I love helping adults who are ready to make a change and want to address: trauma, relationship difficulties, issues with food and body image, chronic stress, anxiety, panic, or depression through building tangible tools and mindfulness-based skills. I welcome clients of diverse backgrounds and seek to provide respectful and culturally sensitive services to all. As an immigrant myself, I have a special appreciation for the experience of first and second generation immigrants. My approach draws from mindfulness, body-oriented interventions, parts work, evidence-based modalities, advances in neuroscience, and attachment research.

So often self-work involves degrees of correction and vigilance that can actually make you feel less connected to yourself. You want to better understand yourself and your relationships so that you can feel more whole and authentic. You are curious how your past connects to your present problems, and why certain narratives repeat themselves. You want interpersonal interactions to feel less complicated at work, at home, and with friends. You are tired of trying so hard to analyze and figure out your part in these relationships to no avail. You want to find the right solution, but in doing so end up feeling isolated.

It takes courage to reach out for support. Often people reach out when their usual strategies to manage their life fail, and they feel stuck. Are you feeling like you can't think or talk your way out of your unhappiness? The role of the therapist is as a facilitator or guide to help you identify the patterns that are no longer working for you, and develop strategies to heal and change. I will work with you to develop a plan in therapy that meets your individual needs and goals. My style is to give a combination of compassion, honest feedback, non-judgment, humor, and warmth.

Beginning a course of therapy, whether for yourself or for your child, is an act of loving commitment. I see therapy as a collaborative process, something we do together as you or your child navigate through stuck patterns and toward health and wholeness. My style is warm, relational, and sincere. With both child and adult clients, I work actively with thoughts, emotions, and body sensations. My office is calming and inviting, and equipped for both play therapy with children, and hands-on somatic therapy with adults. We can do either brief goal-oriented work or longer-term depth work.

I want the people I work with to learn how to go through those lonely, sad, stressful, and worried times with a fighting chance for a new possibility and better outcome. Exploring your history and learning how to cope with known and unknown patterns working against you can build newer and healthier patterns. Controlling the intensity of your emotions and bringing new passion and excitement to your relationships takes practice and a little time for the process to take hold. I believe we can do the necessary individual and couples therapy to increase your satisfaction of a life well-lived.

Transitions in our lives need to be marked and held to be integrated. The journey through can be dark and confusing, and how we adapt, grow, and who we look to for support, will illuminate our paths. I have had a focus on those contemporary rites of passage within my own experience, coming into adulthood, birth and parenthood, through relationships, my own identity, and facing our last goodbyes to loved ones. My work as a birth doula drew even more emphasis on the importance of our experiences around pregnancy and childbirth, and how celebrating the changing of our seasons was crucial to our sense of self.

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 view therapy as a collaborative process where we work together to understand the challenges you are facing. My initial goal is to provide empathy and relief, while working in the longer term to help you feel more open and able to access parts of your experience that may be hidden. This can be scary and vitalizing, and I view work with each client as a unique journey where the path to healing unfolds over time. For me, the ultimate goal of therapy is to help you both accept and challenge yourself, and thereby become more fully who you are.
