauma and the body, and relational neuroscience. Our early relationships and experiences, including trauma, form the lens through which we experience our day-to-day lives. By understanding distressing patterns in our here-and-now functioning as remnants of protective and adaptive functioning in early life, we can move towards change from a place of self-compassion and deep understanding.

It’s painful watching your child struggle. Of course you want to help them, but you’re not quite sure how. Your teen retreats to their room the moment they come home, you want to talk, but it seems they’ve completely shut you out. If you have a younger child, you may have noticed them being more clingy, throwing more tantrums, or having trouble sleeping. These changes in your child or teen seem to be worsening and now it’s reached a point where you may need additional help. While this feels overwhelming and draining for both you and your child, know that change is possible.

Do you get caught up in judging yourself for being overwhelmed by anxiety? Perhaps your self doubts bring on that heart-racing, agitated feeling that makes it hard to focus and get things done. When that frenzied feeling ends in tears or worse, fury, everything can feel out of control. The effects on your children, family, relationships, work, and performance, only amplify your worry. You may even feel like you're failing everyone. Now imagine being able to sort through your fears, worries and responsibilities in a way that doesn’t undo you.

What in your life is not working for you? What if you could identify it, explore it? change it? How would you be leading the life you seek? There is a gross misconception that therapy is for people who are chronically mentally ill. That is not my philosophy. I believe that anyone can be metaphorically driving their car on the road of life and end up off the road, maybe in a ditch. I believe in partnering with my clients to understand the struggle, whether a present challenge, an unresolved past issue, or facing an uncertain future. Together, we can put the car back on the road, or find an entirely new road to follow.

Shifting thoughts and behaviors that no longer serve you can lead a more satisfying and joyful life. Such emotions as grief, depression, anxiety, anger and fear often block you from enjoying a full life. Changing thoughts that manifest negative emotional states, learning more effective communication methods, stopping addictive or self destructive behaviors, and learning stress management techniques are some areas where I offer assistance. I specialize in the treatment of trauma from childhood abuse, as well as PTSD that is the result of other traumatic experiences.
