My roots as a therapist and healer have seeded over the past thirty-five years, bringing substance and depth to my one-on-one sessions with couples and individuals. During this time, I have maintained a private practice, which has always consisted of process-oriented consciousness work -- a means by which to enter safely and deeply into the inner landscape of the psyche for positive and real world change. My results-oriented approach to psychology is derived from the commitment to a conscious process and the intrapsychic relationship one can access when choosing to turn toward--and look at--oneself.

Self-acceptance, body positivity; the messages are great in theory. But try as you may, you can't seem to live them yourself. It's painful to feel uncomfortable in your own body; the shame, guilt, and hiding's wearing on you. It's painful to feel not enough, thinking, "If only I could look a certain way, then I'll be seen and loved." Starving, binging, or purging to feel a sense of safety- because you're unable to express your real feelings and needs. You're hurt; looking for acceptance in the wrong places from the wrong people. Secretly thinking “I can’t get out from this vicious cycle of negative relationships, food, & body image.

We all struggle when communicating with our partners from time to time. During lockdown, it may be happening "way too much"! During the shelter-in-place orders, feelings of frustration, fear, sadness, grief, and anger might be starting to build. You might be fighting more, or retreating to your corners and there is an icy chill in the house. Maybe its resentment? If any of these emotions seem familiar, it may be time to reach out for support. I offer in-person and video sessions.

I integrate different treatment modalities but am most aligned with IPT, an evidence-based treatment for depression and postpartum disorders. I believe the therapy relationship is the foundation for change and that change begins once you feel both understood and challenged. Finding that balance between insight and behavior change is the focus of my approach. I have tremendous respect for my clients' backgrounds and truly appreciate how we all adapt to our circumstances.

In sessions I am warm, casual, and conversational. Clients say they feel safe and open to talking about anything without judgment. I take notes during sessions to help guide identification of patterns and stories, which clients comment makes them feel truly cared about and understood by me.
