I use natural, non-invasive approaches in therapy which includes Internal Family Systems , Emotional Transformation Therapy, and EMDR.
Life has a way of presenting people with challenges they never could have imagined would happen. This can lead to confusion, depression, anxiety and/or grief. Emotional pain can be as incapacitating as physical pain. My approach helps clients explore the internal messages their body & mind provides by tuning into the wisdom of these internal messages. When clients explore their depression, anxiety, etc. from a non-judgmental, compassionate perspective, it often provides a wealth of information about unresolved fears, strengths & new possibilities. Through conscious choices & greater awareness, it's possible to find enriched meaning in life by bringing curiosity & acceptance to their inner experience.

In working with individuals, I use Internal Family Systems therapy to help clients resolve inner conflicts, making space for seemingly contradictory feelings and thoughts.
"Why is this so hard? We love each other, but we can't stop fighting." I understand the hopelessness of living in a cycle of conflict. I became a couples therapist because I believe deeply in the importance of having a supportive and loving relationship--with yourself and with your partner. I will help you learn how to stop when anger, fear and hurt cause you to react in defensive and aggressive ways toward your partner. By slowing down and taking care of yourself first, you will gradually learn how to connect from a more vulnerable and honest place, creating a more satisfying and peaceful relationship together.

My extensive experience with working with children, teens, and parents along with my training in marriage and family systems , has made me uniquely qualified to assess and improve relationships within a family.
Life might have thrown you a new curveball that has gotten you off balance. OR nothing big has happened, but feelings of being stuck have emerged from somewhere. Psychotherapy offers you a safe place to make changes to old patterns that hold you back. I can help you navigate the uncharted path & assist in developing the insights & skills you need to thrive in life. Therapy works best when we collaborate toward created goals in a respectful & affirming setting. Our work involves identifying & working through unhealthy relationship patterns, helping to change the way you think to improve the way you feel, in order to live your life.

Internal Family Systems ( IFS ) explores hidden beliefs/agendas driving our behavior.
I believe every client enters therapy with a unique set set of needs. My goal is to really meet you where you are, help you gain clarity on what's currently happening in your world and what you want to be different. I use tools from several therapy models with a primary focus on experiential models which allow us powerful access to changing your internal experience.

I may also use an Internal Family Systems approach, Ecotherapy, ear acupuncture, as well as dreamwork and shamanic practices to work with internal mythic structures and narratives.
I work with people who have experienced trauma - this can mean anything from trauma that comes from difficult relationships, to PTSD, war, sexual abuse, accidents, surgeries, and less-than-ideal childhoods. My somatic training also provides expertise in helping those with chronic illness or pain and how this is related to mental health. With couples, my focus is on fostering closeness in order to build more security and enjoyment together. I also have expertise in helping couples with infidelity issues.

My approach is primarily based on Mindfulness Psychology, Internal Family Systems , Jung, and Hakomi.
Occasionally we need someone to help guide us back to ourselves and to ground in that inner knowledge. Whether it is mid-life transitions, loss, trauma, our past history, relationships, or simply the chaotic pace of our modern life that has caused us to lose touch, finding our way back helps us to find what we are seeking. Decisions and life transitions then feel a little less burdensome, our relationships less fraught with conflict, our lives a little more joyful. I think Jon Kabat-Zinn found the most eloquent way of saying it...

I specialize in using DBT, CBT, and IFS modalities to help adults (18+) struggling with substance use, personality disorders, self-harm/suicidal thoughts, emotional outbursts, and other behavioral issues.
We all begin the therapeutic journey with our own set of strengths and needs. Sometimes our uniqueness promotes creativity, new perspectives, and collaboration. Other times our uniqueness can be terminal; leading to emptiness, feeling disconnected from self and others, and beliefs that mental health treatment may work for other people, but it won’t work for you. Therapy is not about “getting over” events and issues; it’s about understanding your triggers and learning how to manage your thoughts, emotions, and behaviors so that you can move forward and continue to build a fulfilling life.

I offer a safe space to work with both the mind and the body using EMDR, IFS , somatic, and mindfulness-based practices to help you heal your trauma, foster your resiliency, and awaken your potential.
Have you experienced trauma or attachment wounding? A single incident, multiple incidences, or long-lasting repetitive traumatic events affect people in very different ways. One thing is certain though; trauma is stored in your body and affects your mind, body, memory, mood, spirit, and relationships with yourself and with others. There is a way to effectively heal your past wounds, cope with your current triggers, and discover your own personal post-traumatic growth for the future.

I use Attachment Theory, Somatic Experiencing, Interpersonal Neurobiology, Emotional Transformative Therapy, IFS , Sand Tray Therapy and self compassion work to help you find your truth and purpose.
Sometimes life can feel lonely, stuck and meaningless. We live in a world that encourages us to cut off from our feelings, from our sense of being truly alive. When we do this, we can begin to feel rigid, anxious, depressed and empty. I am passionate about helping adults with anxiety, depression, trauma, self-esteem and relationship issues. My approach is to help you connect to your body and emotions in a way that helps you know yourself more deeply, feel more confident in your decisions. Using these methods, we can help, pull you out of depression & anxiety spirals.

My therapeutic approach is one of warmth, collaboration, gentle challenges, and laughter! In sessions we will explore the mind-body connection and listen to the insight it offers us, incorporating mindfulness-based techniques, somatic experiencing, Person-Centered, and Internal Family Systems principles.
There is a wealth of wisdom already within you. Together, let's journey inward to find healing, growth, and new revelations. Therapy is for YOU, and together we will find the methods that best foster your growth, whether we are interpreting your favorite song, making pro/con lists, finding moments of silence, or creating a safe place for you to say the thing you’ve never been able to say. Some areas of passion I enjoy working with include religious deconstruction/reconstruction, LGBTQ+, cultivating sexual satisfaction, religious trauma, spirituality, sexual shame/trauma, identity formation, and life transitions.

As a trauma-informed IFS (Internal Family Systems ) Trained therapist, I will work with you from a holistic framework that is guided by your specific needs.
We all do the best we can to cope, but sometimes our efforts throw us out of balance. I work with individuals who are feeling the impacts of these imbalances viscerally, either people who are analytically minded who feel emotions are a hinderance or people who are highly sensitive whose feelings can act like an overwhelming tidal wave. Our imbalances can manifest in depression, anxiety, overwhelming stress, or a dissatisfaction with relationships. In our work together you can expect for us to create treatment goals guided by your core values that move you towards clarity and growth.
