The decision to seek therapy takes courage. I aim to provide a non-judgmental space that allows you to feel comfortable and understood. The best outcome in therapy comes from a trusting and collaborative relationship between the therapist and you. In my work, one of the main outcomes is for you to appreciate your strengths, how you have used your strengths to overcome previous challenges, and how you can use them to face current and future situations.

Traumatic and stressful life experiences have made it challenging for you to live life the way that you want. You find yourself struggling with thoughts like, " I'm not good enough", "I'm a failure", or the feeling that "something is wrong" with you. You've struggled with anxiety or depression for as long as you can remember. Living this way is exhausting, and you want something different. Regular talk therapy can be helpful, but sometimes it's not enough. Brain- and body-based therapies, such as Somatic Experiencing, Brainspotting, and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing ( EMDR) can help.

I work with children, parents, families and individual adults to improve emotional regulation skills, decrease symptoms of anxiety and depression, and become more mindful and present in every day relationships. Individuals in a variety of life stages experience developmental “growing pains” that impact the ability to cope with intense emotional triggers. I will individualize treatment for each client to use the modality that best works for that person’s unique internal system. My goal is to help clients develop a sense of curiosity and compassion for all parts of themselves so that we can work together to heal the pain.

I have worked with individuals, couples, and families on a variety of overlapping issues such as anxiety and depression, self-esteem, parenting children with special needs, setting limits with adult children, work/life balance issues, and sexual desire issues in committed relationships.
