I have experience helping people manage stress, build self compassion, examine addiction patterns, cope with family member addiction, address developmental trauma, brave parenting challenges, and change the way they approach and interact within relationships.
To others, you seem to have it all together, but the pain of your past and future colliding keeps you up at night. Past injuries have a continual hold on you and influence your most important relationships. Acting in line with your heart does not seem possible when you're caught in these patterns. You are stuck, but things can change. Loving yourself and appreciating each moment is an attainable goal, and one that I can help you reach. Through our conversations, you will gain a better understanding of yourself and your beginnings and start to feel more peace within your life and relationships.

I work with a wide range of psychiatric disorders such as personality disorders, anxiety disorder, depressive disorder, somatic pain, trauma, PTSD, and substance abuse.
I view treatment as a safe space where healing can occur through the process of unpeeling multiple layers of mental and emotional patterns (conscious and unconscious), leading individuals to discover their strengths, true potential and authentic self. In this process, one can feel empowered and inspired to integrate all parts of self, even those hidden from the conscious mind. This delicate work is only possible when trust and alliance are established between therapist and client. The principles guiding this work are unconditional acceptance, compassion and non-judgment.

I am a doctoral-level psychologist specializing in trauma resolution, attachment-related issues, relationship problems, and postpartum mood disorders. I facilitate healing by helping people connect deeply to themselves and others. People tend to seek me out when they feel stuck with their suffering and difficult feelings, and I imagine this is the case with you too. You've tried lots of things to move forward from the residuals of disappointing relationships, traumas, or depression and anxiety, but it isn't happening. Relief has been only temporary at best.

Do you feel scared- or even convinced- that things will never improve? Have loved ones tried to reach out, but you don't feel like they understand your situation? There's a good chance that you are tired of "being strong" or tired of feeling alone. Likewise, there's a good chance that you need some emotional support during this trying time.
