"Life brings many changes, and sometimes these changes can throw us off track. It helps to talk with someone who is objective in order to gain perspective, sort through what is confusing, and identify new ways of thinking, feeling and behaving. Are you struggling to cope with stress, life change, sadness or depression, loss, relationship issues or other such challenges? Would you like to break old habits and learn new ways to cope? I can be your co-pilot."

"Asking for help is hard. It can be difficult to open up to a new person about fears, insecurities, and personal history. Given these challenges, I work to provide a safe environment for clients to explore worries, feelings of sadness or hopelessness, or just a general sense of being "stuck." Together we can develop immediate coping strategies as well as meaningful, future-focused change. My practice is grounded in social justice and feminism, and I have a passion for working with women. I use a strengths-based, trauma-informed, cognitive behavioral approach that incorporates evidence-based practices, empathy, and humor."

As a seasoned therapist and performance coach my ideal client is one who seeks a collaborative relationship and is eager to invest in greater self understanding and willingness to take action. Clients battling stress related issues that compromise performance in work, school, or intimate relationships are a good match. Transforming anxiety, despair and self doubt into courage, inspiration and confidence is my strength. I'm comfortable addressing thoughts that disempower or emotions that are frightening.

"(I am not accepting new clients at this time.) In therapy, we zoom in and out across multiple layers, sometimes viewing problems through the lens of history and culture. Therapy might examine how relationships and larger systems maintain or reinforce unwanted symptoms and negative views of the self. It may not be your sole responsibility to heal familial or societal wounds--however, changing individual behavior patterns can positively affect the system as a whole. I work well with clients who are socially conscious and critical, who seek to align their behaviors with their values."
