The ideal therapy client would present with a range of issues that you are willing to explore and work on. These could include challenges such as anxiety, depression, stress, relationship difficulties, self-esteem issues, unresolved trauma, personal growth barriers, career issues, or coping with life transitions. You recognize that therapy is a valuable resource for gaining insight, acquiring new tools, and making lasting positive changes. You seek personal understanding, transformation, and improved overall well-being. Life's journey can often lead us through challenging terrains, but you don't have to navigate them alone.

Your trauma, your anxiety, and your fear has taken over your life. You are on edge often times without knowing why. The world feels dangerous and you are afraid. Your inner critic is harsh and unforgiving and it seems like you can never get it right. You are struggling to maintain work or your relationships are damaged and suffering. You feel unbalanced and not grounded, like you need to hold on to something sturdy or you might float away. The voice inside is on repeat saying "you aren't good enough," you're never going to get better," and "you don't deserve this."

Whether you're struggling with anxiety, depression, relationship issues, addiction, or trauma, I provide a safe and supportive space to explore your experiences and work toward greater authenticity and fulfillment.
I specialize in working with individuals and couples from a holistic perspective, incorporating evidence-based modalities to support healing and growth. My practice is informed by the belief that healing occurs within the context of relationships. I approach therapy from a "person in the environment perspective". I help clients explore the dynamics within their families of origin and how these patterns continue to influence their current relationships and sense of self. We will also explore the importance of secure attachments in fostering emotional regulation and resilience.

My ideal client is itching for a change, even if they are unsure a change is possible. They may find themselves experiencing recurrent uncomfortable emotions (grief, depression, shame, anxiety), painful relationship dynamics, or a deep longing to heal a past trauma (sexual abuse or family violence). I cary the belief that change is possible and healing is feasible even when it may feel far off. My work is rooted in attachment theory- which means I hold authenticity, compassion, connection, and unrelenting hope at the center of every session.

I bring my interest in mindfulness and holistic health to problems related to ADHD, trauma, pre/post-surgical adjustment, and menopause.
Although everyone who begins therapy hopes for a more satisfying life, people bring a variety of concerns to their first sessions. In your sessions with me, the emphasis will be on you. You'll find a comfortable place to explore your concerns and dreams and determine how to improve your experiences and relationships. I'll honor who you are--your cultural background, life choices, sexual orientation, and age. I'll offer support and feedback as you work through current and past issues and rediscover strengths that will help you move forward in a positive direction.

Are you yet to find a therapist you feel comfortable with and can relate to? Has previous therapy “only scratched the surface” of the real reasons you are seeking help? You’re not alone. My clients often need a deep sense of connection in order to feel safe in their most vulnerable moments. Most of my clients are looking for a highly-trained psychologist who is not afraid to show her humanity nor bear witness to theirs. I aim to make you feel seen, understood, and safe as you work through difficult emotions and/or painful past experiences.

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...

Because early developmental trauma occurs before your were able to speak, I create a special treatment program that works healing your earliest trauma through the mind and the body! Your in-depth treatment plan will include special body psychotherapy sessions along with traditional counseling.
Things aren't working inside of you. You may have put together a fairly decent life but on the inside, you aren't enjoying it. You may be more and more uncomfortable in your body. You know the "right" things to do but they don't seem to get to the heart of the problem. You may even have tried therapy before without it truly helping. It may not have gone deep enough. You are probably experiencing early developmental trauma that was never properly addressed. Early developmental trauma patterns have a way of resurfacing in times of crisis and change.
